A fine character family home on Ashtead Park set in almost 1.7 acres
Coming to the market for the first time in over 50 years, this striking family home offers well balanced accommodation, arranged over two floors and now offers the perfect opportunity to add a new lease of life. Approached via a carriage driveway, Great Oaks, sits in 1.685 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens. It is rare to find a plot of such maturity. Adjacent to the house is Ashtead Park Nature Reserve, offering 45 acres of historic parkland with woodland, glades, grass meadows and ponds. The adjacent woodland belongs to The Surrey Wildlife Trust.
Dating from the 1930s, this Sussex farmhouse' style property has retained a wealth of character features, including oak latched doors to the ground floor and ornate door furniture to the first floor.
The welcoming entrance hall affords access to all the principal reception rooms. The drawing room is double aspect with a lovely Minster stone fireplace. The triple aspect sitting room is well proportioned and enjoys plenty of natural light, with full height windows and double doors leading to the terrace and rear garden. The kitchen would benefit from updating and enjoys views of the rear garden and includes a Range cooker, Miele dishwasher and fridge freezer. The dining room with feature fireplace and a guest cloakroom completes the downstairs accommodation.
Upstairs provides the master bedroom with built in wardrobe and a separate dressing room, which could be converted to an en suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, two family bathrooms and a separate WC.
Outside, the landscaped gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with an abundance of mature shrubs, including a stunning array of multi-coloured rhododendron. The gardens wrap around the house and are home to some magnificent specimen oak trees. The terrace area provides the perfect area in which to entertain and relax. There is also a summer house and useful garden shed. The woodland area to the side offers ideal dog walking on the doorstep. There are two separate garages, a log store and a sweeping gravel carriage driveway to the front of the house.
