Crown House is a handsome Grade II listed Georgian property, located in the heart of Chipstead village. The double fronted house was originally built in 1763, with later additions, and has living accommodation arranged over three levels in addition to cellar. The house offers well proportioned rooms with high ceilings and retains much character in many of the rooms. The internal accommodation extends to over 3,600 square feet including the cellar. The property offers some scope for modernisation.

Stairs lead up from the left to a half landing where there is a room currently used as home office and a separate WC. Glazed French doors lead from the hallway to a dual aspect sitting room which boasts an inglenook fireplace, three windows and a built in bookcase. From here you can access the breakfast room and kitchen, which are also reached from the main hallway.
