Property Summary

*** Sold Subject To Contract ***

It must have been a real pleasure to live in an original 1930’s home. Full of charm and character, this extended 1930's semi-detached family home has been in our clients family life for many years, capturing many happy and fond memories. Positioned in the most wonderful plot, this unique opportunity offers its new owner a chance for enhancement and to continue to restore some of the home's former glory. 

You are welcomed into this charming home by generous proportions in the hallway with tall ceilings and plenty of original features. Back in its day, in the hallway would most likely be a hat stand and a small table for letters and post. The formal dining room with a beautiful bay window flooding the room with natural light, is positioned to the front of the house, a square room, giving you a real sense of space. The centrepiece of this room is the original chunky tiled fireplace. 

A rear extension has been carried out to enlarge the second reception room and the kitchen. The architectural lines of many 1930's semi's are actually quite distinctive and strong so it makes sense for any extension. This may not mean having to match the original, but rather creating something that compliments it visually. There is a wood burning stove for those chilly, but cosy evenings in, and sliding doors from the second reception room into the bright conservatory.  An additional side extension has also been added just off the kitchen and provides two additional bedrooms and downstairs shower room. Semi open-plan remodelling layout makes sense here due to its traditional layout.

Upstairs are a further three bedrooms, two of which are doubles and the third is a generous single, and a family bathroom. Outside is a driveway offering plenty of parking.

Another feature we totally love …. If your mint bliss is a garden with old-timey charm and designs of yesteryear then look no further ! 

This wonderful sunny patch was once implemented solely for its usefulness to grow fruits and vegetables, celebrating the flavours of the seasons and saving a bit of money on the grocery bill throughout warmer times.

Imagine the colours of blossoms in early spring from the white blossom of the pear tree, the slight pink hue of the apple and the darker pink of the cherry tree. Watch the garden’s structure grow and unfold each year.

Pretty and deep borders overflow with a medley of colours, forms and shapes and the smell of sweet aromas from fragrant plants such as jasmine and roses together with a variety of herbs that often provide great ground cover. This patch is buzzing with wildlife and full of garden plants that were hugely popular in the 1930’s such as hollyhocks, foxgloves, delphiniums and carnations. Enjoy ! 

All in all, this wonderful home has so much to love about it - you will create your own ideas and alterations that will evoke the era - in turn, this will make it feel familiar and at home.

Ottershaw village in Surrey is not far from the towns of Addlestone and Woking. The village developed in the mid-19th century from a number of separate hamlets and became a parish in its own right in 1871.

The selection of leisure pursuits available in the local area is vast and includes the playing fields which has a children’s play area and facilities for tennis, bowls and cricket and within a short distance are plenty of dog and country walks, running and cycle routes. Foxhills hotel and country club is nearby where you can enjoy many weekly activities across their 400-acre Surrey country estate offering 3 golf courses, spa, 5 swimming pools and 3 restaurants.

In the centre of the village you will find the parade of shops, pubs and restaurants and within a short walk away is Ottershaw Christ Church CofE Infant and Junior Schools. Also in the village is the Ofsted ‘outstanding’ Meath School which helps children aged 4-11 with complex speech, language and communication needs build the foundations they need to thrive.

The busy village hall is central to village life and used for a number of different activities for all ages such as the Ottershaw Players who have been running since 1963 performing plays and offer a variety of productions and home written plays. The village hall committee run a village quiz.

Communications are superb with the M25 and the national motorway network only a few miles away with the A3 providing direct access to London. South Western Railway run trains from Addlestone to London Waterloo while South West main line trains run to and from London Waterloo from the nearby station at West Byfleet.
