A unique and highly desirable detached Victorian lodge house positioned in a lovely setting with views across Harestone Valley. The lodge dates back to 1864 and retains many period features but has been sympathetically modernised. The accommodation is well presented and includes a spacious reception hall, which leads into the reception room with wooden floors and an attractive Minster stone open fireplace. French doors open onto the garden and the triple aspect gives it a light airy feel. There is a formal dining room with feature Victorian fireplace and stripped wood floors. The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of fitted units with Amtico floors and integrated dishwasher, Bosch double oven, Bosch gas hob and space for a plumbed American style fridge/freezer. From here there is a rear lobby, two utility cupboards with plumbing for a washing machine and a study with wood floors. A door from the entrance hall leads to a downstairs WC and stairs lead to the first floor where there are three generously proportioned bedrooms, the main of which has lovely views over the garden and double doors to a Juliet balcony. The family bathroom has a modern white suite with separate shower cubicle and Amtico floor.
The property is located at the top end of a highly regarded residential road and moments from open countryside, about 0.7 miles from Caterham town centre and railway station with services to London Bridge and Victoria in about 45 minutes. The M25 (J6) is about 2.5 miles. There are schools for boys and girls of all ages in both the state and private sectors within the Tandridge District including nearby Caterham School. Leisure facilities in the area include the De Stafford Sports Centre, tennis courts, equestrian establishments and golf courses, including Surrey National at Chaldon.
The lodge is approached through a pillared entrance with double gates leading into a driveway, which offers a private parking area. There is a front garden which has been paved with decorative flower beds and a path leading to an oak front door. With doors from the reception room, the main garden is to the south side of the house and has a paved terrace with distant views with steps leading onto the main area of lawn, which is enclosed by trees and hedges giving it a high degree of privacy and a rural feel. There is a summer house, potting shed and two single detached garages with electrical supply to the rear of the lodge.
