Surrounded by beautiful open countryside with stunning views of the North Downs, this superb detached home dates back to 1855. Impeccably presented throughout, high ceilings, sash windows and graceful period features add plenty of charm and character. Beautifully light and bright, this three storey home offers a wonderfully easy flowing layout. Generating a hugely welcoming feel, the large entrance hall leads down to a wonderful triple aspect kitchen with its pretty Amtico floor and exposed brickwork. Fully fitted with bespoke cabinets; a rustic log burner adds a cosy feel and the generous proportions easily accommodate a breakfast table, while a stable door opens onto the gardens. A separate utility room has access to the cellar, and a stylish cloakroom.

On the ground floor two reception rooms generate an inviting space to spend time together as a family. Triple aspect windows in the sitting room supply stunning views across the landscape and an

elegant Yorkstone fireplace with a log burner lends a classic focal point. The adjacent dining room with its duo of tall sash windows provides a formal space to entertain, while an additional study has a

wealth of fitted bookshelves. The magnificent flow of natural light continues on the first floor where four bedrooms supply ideal family accommodation.

Sympathetically styled, a double aspect principle bedroom allows you to enjoy the superb views from the comfort of your own bed. Fitted wardrobes supply ample storage, while an en suite shower room adds a touch of luxury. Equally well-presented, three further bedrooms each feature fitted wardrobes and while two benefit from

double aspect windows all three share a pretty family bathroom with a full size bath and overhead shower.
