Cranwood was bought by the current owners in the early 1960's from the first owner. Constructed in the 1950's, the house has been extended and altered a number of times over the years to create a lovely 'free flowing’ home specifically designed to provide some great entertainment areas. In particular, there is a generous garden room with bar at the rear of the property which opens out onto the lawns and patios, ideal for a summer party. The double aspect, open plan dining room/drawing room is another spacious room and there is a separate home office and study with library area at the front.
The double aspect master suite is on the first floor along with another three bedrooms and family bathroom and it is worth noting that there is a fifth bedroom with en-suite on the ground floor which makes an excellent guest suite.
It is also worth noting that whilst the original integral garage still exists there is also another double garage block with sauna, shower and garden store which is connected to the house via a long covered walkway.
There is potential to utilise the borehole on the property for the provision of water for garden use.
At the front, the double driveway provides ample parking for most family situations.
As you can see from the photographs it would be fair to say that the property would benefit from some refurbishment/redesigning, but with a plot of approximately 0.9 acres and a very wide frontage of about 178 feet a clever architect/builder could adapt and extend the existing framework to create a wonderful contemporary family home. Equally of course, an application could be made for a stunning replacement home which could be one of the best on the estate.
The sought after Burwood Park estate with its gated entrances and private residential roads is a wonderfully quiet and convenient area on the fringes of Walton on Thames. The town centre provides an excellent range of bars, banks, restaurants and shops, including the new 'Heart' indoor shopping centre. The railway station, which is within 1 miles provides a fast service into London Waterloo, whilst the A3, which is approximately 3 miles away provides access to major airports, the M25, London and the South. Excellent state and private schools also include St Georges College and ACS are also within easy reach.
