A rare opportunity to purchase this detached iconic home on the outskirts of Dorking opposite Denbies Vineyard. This unique Grade II listed property is part Elizabethan with Georgian additions and has a rich and colourful history including being a public house. This unique home has adaptable accommodation having been been used by two families but would be an ideal family home. This is really a house with two very distinctive characters. The Georgian side of the house has a lovely light sitting room with Adams style open fireplace, family room, kitchen with doors to the outside and downstairs to a cellar with two rooms, the larger of which has been used as a good sized dining room by the current owners, the smaller used for storage. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, cloakroom and family bathroom. The Elizabethan part of the home has a magnificent hall style drawing room and family room with a wealth of period features including oak beams, wood panelling and log burning stove. There is a kitchen/breakfast room, bathroom and two bedrooms.
The property is situated on the outskirts of Dorking opposite the famous Denbies vineyard. Dorking mainline station is a short distance away offering services to Waterloo and Victoria. Much of the surrounding countryside is owned by The National Trust and there are many lovely walks, including the North Downs Way closeby. Dorking and Leatherhead town centres, with their excellent shopping and recreational facilities, are within easy reach of the A24. Both the Burford Bridge Hotel and the Stepping Stones public house are within walking distance of the property as is Boxhill, famous for its lovely walks and cycling (since its inclusion in the Olympics).
The well enclosed gardens are about half an acre and are mainly laid to lawns with numerous beds and borders and a brick paved courtyard with a parterre. There is a pretty lily pond and arbour as well as numerous shrubs and specimen trees. The gardens are accessed from both sides of the property giving vehiclar access and ample parking with garage and car port.
