About this property

  • A detached family home in this wonderful village setting just a short walk from the village centre and Brockham Green. The house is arranged over two floors to provide around 4,090 square feet of accommodation including the outbuildings. The property has wonderful views over the local countryside from all around the house. Offered to the market for the first time in 88 years, originally built in 1957. The house has been largely re-built by the owners to create a wonderful family home. The result is a comfortable home with the benefits of traditional features like exposed beams, parquet flooring and a wonderful gas AGA.

    On the ground floor there is a substantial double aspect sitting room which maximizes the views of the gardens and surrounding countryside, with access to the terrace and gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room provides a range of modern units along with a substantial gas AGA stove, this leads through to a very useful utility room. The stunning dining room is a lovely feature of the house with full height windows and doors to the garden and charming exposed timberwork. Leading from the dining room is the studio room with a bathroom, ideal as a separate annexe. The useful study completes this floor.

    On the first floor the principal bedroom has a good sized modern bathroom en suite and benefits from charming views over the gardens and surrounding countryside with Juliet balconies on both windows. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom, bedroom three benefits from a Juliet balcony with views.

    The property is ideal for inside/outside living with multiple doors accessing the mature gardens, the heated outdoor pool and orchard. There is a large elevated deck and walkway round the house with plenty of areas to sit and enjoy the gardens. The substantial driveway allows parking for several cars. The mature gardens surround the property and comprise a wonderful and varied mix along with a Hartley Botanic greenhouse.

    The stable block to the rear of the garden could be converted subject to the relevant consents into a range of uses, the garden room close to the kitchen would be ideal for a large home office. There are also 4kw of solar panels on the south facing roof making a significant cost towards utilities.

The inside/outside living is what strikes you with this family home. I also love the outlook over the countryside and yet you are so close to Brockham Green.

There is also the pretty Christ Church that dominates the village green. Brockham is also famous for its fantastic Guy Fawkes fireworks display which has been a regular annual feature for many years and is now considered a local tradition. The neighboring towns of Reigate and Dorking provide a more comprehensive range of shops, cafes, restaurants and facilities.
