Chichester Close, Dorking
This fabulous five-bedroom detached family home is in a highly desirable private residential road located within a 5-minute walk of the Ashcombe School, mainline stations and High Street and a 10-minute drive to the outstanding St. Andrews School.
This charming late 1920s detached family home is approached via a no through private road gravel driveway with ample off-road parking. An enclosed glazed entrance porch gives way to a newly refurbished bright, light, and spacious entrance hallway. Newly fitted oak effect flooring runs throughout the whole downstairs.
Double glazed internal doors lead through to a reconfigured drawing room. Dual aspect windows and French doors to the garden flood this broad room with light. A central fireplace and open hearth provide a focal point for the room.
The kitchen/dining/family room is a newly constructed area and has created a real hub for the home, with muted tones, shaker style units and central island giving a country chic feel. For the avid chef, newly fitted double ovens, fitted microwave, fitted fridge freezer and ample preparation areas will suit events of all sizes. The kitchen area opens out to a dining space and seating area in front of a large inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. Large double doors lead out to the south facing garden terrace.
An inner hallway leading from the kitchen gives access to a newly fitted utility/prep kitchen, family room, rear lobby, and the integral garage. The garage (currently used as gym) has a substantial storage area in the roof space. The large car port includes an electrical car charging point.
The first floor is equally impressive featuring a sumptuous main bedroom suite with an en suite shower room, four further large bedrooms and family bathroom.
Lyncroft has superb gardens that wrap around the house. With a predominantly southerly aspect, this lovely lawn garden is edged with mature trees, hedgerows, and well planted flower bed boarders. A secondary, secret garden contains mature fruit trees enclosed by high yew and conifer hedging. This area has been laid out to create a scented rose garden and hosts two timber outbuildings.
Chichester Close sits in an enviable position just a short walk to the Ashcombe School, mainline station with direct services to Waterloo, Victoria, or London Bridge. The top-rated St. Andrews School is a 10-minute drive. Aside from the excellent schools and transport services, Dorking has much to offer. Surrounded by the Surrey Hills, it is a mecca for the outdoor enthusiast or perhaps a visit to Denbies Wine Estate that not only offers you tours of their extensive vineyards but a restaurant too.
