The Meadows is a superb Edwardian village house in an enviable location, set back, but overlooking the village green in Brockham. It is a substantial and welcoming family home of great character where the accommodation flows well.
The main living rooms have open fires, excellent proportions and good ceiling heights, typical of the houses of this period. The kitchen is fitted with a large central island and breakfast bar area, and there is direct access out to the rear garden. Main and back stairs lead up to six great bedrooms and four bath/shower rooms (2 ensuite) upstairs.
A side gate from the drive gives access to the self- contained 1 bedroom 'Coach House' annex, which has a kitchen area in the main living room and there is a beautifully appointed shower room. This side gate also gives full and convenient access to the back of the property.
The property is accessed through electric gates and there is extensive parking on the gravel drive. The house fronts onto the village green and there are views over this attractive open space to the parish church on the opposite side.
The gardens are a very special feature. They have been landscaped with sun-trap terraces adjoining the house and further down the garden, strategically positioned amongst planted borders and beds, and by an attractive pond and water feature, to catch the sun all through the day. There are areas of level lawn and the established tree and hedge boundaries provide great privacy and seclusion.
A gate leads to the private meadow beyond the garden, which in turn runs down to the banks of The River Mole with extensive opportunities for private fishing. In all there are approaching 4 acres.
Brockham village is highly regarded in the area, with its picturesque green, shops, pubs, church, school, doctor's surgery and veterinary centre. The village website, www.brockham.org, identifies many of the clubs, societies and local facilities.
Dorking and Reigate, market town centres, are a short drive away offering major supermarkets, leisure centres, theatres, cinemas and main line stations connecting to London Victoria, London Bridge, Waterloo and Reading.
The area is particularly well known for the surrounding countryside which is ideal for walking, riding and outdoor pursuits. Brockham sits at the base of Box Hill and Leith Hill National Trust areas, part of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
