About this property

  • Falacre is an impressive family home, situated within Dormans Park, a desirable and tranquil private estate that dates from the late 19th century, located on the outskirts of Dormansland village. The park is popular with commuters, with a footpath linking to the station, and a number of distinctive detached houses set in a warren of private roads in a peaceful, woodland setting. Built in 2018, Falacre is being offered with no onward chain, with beautifully presented and superbly proportioned accommodation totalling over 5,000 sq ft and is arranged over three floors, ideal for formal entertaining and family living. Salient points include a stylish kitchen by Stormer, luxurious bathroom suites, six double bedrooms, underfloor heating, a Rako lighting system, solid walnut internal doors, Italian porcelain flooring and a contemporary wood burning stove. Also of note are the landscaped gardens and detached double garaging, together with the property's excellent proximity to Dormansland village, Lingfield and Oxted.

    A striking columned portico creates an impressive entrance to the imposing reception hall which features a striking walnut and glass staircase, and together with the other reception rooms creates a superb suite of rooms for formal entertaining and family living.

    The principal reception rooms comprise a double aspect sitting room with two sets of French doors opening to a paved terrace and a fireplace inset with a contemporary wood burning stove which links to a cinema room via a set of sliding doors, and a dining room with views over the rear garden, currently utilised as a playroom.

    The superb kitchen/breakfast/dining room is of excellent proportions and features a striking roof lantern. The kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of sleek wall and base units, with integral Miele appliances and work surfaces incorporating an island breakfast bar. From the dining area, a set of bi-fold doors offers a lovely view over the rear garden and a wine cellar by Spirals Cellars can be accessed via a circular glass hatch.

    An adjoining utility room, plant room and a well-appointed cloakroom complete the ground floor.

    A walnut and glass balustrade staircase rises to the first floor and the double aspect principal bedroom, which has a balcony with southerly views and a bank of fitted wardrobes. A luxurious en suite bathroom comprises a double shower, stand-alone bath and twin basins.

    There are three further bedrooms on this floor, one with a charming balcony and two with fitted storage, served by a Jack and Jill bathroom.

    Arranged over the second floor are two bedrooms, both served by stylish en suite shower rooms.

    Falacre is approached over a bonded gravel driveway, situated behind electrically operated wooden entrance gates which lead to the house and the detached double garage, providing ample off road parking. A set of steps, flanked on each side by box hedging, leads to the portico entrance, with mature hedging to the boundaries.

    To the rear, the attractive landscaped gardens are partly walled and predominantly laid to lawn with borders planted with a variety of specimen trees, deciduous and evergreen shrubs and hedging, all providing year round interest and privacy. An attractive terrace spans the width of the house and offers a perfect area for al fresco entertaining. In total, the plot amounts to about 0.53 acres.
