THE PROPERTY

AN IMPOSING MID 19TH CENTURY FAMILY HOME OF GREAT CHARACTER IN A SOUGHT-AFTER LOCATION BETWEEN BUCKLAND AND BETCHWORTH ......... The Stream is a magnificent and substantial Victorian family home of great charm and character, requiring modernisation and refurbishment throughout. It is being offered to the market for sale for the first time in 50 years. The accommodation as can been seen on the floorplan is very spacious and versatile and there are a host of fine traditional period features evident throughout this beautiful and distinctive property. The accommodation briefly comprises as follows: an impressive entrance porch with original front door gives way to a magnificent reception hall. The sitting room is a charming room having an open fireplace, with French doors opening onto the gardens. Double doors lead through to an impressive dining room again with French doors to the grounds. In addition, there is an office, a store/pool room overlooking the swimming pool and an inner hall. The kitchen/breakfast room gives way to the utility room, pantry, boiler room and further storeroom. There is also a second cloakroom. From the reception hall, a fine oak staircase rises to a grand first floor landing, with a feature lantern light and like the reception hall, forms a wonderful central feature to the house. To the first floor, there are six bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate WC. A further staircase rises to the second floor, where there are three further bedrooms and a bathroom. The property is approached by a long drive, which crosses a small bridge over a stream and terminates in a large gravelled parking area. There is ample scope subject to the usual planning consents to build a garage if so desired. The grounds are a particularly attractive feature of The Stream, extending in all, to about 0.8 of an acre, and enjoy a high degree of seclusion thanks to a variety of tall screening trees particularly to the front and rear boundaries. There is also a swimming pool with an adjacent terrace located just to the rear of the house. The grounds offer tremendous potential to create a stunning landscaped secluded environment. Historical Note: The Stream was owned in the early years of its existence by the famous Vanderbilt family who had shipping and railroad empires in the US and connections locally in Dorking and Holmwood.
