    About this property

    • Nestled in the heart of this historic Surrey village, Broome Cottage stands as an impressive and substantial period village home with grand proportions. This residence enjoys a prime, well established location, exuding a timeless elegance and charm. Under the ownership of the current family since 1981, Broome Cottage presents an opportunity for a new owner to imprint their own style on this charming period home.

      The property boasts an abundance of light and space, featuring reception rooms with high ceilings that provide a sense of grandeur. The generous sized reception hall serves as the focal point, granting access to the three principal reception rooms. The sitting room, seamlessly connected to the kitchen/breakfast room, forms a comfortable and informal family hub. The kitchen/breakfast room itself leads to a utility room with independent access to the garden.

      An elegant staircase rises from the reception hall to an impressive galleried first-floor landing, granting access to six bedrooms, a family bathroom, and a separate shower room. The main bedroom suite stands out with its spacious layout and scenic views over the well-maintained grounds. Additionally, there is a sizable attic room and a cellar.

      The grounds, enjoying a south/south-westerly aspect, have been meticulously maintained, featuring lush lawns, well-stocked flower/shrub beds, borders, mature trees, and a paved sun terrace on the south-westerly side.

      Tucked discreetly to the west side of the garden is the swimming pool, surrounded by an established hedge, along with a garden greenhouse. The property is accessed through a long driveway leading to a turning circle and parking area. A timber back gate, designed for emergency access, and a double garage complete the practical aspects of the property. The expansive grounds, extending to approximately 0.82 acres, harmonise perfectly with the character of the house.

The oldest part of the house is the beamed are at the front of the house on two floors with a cellar below and an attic above.
