7 bedroom property for salePark View Road, Woldingham

Gabilan House is located on one of Woldingham’s most sought after private roads within an easy walk of the village centre and train station. The property forms a detached Victorian villa originally built in 1895 with additions. The residence would have originally been described as a large family house suitable for servants. The principle accommodation is characterised by high ceilinged rooms served by a German fitted Kitchen Diner at its heart. The entire house has undergone a programme of modernisation in recent years which includes full triple glazed Scandanavian windows and replacement doors. Heat retention and insulation have been further improved by the addition of underfloor heating to the ground floor where there is newly laid light oak engineered flooring to most areas; hardwood maple flooring also enhances the upper floors.
Landscaped grounds surround the property and a planted stone courtyard forms a sheltered sun trap to the south leading to the newly converted self-contained annex which benefits from modern accommodation over two floors. This includes a games room, living room, kitchen and to the first floor a double bedroom with wet room. On the lower lawn stands a purpose built studio currently in use as a gym. Large bi fold doors capture the splendour of Marden park to the south west and there is an integrated sound system.

Outhouses adjacent to the property provide for garden machinery and boot room next to the Kitchen which also houses two gas fired boilers. Further store. The grounds are more wooded at the approach from Park View Road where a sweeping driveway descends to the house. A courtyard provides for a sheltered seating area and a pathway leads out toward the lower garden where there is a fruit cage and raised vegetable beds. A large lawn occupies a level area capturing the ever changing vista and there are also a number of young productive fruit trees.
