Property description

Noted as a property of "special interest", Bayford Lodge was once the home and studio of Frank Hampson, the originator of "Dan Dare" of The Eagle Comic from 1954 to 1985. An impressive detached residence, the property provides very spacious and beautifully presented both living and bedroom space, boldly combining art deco and contemporary styles. The ground floor is part open plan and offers a superb flow between rooms, yet with a natural divide between formal and informal living areas, and with the kitchen forming the natural hub. The existing family room is fully fitted with state of the art cinema equipment and sound system, perfect for relaxation with the family. On the first floor a spacious, double aspect landing leads to the four double bedrooms; the master bedroom has a spacious en-suite bathroom (originally another bedroom), and there are two further beautifully fitted spacious bathrooms.

Situation
The property is located in the favoured "College area" of Epsom, leafy residential roads yet close to the bustling town centre with it's comprehensive selection of shops, retaurants and mainline railway station (Victoria and Waterloo approx. 40 minutes).The property also sits within the catchment area for many highly reputable schools, both State and Independent including nearby Epsom College. The famous Epsom Downs Racecourse and the surrounding Green Belt, offer walks and bridleways ideal for the riding and walking enthusiast. The rac Golf & Country Club, Epsom Golf Club and the championship course at Walton Heath are available for the keen golfer.

Outside
Bayford Lodge occupies a bold corner plot and has a delightful, landscaped garden. A gravel driveway with parking for several cars leads to the double garage. The property is entered via an attractive front porch and has pathways around the property. At the front there are borders that are extensively stocked with mature trees, shrubs and planting which gives a degree of seclusion and the rear garden comprises an extensive Indian sandstone and timber terrace, lawns and specimen planted beds.
