A significant portion of a Victorian country house, Smallburgh was altered in the early 20th Century and again in the 1970s. This part of the property was utilised as the staff accommodation utilities and still retains much of the character and details of the period with generous room sizes and high ceilings.
The main accommodation is arranged over three floors but there is significant additional potential within the vast basement area to provide further accommodation for a number of uses. This highly versatile area features a large open room, a study, workshop and a smaller storage area and already has high ceilings, lighting, power and heating.
The entrance is through a lobby into the hall to a wonderful drawing room with working fireplace and views out to the garden. Across the corridor is the kitchen/ breakfast room which has an AGA and access through the utility room to a w/c as well as opening onto the enclosed rear courtyard. On the first floor are 3 large double bedrooms, a beautiful family bathroom with lovely period fittings and a further contemporary shower room. The second floor offers flexibility and is currently configured as two good sized bedrooms, the larger with fitted storage.
Externally the main garden is to the front of the house, is both private and a good size with a southerly aspect. There is a patio at the front of the property from which the lawn sweeps forward with a variety of variety of trees and shrubs. There is as a driveway providing parking for several cars as well as a detached double garage and workshop.
Located 5 miles to the south of Dorking the property has the benefit of local amenities at nearby Beare Green, under one mile away, which include local shops and mainline rail (Holmwood) connection into Dorking and London. Bus routes also regularly serve the area. Dorking is a pretty Market Town with a vibrant high street, plenty of independent shops and restaurants and a large Waitrose amongst other supermarkets. Schools in the area are excellent with state and private options for all ages. There is an excellent medical practise close by. The area is in the heart of the Surrey countryside and therefore benefits from many lovely walks, many easily accessed directly from the house.
