In a convenient situation in one of the area’s most premier locations, enjoying superb views south across the valley towards Woldingham, Fairacres is an early twenty first century house which has recently undergone a programme of refurbishment and transformation. Presented with great style, the already substantial and spacious accommodation has been in part rearranged to create gracious reception areas and a marvellous open plan Living Room with Kitchen, Breakfast and informal Dining areas. In order to ‘invite in’ the spectacular views and fine aspect across the gardens, a series of floor to ceiling sliding doors have been installed across the rear of the house on the ground floor providing superb framing of the views. To complement the unusually high ceilings, internal doors on the ground floor have been replaced with over tall oak and part glazed units and a large window has been installed to the front, all of which ensure the maximum of natural light penetration resulting in a light filled home. There is underfloor heating on both the ground and first levels, Lutron lighting and a Sonos sound system. Bespoke, hand crafted cabinetry in the Study, Master and Guest Bedrooms is by ‘Thoroughly Wood’ who also carried out the renovations in the Kitchen. Here the wall and floor units have been sympathetically rearranged to complement the new layout with quartz work surfaces with appliances including a four oven Mercury by Aga range cooker which also has a hot plate and two gas burners, integrated Neff oven, Mercury grill and warming drawer, Neff microwave and a Fischer Paykel fridge freezer. Steps lead down to the Conservatory which in turn has doors to the indoor Swimming Pool where a series of double doors open out to the gardens whilst large windows capture the views beyond. A wave machine has been installed along with a sauna and changing facilities.
The first floor galleried landing has five bedroom suites leading from it including the fine Master Suite which has a Dressing Room fitted by Thoroughly Wood, who also designed the cabinetry in the En-Suite Bathroom. There are four further double bedrooms on this level all with either en-suite bath or shower rooms. The second floor is given over to a large Media Room with cinema projector and an oak bar together with excellent eaves storage.
Fairacres is located on a premier residential road on the favoured 'Golden Triangle' in Warlingham and within level walking distance of Warlingham Green (approx. 0.5 miles) with its range of local shops, restaurants and pubs. The fast regenerating town of Croydon with its recent investment by Westfield Shopping Centres is less than six miles away. Train links to London can be found at Upper Warlingham – approx. 1.5 miles – with journey times to London Bridge and Victoria from 35 and 39 minutes respectively and access to the national motorway network can be found via the M25 at Junction 6 just over four miles away. The area is renowned for its excellent selection in schooling at primary and secondary levels in both the state and private sectors including Woldingham School for Girls, Caterham School, Whitgift, Croydon High School for Girls and Warlingham Primary School.
Outside, the beautifully landscaped gardens surround the house displaying large, level, well-tended lawns, colourful shrubs and herbaceous borders. A number of water features add character in particular to the front where the water tumbles down over large granite stones to a pool below. Traversing the rear of the house is a large terrace with Indian sandstone paving and glazed balustrading with further paved seating areas elsewhere capturing the sun. Approached via a pair of electric gates, the drive sweeps down to a triple Garage, which has a useful Studio over with plumbing laid on providing the opportunity to create a shower room and thereby ideal for staff accommodation.
