Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The approach, just off the Portsmouth Road leads down a shingled drive to only three properties, all with parking to the front. A picket fence and gate set the scene for a deep front garden with central path leading to the front door of this delightful cottage, which we believe originally dates back to around 1730.

This is the first time it has been on the market for over 30 years and now offers the new purchasers a chance to create a wonderful home in an unrivalled setting. There is scope (subject to planning permission) to extend and enlarge the house and ultimately create a panoramic glass balcony overlooking the race and golf course.

The entrance porch leads into the main reception area which is dual aspect, with exposed ceiling beams and an open tread staircase leading to the first floor. This room leads to the pine fitted kitchen with a range of wall and base units with worktops, a stainless sink unit with a mixer tap, an Indesit built in oven with a grill above and a separate four ring electric hob, space for a washing machine, a Whirlpool integrated dishwasher and a Concord central heating boiler, fully tiled walls and floor and there is a double glazed door leading to the rear entrance lobby with space for an additional fridge freezer and a stable door to the garden. The main bedroom is L shaped to incorporate a dressing area with a window overlooking the front garden. The bathroom is off the reception room via a lobby which houses the airing cupboard with an immersion tank. The bathroom suite consists of a shower cubicle, corner bath, wash hand basin and low level WC.

Upstairs, which was originally a further two bedrooms, has been opened up and is currently used as a large dual aspect lounge with a study and storage area at the top of the stairs, which would be an ideal area to convert into an en suite bathroom. This room has stunning views across Sandown and really lends itself to create bi fold doors out onto a large balcony to further appreciate the fantastic setting which is South West facing.

The rear garden is mainly paved with a timber shed and a close board fence, with a side pedestrian access to the manicured lawned front garden, with its well stocked flower border, mature shrubs and a cherry tree.

To the front of the property there is off street parking for a couple of cars. This is a unique character home with a pretty front garden and wonderful views from the rear of the property over Sandown Racecourse and is within close proximity of both Esher High Street and the train station. Properties of this nature and location will understandably attract a huge amount of interest and I therefore urge you to contact this office without delay to secure your viewing.

Esher High Street with its cosmopolitan range of independent boutiques, restaurants and bars is but a short distance away and Central London is approximately 20 miles with the A3 and M25 Motorway nearby. The average journey time to Gatwick and Heathrow Airports is in the region of 30 minutes and direct trains run to London Waterloo. This part of Surrey has an enviable reputation for its excellent, first class state and private schools and there is also a wide selection of fine golf courses and recreational facilities throughout the district.
