Property Flirt: Oxted

Take a peek inside this brand spanking new beauty sitting at the foot of the North Downs in Oxted, and see if you can guess the price tag

Well this is a first! A Property Flirt that’s so brand spanking new, there dust has barely settled. This new beauty is in Oxted – a town that is proving to be catnip for commuters and parents looking for good schools. Bear that in mind when we play our little game of guess the price, and the reader within £5k of the asking price gets to play ‘builders and housewives’ with Nick Knowles.

OK, let’s be having some views and clues.

What you’re looking at here is a four-bedroom, three -bathroom, four-reception room detached property with oodles of space. Called The Bletchingley, it’s is one of three houses on an exclusive new development by Devine Homes at the foot of the North Downs.

From the front door, you’ll enter into a large reception hall which leads into the kitchen, family, sitting and dining rooom, and featuring a timber staircase taking you upstairs.

The kitchen is beautifully styled, with a island unit and a range of integrated Siemens appliances, including a large wine fridge. Open the champers will you love, I feel like celebrating.

Thanks to a wall of bi-fold doors leading from the kitchen/breakfast room to a paved terrace, there’s plenty of natural light. From the kitchen, there is also access to the utility room and then onto the garage. I love these kinds of practical touches you get in new houses.


Upstairs, is the master suite with plenty of built-in robes and a luxury ensuite bathroom.

There are three more bedrooms up here, one with its en suite bathroom, as well as a family bathroom. Fancy a piddle? No problem, like everything else, the bathrooms are brand new!

Outside there’s a decent sized garden – big enough to mow, not so large you’ll be spending your free time on the ride-on.

There’s not much more you need to know, except that your in prime commuter territory here, with direct train services into London and the M25 just a few miles away.  So guess the price here, see how close you get here, and if we’re talking about the right ballpark figure for your budget, go see it for yourself. Don’t worry, there’ll be plenty of time afterwards to slip into your slinky builder’s high vis vest and tool belt.
