A PARTICULARLY FINE VICTORIAN HOUSE OF ELEGANT PROPORTIONS IN AN ESTABLISHED AND CONVENIENT LOCATION ........ Grinstead's End is a charming 19th century substantial family home offering superbly proportioned accommodation. Traditional features include high ceilings, some with moulded cornices, sliding sash windows, some of which retain their original window shutters, original fireplaces to some of the rooms, panelled doors, and an impressive period staircase which rises to a spacious first floor landing. The principal reception rooms - notably the drawing room, study/library, dining room and the master bedroom are beautifully proportioned and to the first floor there are fine views particularly from the main bedroom and the third bedroom northwards over Dorking towards Box Hill and the North Downs. There is additional ground floor accommodation consisting of a bedroom/living room and a bathroom which is currently accessed from a separate outside door leading from the rear gardens. If so desired a simple alteration would enable any future owner to gain access to this part of the house via the dining room as can be seen from the floorplans. There is also an attic with access gained from the first floor landing via a pulldown ladder and a cellar. The gardens are a delightful feature of Grinstead's End and completely surround the property. The northern section of the garden is triangular in shape with the boundaries defined by high screening hedges which provide excellent seclusion. This area is laid to grass - in addition there is an upper level of lawn which runs directly behind the north face of the house. The garden leads round to the eastern part of the house and, again, with the continuation of high screening hedges, provides good seclusion. An extensive flagstone patio extends to the southern side of the house together with a hot tub which is recessed flush with the surface of the patio. The western part of the garden is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature shrubs and screening trees. A pathway leads to a gate which in turn leads to Falkland Grove. The double garage which has two electric up and over doors is accessed from Falkland Road and there is a flight of steps to the right of the garage which leads to the garden together with a patio which sits atop the garage roof. In all, the plot extends to about 0.275 of an acre. Please note planning permission was granted July 2018 for the erection of a single storey side orangery extension following demolition of existing side annexe, new front bay extensions, relocation of front entrance and alterations to other doors and windows, new access and entrance gates off Falkland Grove and landscaping MO/2018/1256/PLAH.
