Beechwood is the western half of a substantial Victorian country residence that we believe dates from 1890, with later additions, and has been in the same family ownership since 1920. As such it is an extremely rare offering as this will be the first time it has been on the open market in over 90 odd years. As you would expect with a house of this age it boasts many fine period features and offers wonderful room proportions. Downstairs the accommodation briefly comprises entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, snug, study, kitchen/breakfast room, utility and downstairs WC. Upstairs there are 6 Bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with the potential to create added bathrooms if so desired. Furthermore there is a large attic area that could lend itself to a variety of uses/additional accommodation, subject to gaining all necessary consents.
Hidden away right at the heart of this popular Surrey village Beechwood enjoys a magnificent position midway between the historic market towns of Dorking and Reigate. Buckland itself is well known for its picturesque village green and pond, its church and thriving village shop. Local buses stop at the top of the lane. Brockham village is just over a mile away and boasts an excellent range of village facilities for day-today needs including a general store and post office, chemist, butchers, two pubs on the green, village church and a primary school.
For a more comprehensive range of shopping facilities the thriving market town centres of Dorking and Reigate are only 4 and 2.1 miles away respectively. Each offer a good selection of mainstream and individual shops, cafes and restaurants including the likes of Laura Ashley, Cafe Rouge, Bills, Cote, Marks & Spencer and Waitrose to name but a few. For the commuter Dorking mainline station offers regular train services to London Victoria and London Waterloo while Redhill station provides services to London Bridge and Victoria. Junctions 9 and 8 of the M25 are within 6.5 and 3.5 miles respectively and for the international traveller Gatwick is 9 miles to the south. Educationally wise there are a number of outstanding state and independent schools within the vicinity including Dunnottar, Aberdour Preparatory School, Reigate Grammar, Boxhill, Micklefield, Holmesdale and Reigate Priory to name but a few. Sporting and recreational facilities in the area include golf at Dorking Golf Club, Betchworth Golf Club, Reigate Heath and The RAC Country Club. Tennis at the Dorking Tennis & Squash Club. Racing at Sandown and Epsom (home of the Derby). Polo at Epsom Polo Club and wine tasting at Denbies Vineyard, which is England's largest commercial vineyard. The surrounding countryside is considered by many to be the finest in the south east and offers exceptional access to miles of open and protected countryside, including the North Downs and Box Hill, with some excellent walking, cycling and hacking trails.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
