Situated on the outskirts of this popular village and within easy reach of amenities is this substantial Tudor-revival family home of approx. 3,793 sq ft, which has been extended and improved by the vendor. The property has exceptional proportions throughout and is ideally suited to large or growing families, with ample space inside and out for all members to have their own space. Much care and attention has been taken over the striking interiors, which feature original beams and period features contrasting with contemporary additions.
The ground floor is entered by an inviting hall with wood-burning stove and comprises four very well-proportioned reception rooms, including a dining room, sitting room with inglenook fireplace, games room with bar and a family room/snug. A highlight of the ground floor is the kitchen/breakfast room, situated in a rear extension with bi-fold doors opening to the rear garden and patio. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with modern wooden units and a sizeable breakfast bar and includes a number of premium appliances including a double oven, five-ring gas hob and feature extractor fan.
The first floor can be accessed by two separate staircases and has five bedrooms, four of which are generously sized double bedrooms fitted with Sharps wardrobes, including a master bedroom with dressing room and en-suite bathroom and two further en-suite bedrooms. In addition there is a family bathroom.
The property stands in a sought after private road within the favoured 'Golden Triangle' and has a convenient location for the commuter with Whyteleafe, Upper Warlingham and Whyteleafe South stations in close proximity. Whyteleafe recreational ground is nearby and has tennis courts and a children’s playground with open spaces ideal for walking and access to delightful walks on Riddlesdown. Warlingham Green has local shops and Caterham (3 miles) has a wider range of shops, Church Walk and a Waitrose Supermarket. The M25 is easily accessible four miles away with connections to Gatwick and Heathrow Airports. Local schools include a primary school at Whyteleafe and Hamsey Green, Warlingham and Caterham Schools.
TRAIN SERVICES: Upper Warlingham Station in Zone 6 is approx. 1.6 miles and provides direct services to London Victoria and London Bridge. There are local bus services to Warlingham, Sanderstead and Croydon.
The property is approached by a grand double gated and electronically operated entrance opening to an enclosed private driveway laid to gravel, with ample off-street parking. The rear garden can be accessed via the reception rooms and kitchen, or a side gate leading alongside the house. To the rear, a very generous patio adjoins the house and is enclosed by a wooden picket fence, with space for outdoor dining and a hot tub (available by separate negotiation). The garden has a wonderfully secluded feel with very high hedges providing an excellent degree of privacy.
