Tucked away in a private drive, The Coach House is one of the original 18th Century properties in the village and was a coaching house for nearby Purley Lodge. The property has been updated and altered over the years and is usefully unlisted. The bright and spacious accommodation has great flexibility for use as a home office with inverted, upside down living spaces and bedrooms on both the ground and first floor. This would make an ideal annexe for relatives or a gym or workshop. The south-facing, part-walled garden is particularly private and has fine views across fields to the Chiltern escarpment, enjoying spectacular sunsets. EPC rating F.
The Coach House is in a quiet location in the village of Purley-on-Thames.
