5 bedroom house for sale in Foley Road, Claygate, KT10
A beautiful Victorian property, being very much a 'generational' home and in the same family ownership for the last 30 years. An elegant and consequentially, very rarely available village home of the period. This remarkable property has retained a wealth of original character throughout, together with ample additional scope to reconfigure or enlarge aspects of the existing footprint.
This wonderful period property occupies an ultra-convenient position on one of Claygate's most peaceful, wide and leafy side roads and just minutes on foot from the station and village centre whilst also benefiting from direct and swift walking access to open countryside, including Arbrook, Esher and Claygate Commons.
The accommodation is exceptionally generous and is arranged across three floors. With homes of this nature being effectively 'generational' due to their scale, they also benefit from an easy versatility in terms of being highly adaptable to changing living arrangements. On the ground floor, the two principal reception rooms and front study are accessed via the impressive entrance hall with an enclosed vestibule to the front of the property. A rear inner hall leads to a large, traditional kitchen / breakfast room with views over the garden and an expansive utility room cloakroom / WC. Additionally, the sub-ground floor cellar is also accessible from the rear hall. On the first floor there is a choice of three substantial double bedrooms and two full bathrooms with principal en suite. The second floor provides two further generous double bedrooms, the larger of which is currently deployed as a versatile 'cinema room' with cloakroom / wc also on this floor. Much scope remains on this floor particularly to reconfigure the bedroom and bathroom arrangements.
Sitting in an overall plot of 0.22 acres, the rear garden is a glorious and clear attribute and just one of the impressive features of this beautiful home. Extending to 116 feet x 50 feet to the rear with the much-prized, Westerly orientation, the garden is extensively laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees and planted beds and borders.
