5 bedroom house for sale in 8 Oaken Lane, Claygate, KT10
An appealing, detached Victorian home with later additions and situated in an ideal position between the old village and the main village centre and rail station. Victorian architecture on this scale is comparatively rare in the village with homes of this nature coming to the market only very infrequently; the current owners have been in residence for some thirteen years.. Standing at just over 3,000 square feet overall, the accommodation within the original part of the house was supplemented many years ago by a substantial annexe / side extension, offering the next owners immense potential to use as partly self-contained accommodation for perhaps an au pair or maybe elderly family member(s). In our view, it's also likely that other buyers may wish to substantially update and reconfigure the overall footprint to result in a more usual, contemporary layout.
The principle existing accommodation in the original part of the house is characterised by generous ceiling heights and period features with the ground floor comprising of an entrance hall, two interconnecting reception rooms,, one with large bay window, a separate fitted kitchen and large utility room to rear with direct access to the garden. The kitchen also facilitates access through to the ground floor of the annexe via an inner hall to a large reception room, study (with side external access), dining room, bathroom and additional WC. Upstairs on the first floor of the original house there is the choice of four bedrooms (three of which are doubles) and two shower rooms, one of which is en suite. The second floor offers a really expansive fifth bedroom, again with its own en suite shower room. The accommodation within the first floor of the annexe is accessed from the first floor landing of the main house and consists of a double bedroom, cloakroom / WC, and a study / kitchenette with access to the front balcony.
Ample parking is catered for by way of a gravelled driveway with long, integral garage. One further really notable feature of this property is the rear garden which is really quite generous, extending to 96 feet x 61 feet with an expanse of lawn, mature planting, a large timber outbuilding and adjacent storage shed.
