About this property

  • Cobwood Down is an attractive and characterful property dating from 1884 with a number of sympathetic and cleverly designed extensions, and located along a rural lane at the foot of the North Downs. The versatile accommodation is well presented throughout and offers the incoming purchaser the scope to update and refurbish as required. The elevated position offers wonderful southerly views and within the grounds is a heated swimming pool and stabling together with a couple of paddocks. In total the plot amounts to about 1.72 acres.

    The principal reception rooms all have a wonderful southerly aspect with the drawing room featuring an open fire and double doors to the terrace. Both the dining and sitting rooms have attractive bay windows, one of which has a window seat. There is also a conservatory with an attractive outlook over the gardens.

    The spacious kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base units with space for appliances and an adjoining fully glazed breakfast room with an attractive outlook and direct access to the gardens.

    Completing the ground floor is a study, utility room and cloakroom.

    Arranged over the first floor are four double bedrooms, all with wardrobes and all have an attractive outlook over the gardens. One is served by a well-appointed en suite shower room and has a lift to the ground floor.

    The family bathroom has an airing cupboard and completes the first floor.

    The house is approached over a driveway which culminates in a parking area to the front and the integral garaging.

    The beautiful established gardens surround the house and provide year round interest with wide swathes of lawn interspersed by trees and shrubs together with well stocked flower borders. Beside the breakfast room there is a post and rail fence enclosed terrace with rose beds and to the south is a paved terrace stretching the width of the property, both providing ideal areas for al fresco entertaining. The heated swimming pool has a paved surround and a summerhouse all enclosed by a post and rail fence with an adjacent pump house. Within the garden is a brick outhouse and adjoining gardeners W.C.

    The stables are approached from a spur drive and comprise two stables, a store and a wood store to the rear.
