VIEWINGS FROM 8TH MARCH. An excellent opportunity to purchase this much improved four-bedroom, two bathroom, detached family house with stunning drawing room, bespoke handcrafted kitchen/dining room, family room and utility/cloakroom, complemented by ample parking, a good size garden and a purpose-built home office.
Applegate House is accessed via a five-bar gate that opens onto a large gravel driveway enclosed to the front by high conifer hedging, which provides parking for numerous vehicles. A covered porch shelters the front door which opens into the entrance hall with light oak wood floors and understairs storage space. Stairs lead to the first floor, a door straight ahead opens into the kitchen/dining room and part-glazed double doors lead into the drawing room. This is a fabulous double aspect room, measuring 22ft by 21ft with light oak wood flooring, two bay windows to the front aspect and double doors out onto the garden. There is a wall to wall run of bespoke fitted cupboards and shelving either side of a limestone fireplace with Stovax wood burning stove, and further matching bespoke cupboards and shelving on the opposite wall.
A door from the drawing room leads through to the stunning kitchen/dining room which features a bespoke Indigo hand-crafted kitchen where a huge Carrara topped island takes centre stage. There is seating for two at one end of the island and an incredible amount of storage provided by cupboards and drawers on both sides. A comprehensive run of worksurfaces has further cupboards under and a double sink features a Perrin and Rowe mixer tap and pot washer. There is an integrated dishwasher, washing machine and Samsung fridge/freezer with ice maker as well as a Smeg range with tiled splashback and remote-controlled extractor above.
Opposite the island unit is a fantastic bespoke pantry cupboard with shelving, pull out drawers and Carrara topped prep space. Double doors open onto the rear garden and there is ample space for a sizeable dining table.
Off the kitchen/dining room to the front of the house is a family room/TV room, whilst to the back of the house a door leads through a lobby (with further door to the garden) to a utility room/cloakroom with space for tumble dryer and additional fridge space.
On the first floor there is a generous, light filled landing with two built-in storage cupboards and access to the loft space. Doors lead off to four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom features built-in wardrobes and overlooks the rear garden with views to the Surrey Hills beyond. The en suite features both a bath and separate shower which is complemented by a recently fitted family bathroom with underfloor heating and a bath with shower over.
Gated side access leads from the front of the property to the back garden, which is a good size being mainly laid to lawn, with wrap around patio adjoining the house which is accessible from both the drawing room and the kitchen/dining room. The garden is enclosed and well screened by mature hedges, trees and shrubs with a shed at the bottom of the garden and a superb purpose-built home office/garden studio which is insulated and heated and has wood floors, power and lighting and double-glazed bi-fold doors.
Cranleigh village is easily reached and provides an exceptional range of individual shops and boutiques, an M&S food hall and Sainsbury’s together with several restaurants in addition to the leisure centre and doctors’ surgery. There are several highly regarded schools in the area in both the state and private sectors. For a wider range of facilities Guildford is approximately 7 miles away and Horsham is 15 miles. Surrounding the area are miles of open countryside with the Surrey Hills being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
