About this property

TENURE: Freehold

This delightful detached character cottage is situated on the outskirts of the pretty village of Brockham, which offers peaceful rural living on the doorstep of some of England’s finest countryside. Orchard Cottage is ideally located close to the village amenities with more shopping, schools and leisure facilities including gyms, swimming pool and cinema in nearby Dorking and also delightful shopping facilities in Reigate to the east.

This charming period property, although requiring modernisation, has many period features, as well as being extended to the rear in more recent years to create additional living space. Internally, some of the character features include brick and parquet wood floors, exposed beams and a brick fireplace in one of the sitting rooms. The ground floor offers versatile accommodation, comprising an entrance hall leading to a dining room, kitchen and central foyer, with stairs up to the first floor and a sitting room to the rear. On a raised level there is also a cloakroom with shower and an additional generous family room with wide bay window overlooking the gardens. The workshop can be accessed from both inside and outside. On the first floor there are three good size double bedrooms and a single bedroom, plus a family bathroom.

Situation
Kiln Lane is situated on the eastern fringe of Brockham village, within easy reach of the river Mole and Box Hill for walking and Betchworth Park for golf and numerous bridleways for horseriding. The village of Brockham is truly charming, with renowned public houses including the Royal Oak and the Inn on the Green, as well as a thriving community feel. Despite its semi-rural location, the quiet residential area is well connected to Dorking via the A25/Reigate Road, allowing fast access to the town’s convenience stores and supermarkets including a Waitrose. Dorking station offers fast services to both Victoria and Waterloo, while Deepdene Station gives access to the Reading/Tonbridge line. The A24 provides access to the M25 at Leatherhead with Gatwick and Heathrow International airports being readily accessible. The general area is famous for its outstanding countryside including the North Downs and Box Hill, much of which is under National Trust ownership with opportunities for walking and cycling. Also nearby is Denbies, England’s largest vineyard and good local schools including Ashcombe, St Martin’s Primary, The Priory School and Ashcombe School.

Outside
Approached by a right of way over a long driveway, the house is set within a good sized plot of about 1.4 acres, surrounded by lawn and flowerbeds with mature hedges and trees affording a secluded feel. The garden has excellent landscaping potential and is currently stocked with a variety of established borders including impressive lavender and rose beds. A large area has been used in the past as a paddock. In addition there is a pond, a loggia extending from the sitting room providing a relaxing space for outdoor entertaining, a patio to the front and a detached double garage and timber stable and store both with power connected. In all the plot extends to about 1.4 acres.
