The White House is an attractive family house, believed to date from the 1920's, which occupies the most extraordinary location. It is situated in an elevated position with unrivalled far reaching views. The accommodation on both ground and first floor has been designed to maximise the stunning outlook which stretches in an arc along the North Downs, sweeping East towards the Surrey/Kent border and around to the South East and South, with remarkable views across the Surrey/Sussex countryside with the South Downs visible on a clear day.
The accommodation inside is bright and spacious with some notable features including an open fireplace in the sitting room, and a dining room, again with a unique open fire surround and mantle and bi-folding doors that lead directly out to a substantial sun terrace. There is an excellent kitchen/breakfast room.
Upstairs, the majority of rooms enjoy the exceptional open views and the main bedroom suite also has a roomy, luxuriously fitted bathroom and separate dressing area. There are 5 bedrooms all together.
To the front, a private drive provides parking for several cars in front of the garage.
The gardens and grounds are an outstanding feature with an extensive terrace spanning the rear elevation of the house with access form all the main ground floor rooms. A lower terrace is a lovely sheltered outdoor dining area, again with superb views. There is a detached outbuilding which is currently used as a games room, but could certainly be adapted to a variety of other purposes. Beyond this, the lawned garden descends via further terraces areas with established shrub and flower beds and there is a thatched open summerhouse and additional seating area overlooking the private woodland below. In all the grounds extend to approximately 1.55 acres.
The property is located in arguably one of the most sought after locations in Dorking. Park Copse is a highly regarded rhododendron lined private road of prestigious houses, situated just over half a mile from Dorking town which offers a comprehensive range of shopping, social, recreational and educational amenities with facilities for the commuter from Dorking railway station (Victoria and Waterloo) being within close proximity (1 mile). The M25 is accessed seven miles north equidistant via the A24 to Leatherhead Junction 9 or the A25 to Reigate Junction 8. The general area is famous for its outstanding countryside including Ranmore and Boxhill (National Trust) and is ideal for the walking and riding enthusiast. The established Betchworth Park Golf Club is adjacent to Park Copse and can be directly accessed through a private gated path leading from Park Copse. The property is also very well placed for the International Airports of Gatwick (13 miles) and Heathrow (30 miles).
