Rarely available a substantial family home in the heart of this sought after village, viewing essential
In our opinion this is a perfect family home situated within a short walk of the Crescent enabling young families to take full advantage of all that is on offer in this quintessential English Village.
The property provides excellent family accommodation with an impressive floor area and East-West orientation all windows and doors to the rear elevation afford the owners beautiful rural views. It is indeed difficult to believe that from Woldingham central London is only 25 minutes by train.
From the relaxed tranquillity of the garden room to the more formal dining and drawing rooms each room is an unexpected surprise. Various extensions are testament to the owners wish to remain rather than move from this exclusive neighbourhood and it is therefore many years since this property has changed hands.
Whilst the floor plan demonstrates the functionality of this house we would draw your attention to the arrangement of the accommodation to the northern side where it is considered an annex could be created. We would also suggest that the split level Family room could easily be adapted to serve as a home cinema.
From the first floor the views become even more impressive especially from the two principal bedroom suites arranged at either end of the property. Both suites are independent from the secondary bedrooms and have ample wardrobes/dressing room space.
Outside the views can be enjoyed from the large decked terrace which is retained and gives way to a formal lawn and well stocked borders. The gardens provide great entertaining space whilst green houses offer quiet enjoyment for the productive gardener. Underneath the house there is good dry storage for equipment and a useful workshop.
DIRECTIONS: From Wapses Lodge Roundabout on the A22 take the exit marked Woldingham. Travel along the Woldingham Road past Woldingham School follow the road passing Knights Garden Centre on your left. The road bends sharply to the left just opposite the station and becomes Station Road; proceed up this road into the village turning left into Croft Road just by the church. Continue to the end of Croft Road and turn left. Orchard Cottage will be found a short distance along on the right hand side.
SITUATION: Orchard Cottage is ideally located for Woldingham's local amenities with its church, primary school and garage. It is approximately one mile away from Woldingham station with its commuter service to London and East Croydon (35 and 20 minutes respectively). The area is well served with state and private schools a short drive away. Oxted and Caterham town centres, offering a wider range of shopping, and recreational facilities are close by. The M25/M23 can be reached at Godstone (Junction 6) approximately 4 miles away, giving easy access to Gatwick and Heathrow Airports, the channel ports and tunnel. Local amenities include golf at the nearby 18 hole North Downs and The Woldingham golf courses, tennis and cricket clubs, an amateur dramatic society, horse riding and many walks over the surrounding countryside.
Surrey County Council accepts that Lunghurst Road is an adopted public highway, which means the Highway Authority maintains it.
