THE PROPERTY

SOLD BY JACKSON-STOPS............. SUBSTANTIAL VICTORIAN HOME OF GREAT CHARM AND CHARACTER IN A SECLUDED AND RURAL SETTING OCCUPYING GROUNDS OF ABOUT 5.5 ACRES..... Betchworth Lodge is an impressive and substantial Victorian family home offering superbly proportioned accommodation and retaining many fine, traditional features that one would expect in a 19th Century house, including high ceilings, panelled doors and traditional windows, and a magnificent staircase rising from a spacious reception hall to an equally impressive first floor landing. Some of the rooms have traditional style fireplaces including a superb fireplace in the drawing room. The accommodation is certainly impressive in terms of its scale and size, but it is also highly adaptable thanks to the annexe which could either be used as semi-independent accommodation, or if so desired, incorporated into the main body of the ground floor accommodation. The current owners have in recent years installed a state of the art kitchen/breakfast room, which has been appointed to a superb standard, enjoying a south westerly orientation, with bi-folding doors, leading directly to the inviting patio. There is also a spacious cellar comprising three rooms. The grounds are a delightful feature of the property, with the formal gardens having a variety of established trees including copper beech, a cedar and a wellingtonia tree. The gardens are laid to lawn with a wide variety of mature shrubs, flowerbeds and borders. There is a covered swimming pool, which has not been used in recent years and would require updating. Further to the south, the equestrian facilities comprise stabling and a tack room, a sand school and a large and small paddock. The equestrian part of the property can be accessed via a separate driveway, which has not been in use for some years leading off Pebblehill Road. There are fine views from the secluded grounds and in all, the plot extends to about 5.5 acres.
