Situated on a sought after private road within easy reach of Dorking town centre is this most attractive detached house which has been extensively improved and extended to create a generously proportioned family home. The current owner has added a conservatory and extension, converting the garage into an additional and spacious reception room and opening up the existing living areas which are now open plan and full of natural light. The property is entered via a modern glazed porch leading to a central hallway from which the ground floor accommodation can be accessed. The versatile layout comprises a family/music room, a study, a 24ft conservatory with wood-burning stove and a spacious sitting and dining area. The kitchen has been extensively modernised with a variety of gloss fitted units complemented by granite work surfaces, and includes a number of integrated appliances, with additional space available in the adjacent utility room.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms accessed from a central galleried landing, plus a family bathroom. The master bedroom enjoys excellent natural light and benefits from a stunning en suite bathroom with both a freestanding bath and glass walk-in shower.
Roman Road is a sought-after private road to the south of Dorking town centre, with some of Surrey’s finest and most unspoilt countryside nearby. 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 approached by a smart brick-paved driveway providing off-street parking, with a small area of lawn edged by a low brick wall, planted with a maturing acer. The extensive westerly facing rear garden can be accessed via a side gate or alternatively via the conservatory or living room. The garden is laid to lawn and enjoys a good degree of privacy from the rear, with high trees, established hedging and wooden panel fencing affording a feeling of seclusion. To one side there is a large raised stone-paved patio with space for dining alfresco, and a wide terrace spanning the back of the house.
