Large Games Room Which Could Be Converted Into Further Bedrooms
0.8 Of An Acre
Space for more bedrooms is required
The Chimneys was built using traditional and modern building techniques to deliver the best of both aesthetic character, solidness of construction and energy thermo efficiencies (at the time of the building). Located in one of the most sought after and distinguished private roads of South Cheam namely 'The Drive'. The Drive is a mix of ultra-modern architecture, original period estates and neo-Georgian mansions. The entrance to the Chimneys sits within the horse shoe of the road; the building beyond the electronic security gates is barely visible from the road but the sense of theatre delivered by the setting starts to excite the visitor.
As you proceed through the gates and continue down the drive you will notice the 0.8 of an acre plot sides the private golf course from front to back. Arriving at the house the triple garage, the triple fronted house and the views all vie for your immediate attention. As one would expect the entrance to the house is stunning and includes the galleried staircase and landing and marble flooring.
The remainder of the house follows suit in style and elegance and the occupier s vitality will be enhanced by the masses of natural light in all areas of the home. The ground floor has formal rooms and informal rooms which can be used as required to include drawing room positioned to take in the superb views, dining room, study and large kitchen which opens onto the family room. From the kitchen access is gained to a second hall and then the garage, utility room, cloakroom and second staircase to the first floor games room. The first floor is a balanced mix of bedrooms to family and en-suite bathroom/shower rooms with feature areas like the gallery landing. Bay windows deliver extra character and help soften the edges of belief that this is a relatively new build.
The rear garden allows for pure escapism as you could really be anywhere; tall mature trees screen and divide Koi ponds and differing plateaus and decked landscaping. The experience reminded me of Wisley and the owner informs me his idea was to create a controlled yet natural landscape which shows no evidence of being contrived.
The local area is known for its affluence and highly regarded schooling. Commuting into London via train services, down the A3 and around the M25 are all easily accessible. Occupiers will enjoy the many sports and club facilities locally and the ability to shop locally in Cheam or Banstead high street delivers a quaint experience whilst further afield like Kingston and Epsom gives a more dynamic shopping option.
