6 bedroom house for sale in Milbourne Lane, Esher, KT10
A handsome and imposing double fronted detached Edwardian home offering an increasingly scarce opportunity to fully refurbish and re-configure to create and blend the very best of contemporary living and period character. 'Sydenham' (a name that originates from another family home in Southern Ireland) dates from the early 1900's and was at one point in the 1960's subdivided into a pair of large flats before its later usage as a family home and Doctors surgery. The existing accommodation is typical of the period and offers generous ceiling heights, gracious room sizes, many original sash windows and plaster cornicing. On the ground floor, a long entrance hall gives way to a choice of four reception rooms, a kitchen / breakfast room overlooking the garden with the dining room also offering direct access, a utility room and cloakroom / WC. An elegant, turning staircase with half landing leads up to the first floor with the landing again, providing unusually generous circulation space. On the first floor is the choice of 5 bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate WC. The second floor comprises the large original attic room which could readily lend itself to a number of uses, depending of course on the new owner's needs. Externally, there is ample parking catered for courtesy of a front forecourt area and detached double garage to rear. 'Sydenham' occupies a 0.2 acre overall plot with the rear garden extending in all to 97 feet x 51 feet. Lying broadly equidistant between Claygate village and central Esher, 'Sydenham' offers a great balance in terms of location with many excellent state and independent schools close by, rail services into London Waterloo from Claygate or Esher and the choice of an excellent range of independent shops and businesses in Claygate village or a much more extensive array of independent shops, restaurants, cafés, a Waitrose supermarket and cinema in Esher.
