This detached character house is situated in a sought-after rural wooded setting, surrounded by spectacular countryside with many excellent walks while being within easy reach of Newdigate’s plentiful amenities, good schools and the larger centres of Dorking, Reigate and Gatwick with its international airport. The good-size plot is enclosed by mature woodland, giving the property a green outlook with the opportunity to enjoy the sights and sounds of the plentiful wildlife that call the area home.
The house was built in 1936 and has been well maintained over the years, with a new central heating system added in 2016. Internally the décor is somewhat dated and would benefit from cosmetic modernisation, though there is also excellent scope to extend the property in line with neighbouring homes (subject to the necessary consents). Many period features remain, including wood floors, original Crittall windows and doors and tiled fireplaces.
Currently offering about 1097 sq ft of accommodation, the layout comprises an entrance hall with cloakroom leading to a 21ft triple aspect sitting/dining room with feature inglenook-style fireplace, kitchen with pantry and outdoor boiler room. On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate w.c.
A generous plot of about 1.12 acres surrounds the home and is well secluded by a variety of mature trees, affording a high degree of privacy. The gardens are mostly south-easterly facing and include a patio, fragrant planting including roses and honeysuckle, ponds and lawned areas. There is a detached garage and a large private driveway with space for a number of vehicles.
Newdigate village enjoys a delightful semi-rural setting surrounded by open countryside and benefits from a number of day-to-day amenities including a preschool and infant school, doctor’s surgery, veterinary practice, The Six Bells and The Surrey Oaks Pubs and a thriving convenience store.

The area has many transport links including the A24 road and train stations at Dorking (6 miles). Dorking station offers fast services to both Victoria and Waterloo, while Deepdene Station gives access to the Reading/Gatwick line. Gatwick Airport is easily reached in about 8 miles.
