Property Description:

ACCOMMODATION Set in a beautiful rural position, with stunning views over adjacent countryside, this substantial period home dates back originally to 1755 with extensions made in more recent years. The current owners in particular have taken great care to maintain and enhance the property during their tenure. This charming home blends delightful period features throughout but with a practical and flexible layout internally. On the ground floor are two substantial reception rooms both with wood burning stoves and views over the gardens. At the front of the house there is a good size study and a downstairs shower room. The delightful country style kitchen/diner includes attractive units, dual aspects and a gorgeous Aga. There is also a handy utility/boot room. Over the first and second floors are 5 double bedrooms and three bathrooms, all updated to include good quality fittings.

Externally the property is set back in the plot with a gated access and gravel driveway that sweeps past the house to provide parking in front of the detached double garage. The gardens surround the house with a lovely seating area at the back of the house. Mature trees and hedges flank the borders and the garden is laid predominantly to lawn. Wonderful far reaching views stretch south and east over the local countryside.

LOCATION Outwood village, in addition to its famous windmill, which is the oldest working post-mill in the country, has an attractive Common surrounded by protected National Trust woodland and farmland. There is also a thriving cricket club in an idyllic setting, St. John's Church, a renowned butcher and a choice of two pubs. Everyday shopping needs are catered for at Smallfield a little over a mile distant, with both the larger towns of Oxted, Reigate and Horley within a short drive. Priory Farm is also close by, with a wonderful farm shop providing local produce.

The property is also ideally situated for easy access to Gatwick airport which is about 6 miles distant, whilst Redhill station offers fantastic rail links into London Bridge and Victoria in addition to the south coast. The M25 is accessible at junction 6 just 5 miles away.
