About this property

  • Three Gables is a distinctive and impressive family home dating from the 1920s with two later extensions. The property has been refurbished and modernised to an exceptionally high standard by the current owners who have retained and enhanced the period features. The accommodation is well proportioned throughout and provides both formal and informal entertaining areas. Of particular note are the wonderful established gardens and grounds which provide an attractive backdrop and a high degree of privacy to the house. Within the grounds, which in total amount to just over one acre, are a heated swimming pool, summer house, tennis court and child's play area. The house is located within a tree lined private road on the edge of Limpsfield village and the larger town of Oxted is approximately 1.5 miles away.

    Features include a bespoke kitchen by Chambers furniture, modern bathroom suites, in-ceiling speakers, attractive fireplaces, parquet flooring, column radiators, oak thumb latch doors, lead light windows and a number of window seats.

    The principal reception rooms comprise an elegant drawing room, a spacious triple aspect sitting room with bi-folding doors to the rear terrace, a dining room and a family room both well located to the kitchen/breakfast room. There is also a study. All these rooms have wonderful views over the rear garden.

    The impressive and modern double aspect kitchen/breakfast room has been fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base cupboards by Chambers Furniture. There is a gas fired four oven Aga and a range of Miele appliances. A walk-in cupboard provides a useful utility area.

    The impressive master suite is arranged over the first floor and features a spacious bedroom with a wonderful outlook over the rear garden, a fitted dressing room and a well-appointed en suite bathroom with separate shower.

    The guest wing is approached from a secondary staircase which rises to the part vaulted bedroom and stylish bathroom.

    There are three further bedrooms, located within the main house. One has a passageway, with limited head height, to a dressing room (currently used as an occasional bedroom) and en suite bathroom. Another has an en suite shower room. Completing the first floor is a well-appointed family bathroom.

    The house is approached over a carriage driveway which provides ample parking for a number of cars and leads to the integral garage with electric up and over door. The garage also has a range of base units, a sink and plumbing for appliances.

    The gardens and grounds are established and superbly maintained providing a wonderful backdrop to the property. There is a formal front garden with standard roses and lavender under planted with tulips. To the rear is a generous brick edged paved terrace stretching the width of the property and providing an excellent area for al fresco entertaining. The pool area is flanked by a number of standard Indian bean trees and comprises a heating swimming pool with a safety cover, a pool house with a shower room and a separate pump house. Within the garden is a tennis court, a picket fence enclosed child's play area and an ornamental pond set within the level lawn, enclosed by box hedging and a rose garden. There is also a garden shed and a compost area set behind a high evergreen hedge where a secondary vehicular entrance is located.
