A sizeable, detached and well-presented, period townhouse enjoying delightful views over the neighbouring park offering further potential
Located on this attractive residential road lying within a mile of the town centre and a mainline station 7 Dorking Road is a sizeable, handsome and detached Victorian townhouse, ideally placed for the amenities and extensive choice of primary and secondary schools within the town.
The house benefits from tall ceiling heights and well-proportioned rooms that enjoy plenty of natural light and are well-presented throughout. The accommodation which is arranged over four floors can be configured to suit the individual needs of a family, offering flexibility and longevity.
On entering the house, the ground floor offers two similar sized reception rooms; to the front the sitting room enjoys a large bay window with fitted louvered shutters and fireplace with woodburner; the other reception room (which could be a further bedroom if required) enjoys the wonderful view of the nearby park to the rear, a modern family bathroom completes the accommodation on this floor. Stairs rise to the first and second floors where three further double bedrooms, a fourth single bedroom and further bathroom suite are situated.
The lower ground floor currently provides a large cellar, with a separate utility room, that has direct access to the garden. The modest kitchen, benefits from a very useful pantry cupboard and old coal hole cupboard and effectively utilises the available space, with a range of base and wall units that provide further good storage and preparation space; the kitchen opens onto the conservatory/diner which in turn opens onto and overlooks the gardens and park to the rear.
The lower ground floor is an exciting proposition being the area within the house that is ready to have a new family put their own stamp on the property; planning permission, secured in November 2020, is in place to reconfigure and update this space should buyers wish to do so.

The established rear garden has been much improved by our clients with two paved terraces connected by a smart paved pathway which travels the length of the garden, with a generous expanse of lawn and attractive planting framing the boundaries, creating a lovely area for child's play and outdoor entertaining. The enclosed side access to garden provides a screened storage area for items such as bicycles and wheelie bins.
To the front of the property 7 Dorking Road enjoys driveway parking for a number of cars, which is a further important and coveted asset for this central town location.

The wonderful views are so unexpected for such a convenient, but tucked away town location; Dorking Road feels like a hidden gem! The house offers a really flexible layout, which is well presented and ready to enjoy whilst still offering much potential. A really super opportunity on offer to secure a lovely family home!Natasha Selbie
