A beautiful five bedroom semi-detached family home on a generous plot in excellent condition throughout located on a highly desirable cul-de-sac in Long Ditton.
Long Ditton village originated from the development of the land owned by four houses, one of which was Chalcott House, surrounded by its own orchard. Chalcott Gardens is built on the site of the original house.
The property comprises; porchway entrance leading to hallway, from which leads a generous reception room measuring 21’5×16’2, leading to a formal dining area and a lovely conservatory looking out over the garden. There is also a downstairs WC. One of the key features of this home is the kitchen/breakfast room with a bespoke hand-built kitchen and breakfast bar which extends throughout the full length of the house offering plenty of storage; a perfect place to relax and entertain. There is also the additional benefit of bi-fold doors, which open out on to the garden. The vendors comment:
“We spend a lot of time in the kitchen. As it’s double aspect you get to know people walking locally and keep an eye on the children in the garden!”
To the first floor there are four bedrooms and an additional room, currently used as a dressing room, which could easily be used as a fifth bedroom. The master bedroom, dressing room and shower room are grouped together on one side of the house for additional privacy.
The remaining three bedrooms are all generously proportioned, the second bedroom is a particularly generous double with built in storage. These are serviced by an immaculate family bathroom with large bath and twin sinks.
The garden extends to approximately 80ft and as the property is situated on a corner plot is unusually wide at approximately 60ft. Open yet secluded, the garden is mainly laid to lawn with raised beds, two patio areas for entertaining, mature shrubbery surrounding to provide extra privacy and two storage sheds. The vendors added:
“The patio at the end is a real sun trap; secluded and sunny. We use the back room as a study so it’s lovely to work whilst looking over the garden”.
Further benefits include a block paved front drive with off street parking for two cars and a log burner in the sitting room for cosy winter nights. The property has also been recently re-decorated throughout.
This is a rare opportunity to purchase a much loved family home in a quiet location and would be perfect for a family who is both attracted to the size and flexible living accommodation and the enviable location close to Long Ditton and Hinchley Wood Schools. In addition the property would be well suited to buyers moving to the area for the first time, possibly from South West London, looking for a spacious family home.
