SUBSTANTIAL 19TH CENTURY HOUSE WITH SEPARATE COTTAGE CLOSE TO THE NOWER...... Falklands is a substantial detached Victorian family home of considerable style and character, dating to around the middle part of the 19th century. The property, which is being offered for sale for the first time in over 30 years, is now in need of modernisation, and offers considerable scope to create an outstanding family home. Many fine traditional features are evident throughout this beautiful family home, such as high ceilings with moulded cornices, panelled doors, traditional windows, fireplaces and a general sense of charm and elegance, which is so typical of a classic 19th century family home. All the rooms are superbly proportioned and to the front, especially from the first floor there are fine open views over Dorking town, towards the Mole Valley Gap with both Ranmore and Box Hill being visible on a clear day. Whilst the accommodation in the main part of the house is impressive in itself, the extensive basement level also offers excellent scope to convert into further living accommodation if so desired. The separate cottage, known as Stable Cottage offers excellent scope for either dependent relatives or perhaps as a home office, studio etc. The cottage has a sitting/dining room and a kitchen/ breakfast room to the ground floor and to the first floor, two double bedrooms and a bathroom. The gardens extend to both the front and the rear and have been well-kept, being laid to lawn with established borders. There is also a good-sized greenhouse, which is orientated due south, plus there is an enclosed courtyard between the main house and the cottage fronted by a pair of wrought iron gates with a flight of steps leading to the rear section of the garden. The rear garden enjoys a southerly aspect and in all, the plot extends to approximately 0.3 of an acre. Please note there is a further area of garden, which is subject to a lease from the neighbouring property.
