A charming period family home with immense appeal and presence, situated in a sought after road in West Horsley, providing many of the important tick boxes sought by buyers today in terms of its proximity to the station and local amenities and the popular local primary school.
Impeccably maintained throughout by the current owners, the front elevation boasts herringbone brick-panelled gables which contrast nicely with the smart white render and the clay tiled roof with 'Surrey' bonnets. Equally in evidence, are the numerous contemporary items including a Tesla EV car charge point, Google/Nest heating control and a doorbell with day/night camera and 2 way comms, burglar alarm and water softener.
A pretty covered porch entwined with a vine sets the scene and leads you into the welcoming interior through an oak front door. Well proportioned reception rooms with an abundance of natural light lead from the hallway, all beautifully presented and providing modern comfort while keeping their traditional features. The extended sitting room on the rear is a generous size with a wonderful feature open fireplace, fitted bookcase shelving and extensive views across the garden. The dining room on the front of the house benefits from a lovely large bay window and cassette log burner. The study also has fitted oak bookcases, desk and filing cabinet. The kitchen/breakfast room is an original Paula Rosa with granite worktops and built in high-end appliances. From here, a traditional conservatory, tiled with under floor heating, and reflective glass roof to prevent overheating, provides additional living space and wide views over the spectacular garden.
On the first floor, the bedrooms are served by a long central landing. All the bedrooms are doubles, and enjoy lovely views across the gardens. The master bedroom has a feature bay window over looking the front garden with a spacious, recently upgraded, en-suite bathroom. The family bathroom has also been redone in recent years with Villeroy & Boch fittings and under floor heating. Both bathrooms have separate baths and showers.
The Gables is a fine example of a traditional village home and will continue to give years of pleasure and delight to its new lucky occupants!
