Remarkable, unique and intriguing both inside and out, this two double bedroom home was originally one part of a school hall. During its conversion to a residential dwelling a number of links to its ecclesiastical past have also been reflected, which begins at the lych gate as you enter this domain.
A lovely arched oak door leads to an entrance lobby with timber vaulted ceiling. A further solid oak door leads to the living accommodation. The open plan L-shaped lounge/dining room features a limestone surround fireplace with inset coal/log burner. The living room has oak flooring whilst the dining room/study area has large ceramic tiles to create contrast. The ceiling in this part of the room is delightful being of vaulted timber. In the lounge area the ceiling is is high and attractively corniced. The kitchen is fitted out in a farmhouse style in a range of light wood eye and base level units and a brick surround chimney breast with inset twin oven Aga-style gas range cooker. Belfast sink, built-in fridge, cupboard that would house a mini-dishwasher and granite worksurfaces with window overlooking the gardens behind. The ceiling here is also a wonderful feature, beamed with hanging hooks and again vaulted with attractive circular coloured window. Double doors open from the kitchen in to a wonderful Amdega conservatory/orangery with ceramic tiled flooring, radiator, air conditioning unit, high glazed ceiling with pull down blinds to the south-facing side and attractive ecclesiastical style cornicing. Double glazed twin doors open on to the patio.
The master bedroom can be reached via an inner lobby or twin double glazed doors that lead in to the conservatory. The bedroom is an attractive double room with lovely cornicing. The second bedroom could also accommodate a double bed and has a range of quality fitted wardrobes to one wall. Twin front arched windows with shutters face the front. The bathroom is fitted with a four piece suite including bath tub with mixer tap and hand held shower attachment and separate shower cubicle.
The property is approached via a classic churchyard-style lych gate on to a cobble-stone paved driveway with comfortable parking for two cars. Twin lockable wrought iron side gates lead to the rear garden. The garden feels as though its been created in an Italianate style, extremely pretty and mainly hard-landscaped for ease of maintenance. A raised and attractive central fountain surrounded by ornate wrought iron railings provides an ideal centrepiece. To both borders are lovely raised flower and shrub beds and intriguingly a timber door at the rear leads not to a secret garden but a garden shed! There are ideal timber storage areas logs for the burner. There is the most wonderful covered area, partly glazed which is perfect for sitting out when the weather isn't perfect but still warm enough. Finally there is what could be a garage but is currently a home for the hot tub! This is also a utility area with space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer.
All in all a completely unique home that must not be missed.
Literally just around the corner from Ottershaw village that enjoys a range of local shops which cater for everyday needs, including a post office/mini supermarket, a One-Stop supermarket, 2 takeaways, a pub, a Miller and Carter steak restaurant and a social club. The village enjoys a real spirit of community about it.
More comprehensive facilities can be found a little further afield in Addlestone and Chertsey whilst the larger towns of Woking, West Byfleet and Weybridge are a short drive, both offering main line access to London (Waterloo), as do nearby West Byfleet and Byfleet and New Haw station. Road connections in the area are excellent with Junction 11 of the M25 being a few minutes drive allowing easy access to Heathrow and Gatwick airports and central London. Good schools are also prevalent in this area including the very well regarded Ottershaw Infants and Junior schools.
