About this property

  • This property is a spacious and stunningly appointed Victorian family home of great character, centrally situated within the popular village of Chipstead. The current vendors carried out a complete renovation and a significant extension in 2019 to create light, versatile and beautifully presented accommodation. Arranged over three floors, character feel has been combined with contemporary styling to great effect, providing ideal areas for entertaining and family living. Salient points include multi-pane windows and window shutters, exposed ceiling timbers, radiator covers, an attractive open fireplace, a striking vaulted ceiling with skylights, a superb kitchen by Rencraft and stylish bathroom suites. Of further note is the attractive landscaped rear garden which has been designed by a Chelsea Flower Show Gold medal winner and ample off-road parking, together with the property's excellent location to the local primary schools, both being within approx. 0.6 miles by footpath.

    The elegant, well-proportioned sitting room has a double aspect and features a large square bay window, exposed ceiling timbers and an attractive open fireplace. A striking glass balustrade separates this room from the kitchen, allowing light to flood both rooms and creating an excellent split level lay out for informal entertaining.

    The double aspect kitchen/dining room features a magnificent, vaulted ceiling with skylights and exposed ceiling timbers.

    The superb kitchen by Rencraft is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base units, integral appliances, including a double range oven and an island unit incorporating a breakfast bar and a sink. A set of doors provides access to and views over the rear garden.

    The utility room provides further storage, space for appliances and access to outside.

    Adjoining this room is a well-appointed shower room.

    On the lower ground floor, there is a snug/cinema room with built-in storage.

    Arranged over the first floor are two bright double bedrooms, one benefiting from built-in storage. A third bedroom is currently utilised as a study.

    A stylish family bathroom featuring a separate shower and a freestanding oval bath, completes the accommodation.

    To the front of the house is a low-level brick wall, topped with evergreen hedging with a path leading to the gabled porch and front door. An adjacent driveway provides ample parking.

    A sloped path leads to a side entrance door and an area of lawn, which is flanked on each side with borders. The path leads onto the rear garden, which is predominantly paved and ideal for al fresco entertaining. The garden, which has been designed by a Chelsea Flower Show Gold medal winner, is interspersed with flower beds planted with specimen trees and herbaceous shrubs, with a seating area to the rear. A set of stone steps lead to a small terrace and a set of doors which open to the dining room. The entire garden is enclosed by close board fencing, creating a high degree of privacy.
