Ballards Oak is a handsome country residence dating from the mid 1920’s, situated in a sought after location along a private road which adjoins Limpsfield Chart Golf Course. Displaying external elevations of part brick and render with multi pane windows and brick chimney stacks, the house is coming to the market for the first time since the 1960s and requires a measure of updating and re arranging, allowing a marvellous opportunity for a new owner to create a stunning family home in a prestigious location. Internally the accommodation is of generous proportions arranged primarily over two floors together with attic rooms on the second floor. Ceilings are high and windows are large allowing for views over the gardens and beyond. Doors are panelled and there are moulded architraves, coving and parquet floors to the reception hall and family room. Reception areas are gracious with the drawing room having a large bay window and a fireplace, whilst the family and dining rooms both have a dual aspect maximising available light. The kitchen/breakfast room has a good range of wall and base cabinetry with an electric Aga and separate walk in-larder and utility room giving access to the garden. A modern shower room completes the ground floor accommodation.
The first floor is given over to six bedrooms arranged around a galleried landing and served by two bathrooms and a shower room. Included in this is a bedroom with sitting room, an en-suite bathroom, kitchenette and access to a balcony. The second floor provides three attic bedrooms, a bathroom and access to a spacious loft area, which has the potential to convert to additional accommodation subject to any necessary planning regulations.
The property enjoys a tucked away position located on a prestigious, private residential lane on the outskirts of the popular village of Limpsfield which has a shop/post office, public house, golf club, cricket club and a well known tennis club. Nearby are the wide open spaces of Limpsfield Chart and the town of Oxted which has a wide range of shopping facilities, shops, coffee bars and restaurants. Oxted Station has fast train direct services to London Victoria (40 mins) and London Bridge (33 mins). The locality is renowned for its choice in schooling at both primary and secondary levels and includes nearby Hazlewood Prep School, Oxted, Caterham and Woldingham School.
The property is approached over a gravel driveway which leads to a double garage and parking for a number of vehicles. The beautifully maintained and mature gardens are a particular feature of the property offering a high degree of seclusion. Enjoying a level plot of about 1.08 Acres (0.44 Ha) with a southerly aspect there is a paved terrace which offers outside entertaining space. An expanse of formal lawn is bordered by mature hedging and is well stocked with numerous shrubs, flower beds and trees including magnolia, weeping willow, rhododendron and maple, while a stunning mature wisteria climbs across the back of the property. In addition the property has a tennis court and swimming pool screened by hedgerows.
