Designed and constructed in 2014 by the present owners for their own occupation, Hayes is a wonderfully handsome, detached house of quality. Classic elevations reflecting the early Victorian period are of JUB render with a leaded, canopied entrance and wooden framed, double glazed sash windows, under a pitched, slate roof, whilst internally the specification is very high, successfully combining twenty first century technologies with natural materials. Catering for contemporary tastes as well as energy saving concerns, features include solar panels, a Control 4 Home Automation system, heat recovery system, programmable and low level lighting, an integrated sound system and under floor heating throughout. All tiles and sanitary ware in the house are by Fired Earth and there are oak floors through the whole house apart from bath/shower rooms and the kitchen/living area, which has Belgian blue limestone flooring. The dual aspect family living space is arranged to provide a light filled, open plan layout. The fabulous kitchen is sophisticatedly styled, being comprehensively fitted with hand painted wall and floor cabinets by Martin Moore with Quartzite granite work surfaces and splash backs, a Lacanche range cooker, integrated appliances by Gaggenau, Neff, Miele and a Quooker hot water tap. The dining area is top lit by light wells and has three pairs of French doors leading out to the terracing, whilst the family sitting space has a wood burning stove and fully fitted shelving and cupboards. Elsewhere on the ground floor is a sitting room, which also has a wood burning stove and exposed brick walls, a playroom and a utility/boot room. Bedrooms are laid out over the upper levels, of which the master suite has a superb en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower area, a fully fitted dressing room and a Juliet balcony. There are two further bedrooms on the first floor, together with a family bathroom and the laundry room, whilst the second floor is given over to two further bedrooms - one of which has an en-suite bathroom – eaves storage and a separate WC.
The property is located in an attractive setting on an exclusive private road, considered to be one of the most sought after in the locality. With an active community, Woldingham continues to be a highly prized location and enjoys various local sports clubs including tennis and cricket and a well-stocked village shop with Post Office. There are two golf clubs nearby – North Downs and The Woldingham – along with many rambling walks crisscrossing the North Downs. The choice in schooling is superb and include local schools such as Woodlea Junior School and Woldingham School for girls, as well as being well placed for schools in Oxted – Oxted County School and Hazlewood Preparatory School – Caterham School and the Croydon schools – Whitgift, Croydon High School for Girls and Trinity. Oxted town centre is approximately four miles away and has an excellent range of supermarkets, boutiques, antique shops along with cafes and restaurants, an Everyman cinema and a leisure centre.
The house is approached via a pair of electric gates, opening on to a resin bonded drive and parking area. A detached double garage has an external staircase up to a guest/staff studio which enjoys the benefit of an en-suite shower room. Secluded gardens to front and rear have been landscaped to provide year round colour and have an irrigation system. Herbaceous borders are planted with a variety of perennials, lavenders and spring flowering bulbs, mixed hedging is mature and there are two areas of level lawn. A wide, tiled terrace traverses the rear of the property, which has one section covered by a glazed loggia and is ideal for outdoor entertaining.
