Once in a while an opportunity is presented to live in one of the very best streets in the area, however it is extremely rare to be offered the chance to own such an exceptional award winning home in this location. The Highway is one of South Sutton's most prestigious roads. It is situated within easy reach train station with fast links into London Victoria and also has exceptional Independent schools nearby, such as Sutton Grammar, Banstead Preparatory (formally Greenacre School for girls), Wallington and Nonsuch School for Girls. For leisure, Sutton Tennis & Squash Club is just a short work, you have a choice of 3 great Golf clubs nearby and for horse riding you will only have to drive about 5 minutes too. The tree lined avenue gives a grand feel, every house boasts a wide plot and grand frontage. This property is no exception, the sweeping carriage driveway offers ample parking for several cars and a garage.

As you walk into the main entrance way with original sweeping staircase there is an immediate feeling of space and character.

There is a large sitting room with a re-instated working fire place and bay window to the rear with doors opening onto the patio. The owners have applied exceptional attention to detail, right down to the original refurbished internal doors and door handles, while custom made shutters have been added throughout! The high ceilings are also an attractive feature.

The bespoke contemporary/vintage kitchen has been opened up into the previous dining room creating open plan living, which is designed to suit a modern lifestyle. There is a pantry/utility room with space for 2 washing machines and plenty of storage. The kitchen has been designed to suit a large family, with a triple oven range including a grill. A larder style fridge and ladder freezer plus 2 dishwashers. The tile splash back above the oven is the first taste of the exceptional tiling throughout this home. A further room downstairs is the first of 6 bedrooms with its own en-suite wet room. This room could be a handy play room, or alternative office, or a great guest room. There is also a lovely separate office adjoined to the kitchen, overlooking the garden.

Upstairs the space continues to impress, the principle bedroom overlooks the rear garden with a large feature bay window and full wet room with wall to floor grade A Statuario marble. The underfloor heating in this wet-room even goes up one wall to dry your towels on.

Bedroom 5 is a double room but it also joins to the principle bedroom and could easily be used as a dressing room or nursery.

Another large bedroom, with bay window overlooks the front of the house, while 2 further double bedrooms both benefit from exceptional full wet rooms, again with bespoke tiling and exquisite attention to detail! The family bathroom/wet room really offers the wow factor with a beautiful free standing bath and massive walk in shower, it's a showcase of the award winning tiling which has been fitted in this home. There's even marble windowsills in this bathroom along with other rooms in the house as well as underfloor heating in most tiled areas.

This property was awarded by The Tile Association, "Best Domestic Project UK 2019" due to the large variety of high quality installation of marble, natural stone, porcelain and victorian tiles throughout, not to mention the reclaimed pavers lifted from Piccadilly Circus around the log cabin and black marble from the Savoy Hotel!

While the internal features of the home are exceptional, we feel that the garden here is one of the best we have seen in the area. As expected, there has been no expense spared in any part of creating the outside reception areas, so it is easy to see why the current owners consider outdoor living as important as any other part of the house. As with any garden, it is always the warmer months where you will get the best out of the garden space. However, using thoughtful design, the owners have created a private and secluded space which offers an all year round entertainment. The patio runs the whole length of the house and leads through well-manicured shrubs and planting into the main seating and dining area in the centre of the garden. A grape vine pergola has been created as a charming doorway into the rest of the garden, which has been completely landscaped and levelled to create a large lawn, perfect for making the most of the westerly aspect. To the rear of the garden a further area to socialise has been created with a massive fire pit for warmth on winter evenings. There is a log cabin to the rear which is currently set up as a games room, but could be a great home office away from the house. There is power and internet connection to the cabin too. For the younger members of the family, there is a fantastic play area tucked away at the back corner of the garden, with tree houses, slides, and sunken trampoline!

The garden is bordered by a high newly installed fence, while mature trees and shrubs have been planted to create the ideal private garden space. A variety of fruit trees are included in this, meaning you will have an abundance of fruit, such as figs, apples, cherries and of course the grape vine previously mentioned. As well as the 4 sheds, there are areas for log stacks and parts of the garden have irrigation installed to ease the maintenance further. There is outside lighting and power to the front and back of the garden too. A further exceptional feature of this complete garden is the original outdoor bar area, with blue limestone bar worktops, that gets the last of the sun every day, creating another dimension to the outside space, which is easily going to be used all year round. Formerly a "Gardeners toilet" was retained by the current owners, as an essential part of their outside living lifestyle. What makes this WC so special is the tile company who have installed the tiles throughout also won an award for the work they carried out at the Savoy Hotel in 2011. The Nero Marquina tiles used on that job have also been installed into this impressive outside loo, what a great feature and story to share with your guests!

Overall this property is one of the best examples of a family home we have seen in the area for a very long time. The quality is proven with external awards applied to the work carried out in this very house, but that aside, the design and feel of the house and especially the garden, creates a superb home which you will be proud to drive up to.

This really is a home to be proud of and truly unique in many ways. Please contact Luke Martin-Jones of Lancasters Estate agents to personally discuss an internal viewing of this property. We can also offer virtual guided tours if this is a preferred route.
