Property description

A very interesting contemporary four bedroom family home with the added advantage of two separate apartments that could be rented out or used as an annex, large gardens including a paddock with views towards Box Hill bordering the River Mole and all within walking distance of Dorking town centre and mainline train station.

This wonderful family home has been improved and upgraded in recent years to create a stunning contemporary living, with features and fixtures that exude quality throughout. Offering delightfully spacious and adaptable accommodation, beginning with a stylish entrance hall leading to the key reception areas. The real centrepiece of the house is the stunning kitchen/breakfast room with a modern design that has been equipped with a range of bespoke kitchen furniture and a comprehensive array of kitchen appliances. Finished off with a roof lantern and double doors allowing plenty of light to flood in and give access directly onto the courtyard garden. The family/sitting room is a bright and spacious room currently laid out as an impressive dining room. Just off a further hallway are three sizeable double bedrooms and a three piece modern bathroom suite. In addition to all of the downstairs accommodation, there is a useful utility room with shower, sink and WC.

Upstairs the style and flexibility of this home is very apparent; the current owners have, over the years, had many different layouts with the current design split into two large principle areas. The upstairs sitting room is a beautifully proportioned room with an impressive open fireplace along with a wood floor. The balcony is accessed through double doors from the sitting room and master bedroom. To the rear is a well-proportioned triple aspect master bedroom with an en-suite shower room and a dressing room.

Outside
There is also the huge benefit of a detached annex adjacent to the house which has been separated into two apartments. These are ideal for a dependent relative, teenagers or perhaps a home office. These apartments have their own entrances and have in recent years been updated. The top floor apartment is a good size studio with a separate shower room and the ground floor offers one bedroom, open plan living space with kitchen and separate bathroom. These apartments are currently rented out privately.

The gated grounds are divided into many areas which really do have to be viewed to be fully appreciated. In all, the grounds extend to just over 2.66 acre including the paddock. The property and grounds are partly enclosed by a combination of fence and brick walls and access is via two double gates. The front is a gravelled driveway with ample parking and turning for several vehicles.

Directly behind the main house is a private courtyard garden which is an ideal area for al fresco dining and also benefits from a number of storage alcoves. The main part of the garden is probably the most beautifully tranquil, with the ‘Pippbrook’ stream winding through the grassy banks, all shielded by an array of shrubs and mature trees. The current owners have, over the last 23 years, enjoyed many parties and celebrations as well as relaxing in this particular area of woodland.

Walking through the formal gardens you come upon the equestrian part of the grounds with a stable and private paddock and the fantastic views of Box Hill and the River Mole.

Location
Dorking town offers a comprehensive range of shopping, social, recreational and educational amenities with facilities for the commuter from one of three railway stations. Dorking railway station (Victoria and Waterloo in approx 50 minutes) being within close proximity along with Dorking Deepdene (Gatwick to Reading line). The M25 is accessed seven miles north equidistant via the A24 to Leatherhead Junction 9 or the A25 to Reigate Junction 8. The general area is famous for its outstanding countryside including Ranmore and Box Hill (National Trust) and is ideal for the walking, cycling and riding enthusiast and Denbies, England’s largest vineyard, where they run daily tours.

Please note, On the ground floor remedial works to the main house were carried out in 2014 due to surface flooding – this work was covered under the owners buildings insurance. Full details can be shared upon request.
