A handsome detached Edwardian family home partially clad in wisteria and built of brick with white rendered and exposed timber elevations, beneath a pitched tiled roof. The house stands
along a highly regarded residential tree-lined road ideally situated for Oxted town centre and railway station. The well-proportioned and substantial accommodation is arranged over two floors,
extending to approximately 4,471 square feet (including garage) and retains a wealth of period features including fireplaces in the main hall and each reception room, cast iron radiators, high ceilings, parquet flooring and bay windows.
From the porch, with Indian sandstone floor, a door opens into the main reception hall which connects to a further reception hall and
the principal reception rooms, all of which have parquet flooring. Stairs rise to the mezzanine level study and continue to the first floor galleried landing. The large “Pippy Oak” bespoke kitchen/
breakfast room is a particular feature of the property, by Roundel Design of Cranbrook, with Aga, central island unit, modern appliances and contrasting granite work surfaces. Double doors
open out to the pool area. From the kitchen a door opens into the former servant quarters with secondary staircase to the first floor. There is a utility room and cloak/steam shower room together with a connecting passage linking the house and garage. A large conservatory leads from the sitting room and is sited between the pool area and the garden. It benefits from an auto ventilation system. A cloakroom completes the ground floor layout.
On the first floor the double aspect master suite enjoys lovely views, whilst there are four further bedrooms and a family bathroom with original tiles, cast iron bath and a separate WC. To the far end of the house, above the double garage, is a family room/games room with glazing to either side maximising available light.
