About this property

  • Set in a delightful rural location, The Old Pump House is a former Victorian pumping station which is understood to date from the 1900's. Having been converted in 1993 to a dwelling, the current owners have modernised and restored this unique property to a high standard, still with an abundance of charm and character. It enjoys wonderful north west facing views towards the North Downs and benefits from ample off street parking and a four bay garage with WC facilities.

    The striking reception hall with high vaulted ceiling runs the entire width of the house with twin split level staircases. The light and airy reception rooms are of excellent proportions and include a sitting room with two original full height windows and gas fired wood burner, double doors lead into the adjoining formal dining room and a separate study room with fitted desk unit and cupboards is accessed off the reception hall. The kitchen is well fitted with space for various appliances and a walk in pantry, adjoining this is a delightful breakfast room which together with the kitchen, enjoys fantastic views across open countryside. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a conservatory which is an idyllic sun spot with double doors that lead onto the garden terrace.

    Twin split level staircases lead up from the reception hall to the first floor landing. The generous sized principal bedroom offers an abundance of light through a substantial Velux window, along with fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. A key feature of this bedroom is the exposed original framework which offers a wealth of character. Completing the split level upper floors are two double bedrooms, served by a family bathroom and separate shower room.

    The driveway is flanked by level lawn and a pretty gravel area with seating area, together with parking for several cars, a four bay garage with two up and over doors. Lying to the east is a summerhouse with bar area, electric heaters and outside, a decked area with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. The rear garden is delightful with the majority laid to lawn along with an array of raised flower beds, vegetable patches and a horse chestnut tree. This garden is beautifully positioned to enjoy the rural views of the adjoining countryside and further afield towards the North Downs.
