First time on the market. This delightful country property, offered for sale with no ongoing chain, has views to Coldharbour, and has been created from the former "Peach House" and stables of a nearby Victorian country house and is set in the former walled kitchen garden and enclosed by mature yew hedging. Within the grounds, which extend to about 1.7 Acres, there is a large detached double garage with spacious first floor area above, brick-built detached annex/gardeners bothy and a cart shed, which is understood to date from the Victorian era. The main house is of solid construction with weatherboard finished elevations, complemented by double glazed windows, under a slate roof with conservation roof lights. The accommodation is adaptable and has tiled floors, with underfloor heating, throughout the ground floor with the drawing room featuring a fabulous inglenook style fireplace with log burner. The kitchen has modern units with granite worktops and a separate larder. Continuing on the ground floor there are two bedrooms, a very spacious dining hall and a bathroom. On the first floor there are two additional large bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, oak floors and a further bathroom.
The property is situated about six miles to the south and slightly west of Dorking. The village of Beare Green is about 1 mile to the north with a village school. There are railway stations at Ockley and Holmwood offering train services to London. The A29/A24 gives good access to the M25 being about 11 miles to the north whilst Horsham is about 7 miles to the south, and Gatwick Airport is within about 9 miles. The property lies to the south of the Surrey Hills providing some of the finest walking and riding countryside in the county.
The property is approached across a long gravelled driveway which leads to the detached double garage and to an additional parking area. Immediately to the right of the driveway there is a fenced, highly-productive vegetable garden with raised beds and a detached glasshouse with mature white (Muscat) and red (Black Hamburg) vines. There is an attractive carp pond which lies next to the gardeners bothy – a detached building with shower room on the ground and space saver steps to the first floor room. Within the garden there is also a detached former cart shed. Immediately to the southern side of the main house there a large expanse of stone paved terrace with raised beds, a mature bay tree and palm with wisteria covered arch.
