A most attractive cottage style property understood to have been built in the 1920’s which has been sympathetically extended and now provides ideal family accommodation arranged over three floors. It retains much charm with period features still retained such as wooden floors and a fireplace but has been modernised with the addition of a contemporary shower-room and kitchen with replacement large sash windows providing good natural light. The property provides versatile accommodation with a study/family room to the front and comfortable sitting room with wooden floors and feature fireplace with log burner to supplement the heating on chilly evenings. The addition of a stunning conservatory style dining room has a lovely view down the garden and the country style kitchen is fitted with slate tiles, a range of wooden units and incorporates a breakfast bar, stable door and butler sink well placed to overlook the garden.
On the first floor the landing has wooden floorboards leading to two bedrooms which includes the master bedroom with pretty cast iron fireplace and built-in storage. With both a spacious bathroom and a stylish shower-room with basin storage unit on this floor, upstairs are two charming bedrooms with eaves storage and garden views.

It offers the opportunity of country village living within easy commuting distance of London. Abinger Hammer is nearby and offers a popular farm shop and general store. The surrounding countryside has miles of footpaths and bridleways through some of Surrey's most beautiful scenery.

Adjacent to the house is a paved patio ideal for entertaining in the summer months and benefitting from a favourable southerly aspect.
