About this property
CHARMING COUNTRY HOME OF MUCH CHARACTER LOCATED IN AN ENVIABLE POSITION SET IN THE IDYLLIC SURREY COUNTRYSIDE. Detached studio. Heated swimming pool. Attractive grounds of approx. 5 acres. Tennis court. Paddock with stabling potential.
A beautifully presented charming country home of much character located in an enviable position between the villages of Forest Green and Walliswood. This delightful family home offers a wealth of character features combined with a modern style creating excellent living space throughout. The property is presented to the market for the first time in 30 years and an internal viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate this stunning property.
Mayes Green Cottage originated as a modest detached farm cottage which has developed throughout the centuries now creating a spacious family home. The accommodation comprises of a beautiful panelled dining hall, oak flooring, a spacious drawing room with an inglenook fireplace and views over the well-established garden as well as a cosy snug with an open fire, ideal for winter evenings. A particular feature of the property is the fabulous open plan kitchen/sitting/family room which has bi-folding doors onto a south facing terrace which in turn leads to the garden. This wonderful living space has been carefully designed by the current owners with the kitchen offering a range of high quality units with granite worktops and a well-equipped island with a useful breakfast bar. There is also the benefit of a fitted utility room and a downstairs shower room/wc. Another feature of the downstairs is the hidden wine cellar with a hydraulic glass hatch and spiral stairs, offering extensive temperature controlled storage. From the inner hallway a turning staircase leads to the first floor landing which in turn leads to the principal bedrooms. The master bedroom has a well fitted dressing room which leads to a large en suite bathroom. There are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom on this level.
Whilst the inside of the property has much charm and character, the outside of Mayes Green Cottage is perhaps of as much importance. There is a large detached studio with a well fitted wet room, perfect for ancillary accommodation as well as a variety of purposes. The garden surrounds the property on three sides and are beautifully landscaped offering a high level of privacy. Being predominantly laid to lawn, the gardens are interspersed with flower and shrub borders as well as a variety of mature trees and an attractive wildlife pond. The side garden to the south was a former orchard, with an area of lawn which in turn leads to a fantastic external entertainment area centred around the heated swimming pool. The terraces around the pool culminate at an outdoor bar, ideal for outside entertaining. A gate at the far end of the garden leads through to a further area of land, in which, the tennis court is sited and well screened. The tennis court is in good working condition and is regularly maintained. Beyond the garden there is a large paddock with gated access onto Pondhead Lane and stables could easily be erected should a purchaser wish.
