A remarkable Freehold opportunity to purchase a 1924 built home in breathtaking grounds of 0.533 Acre with both development and refurbishment potential - to be sold for the first time since built.

4 Receptions - 4 Bedrooms - 2 Bath/Shower Rooms - Vast Unconverted Attic - Over 34m Plot Width at Building Line - Mature and Private South-West Facing Grounds - Both Refurbishment and Development Potential - Private Road Location - 0.7 mile Walk to Village & Station - Heathrow & Gatwick Airports 17 & 21 miles distant respectively - No Onward Chain

We are delighted to offer for sale this extraordinary Freehold opportunity, with a home which is to be sold for the first time since built in 1924! Being the first private house in Norrels Drive following the tenure of the Earl of Lovelace, Tanaghmore is a substantial family home providing a wonderful 'blank canvas' of opportunities not only for refurbishment, but also significant further development of the plot.

With fabulously mature South-West facing grounds which afford great privacy and at one time included a grass tennis court, the main house sits to one side of the plot which enjoys over 34m of width at the building line - which is more than double the width of other plots in the immediate vicinity. Extending to 0.533 Acre in total, there therefore holds the incredible scope for the next owner to design a scheme of their own making.

The house itself is a graceful family home, typical of its original era of build, including 4 receptions, 4 bedrooms, 2 bath/shower rooms and spacious reception hall and landing; offering scope to modernise and extend to ones heart's content, which in our opinion will also take advantage of the vast 40' unconverted attic space.

With the removal of the single storey extension to the Southern flank of the house, this will also provide ample width for the addition of a second substantial dwelling within the curtilage, subject to the usual consents being acquired. Purchasers may be interested to know that the original Title made provision for a maximum of 3 dwellings and 3 accesses from Norrels Drive, underscoring the full potential of this unique Freehold opportunity. That said, however, this home will also appeal to those wishing to own one of the more significant family homes in the village centre, maximising the mature setting to its full and creating a forever home in this beautiful Private Road setting.

Norrels Drive very much enjoys a semi-rural signature of its own, and yet is just a 0.7 mile walk to Horsley Station (Waterloo 43 mins) and shops, with direct access to protected woodland at the end of the lane and only a few hundred paces to the fabulous open spaces of Effingham Common. In the locality there is a superb choice of both State and Private schooling, including The Raleigh, Howard of Effingham, Glenesk, Cranmore and St Teresas to name just a few, along with recreational amenities including the Private Tennis and Cricket clubs just 200 yards distant, a choice of Golf clubs, and the beautiful Surrey Hills just a few minutes away.

For the purchaser who seeks the ultimate combination of location, plot and potential, this is definitely one not to miss. Viewing Strictly by Appointment.
