    About this property

    • Nestled in the picturesque village of Claygate, this exquisite five-bedroom family home is a wonderful blend of historical charm and elegance. Dating back to 1820, the residence has been thoughtfully extended and enhanced over the years, resulting in a property that seamlessly marries classic architecture with modern comforts.

      Upon entering, you are greeted by a grand reception hall adorned with timeless black and white flooring. To the right lies the elegant dining room with double doors opening outside. To the left, the beautiful drawing room awaits, a radiant double-aspect space illuminated by light streaming through double doors that open onto the generous lawned garden. A charming fireplace adds character and the adjacent study offers the perfect work-from-home space, enhanced by fitted furniture. The heart of the home lies within the stunning kitchen/breakfast room, meticulously designed in a shaker style by Martin Moore. Cream cabinetry adorned with contrasting dark granite and pale wooden worktops exudes timeless elegance, while an emerald green Aga and pale green dresser unit add a touch of character and warmth. A fitted L-shaped bench seamlessly integrates with a large square dining table, providing a charming space for casual family meals or lively gatherings with a useful second staircase at the rear to the first floor.
      Accessed via the kitchen, a utility area and guest WC offer practicality and convenience, with a secondary entrance providing easy access to the property.

      Ascending the staircase, the upstairs of this historic Claygate home reveals a treasure trove of character-filled double bedrooms, each with its own unique charm and personality. Bedroom three is a delight, basking in natural light from its dual aspect windows and enjoying a raised area adorned with window seating, accessible via a small step. A second door leads to a tiny mezzanine, offering a whimsical hideaway and direct access to bedroom four. Bedroom five meanwhile exudes a cozy ambiance, boasting dual aspect windows and fitted bookshelves.
      The family bathroom features a roll-top bath, half-panel tongue and groove walls, shuttered windows, and a separate walk-in shower, all accented by bespoke fitted furniture, blending functionality with classic style.
      The principal bedroom, accessed via a few steps, is a wonderful retreat where high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling storage create a sense of grandeur. A Juliet balcony bathes the room in natural light and gives views over the picturesque garden below. The en suite shower room is discreetly concealed behind a door within the fitted wardrobes and accessed via a couple of steps down.
      Exiting the principal bedroom, a hallway on the left reveals fitted cupboards past which, at the end of a corridor, you find bedroom two. This spacious room, built over the garage, exudes rustic charm with exposed beams and two dormer windows, offering a tranquil sanctuary and versatility for use as required, with fitted cupboards for added convenience. As you exit this room you have the second staircase taking you directly down into the kitchen.

      Outside the expansive garden wraps around the house. There is a garage to the side of the house with gate access via the bridleway to the rear. Brand new paving runs the length of the house to the right providing off-street parking for two cars.
