A lovely detached family home situated in delightful flat gardens, South West facing to the rear of approximately 1.203 acres backing directly onto St George's Hill Lawn Tennis Club. EPC Rating D.
Markinch is a detached family home, offered for sale with no onward chain. The house is in need of updating in most areas but we feel it offers an incoming purchaser an excellent opportunity to refurbish and possibly enlarge the house, subject to the necessary consents being obtained. Whilst no planning permission has yet been obtained, the current owner has had plans drawn up for a replacement dwelling on the site, we can provide copies of the plans on request.
The property has a lovely welcoming feel with a most elegant lounge, well proportioned dining room and a cosy study which overlooks the front approach. The kitchen/breakfast room was replaced in more recent years and gives direct access through to a very handy family/TV room perfectly situated for more informal living. In addition, there is also a large utility room which in turn gives access through to the double integral garage.
Upstairs, there are five separate bedrooms, with the master bedroom having its own up to date en suite bathroom with a further family bathroom serving the remaining bedrooms.
As mentioned, whilst the house needs updating, it is perfectly liveable and has replacement double glazed windows and the property's location is second to none being so close to the tennis club and in between the Old Avenue and Seven Hills Road exits on the Estate.
St George's Hill is set in approximately 900 acres and features a private championship standard 18 hole golf course, two nine hole courses and a separate private tennis and squash club. The tennis club is one of the foremost racket sports clubs in England, with 30 grass and all weather tennis courts, two indoor courts and four squash courts. The tennis club also has it's own indoor swimming pool and a well-equipped gym, restaurant and bar.
St George's Hill offers an ideal location for families looking for security and private and there are several English and international schools in the area including Reeds, St George's College and the ACS International School in Cobham.
