Property description

Location Set on a quiet, private residential road within a short walk of the pretty town of Oxted. This commuter town is surrounded by National Trust land, and boasts the ever popular Master Park offering year round events. Oxted and Hurst Green stations (both within walking distance) provide mainline services to East Croydon and central London (London Bridge and Victoria - 30-40 minutes). The town includes a Leisure Complex with swimming pool, Independent boutique Cinema and a range of shops including a Morrisons and a Waitrose. Junction 6 of the M25 is approximately 3 miles distant. There are a number of good local state and independent schools for all ages, some within walking distance. These include Limpsfield and Downs Way Infant Schools, St Mary's Junior School and Oxted Secondary School in the state sector and Hazelwood School in the independent sector.

Description Built in the 1980's, this family home is located on a private drive servicing just three properties. The block paved driveway provides plenty of space for a family with several cars. The front door leads to the spacious hallway giving access to the reception rooms and through to the garage. Beneath the stairs is a useful built in book case and leads on to a handy coat cupboard. The very attractive and well thought out kitchen has a range of wall and base units, shelving and drawers with a granite work surface over, interrupted only by a one and half bowl sink and an induction hob. The kitchen also boasts under floor heating, a double oven, integrated dishwasher, microwave and extractor. A large American style fridge freezer is set perfectly at the end of the worktop. Beyond the sink is a useful breakfast bar, separating the kitchen from the extension which provides the 'hub' of the home in the shape of an informal dining area. With a vaulted ceiling incorporating Velux windows, as well as almost floor to roof windows, this part of the house feels as though the outside has nestled its way in. Solid wood flooring enhances that feeling, so too does the ceiling fan and double patio doors leading to the terrace and garden. A well designed utility room offers space for a washing machine and tumble dryer along with a range of cupboards, sink with drainer and rear door to the garden and Hot Tub terrace. The spacious dual aspect dining room with double doors to the terrace is very conveniently placed between the kitchen and living room. The laminate flooring leads through an opening to the triple aspect living room (also accessed through double doors from the hallway). A wonderfully large space with views to nearly all areas of the garden and accessed through patio doors. A contemporary gas fire is set within the wall providing warmth and comfort, behind which is a chimney breast offering the option for an open fireplace. Within this spacious area is a built in TV unit with drawers and storage in addition to a large built in shelving unit. Back out on to the hallway, another door leads to the study with views to the front and plenty of space for office furniture. A recently refurbished cloakroom with Georgian style wash hand basin, w.C. And heated towel rail completes the downstairs accommodation.
The stairs lead to a wide and airy landing with loft access benefiting from part boarding, ladder and light. One of the largest rooms upstairs is located above the garage with views to both sides of the house and ample eaves storage, currently being used as a 'den' but would make an excellent bedroom. The four remaining rooms offer varying degrees of size from the single room, maximising the space with cleverly designed built in furniture (including a cabin bed with storage beneath, dressing table and wardrobe), to the sizeable master suite with built in wardrobes, drawers and dressing table. The ensuite, newly refurbished, has a walk in shower with both rain and waterfall shower features, a deep Villeroy & Boch bath, wash hand basin in vanity unit, W.C. And heated towel rail. With mood lighting, this feels like a very luxurious improvement to the house. The family bathroom, having had the same make-over as the ensuite, offers another large walk in shower with feature shower heads, w.C., wash hand basin and heated towel rail as well as mirrored bathroom cabinets. Most of the rooms upstairs have views to the gardens and generous storage solutions, in addition to a large walk-in airing cupboard with newly fitted hot water tank.

Outside With approximately half an acre, this private, quiet and peaceful garden wraps round most of the house ensuring sun and light at any time of the day. The drive has space for several parked vehicles as well as a double garage with seperate electrically operated doors. Mostly laid to lawn and level, the garden boasts an old and beautiful Mulberry tree, mature Wisteria and a selection of other plants and shrubs around the border. The plot is almost fully fenced with access to the side via a wooden gate. Several terrace areas are dotted around maximising the chances for all day sun. On the westerly facing terrace there is a fairly new Hot Tub which the current owners are happy to leave. There is also a shed, very handy for the garden tools.

Best bits... This property is a highly desirable family home with lots of space in a prime location, it will prove to be very popular.
