EQUESTRIAN - At the far end of a no-through lane, surrounded by rolling Surrey down-land and with far reaching views, presenting a marvellous opportunity to acquire a neatly presented country house, set within in excess of twenty acres of well-maintained gardens, paddocks and equestrian facilities, yet within the M25. Wingfield Farm occupies an exceptional position within a mile of the sought-after village of Walton-on-the-Hill, yet enjoys access for riding and walking amidst some beautiful countryside and the Epsom Downs. Constructed in the 1980s with later additions, the house has been refurbished by the present owners as a warm and welcoming family home, taking full advantage of its position. Accommodation is laid out over three floors and features three reception rooms, a contemporary style kitchen/breakfast room along with four bedrooms on the first floor – one en-suite - and a fifth bedroom with studio/games/family room on the second. With a rear, southerly aspect and large, double glazed picture windows, an abundance of natural light floods in throughout the house.
Supplementing the main house is a staff/guest flat which is accessed via a staircase to the side of the garaging and provides a sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and a double bedroom. It is possible to connect this to the first floor of the main house if so required.
This property is featured by our Equestrian department.
This wonderful location is just over a mile from the charming village of Walton on the Hill, whilst Ebbisham Lane itself leads directly onto Walton/Epsom Downs with additional hacking accessible on Walton and Headley Heaths. Neighbouring the property is the newly designated Centennial Wood which is being created by the Woodland Trust and is a marvellously evocative area with footpaths and specially commissioned carved benches for taking in the views. The village has a selection of local shops, public houses, restaurants and a coffee shop. Reigate, Epsom and Dorking are all within easy reach and all provide excellent shopping, banking and leisure facilities. Sporting venues abound with golf nearby at Walton Heath, Surrey Downs and Kingswood, racing at Epsom along with excellent riding and walking.
The area has an excellent choice of schooling in both the state and private sectors including Epsom College, City of London Freemans, Chinthurst, Aberdour, Walton on the Hill Primary and Bramley.
Junction 8 of the M25 is approximately 5 miles distant giving access to the national motorway network, Gatwick and Heathrow airports. London termini by rail from Tadworth Station takes approximately 51 minutes.
Set well back, the house is approached via a pair of tall electric gates opening onto a gravelled drive, which continues to a parking and turning area in front of the house and the garaging. The stable yard has its own dedicated entrance. Gardens to the front and rear have an open aspect, planted with mature hedging, well-tended lawns and terracing, as well as productive apple trees.
Equestrian facilities are comprehensively arranged to provide in total 12 loose boxes and pony stables, some with Lodden partitions, along with a steel framed barn. The boxes are block and brick built, and all have rubber matting fitted. Tack and rug rooms have solid doors, smoke alarms and movement detectors, whilst hot water is also laid on. A courtyard encloses 7 stables, a feed room and rug room. A second block incorporates 2 large, secure, tack rooms and two large foaling stables. Two adjacent brick built barns are used as a workshop and 3 further stables (one currently incorporating a washdown area and solarium), but offer potential for alternative uses. The ménage was installed by Charles Britton and at 45m x 25m is rubber on sand and has training mirrors. A mobile home requires some updating but could provide extra staff accommodation. The paddocks are delightful free draini
