For the most exclusive homes
Longdown Lane South, Epsom, KT17
A rare opportunity to acquire this superb family home situated in a highly desirable location overlooking the fairways of Epsom Golf Course. Shambles is a beautiful and well maintained detached property offering flexible accommodation and huge potential, subject to the usual planning permissions.
The property comprises: entrance hallway through to a spacious lounge extending the full width of the property (33’x13’ approx.), well-proportioned dining room, and kitchen / breakfast room with access to garden. The property also benefits from a downstairs WC and separate utility room. To the first floor there are five double bedrooms, the master with an ensuite shower-room, and a family bathroom. The second bedroom has sufficient scope to create an additional ensuite if required.
The stand-out feature of this home is undoubtedly the office/garage complex, a spacious and flexible space totalling over 800 sq.ft. which is currently arranged as a home office, but offers a host of options including a combination of an office, studio, study or workshop, games room or playroom. Planning consent was previously obtained to add a first-floor space to create a gym and “granny” annexe and whilst lapsed it may be possible to re-apply STPP as precedent has been set from nearby homes in the area.
The garden is divided in to two distinct sections: an expansive patio area perfect for entertaining, and a lawned area surrounded with mature shrubs, plants and trees in a Mediterranean style.
Shambles is opposite the 18th fairway of Epsom Golf Course, a private members club. Situated close to Epsom Downs, home of the famous Derby festival with spectacular views of the City of London, and Epsom town centre. Epsom Downs railway station (Zone 6) is within walking distance with excellent access into Central London, and Canary Wharf just over an hour away. The town itself offers a range of retail outlets, including the Ashley shopping centre, Waitrose, M & S, cafe-bars and restaurants, and close to both Ashtead and Ewell Village offering a number of independent shops. Situated in College Ward, the property is within the catchment area of several “outstanding” State schools. There is an excellent choice of schools for all age groups with renowned independent Epsom College and City of London Freemans School in close reach. Various sports and health clubs are at hand including the private members RAC Country Club and championship golf courses including Walton Heath. Junctions 8 and 9 of the M25 gives access to both Heathrow and Gatwick international airports.
This family home would suit a number of incoming purchasers, but we believe the ideal buyers would be a family looking for a long term move out of the City, attracted by the lifestyle associated with a semi-rural location but still offering good transport links to London. The excellent local state and private schools offer a high standard of education and there are a host of fantastic leisure facilities right on your doorstep.
