5 bedroom house for sale in 4 Fitzalan Road, Claygate, Esher, KT10
A beautiful example of period architecture from the early part of the 20th century, Gateway House occupies a 0.39 acre mature plot and a private side road location. With the rail station, an excellent choice of good schools close by and all village amenities within a short walk, this is a rare opportunity to secure a 'forever home'. Timbered gables and half tile hung elevations are typical of classiical Surrey architecture of the period and with expansive, elevated views to the rear across open countryside and mainly Crown land.
The accommodation is thoughtfully arranged across two floors and has been enhanced in recent years by the addition of a two storey extension to the South Eastern end of the house. The ground floor accommodation consist of a long but spacious entrance hall, three separate and distinct reception rooms, all with their own charm and facing the garden with character fireplaces featuring in two of them. The real hub of the ground floor is the expansive kitchen / breakfast / family room with bifold doors opening out directly onto the wonderful garden. A study, utility room and cloakroom complete the picture downstairs. Upstairs there is a master suite which comprises bedroom, bathroom and adjacent, interconnecting dressing room or sixth bedroom and a further four double bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which is an en suite shower room to one of the new extension bedrooms.
The house is approached via its own long gravelled driveway which opens out to a wider parking area to the front of the property. The rear garden is a really beautiful and notable feature of this wonderful home with a plot size in all extending to 0.39 acres and enjoying a high degree of seclusion with expansive areas of lawn, split level terracing and an abundance of mature planting and screening. A large timber shed / outbuilding provides adequate space for garden storage or alternatively a useful workshop. EPC D
