If it's a room - or several - with a view you hanker after, come take a look around Amberley a stunning five-bedder in the village of Woldingham. But can you guess the price?
Like perving at properties? Us too! And and we’ve stumbled upon a corker with this one – a stunning house with views that stretch for miles.
Let’s take a look around – I’ll drop some hints, you tap some walls and peek into cupboards, then guess the price in the comments below. Ready?
Okay, first thing to tell you is that this 100-year-old home is found on an exclusive private road in the heart of Woldingham Village. The village itself is quintessentially English and lies atop the North Downs with a village store, a village green and plenty of leisure clubs and societies including an am-dram club, golf, cricket and tennis clubs. There’s also a village primary school.
Amberley is in secluded grounds of just under an acre. The private pebbled driveway leads to the house, which is screened from the road by tall hedging and trees.
What’s behind the red door? I’m glad you asked! The house has been cleverly laid out to make the most of the stunning views – and almost every room is one with a view.
Immediately inside there’s a porch and handy coat room – through there and you go can go left into the drawing room which leads to the orangery or straight ahead into the dining room. The rooms are big, light and bright – and feature some lovely original features. Just look at that door!
At the other end of the house is a big open plan kitchen which flows through to a family room. And as you’d expect there are doors galore which frame the view beautifully and open out to a terrace.
Downstairs there’s also a separate utility room, a cloakroom plus another boot room.
Upstairs and there are five bedrooms. The master bedroom suite includes an ensuite bathroom and dressing room and has great views.
Two of the other bedrooms also come with views, and the guest suite also has an ensuite bathroom. The fourth and fifth bedrooms are interconnecting – which would make a great teenager’s or granny’s retreat. There’s also a family bathroom on the first floor.
Outside, the west-facing grounds are quite something with views out over the greenbelt countryside. There garden has been terraced and leads down to a large lawn – believed to be the original tennis lawn – and from there sloping down to the orchard. Beyond that is a wildflower meadow where log seats surround a camp fire area.
Right then, what else would you like to know? Train links to London are pretty good – Woldingham Station is under a mile away and there are direct services to London Bridge (33 mins) and London Victoria (37 mins). Schools wise, the village primary school is popular, and there are also excellent independent options – Caterham School, an impressive co-ed senior school with Caterham Prep right next door; Hazelwood a co-ed prep school in nearby Limpsfield, and Woldingham School, a Catholic senior girls school set on a stunning site.
