High Street, Limpsfield, RH8 0DS
LOCATION The delightful, character village of Limpsfield is regarded as one of the prettiest in Surrey, with a friendly community feel offering local stores and a popular tennis club. The larger village of Oxted is approximately 3/4 of a mile distant and boasts a mainline train station, choice of supermarkets including Waitrose and Morrisons, Leisure facilities, a cinema and a range of pubs and restaurants. Junction 6 of the M25 at Godstone is 3 miles distant and provides access to Gatwick and Heathrow airports.
DESCRIPTION The Lodge was converted last year into three separate properties. The entire building benefits from complete new electrics and plumbing, insulated throughout and much of the roof was replaced with reclaimed tiles.
The front door of the Upper Lodge opens into an entrance hall with Victorian mosaic tiled floor, a radiator under a decorative cover and space to hang coats. An under stairs cupboard gives access to a cellar offering further storage. A wide staircase with ornate wooden banister heads up to the first floor turning three corners and passing a large window overlooking the front of the property.
The first floor separates two living areas. The first offers potential to convert to a self contained studio apartment. It currently has a bedroom, shower room and w.c.. A reception room, down some steps, offers views to the rear. The other side of the landing leads to the main accommodation. The entrance hall here leads to the good sized kitchen/dining room, very well appointed with a high quality range of ‘soft closing’ wall and base units. The wooden work surface compliments the units and flooring and is interrupted by the double butler sink and space for an 8 burner range style cooker. The units are set around the edges of the room allowing plenty of space for a large dining table. A separate utility room houses the boiler and boasts the same quality units as the kitchen with a sink and drainer and space for white goods. The spacious living room has two radiators under decorative covers and a large bay window overlooking the rear of the property, the Elizabethan style leaded light bay window floods the room with natural light. The double bedroom (currently being used as a formal dining room) with en-suite has an ornate stone fireplace against one wall, a double aspect over the front and side of the property and decorative cornicing and radiator covers complimenting the rest of the house. The en-suite has a bath with shower over, w.c., wash hand basin and heated towel rail.
The second floor landing offers original floorboards complimenting the exposed brickwork and would make a wonderful space for reading perhaps with a Velux window and small leaded light window to the rear. Two double bedrooms and a bathroom occupy this floor. The larger of the two rooms, with triple aspect windows has a large walk-in attic room. The recently refurbished bathroom has a Victorian roll top bath with a shower built in to the ceiling directly above the centrally located bath, complimented by a Victorian style wand hand basin and w.c..
The property comes with two allocated parking spaces to the rear and has a front terraced area.
