6 bed home on the Crown Estate in plot of 0.71 acres
Located in Oxshott's prestigious and private Crown Estate, 19 Princes Drive was built by the current owners in 1958 and offers a wonderful opportunity to refurbish an established house or build a completely new one (subject to planning permission). This lovely property is east facing and sits on a plot measuring over 0.71 of an acre.
The house is remarkably open plan for a property of its age. The ground floor has a sizable kitchen/breakfast room and five reception rooms. On the first floor there are six bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Leading to the house is a driveway which affords parking for numerous cars with a front garden that is mainly laid to lawn. Next to the attached garage is a useful carport. The rear garden is wonderful, there is a gorgeous barn which was originally built in 1785 and was moved to the site by the current owners. The barn is currently used as a games room but could equally make a fabulous home office. There are two swimming pools both outdoor and indoor and a full size tennis court.
The property backs on to fields with the wonderful woodland backdrop of Prince's Coverts which is an area of 864 acres of managed woodland. Access to these woods is provided by a footpath adjacent to the property.
For the commuter, transport links are excellent - a 32 minute train journey from Oxshott mainline station takes you to London Waterloo, whilst the A3 and M25 nearby give easy road access both to central London, the wider motorway network and to Heathrow Airport (about 18 miles) and Gatwick Airport (about 22 miles).
A selection of shops and amenities are available locally in and around Oxshott, Cobham & Esher, with larger shopping centres at Kingston (about 7 miles) and Guildford (about 14 miles).
There are excellent sporting facilities in the area, with several golf clubs as well as the Oxshott Village Sports Club. The Beaverbrook Country Club is also nearby. In the wider area, racing is available at Ascot, Windsor, Kempton Park and Sandown. Oxshott Heath and Esher Common are both nearby and are excellent for recreation and dog walking.
There is an impressive selection of schools in the area, including Danes Hill School in Oxshott and Reed's School in Cobham, Claremont Fan Court in Esher, Rowan Preparatory School in Claygate and the Yehudi Menuhin and ACS in Cobham.
