Edwardian house with extensive accommodation overlooking the village green

Dating from the early 20th century, The Old Bakery is one of several attractive historic houses that contribute to a picturesque village centre, with its shop-front architecture reflecting its origins. With a blend of vintage charm and modern comfort, period features include sash windows, high-ceilinged rooms with cornicing, picture rails and ornamental fireplaces. The property has been renovated and maintained by the present owners with a commitment to high quality workmanship and materials throughout. There is chequered tiling and a stately handbuilt staircase in the generous reception hall where the double-height ceiling affords glimpses of the galleried landing above. Steps lead down into the bright, elegant drawing room with two box-bay windows and views over the village green, whilst the adjoining formal dining room features a canted bay window. Fitted with farmhouse-style cabinetry, the spacious kitchen has a red 4-oven Aga at its heart and offers plenty of space for informal dining, with a door leading to the light-filled conservatory, which in turn links to the study. The house is wellinsulated; most of the ground floor windows are double-glazed in timber frames and there is high quality secondary glazing at first floor level. The first floor offers five bedrooms including the principal bedroom with a dressing room and luxurious en suite bathroom. Further accommodation is available to the rear and above the garage, with a lower-level studio and upper-level office, sitting area and bathroom.

Two timber, five-bar gates mark the access to a driveway at the side of the house, which extends to the garage and provides hardstanding for parking. With a woodland backdrop, the rear garden has a series of raised beds filled with established shrubs. Steps provide access to an expanse of lawn surrounded by a curved bank planted with architectural, colourful and scented shrubs with year round interest. At the top of the garden, a private gate provides access to the Hurtwood and a further lawn affords elevated and far-reaching views to the parish church and the Surrey Hills.

This property has 0.31 acres of land.
