Full description

Tenure: Freehold


A substantial attached character property requiring total refurbishment and occupying a rarely available half acre plot within a short walk of the station.


An exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a 'forever home' in one of Claygate's most highly regarded roads within a very short walk of the station. The location of this home really couldn't be better with Rowan Prep school right on the doorstep and the village primary school also very close by. Dating in all probability from the early 1900's, 'Athelney' is a substantial and imposing home of immense character with very generous ceiling heights and the significant benefit of what must be one of the largest remaining plots in the village, extending to just over half an acre in all. The property now requires total refurbishment and for contemporary living, a degree of reconfiguration will be necessary to arrive at a good long-term layout. The principle accommodation is currently arranged across three floors. The ground floor consists of vestibule, entrance hall, generous sitting and dining rooms, morning room, potting room, kitchen with walk-in pantry, boiler room, small utility room and cloakroom. The sitting room offers direct access to the rear garden and a sunny verandah. On the first floor there are four generous bedrooms, one with en suite, a family bathroom, separate WC and balcony to one of the rearmost bedrooms enjoying glorious views across open countryside. On the second floor there are three further bedrooms., all very large in scale with only two of these rooms having their own access. A shared bathroom on this floor would be an excellent use of the smallest of the three rooms. Ample parking is available courtesy of an integral garage and forecourt and drive to the front of the property. Aside from the location of this property, the outstanding feature of the house is the mature plot of just over half an acre and which consists of formal areas of garden chiefly to the rear of the property with fabulous views across countryside. The main section of garden is predominantly laid to lawn and gently graduated with a length of 303 feet x 72 feet (maximum).
