A rarely available five double bedroom detached family home with integral garage and stunning gardens, situated in a private and tucked away position towards the end of a sought after cul de sac, convenient for local schools (including Caterham school), town centre and train station. The property is set in an elevated position with fabulous, wide-ranging views across Harestone Valley and green belt land.
The property was built by the vendor in approx. 1988 on a plot chosen especially for its convenient location and views. Built to a high standard with solid oak joinery, it is well-presented and offers light and airy accommodation of generous proportions extending to 3,368 sq ft. Having been well maintained and looked after by the same owners since new, It now offers potential to modernise and extend to create an absolutely stunning residence for modern family life (subject to usual consents).
The property is entered by an internal porch leading to a welcoming, spacious entrance hall and through glazed doors to the main reception rooms. The ground floor accommodation comprises a generous 23 x 21 ft L-shaped sitting room, a family room/study, dining room, sun-room/conservatory, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, workshop and two cloakrooms. Sliding doors open from the spacious sitting room onto the terrace; in winter the fireplace, with its marble surround, provides a warm focal point. The large kitchen/ breakfast room is a great family space and is fitted with limed oak units providing generous storage; the floor is by Amtico.
On the first floor there are five double bedrooms, all with fitted storage and views across the valley. The main bedroom ensuite has a walk-in shower. A second en-suite shower room is shared between two bedrooms, and there is a family bathroom with a separate shower.
STORAGE: Apart from the built-in storage in the kitchen and bedrooms, there are two very large walk-in eaves cupboards one off the master bedroom and one off another bedroom; these offer excellent potential for development. The large loft is part-boarded and also offers potential for conversion (subject to usual consents)
The house is located in a popular residential cul-de-sac on the outskirts of Caterham, just 0.8 miles from the town centre and within close proximity of a number of good schools, in particular Caterham School (via a local bridle path) and Oakhyrst Grange. There is easy access to the M25 (junction 6) approximately 2.5 miles away via the A22. Located on the edge of the green belt close to many country walks, other leisure activities include several local golf courses, equestrian establishments and more.
TRAIN SERVICES: Caterham Station (0.8 miles) is in Zone 6 and has direct services to London Bridge and Victoria in about 45 minutes.
The house is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in a very private setting; the generous block-paved driveway to the front offers parking for several cars and access to the double garage.
The landscaped rear garden is of a good size and arranged on two levels. It is stocked with a variety of mature flowering shrubs and trees, further enhancing the feeling of seclusion. There is a lovely paved terrace wrapping around the rear of the property that provides a delightful space for entertaining, or from which to relax and enjoy the far-reaching valley views.
