With a very convenient location close to the plentiful amenities of Dorking’s charming High Street is this attractive late Victorian semi detached property which has been extensively modernised to a very high standard by the current owner, while preserving many of the sought-after character features. Contemporary additions include extensive fitted storage such as units and shelving, bespoke shutters and modern bathrooms, which contrast brilliantly with period features such as wood floors, original fireplaces, picture rails and a handsome spindle staircase with wooden bannister. The updated interiors are decorated in a soothing palette of neutral tones, complemented by high ceilings which enhance the excellent natural light. The interior space is arranged over three floors and offers versatile family accommodation. On the ground floor an open-plan reception space is separated into a living room with bay window and a separate dining room. Adjacent to this is a stylish kitchen fitted with wood wall and base units offering a variety of storage options. Additional features include quartz worktops, space for a range cooker, a breakfast bar and double doors opening to the garden. The four bedrooms are arranged over the first and second floors, with the top floor bedroom currently used as a study. This room has lovely views over the town and surrounding Surrey Hills and benefits from ample eaves storage. The first-floor bedrooms comprise a master bedroom with en suite shower room, a guest bedroom overlooking the garden and a third single bedroom. Of particular note is the family bathroom which is of excellent proportions and includes both an integrated bath and shower.
The property enjoys a most sought-after location right in the centre of Dorking, in an extremely convenient location within close walking distance of all the town centre has to offer including excellent shopping, coffee shops and restaurants. The Meadowbank Park is set across the road with its large lake and area of greensward. 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.
The property is accessed via a delightful front garden stocked with a variety of shrubs with a low wall and pedestrian gate where there is on-street parking (permit required). The south-west facing rear garden is equally well presented and is arranged over two levels: a good-size paved patio accessed from the kitchen with built-in seating, and steps leading to a lawn laid to astroturf. A variety of plants provide a feeling of seclusion, in addition to a number of already established trees. Side access to the rear garden is also possible via a wooden gate to Rothes Road.
