Northbourne is one of the most recognizable properties within the pretty village of Chobham, with its familiar Georgian architecture and a house that is Grade 11 Listed, dating from the early 19th Century. The property has distinctive red brick elevations relieved by a hipped slate roof with later additions including the angled bay windows and quadrant cuved bays added in the latter part of that century. The subsequent listing occured in 1984 (listing number 1377517).
The property is very much a 'landmark' house within the village and set in 0.4 acre of enclosed garden with a heated swimming pool. Notable features are the two traditional and most attractive reception rooms, both with double aspect and fireplaces, the modern kitchen and adjoining dining room, the latter being the former kitchen with the old range being evident, the study and the lower ground cellar, all of which provide a most ambient setting. To the first floor are a principal bedroom with ensuite bathroom and 4 further bedrooms with a family bathroom as well as a hobbies room or occassional child's bedroom.
We thoroughly recommend this prominent, Georgian village house, for its ambience, location and private garden.
Situated in the heart of the pretty village of Chobham, with its Grade 1 Listed village church and Medieval tower. There are a good selection of local facilities and convenience stores, restaurants and pubs including the Raymond Blanc brasserie, The Sun Inn. More extensive shopping centres can be found in Guildford and Woking which are both about 9.6 and 5 miles distant respectively.
The village also has an excellent rugby club with a large and flourishing junior section and a thriving tennis club. The area also offers good leisure facilities including some of the finest golf clubs in the world, such as Wentworth, Sunningdale and Queenswood, horse racing at Ascot and Windsor and polo at Ascot and the Guards Club. Chobham Common offers 1,400 acres of national nature reserve and the largest in the south east of England, ideal for walking and riding pursuits.
Commuter road and rail links are excellent with Woking mainline station about 5 miles away with frequent direct trains to Waterloo (approx 27 mins) Junction 3 of the M3 is 4 miles away, Junc. 11 of the M25 7 miles, Terminal 5 at Heathrow 15 miles and central London 32 miles.
The gardens very much compliment the house and offer a surprising area for a village property. They are mainly laid to lawn with formal hedging and mature trees, providing different areas to walk through, along with some flower borders and a generous paved terrace adjoining the rear of the property, which provides a courtyard area leading into a variety of useful brick and timber outbuildings and storage areas. Alongside one boundary is the heated swimming pool and filter house, which is a gated for safety.
Overall, the gardens provide a private setting for the house and extend to 0.4 acre.
