Holmbury St. Mary, Dorking
A fully refurbished and extended three-bedroom semi-detached period village home with a fabulous kitchen/dining room, landscaped and level garden and off-street parking.
Corner House was once a workers cottage on the Feldeman Estate which was owned by the Waterhouse family of Price, Waterhouse, Cooper fame.
Over time the estate was broken up and many of the estate cottages became privately owned and Corner House had been lived in by the same family from the times of it being part of this famous old estate.
Since his ownership, our client has undertaken a significant refurbishment program to create this charming home.
The entrance porch provides a clever enclosed space which can be used as a boot room or, if preferred, somewhere to sit and enjoy the west facing sunshine whilst keeping warm and dry.
A small hallway gives way to the main sitting room with a wood burning, stove and decorative cabinetry.
Leading from this room you enter the hub of the home a bespoke kitchen with shaker style cabinets, butchers block work surfaces and a central island with a light stone worktop providing ample space and preparation areas. There is a built in Rangemaster stove, dishwasher and American style fridge freezer.
The dining area has been cleverly extended with a glassed roof flooding the room with light and dual aspect windows and doors looking out to the garden helping to create an inside outside feeling.
Further along you will find a separate reception room with French doors leading to the lawn garden.
The utility room has a newly installed Grant oil fired combi boiler for the central heating and hot water. A stable door also leads to the garden.
For those wishing to hose the dog down after a walk or perhaps if you are a keen mountain biker, the hot and cold-water point will be invaluable!
The first-floor accommodation is equally impressive with three good sized bedrooms and a stunning family bathroom.
The bathroom has been carefully planned to host not only a standalone roll top bathtub but also a separate shower cubicle, both with Victorian style fittings. A standalone vanity unit with storage further complements this luxury bathroom. The emerald-green wall tile and muted tone floor tiles are worthy of note as they were purchased from Mandarin Stone.
The gardens have been worked on meticulously creating a level lawn garden which is edged by well stocked flower bed borders.
A good-sized terrace runs around the back of the house and along the side and has a stunning water feature.
Many of the trees and beds are illuminated with outside lighting.
Towards the end of the garden is gate leading to a private gravelled driveway and space for a garage (subject to the usual consents).
