Combining TRADITIONAL craftsmanship with a MODERN ethos, skillful design has created a LUXURIOUS but comfortable FAMILY HOME with an unusually high standard of finish, and which maximises both the light within the home and the restful, leafy views brought in- a rare find so close to Godstone Village.
Outside, this 18th century coach house design is attractive with an original CLOCK TOWER and the impressive front door opens to a welcoming hall with Italian Travertine flooring, exposed Ragstone walls and characterful beams throughout.
To the West wing of the house: Kitchen/ dining/ family room/ living room, utility area. Designed to impress, the spacious kitchen offers plenty of space to dine, and the South facing garden ensures it’s light all day. Doors open to a broad sun terrace and views over the tennis court and swimming pool with approximately 4 acres of paddock adjoingin the National Forest. Spectacular glimpses of the North Downs can be seen from the garden as well as a full view of the Clock tower and the Victorian green house. Sweeping into the family room, the sociable flow between the house and garden provides plenty of opportunities for summer soirees, then leading down to another reception room, it’s spacious layout provides scope for whatever suits your living needs. Terracotta floor tiles lead through a small hallway where a utility room, shower room and storage cupboards rest.
Of elegant proportions, the main living room is light and airy during summer, with a view to the front courtyard which has a very ‘French Chateau’ feeling about it, with a magnificent brick fireplace. To the East wing of the house: Further reception room, study, bedroom, en-suite bathroom.
Peaceful and private, the East wing of the property dates to 1769, with further period features. Upstairs there are six good sized bedrooms, three bathrooms and the master bedroom to the East wing of the house has an arch window overlooking manicured gardens, designed by Gertrude Jekyll.
"There are 4 acres of land (ideal for equestrian use) and ‘for Sale by separate Negotiation’ should anyone be interested. The land adjoining a beautiful Woodland maintained by the Surrey Wildlife Trust of which we have enjoyed regular dog walks in.
This property holds so many historical features such as the English Heritage triple garage, a unique fireplace in the additional reception room off the East wing, beams, the clock tower itself and many more. It has been a fantastic home for my family to grow up in and now my children have flown the nest, I am looking to downsize and I will be sad to leave this wonderful property."
