Limpsfield is my latest geographical crush this handsome cottage just on the outskirts has caught my eye. Let's take a look around.
Have you been to Limpsfield lately? It’s my new geographical fancy. Mr Muds and I took the pooches to Limpsfield Chart last weekend for a long walk through some pretty stunning countryside and woods. And since then I’ve been crushing big-time on this lovely part of the world on the Surrey / Kent borders, near Oxted.
It seemed only fitting to follow through with my fantasy, and find us somewhere to live. So, ladies and gents, allow me to present Home Place Cottage, a six-bedroom property located on Wolf’s Hill just outside Limpsfield.
Come on, let’s look around. And then see if you can guess what it’s worth.
Home Place Cottage is found tucked away at the end of a long driveway in a delightfully secluded spot surrounded by beautiful gardens. It’s a biggie – set over three floors – with a wonderful mix of period features and modern luxuries.
An oak front door leads you straight into an orangery style entry room with a glass roof, keep walking and you’ll find yourself in the large dining room, The drawing room is off to the right and the kitchen / breakfast room is to your left. Beautiful oak flooring runs through both rooms, as well as a natural oak ceiling beam. I’m also loving the Minster style stone fireplace in the drawing room.
The drawing room is a beautifully light and bright space, with windows on two sides and these gorgeous French doors leading out to the terrace. It’s a house that has entertaining written all over – not literally (obvs!) – with each room flowing into the next.
The kitchen / breakfast room leads through to a conservatory – and all of these downstairs rooms look out onto the well-established gardens.
Upstairs, the main bedroom suite includes built-in wardrobes and a luxury ensuite shower room – all with wonderful views out over the gardens. At the other end of the landing is the guest bedroom suite, with an ensuite bathroom. there’s also two other bedrooms and a family bathroom on this floor. A turning staircase leads up to the second floor where there are two more bedrooms.
Outside, there’s also plenty of space. The driveway leads around to a detached double garage, attached to which is a separate studio or garden office space. And tucked away behind the garage is a timber chalet which is currently used as a games room, but could easily be converted into any number of uses. Home gym anyone?
I’ve mentioned the seclusion of this property, but I’ll hammer it home. High hedged boundaries and a garden that’s full of mature shrubs and trees really does create a private oasis. Oh, and check out that striped lawn – you could play cricket for England on that!
So, do you need any further clues to guess the price? How about the fact it’s just an 8 minute walk to Hurst Green train station, which has links to London. Or that it’s only minutes away from the M25. Oh, and Limpsfield itself – my latest crush – home to one of my favourite pubs The Bull Inn as well as a great range of speciality shops including an art gallery.
