A rare opportunity to purchase a wonderful country house in magnificent private grounds yet highly accessible to London.
One of the area's most significant houses, originally an oak-framed Hall House thought to be built in the late 14th century, with various additions over the years all enhancing this charming country house.
Originally part of the Chipstead Manor, the house has been owned by a succession of Lords and dignitaries and was believed to have been used as a hunting lodge by Edward VII, Prince of Wales.
Having gone through a comprehensive renovation and sympathetic refurbishment over the past 25 years to restore the many period features whilst adding the refinements expected in a modern and flexible family home that is also ideal for entertaining. Amounting to around 10807 sq ft in total. The stunning interior retains a wealth of oak joinery whilst all rooms have a bright and spacious ambiance with large windows and views over its grounds and rolling countryside.
This country house comes with beautiful grounds and a full complement of outbuildings, these include garaging for five cars, garden stores and machinery shed, even a period style greenhouse. An ornamental stone temple overlooking the lake, a sunken walled garden and all-weather tennis court are also features of this fine home. The property benefits from a bore hole supplying the estate with water.
Approached over a long private driveway, nestled in a wonderful setting in the Surrey downs countryside whilst also great for the commute.
Please note the pictures are more than six months old. The property has private drainage.
