LOCATION Conveniently set in the friendly community of Old Oxted, with its wealth of character properties and gastro pubs. The commuter town of Oxted is a short walk away, with a mainline service to East Croydon and central London (London Bridge and Victoria – 40 minutes).

There are a number of good local state and independent schools for all ages. These include Limpsfield and Downs Way Infant Schools, St Marys Junior School, Oxted School (with a sixth form department) in the state sector and Hazelwood School in the independent sector.
PROPERTY DESCRIPTION This beautiful Grade II listed building is entered through a large stable door into the spacious living room with surprisingly high ceilings and large, shuttered window to the front. Bespoke cupboards and shelving are built around the open, brick fireplace with travertine hearth. Amtico flooring runs from the living room through the dining room. The dining room, with original exposed beams and brickwork, forms part of the original building, some of which dates back to the 1600’s. There is a window to the side and a second brick built fireplace. There is access to the cellar (with full head height), refurbished a few years ago, providing an ideal space for a TV room/playroom/study. The tasteful kitchen runs along the back of the house with doors to the patio area, garden and annexe. There is a comprehensive range of wall and base units with a contrasting wood worktop. An integrated fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, double oven, microwave and 5 ring gas hob with extractor fan are all included.
A pretty staircase leads to the first floor landing with two exceptionally spacious bedrooms, both benefitting from ensuites. The bedroom to the front has shuttered windows, high ceiling and a picture rail, along with an ensuite shower room with walk in shower cubicle, wash hand basin with mixer tap, w.c., tiled walls and floor. The second bedroom has a window to the side, exposed beams, an understairs storage cupboard and access to the very generously sized ensuite bathroom. This comprises a double sized Jacuzzi bath with hand held shower and tiled surround, a wall hung wash hand basin, w.c. and a wall of built in wardrobes providing a useful dressing area.
Stairs from the landing lead to the second floor with a further double bedroom with exposed beams to the walls and ceiling, a Velux style window and access to a useful loft storage area. The ensuite bathroom, again with exposed beams, provides a bath with hand held shower and mixer taps, wash hand basin, w.c. and window to the rear.
OUTSIDE There are two patio areas to the rear of the property providing ample areas to sit and socialise. Steps lead down to the garden, with a storage area built under the patio. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees and access to the 2 parking spaces. There is also access to the quirkily named Mouse Hall, the detached, self contained annexe with a kitchenette, shower room, dining area and living/bedroom, ideal for an au-pair, family member, or to rent out.
