Quarry Road, Oxted, RH8 9HF
LOCATION The house is approached via a sought after cul-de-sac within a short walk of the pretty town of Oxted. This unusually quiet plot, measured in the region of about a third of an acre has an enviable elevated position taking advantage of some far reaching, westerly views.

Oxted and Hurst Green stations (both within walking distance) provide mainline services to East Croydon and central London (London Bridge and Victoria – 30-40 minutes). The town includes a Leisure Complex with swimming pool, Independent boutique Cinema and a range of shops including a Morrisons and a Waitrose. Junction 6 of the M25 is approximately 3 miles distant. There are a number of good local state and independent schools for all ages, some within walking distance. These include Limpsfield and Downs Way Infant Schools, St Mary’s Junior School and Oxted Secondary School in the state sector and Hazelwood School in the independent sector.
PROPERTY DESCRIPTION Built in 1960, this detached family home was extended approximately 15 years ago but still has the potential for further building work (subject to planning) and modernisation. There is a useful brick built porch with a window to the front and tiled floor leading to the spacious entrance hall. You are immediately struck by the bright and airy feel to this home. The entrance hall provides two storage cupboards and access to the rest of the well laid out accommodation. To the right is a large room, formerly two separate rooms. The front of this area is the sitting room with an attractive brick built working fire place with tiled hearth and a window to the side. The lounge is to the rear of the house with sliding patio doors to the garden and a box bay window to the side giving fabulous, elevated westerly views. The kitchen/dining room runs across the back of the house. The kitchen has a range of wall and base units with worktop over, a stainless steel 1 1/2 bowl sink with mixer tap and drainer set beneath the window, an integrated double oven, inset hob with extractor over, space for a dishwasher and a larder cupboard. The kitchen opens to the dining room with sliding doors accessing the rear garden. The utility room sits to the side providing space and plumbing for a washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge/freezer. The family room sits to the front of the house and can be accessed from both the hall and dining area. A cloakroom with w.c., wash hand basin and mirror with light completes the ground floor accommodation.
The stairs to the landing splits at the top giving access to the two newer rooms on the left and the three original bedrooms on the right. To the right the dual aspect, spacious master bedroom benefits from a south-west facing balcony perfect for watching sunsets and overlooks the garden and views beyond. Bedroom two is also a generous double size with westerly views over the garden and bedroom three is also a good size double with plenty of space to put wardrobes and other furniture. The two newer rooms are slightly smaller, one with southerly views overlooking the garden, the other with eaves storage and views to the north. One of the bathrooms is conveniently located between these two bedrooms and offers a bath with shower over, wash hand basin, w.c. and airing cupboard. The landing provides access to the spacious loft that is part boarded and has a light and ladder. The family bathroom has a bath with shower over and wash hand basin with the w.c. located next to the bathroom.
OUTSIDE Set on a quiet, residential road and sits in a nicely secluded spot. There is a large driveway to the front of the house providing off road parking for a number of cars. The south west facing plot is surrounded by attractive mature hedging and lies to the side and rear of the house positioned to capture the best of the sun. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a patio running to the side and rear of the house. A handy gated side passageway provides a path and access to the utility room. There are two sheds tucked away in a corner of the garden.
THE BEST BITS: Excellent opportunity to put your own stamp on a good sized family home. This plot is not over looked and located on a very popular road within walking distance of Oxted town and its mainline station.
