    About this property

    • Dating back to 1924, Forest Lodge is a charming family home set in an idyllic semi-rural location, nestled in the heart of the Surrey Hills.

      Stepping inside you are greeted by an inviting entrance hall that seamlessly leads you into the heart of the home - the kitchen/breakfast room. This well-appointed space boasts wooden cabinetry and granite worktops, complemented by a delightful window seat and a dining area that offers enchanting views of the gardens. The house features three elegantly proportioned reception rooms, each with its own distinctive allure. The generous-sized sitting room, boasting dual aspects, draws in natural light while showcasing an open fireplace, creating an inviting ambiance. The formal dining room, adorned with a bay window, is equally charming, providing another inviting space with its own captivating fireplace. One of the most delightful aspects of the property is the sunroom, a modern extension that bathes in an abundance of natural light. Its sliding/bifold doors effortlessly connect the interior to the raised terrace and the enchanting garden beyond, seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor living. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a practical utility room with external access and a convenient cloakroom.

      Venturing to the first floor, you'll find four bedrooms, each exuding its unique character. The principal bedroom is accompanied by built-in storage and a private en suite shower room. Three further bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the upstairs accommodation.

      Beyond the interior lies a truly magnificent garden, encircling the house with its gently sloping lawn and a captivating ornamental pond. Embraced by the presence of mature trees, this offers the utmost privacy, creating an ideal setting for relaxation and enjoyment.

      Approaching the property, a driveway with a convenient turning circle leads the way, revealing the added benefits of a spacious garage, complete with two attached stores and a separate log store, providing ample storage for your needs.

      Whilst Forest Lodge has been maintained with care and affection by the same owner for over 26 years, there remains promising potential to modernise and update throughout.
