Dating back to 1890, this charming detached home is positioned in the leafy village of Bletchingley, positioned on the top of the North downs with far reaching views. Finished to an exacting standard, this generously proportioned property has been extended and improved to provide an elegant family home.
A spacious entrance hallway lends itself well as a breakfast room and evening snug with its cosy log burner, ideal for those winter evenings. The hall leads to the principal reception rooms with doors from the drawing room opening onto the modern garden room which has been added by the owners in the past few years. The contemporary design has been elegantly added to create a modern twist on the period features of this Victorian house. The dining room is part of the original house, and has a gorgeous open fire and bay window with south facing views. On the ground floor, original wooden flooring flows throughout.
The Louisa Graham kitchen is a modern design and sits to the rear of the house, with a utility room, boot room and spacious pantry. The master bedroom benefits from a double aspect, an en-suite bathroom, gorgeous wooden flooring and balcony to enjoy the scenery. Five further bedrooms, a shower room and a family bathroom are found on the first floor.
The property is set back off a private road, and you approach the house from its west wing. The gravelled driveway leads to the detached double garage, with access to the house from the utility room or front of the property.
The formal gardens and grounds are approximately two acres and are a particular feature of the property comprising of various sun terraces, a croquet lawn area, pond, orchard, gorgeous lawns and woodland, as well as a field of approximately three acres.
"We love sitting in the sun room and enjoying the views even on the wettest of days. You feel like you’re bringing the outside to you. And we will miss sitting by the pond with a glass of wine, listening to the waterfall and the birdsong."
