8 bedroom house for sale in Woodlands Lane, Cobham, KT11
A rare opportunity to buy an impressive Victorian family home, with grounds totalling 6.5 acres, on the outskirts of Cobham.
Originally built in 1895, now with an impressive history, Old Parks has been extensively refurbished and extended by our clients in recent years. The property has been taken right back to the original brickwork throughout and the refurbishment has carefully and sympathetically been completed to include many character features as well as being completely replumbed and rewired to bring the property in line and even beyond normal modern standards. As an example of the detail and efforts taken, moulds were created of the original cornice’s and replacements made and installed. Similar efforts were made with all of the replacement carpentry.
The property is set well back from Woodlands Lane with a large frontage providing plenty of parking. Through the large double front doors the reception hall provides an impressive welcome, with a gallery over the stairs bringing light and warmth. From here there is access to an office at the front and a large drawing room with aspects to the side and rear. Further along the hallway provides access to the enormous kitchen, family dining room, the main hub of the home. The kitchen has been created for master cooks and entertaining, with two huge islands providing no shortage of worktop space and storage. There is a large pantry which leads through to the boot room and then out to the garden. Further accommodation on the ground floor includes a large family room, a second office, cinema room, laundry room, guest cloakroom and second w.c.
Upstairs the bright and spacious feeling continues along with the epic ceiling heights and abundance of warm character features. The master bedroom is a generous size and enjoys dual aspects with views over the ground and beyond, there is a huge ensuite bathroom and dressing room. Three further bedrooms and two bathrooms complete this floor in the main part of the house. There is access from the landing to the annexe which also benefits from independent access from outside. This is effectively a one bedroom apartment with bathroom, kitchen and large reception room. To the top floor there are three further bedrooms and a bathroom.
A considerable feature of Old Parks are its impressive grounds. Extending to 6.5 acres and including River Mole frontage, this is a rare and special opportunity in Cobham. There is a large swimming pool with adjacent studio and a disused tennis court which could be reinstated as required. The gardens extend around both sides of the house and fan out to the rear affording additional privacy. To the front there is a deep frontage from the land and access to the integral double garage.
Cobham and Stoke d’Abernon train station is just one mile away and Cobham Village centre with a great range of boutiques and restaurants only two miles. Fantastic schooling options and a wide range of transport links within easy reach are almost always firmly on the agenda of people looking in this beautiful area.
