The East Wing, Daneby Hall is a substantial Victorian wing of an imposing country house set on the rural fringe of the sought after village of Fordcombe. We understand from the current vendor that the house was originally built in 1901 and then later extended in 1904 to be used as a single residence. During 2010 the property was divided into its current layout providing the two large wings. Internally the property offers wonderfully proportioned rooms with period fireplaces, doors and cornice to many of them. In recent years the property has been fitted with double glazing and a dual boiler split central heating system with radiators. This home is particularly versatile with accommodation arranged over the three floors allowing reception rooms to be on the ground and first floor as well as the ability to create a separate annexe with its own entrance. The property benefits from a great deal of privacy from the road as mature trees and shrubs provide extensive screening, whilst the rear garden enjoys far reaching views towards the North Downs. This truly is a quite remarkable home that really must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
