Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity to purchase an iconic Victorian property, Old Tiles is a magnificent villa with Gothic detailing, situated on a very desirable road leading to the Nower and the Surrey Hills. The property further benefits from well-presented interiors, private parking, a garage and a delightful rear garden.

This uniquely appointed property is most striking for its tile-hung front elevations and is believed to have been constructed in 1874. While having been extensively modernised, the property retains much of its period splendour, including sash windows, high ceilings, cornicing and original open fireplaces. Internally the house is bright and spacious, extending to 3339 sq ft, and enjoys rooms of generous proportions well suited to family life and entertaining arranged over four spacious floors.

The main accommodation is accessed from the elevated first floor, and comprises a bay-fronted sitting room, office and lovely fitted kitchen accessed from an inviting entrance hall. The kitchen is a particular highlight, fitted with locally handmade 'Thyme for Kitchens' units and an impressive range cooker, with space for a dining table creating a wonderful room where all the family can gather.

The bedrooms are arranged over the second and third floors, including a fabulous principal suite comprising a bedroom, its own private glazed conservatory, a dressing room and an en suite shower room. There are a further four bedrooms, plus a shower room, family bathroom and separate w.c.

There is also a utility room on the ground floor. Additionally, the ground floor accommodation has been configured to form a self-contained one-bedroom apartment with its own kitchen, sitting room, shower room and bedroom, with its own private entrance in addition to a door leading to the main house. It could be rented for income potential or used as accommodation for grandparents, guests or older children, or incorporated into the main house .

Situation
Harrow Road West is a highly sought-after residential road to the south west of Dorking, with far reaching views over Ranmore and Box Hill. The road leads to the Nower, an area of open green space that's popular with dog walkers and joggers and offers fantastic views plus direct access to the Surrey Hills. Dorking town centre is about 10 minutes' walk away and offers a variety of individual shops, restaurants, pubs and supermarkets, including a Waitrose. Dorking station offers fast services to both Victoria and Waterloo, while Deepdene Station gives access to the Reading/Tonbridge line. The A24 provides access to the M25 at Leatherhead with Gatwick and Heathrow International airports being readily accessible. The general area is famous for its outstanding countryside, much of which is under National Trust ownership with opportunities for walking and cycling. Also nearby is Denbies, England's largest vineyard. Good local schools include Ashcombe, St Pauls, St Martin's Primary and The Priory School.

Outside
There is off-street parking and access to a garage from the front of the property, where there is also a small front garden and a gate inset within the wall leading to the rear. The rear garden is of a good size and mostly laid to lawn, with landscaped borders stocked with a variety of mature shrubs. Established trees provide a high degree of privacy, in addition to walled boundaries.
