About this property

  • Hill Side is a charming detached period property situated on a desirable road and excellently positioned for the mainline station and excellent amenities of Oxted town centre. The spacious and well-presented accommodation is arranged over two floors and has retained some period features, including attractive wood framed windows, ornate fireplaces, high ceilings, dado rails, picture rails and deep skirtings. Of particular note are the beautiful open-plan kitchen/dining room; well maintained westerly facing rear gardens with swimming pool; garaging and off-road parking to the front. In total the plot is approaching 1 acre.

    The entrance hall leads via an open arch to the welcoming reception/dining hall featuring a striking fireplace and box bay window, all with attractive herringbone wood flooring. Adjoining the dining hall is a well- proportioned sitting room with a beautiful ornate fireplace. There is also a family room overlooking the delightful gardens. The fully tanked cellar is accessed from this room. A study with fitted bookshelves and a bow bay window enjoys an outlook to the front.

    The elegant kitchen/dining room is a wonderful feature of the property. The kitchen is fitted with a range of bespoke wall and base units with integral appliances together with a central island incorporating a breakfast bar. The adjoining dining room is an excellent entertaining space currently arranged with dining and sitting areas, with large windows and French doors, enjoying views over and access to the garden. A striking roof lantern brings in a wealth of light and creates a bright and airy feel.

    The utility room has a range of wall and base units and space for further appliances. An adjoining storage room and a cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

    Stairs rise from the entrance hall to the first floor and the principal bedroom with garden views, fitted storage and an en suite shower room. There are five further bedrooms, two enjoying en suite facilities, and a family bathroom.

    Hill Side is approached via a carriage driveway with established hedging to the front and mature shrubs to both sides. There is parking for several cars to one side of the property where there is also a detached double garage. The fully enclosed rear gardens are accessed through a pedestrian gate to the side of the property.

    The delightful established rear gardens are a particular feature of the property, being predominantly west-facing and enjoying a high degree of privacy. Attractive stone terraces on two levels adjoin the rear of the property and wrap around a central herbaceous border to the swimming pool, creating an excellent space for outdoor entertaining. The remainder of the garden is arranged over three levels which are predominantly laid to lawn with gravel pathways. The beds and borders are well established with a variety of deciduous and evergreen shrubs, trees and hedging, providing year round interest. In total the plot amounts to 0.99 of an acre.

I love period houses and this is no exception, with the addition of the modern bespoke kitchen, beautiful gardens and in such a convenient spot for the high street and station.
