A fantastic opportunity to acquire this superb four/five bedroom detached family home of some 2400 sq ft with stunning 400 ft rear garden which adjoins the River Tillingbourne with a backdrop of uninterrupted views to The Chantries.
A wide, central recessed entrance porch, with quarry tiled step, leads to the front door which opens into a generous entrance hall with original wood floors, wide stairs to the first floor, understairs cupboards and doors to the principal rooms. The sitting room runs front to back with a bay window to the front aspect, double doors to the rear garden and a living flame coal effect fire. Off the sitting room is a good size study/bedroom five, which again benefits from double doors onto the rear garden.
On the other side of the entrance hall, to the front of the property, is an 18ft by 11ft double aspect family room with built-in low-level cupboards. Doors from the hallway and family room lead into the fabulous kitchen/dining room which features a bespoke handcrafted kitchen by Seymours with an expansive range of shaker style base and eye level units, as well as a central island with granite worktops. There is a fitted Britannia six burner gas range with double oven and pan drawer, extractor fan above, fridge/freezer and integrated dishwasher with a double Belfast sink. There are tiled floors, windows and doors onto the garden and space for a dining table. Off the kitchen is a cloakroom and a utility room with sink, appliance space and a door that leads out to the side of the property.
On the first floor the landing has an airing cupboard and access to a boarded loft space. Doors from the landing lead to four double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The master bedroom is double aspect with an en suite shower room with twin basins. The family bathroom features a freestanding bath with shower above and the en suite, family bathroom and bedroom three all boast fabulous views down the garden to The Chantries beyond.
To the front of the property a block paved driveway provides ample off-street parking and leads to a garage, and a gated side access leads round to the back garden. The garden is a real feature of the property being approximately 400ft long, running down to the River Tillingbourne and enjoying uninterrupted views across farmland beyond up to The Chantries. The top half of the garden is laid to lawn with a large patio area adjoining the house and is well stocked with mature trees and shrubs, whilst the bottom half is designated agricultural land and is left natural and provides a wonderful spot to sit alongside the river, immersed in nature whilst taking in the views.
