Full description

Tenure: Freehold

In one of the most sought after locations in the area, conveniently placed for access and yet close to lovely open countryside being within green belt land and adjoining a conservation area, this is a detached house of quality, extended and refurbished by the present owners. With handsome exterior elevations the property has red brick detailing to the corners and windows, double glazed, leaded light windows and presents as a spacious and charming family home. Accommodation is laid out over two floors. The gracious reception rooms, two of which have restored parquet flooring, all lead off a spacious reception hall. A wide staircase with oak balustrade and feature window, lead to the first floor. The sitting room has French doors out to the rear terracing and a wood burning stove, whilst the family room has a bay window and a gas fire in a heritage style surround. The kitchen/breakfast room is comprehensively furnished with a range of wall and base units with granite work surfaces and is supported by utility and boot rooms. A shower room has doors to the outside and is therefore ideal as a changing room for the swimming pool. Five bedrooms are arranged over the upper level, serviced by four bath/shower rooms, three of which provide en-suite facilities. Above the first floor is a boarded loft room with two Velux windows.

Situation

Ideally located on a quiet residential lane with a rural setting yet easy access to transport and direct access to the beautiful countryside of The Surrey Hills.

Caterham is 2.4 miles with high street shopping and a station. The M25/M23 is quickly accessible just 2.4 miles away. Local schools include a primary school within walking distance at Chaldon, the popular Caterham School and De Stafford.

Close by are equestrian establishments, tennis and bowling at Queens Park and the Surrey National Golf Course.

TRAIN SERVICES: Coulsdon South Station is 2.3 miles with fast direct train services to London Bridge & Victoria in circa 25 minutes and also direct services to Gatwick Airport and the south coast.

Outside

The property is approached via a sweeping gravel drive, leading to a detached triple garage, which has a very useful studio over and having water, electricity and drainage might be suited to conversion to ancillary accommodation subject to the necessary consents. Mature gardens surround the house, providing interest and seclusion. Tall mature trees, clipped hedging and colourful shrubs give way to herbaceous borders and large expanses of level lawns. A paved terrace adjoins the rear of the house and is ideal for outdoor entertaining, whilst the swimming pool has its own terrace and tucked away towards the rear of the garden is a summer house with water and electricity, situated on what was the original tennis court, beyond which is a further area of lightly wooded, lawned garden.
