Nestled at the foot of the Hawthorn’s School, this detached house dates back to circa 1870. The main house has four substantial bedrooms, beams and oak floors. There's a formal dining room and the sunny conservatory opens to the beautiful garden which encircles the property. An immaculate studio/ annex is detached from the main house and surrounded by scented plants providing quiet accommodation for guests.
Situated on the edge of the beautiful village of Bletchingley, just yards from public houses, shops and transportation links, this fascinating, evolving family home has been exceptionally looked after with high spec alterations to the property, which have created a beautiful, light filled home with an easy flow ideal for a contemporary lifestyle.
The front door opens to a welcoming entrance hall, brimming with character, the sitting room is to your left which has a stone clad fireplace with a log burner within it and double aspect views over the garden.
The large kitchen provides exceptional storage with granite work surfaces and an Aga. The space is ultimately sociable, and perfect for both formal and informal occasions, including a handy utility room and a discreet W.C. Sweeping through to the ‘east wing’ the formal dining room is brilliant for hosting dinner parties and the timber conservatory has a delightful view over the garden.
Outside there is a patio area, perfect for dining al-fresco, with a large lawn surrounded by trees and there are pleasant views over a field and lake. There is off road parking for several vehicles and a large storage shed. The timber-built annexe is currently used as a home office, but could also work as a guest house, benefitting from underfloor heating and a shower room
Back inside and upstairs, four good sized bedrooms rest peacefully with a family bathroom to share. The master suite is all about relaxing in magnificent surroundings with a triple aspect, vaulted ceilings and an en-suite shower room.
"We love our home- intimately nestled in the Surrey countryside yet perfectly formed to welcome guests. We have brought up our children safely, taught them to ride bikes, be at one with and explore the countryside while sharing our lives with the local wildlife. We access the quiet school facilities through membership of The Hawthorns Centre Circle by wandering to the indoor 20m swimming pool, playing a game of tennis and enjoying the holiday clubs. Commuting to London by bike and train makes this an effective, warm retreat from the wonderful culture and buzz of city life that is so easily accessible. Similarly we make use of travelling in the school holidays knowing that the property is safe and secure. We are sad to be selling due to relocation. "
