AN ELEGANT FAMILY HOME OF GREAT CHARACTER ENJOYING AN ESTABLISHED LOCATION IN THIS FAVOURED SURREY HILLS VILLAGE ............. Deerleap House is a charming and elegant family home of great character, built we understand during the 1920/1930s and offering first class and superbly proportioned family accommodation. Nearly all of the rooms enjoying a fine open outlook over the property's mature grounds. The property has been modernised and redecorated by the current owners in a most tasteful manner and they have owned Deerleap House since 1991. The accommodation briefly comprises an impressive and substantial front door leading to the spacious entrance hall. In turn, a glazed door leads through to an elegant reception hall with an impressive staircase rising to the first floor. The drawing room is charming with an attractive Arts and Crafts style inglenook fireplace. The two adjoining rooms, the family room and the study make ideal entertaining areas, and the kitchen, which is well-equipped with a range of cupboards and appliances, has a gas fired AGA and gives way through to the breakfast room, which in turn leads through to a delightful garden room with a fine aspect over the gardens. There is a secondary entrance to the north of the house giving access to the good-sized utility room and from the hall, the staircase rises to the teenagers/guest bedroom two. This part of the house has potential, if so desired, to create an annex or semi self-contained accommodation. To the first floor, there are six bedrooms with the principal bedroom having an en-suite bathroom and the teenage/guest bedroom also having an en-suite bathroom. There is also a separate family bathroom. The house has a wonderful bright and airy feel to it, thanks to the high ceilings, with a number of the rooms enjoying a double aspect. The grounds of Deerleap House are a particularly attractive feature and having been very well-kept over many years, comprising sweeping level lawns with the boundaries defined by mature hedges. The approach is most impressive with a levelled gravel driveway, leading to a generous parking area to the front of the triple garage. There are two edged lawn areas, established flower borders running to the front of the house and, to the left between the house and the garage, there is an ancient and rather lovely old oak tree. Located adjacent to the garden room and on the south side of the house, is a patio with a discreetly tucked away heated swimming pool and an adjacent sun terrace - the all weather tennis court is located at the northern end of the grounds. From various parts of the gardens, there are fine open views with the North Downs and Ranmore Common - visible. In all the grounds extend to just over one acre.
