    About this property

    • Offered to the open market with no onward chain, Hollywood occupies an enviable and private location on the edge of the popular village of Gomshall. Set in glorious gardens and grounds extending to approx. 1.75 acres, with a wealth of charm and character this spacious 4 bedroom house, offering scope to modernise and improve, is available for the first time in sixty five years.

      Understood to date back to the 1920's, with later additions, upon entering the house you are immediately struck by a sense of arrival. A spacious drawing room with feature fireplace extends into a more formal dining room, light and bright, the perfect place to relax and entertain. A south facing garden room accessible from both the drawing room and the kitchen is warm and inviting affording delightful views over well planted gardens. A second reception room, double aspect, offers flexible space and could be utilised as a playroom, snug or study space, ideal for the ‘working from home' demands of modern life. A traditional kitchen, with range of built in cabinets very much establishes itself as the heart of Hollywood – a backdoor off the kitchen gives direct access to a number of stores and main driveway to the front of house.

      At the far end of the house a well proportioned principal bedroom with en suite bathroom and double French doors onto private rear terrace boasts far reaching views over the delightful rear gardens. A central staircase with period oak banister guides you up to the first floor whereby a further three double bedrooms and family shower room can be found. Again, all bedrooms enjoy pretty views over the gardens and grounds. The roof void is easily accessible offering an abundance of storage space. A third bathroom and WC can be found at ground floor level, completing the accommodation.

      Outside, the private gardens enveloping the house are extensive, mainly laid to lawn, displaying mature trees, shrubs and beds - all beautifully maintained. At the bottom of the garden is mature woodland complemented by bluebells, snowdrops, daffodils and a fantastic opportunity to open up far reaching views over neighbouring fields.

      Completing Hollywood are a number of outbuildings - a spacious wooden garden shed/workshop with shiplap cladding as well as a double brick built garage. The gravelled driveway is extensive, accessed via a wooden five bar gate, offering ample parking for a number of cars.
