A charming late 16th Century Grade II listed cottage with a superb green oak framed Smallbone kitchen extension and panoramic views over the Wintershall Estate.
Keepers was constructed in the early 16th Century with later editions in the 17th Century and again in 2015. With three framed bays and white wash infill, this classic looking Surrey cottage is in superb order throughout.
The private gravelled driveway passes through a gated entrance and leads to extensive gravelled parking. A Tudor style arched oak door opens to an attractive hallway with limestone tiled floors with underfloor heating. The drawing room is centred by an inglenook fireplace, dual aspect windows and cottage doors to the terrace and gardens. An inner hallway links to the family room again with a large inglenook fireplace, southerly aspect windows with views and an attractive study area with bespoke joinery, cabinets, and workspace.
The recent kitchen extension is an absolute triumph, with large windows on two sides giving an unobstructed view over the pond and farmland beyond. Framed by stunning green oak with a vaulted ceiling the room is filled with light. The bespoke kitchen is designed by Smallbone of Devises, with a large central island with lit display shelves below, storage and inset five plate Wolf halogen hob. A four oven Aga with electric hotplate and fitted Wolf electric oven is beautifully fitted with a clever triangular window overlooking the old bread oven behind. A full range of units are complemented with leathered effect granite worksurfaces. A Bang and Olufsen media system is included with the property. Limestone floors with underfloor heating create an even temperature throughout.
The first-floor bedrooms all lead from the upper landing which is split level with access to the loft and high vaulted ceiling. The Master bedroom is charming with a high vaulted ceiling and cottage windows offers views over farmland. A full luxury bathroom suite with standalone shower services this bedroom along with a separate walk in dressing room. Up some steps along the landing you will find two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. All offer charm and characterful details with exposed beams and built in wardrobes. All enjoy views to the South & West over the gardens.
The gardens and grounds have been painstakingly managed with boundaries screened by mature trees, laurels, and evergreen hedging. The garden is split into two sections. The first is lawned, leading to a large pond with attractive planting. The rear boundary is formed from a ha-ha wall, giving an unobstructed view over the adjoining parkland/ farmland. Past the terrace up the York stone steps the second garden area can be found, walled on two sides and planted with an array of mature shrubs and herbaceous borders, with another ha- ha boundary to the South.
Please be advised planning permission has been granted to build a new detached house in the grounds of Keepers thus sub-dividing the original two-acre plot. Part of the permission requires the removal of an old 1960s detached annex, the client will install landscaping to improve and screen the site. WA/2017/2289
