Property Description

Full description

Distinguished late Victorian family residence with annex situated within this sought after neighbourhood, walking distance to Woldingham Station, on an established plot of 0.7 of an acre.

Kerb appeal is the first phrase that comes to mind on approaching Heronsforde.  A sense of grandness and opulence of the Victorian architecture is captured from the entrance to the sweeping carriage driveway.  A welcoming recessed porch and bay window with dormer above relieves the pleasing tile hung and white rendered elevations.

This is a fine home which has remained in family ownership for many years.  With character in abundance the rooms are large and functional, characterised by high ceilings, plaster cornicing and intricate detailing.  Nowhere is this more apparent than in the elegant triple aspect drawing room featuring a Queen Ann style fireplace with inset green marble and polished hearth.

The four reception rooms and rear conservatory addition are served by a well-proportioned oak fitted kitchen/ breakfast room located at the heart of the house.  The conservatory was designed by David Salisbury Joinery Ltd.  Other benefits include a comprehensively fitted first floor study and an excellent cellar with good headroom which provides for storage and would make a useful work shop.

Connecting with the kitchen are the large utility, bathroom, billiard and family rooms, originally designed as an annex with separate entrance to the rear from a pathway to the left hand side.

Large timbered windows with transom lights afford differing aspects over the private gardens that face south. To the first floor and from the front distant views can be enjoyed across the valley.

Outside the gardens surround the property to all sides and offer an array of flowering plants in established and well cared for herbaceous borders.  The grounds are not overlooked and fringed by mature trees providing areas of sun and dappled light.  A charming loggia forms a relaxing covered seating recess in the western elevation. The large stone terrace is retained by shaped dwarf walls giving way to lawned areas. There is a fish pond and also a rose arbour which forms a walk way screening the driveway.

The parking areas are extensive and there is a shingle driveway leading to a double garage with power and light.


The village of Woldingham continues to be extremely popular offering a tranquil country setting, away from the bustle of the city yet within easy commuting distance. Noted for the popular Woodlea Junior School and highly rated Woldingham Girls School the village has an active community at its heart. The village hall hosts many social activities and the parish council are actively involved with the daily life of this North Down idyll. The village centre, a short walk from the house, offers a convenience store and post office serving most daily needs, together with a saddlery and repairs and servicing garage. Local amenities include golf at North Downs and The Woldingham golf clubs, tennis, cricket, amateur dramatics and other societies/groups, together with horse riding facilities.  There is easy access to surrounding Green Belt countryside with its network of footpaths and bridleways.

Woldingham Station offers a frequent service direct to London Victoria and London Bridge (approximately 35 minutes) and, changing at East Croydon, to other London stations including Blackfriars, City Thameslink, Farringdon and St Pancras International and via Clapham Junction to other locations.  The M25 London Orbital motorway (Junction 6) is only 4 miles distance. The local towns of Oxted and Caterham are a ten minute drive.

Heronsforde is only a short walk from the train station (via a footpath which cuts the corner) where there is a frequent 35 minute service connecting to London Bridge and Victoria on the Oxted line.  

Surrey County Council accept that Park View Road is a public highway, known technically as a private street which means it is a public right of way that is maintained at the frontages' expense.
