About this property

  • Little Wakestone is a substantial and versatile home comprising a stone cottage with contemporary 1960s addition, linked by a glass walled walkway. The period part of the property includes two reception rooms, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The more modern portion of the property has flexible accommodation and is currently laid out as a kitchen/dining room and lounge area on the first floor, with 3 bedrooms and a bathroom below on the ground floor. The property would now benefit from some updating and a programme of modernisation, subject to obtaining the relevant consents.

    The property sits in truly stunning surroundings, with approximately 7 acres of grounds comprising mature woodland, some of which has been coppiced in the past, and areas of meadowland and a natural pond. To one side of the house is an outdoor pool. The driveway leads to an area of parking with various garages and outbuildings.

    A very useful timber studio occupies an elevated position within the plot with delightful views over the grounds and across to the North Downs.
