Property flirt

Petticoats on show, here we go. Come ogle this Oxted abode - it ticks all the boxes for ideal family living. Follow me, I've got the keys...

Orchard House is stunner for those of you who like to perv at property. Guess within £5k of the asking price and get your stamp duty discounted on your next house purchase. Yes *cough*, really!

OK, you ready to roll?

This one’s a corker – a five-bedder with four reception rooms that’s saying loud and clear “if you want to throw a party, I’m your house!” It’s in Uvedale Road in Oxted, just a 10 minute walk from Oxted station and the town centre.

The house is set over two floors with an entry foyer, kitchen, dining room, drawing room, mahoosive sitting room, study, utility and cloakroom on the ground floor. It’s a well designed home, with big double doors leading from the sitting room to the drawing room, and then into the kitchen. But let’s talk about the sitting room – a gloriously big room with windows and French doors facing out on three sides, and a feature fireplace.

The kitchen is another big space, and with a big range cooker, butler sink, stone tile flooring and rustic pine cabinets it has a lovely homely feel.

Upstairs, there are five bedrooms, including a master suite with ensuite bathroom and separate dressing room, and a family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have their own shower rooms. *SIGH* I’m beginning to think maybe I should move in here – Mr Muds has always fancied Oxted, I dream about having a walk-in dressing room, and my kids would love to have their own ensuite bathrooms.

And the outside is just as lovely with mature gardens and established borders, fruit trees and a large terrace area for al fresco entertaining. Perfecto!

Out the front, a wide driveway leads in through electric cast iron gates to a detached double garage with remote control doors. The garage has a mezzanine level, which is currently used for storage, but screams “home gym” to me.

Right then, that’s enough from me. Have a ponder, decide what the property is worth, let us know in the comments below, then see if you are right.
