Pond Place is an attractive and impressive house, in the Cape Cod New England style. From a gabled timber porch, the half-glazed front door opens to a spacious reception hall from which elegant stairs rise to a galleried landing. The dual aspect sitting room features a carved stone, Anglo-French Chesney fireplace and also French double doors to the terrace and garden. Two further reception rooms are arranged as dining room and study. A kitchen/breakfast room includes a range of light oak bespoke furniture, with integrated NEFF appliances, and an island unit. The remaining space is arranged as an informal dining area and the kitchen also benefits from double doors to the terrace. Off the kitchen, a utility area leads to the side door.
First floor accommodation comprises a spacious master suite, with French doors to a glass panelled Juliette balcony and an en-suite shower room. An attractive range of fitted wardrobes conceal the entrance to a walk-in wardrobe and dressing room. There is also a guest suite, third bedroom and family bathroom.
This home has been arranged to take full advantage of its elevated situation, so that the rooms benefit from panoramic views to Netley Heath and Ranmore Common on The North Downs.
The property is approached from the private lane via automatic gates with entry-phone system leading to a gravelled drive and forecourt. A detached double garage benefits from internal stairs leading to a store room with Velux roof window. From a full-width stone paved terrace, with adjacent shrub and flower borders, steps lead down to an area of lawn that slopes gently away from the house. There are spring bulbs, a variety of specimen trees and shrubs and a lily pond, the whole surrounded by hedges and trees.
