Tudor Croft offers the rare opportunity to purchase a family home surrounded by approximately 4.5 acres of private land with the potential to modernise or extend (subject to the necessary planning consents). Built circa 1925, the house is now in need of refurbishment. The current owners; who have lived here since 1975, are now looking to downsize.
The property is approached by a private driveway off Shepherds Walk. There is a second entrance not used currently which is accessed off Farm Lane - this is the access point currently used for the delivery of oil for the oil fired boiler.
Internally there are three reception rooms, each very different to the other but all offering views of the grounds. There is also a study/snug, a kitchen/breakfast room, a utility room and a cloakroom. The triple aspect living room is currently the hub of the home with a fabulous inglenook fireplace and a herringbone floor currently covered by carpet. From the spacious hallway a turning staircase provides access to the first floor accommodation. The principal bedroom enjoys a double aspect, views over the garden and an en suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms which are served by a family bathroom, a separate wc and a further room accessed from bedroom four which could be used as a fifth bedroom, dressing room or home office.
Outside the grounds are mostly laid to lawn with areas of woodland and include an old air raid shelter which has been used successfully as a wine cellar with good temperature control and a number of outbuildings where the garage used to be. There is also a bridleway which runs through the woods to the front of the plot.
The property is addressed as Farm Lane but is accessed from Shepherds Walk. The property offers convenient access to the M25 motorway for both Heathrow and Gatwick airports whilst Epsom is about 10 mins away with Epsom station offering direct routes to London Waterloo, Victoria and London Bridge.
