This Victorian cottage once formed part of the original Dormans Park Hotel. The hotel itself was demolished in the 1960’s to create further homes in the park. The property is now presented to an exceptional standard and there is the benefit of gas fired central heating and double glazed windows. Particular features are the 7.8m drawing room with double doors to conservatory, contemporary 7.6m kitchen breakfast room, and principle bedroom with well-proportioned en-suite bathroom. Outside, there are level landscaped gardens, which include a brick driveway, giving access to a double garage, adjacent to the rear of the house.
Planning consent was granted in March 2020 by Tandridge district Council (Ref TA/2020/22) to extend the property. This is an opportunity for a buyer to create a new front elevation in keeping with the original house, thus enlarging the property on the ground and first floor.

Hidden away in a ‘no through’ lane, the house backs directly onto paddocks, enjoying an open aspect to the rear, in this private park. The origins of Dormans Park date back to the 1800s. It originally comprised of over 200 acres of farmland and woodland. Following the arrival of the railway, with London just 28 miles away, it became a peaceful environment in which to live. Today, it offers an interesting variety of houses, both old and new, in tranquil surroundings.
The old market town of East Grinstead is about 2.5 miles away. Dormansland village is just over 1 mile with village store and pretty church, whilst Lingfield is about 2.5 miles offering local shopping facilities, the renowned Racecourse, and the highly regarded Lingfield College, an independent day school. For commuters, Dormans Station can be accessed via a footpath. For the international traveller, Gatwick airport is about 9 miles distant.
