Situated on the edge of Horsell Common at the end of an impressive tree lined cul de sac is this quite beautiful detached family home. Completely refurbished, extended and upgraded by the current owners this exceptional property exudes style and elegance throughout. From the wooden floors of the entrance hall and lounge to the period feature fireplace and exposed brick wall in the main reception area, the whole house has been lovingly renovated, retaining period features whilst expertly blending contemporary design. A Mark Wilkinson kitchen and central granite top island sit perfectly alongside the family and dining space offering wonderful views across the landscaped patio and south facing garden, with gated access to the common beyond. The accommodation further includes 4 good size bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with Burlington fittings, a study, attached garage and sizeable utility room leading to the rear garden. Modern comforts include underfloor heating to the main living area and study. Off street parking for multiple cars is available.
The Common is famous for being the spot where the Martians landed in local author HG Wells thrilling ‘War of the Worlds’ novel, later made in to a Hollywood blockbuster movie starring Tom Cruise. This picturesque Surrey spot has hundreds of acres of land ideal for horse riding, dog walking and a place to exercise. For families there can surely be few better locations, excellent transport links from Woking train station (London Waterloo fast train in under 25 minutes), easy access to The City, south coast and international airports at Heathrow and Gatwick, not to mention outstanding state and private schooling such as St Andrews, Woking High School and Halstead School for Girls within very close proximity. The delightful villages of Horsell and Chobham are just minutes away providing an array of boutiques, local pubs and restaurants.
If you are looking for a long term family home in a great location with fantastic amenities within easy reach then this is a must see property.
The Owner's thoughts....
We love the downstairs layout, the open plan works perfectly for family life with its separation of space for different purposes.
With the glass doors open the garden feels like an extension of the house. It’s a wonderful space for entertaining and we have enjoyed many a party.
With four good sized bedrooms and a separate study and living room, there is space to be alone and together.
Initially drawn to the street for the children to be able to walk to school, there is a pathway at the end which is one of many (all marked clearly with signposts) linking throughout Horsell meaning you don’t have to use the main roads while on bike or foot.
Living surrounded by nature and waking to the sound of birdsong you can imagine you are living in the middle of nowhere and yet from Woking station be in London within 23 minutes. Truly the best of both worlds.
Daily walks with the dogs inevitably end up enjoying a coffee and cake at Heather Farm Cafe, a walkers haven just a few minutes away on foot set amongst the 880 acres of Horsell Common.
The thriving village is also a wonderful part of life in Horsell with a wide choice of gastro pubs, cafes, traditional butcher, baker and greengrocers.
The street is really friendly and has a wonderful sense of community, the neighbours are all lovely with families young and old.
