For lovers of period property, this is a rare opportunity to purchase an iconic village home, beautifully maintained with classic Edwardian red brick elevations and a white rendered and beamed façade.
Entering via a charming porch, the period theme continues with beautifully proportioned rooms, generous ceiling heights, grand fireplaces and wide bay windows. The entrance hallway is welcoming and wide with an elegant rising staircase and glazed patio doors at the rear creating an abundance of light and immediate views of the rear garden.
Tiled flooring leads you into the Kitchen/Diner, a superb room divided into two distinct areas with a lovely view of the garden plus Bi-fold doors opening onto a private courtyard garden from the Dining area. The kitchen is fitted with an impressive range of bespoke hand painted cabinets including an island unit, together with granite work surfaces. The majority of appliances are built in to include a large Britannia range cooker and the Utility room leading off provides space for the laundry white goods. Conveniently placed for modern family living is the Study/Playroom which leads from the Dining area and which has views over the drive.
The two principal reception rooms are light and elegant, arranged beautifully, both with working fireplaces to provide a choice of Sitting rooms to enjoy.
Upstairs, a generous landing with a return bannister and large landing window, gives access to all the bedroom accommodation and the family bathroom. The master bedroom on the front benefits from the bay window overlooking the front and boasts a luxury en-suite shower room with Hans Grohe fittings. The Guest bedroom also offers en-suite shower facilities whilst the two remaining bedrooms use the nicely fitted family bathroom complete with separate shower and bath. Bedroom 5 is currently fitted out as a Dressing room but could easily be changed to a Study or indeed, a small bedroom.
The surprise "wow factor" comes with the addition of the vaulted family room accessed by a concealed door from the rear of the Sitting room. Designed and created in recent years by the current owner, this fabulous, additional living space arranged over two floors with open plan mezzanine area, can be used flexibly to suit individual needs but is essentially the ideal entertaining area with its vaulted ceilings and bi-fold doors opening onto a raised patio.
This is a fine example of successfully combining contemporary design with period features to make the most extraordinary and pleasing character home in one of Surrey's most sought after villages!
