On approaching the property you could be fooled into thinking it is just a modest home, but nothing could be further from the truth. Behind the front entrance door is a hidden gem of a house where there is a "wow" factor literally around every corner. The accommodation, which extends to just under 4,000 square feet, is incredibly generous with large amounts of glazing bringing in huge amounts of natural light and providing breath taking views of the lovely garden and North Downs in the distance. If desired, its adaptable layout would certainly allow for the creation of two separate living spaces, ideal if you are a family with more than one generation living together. It also benefits from being close to good local amenities, educational establishments and transport systems. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate all that this unique property has to offer.
The front door opens into a welcoming entrance hall where there is a large walk-in cloaks cupboard and stairs that give access to the rest of the ground floor and lower ground floor. Door to integral garage.
This useful space can be accessed from the hall or via the electrically operated door to the front of the garage. The boiler and hot water cylinder are housed in this area.
This bright, elegant, spacious sitting room, which is open to the kitchen at one end, really has the "wow" factor. The large glazed windows and patio doors across the back of this room bring the outside in and give amazing vistas over the garden and countryside beyond. A wood burner gives a cosy focal point in the colder months. Bespoke oak and glass staircase to first floor.

A further independently operated electric gate gives access to the property next door.
Garden gates either side of the house lead through to the beautiful gently sloping garden beyond, which was landscaped by the award winning Chelsea Flower designer Christopher Edgar, and is a haven for children, pets, gardeners and nature lovers alike. An elevated terrace at the back of the house gives far reaching views towards the North Downs and is the perfect spot for summer relaxation and al fresco dining. There is also a wonderful rose garden, the centre piece of which is a stunning magnolia tree. Outbuildings include a greenhouse cum potting shed and store.
