Property Flirt

Look at the handsome face of this 1920s five-bedder in Oxted! Niiiice. Wanna guess the price?!

Please smile coquettishly and/or doff your hat at this traditional 1920s house in central Oxted with established beautiful gardens and some lovely period features.

If ever there was a case of location, location, location – this is it. But don’t take my word for it! Play the game and guess the price – no cheatypoos – wait until the end. Eye away from the keyhole – we’re going in!


So what we have here – in addition to five bedrooms and a stunning established garden is – (deep breath) a big town-centre house with a sitting room, family room, dining room and a kitchen / breakfast room, plus a separate utility.

It’s all high ceilings, space and charm – with some bold statement touches. Here, take a peek.

Check out that red room. And the wine collection – sorry, I’m pretty sure that will go when the current owners move out! I’m also quite partial to the unusual parquet flooring though, and that’s definitely not going anywhere. What do you think?

The dining room looks out onto the gardens, and next door, the sitting room features French doors which open straight out onto the gardens.

And the kitchen – see oodles of space and rather stylish oak kitchen cabinets. Next door to the kitchen is a very useful utility room fitted with wall and floor cabinets. There’s also useful side door access.

Upstairs, you’ll find five double bedrooms, including a master suite with built in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom, plus a family bathroom.

But in my book, the real star of the show is the garden. It’s set on just over a quarter of an acre of land and is a mix of mature trees and shrubs and well-maintained lawn.

But how much? Well here’s a clue, if you don’t know Oxted, it’s one of those real gems – a pretty town with plenty to offer: restaurants, shopping, and a fabulous Everyman Cinema. It’s also wonderfully well situated – close enough to London to make a daily commute not too much of a headache (trains go direct to London Bridge and London Victoria from Oxted station), but also just five minutes from the Surrey and Kent countryside.

So, fellow nosey parkers – how much do you think it’s on for then? Find out here, while I adjourn to a sun-lounger and supervise my new crack team of gardeners.
