Whether you're looking for a charming home or somewhere that can be your Grand Design, or Amazing Space, here's somewhere that could be all those things.
This is somewhere that offer two paths ahead and it makes this home all the more special in our eyes.
Walking under the trees, as dappled sunlight glistens around you, heading back toward this home from looking over the fence to the neighbouring horse field behind, you may have seen the tree house next door, this is somewhere that could get you thinking about creating a similar Amazing Space, how fabulous that would be amongst the trees here.
Heading back to the property, you look at the shape of the roof line, the sets of french doors opening out and think, this is an attractive home and much bigger than it looks from the road. Then you start to consider all the rooms, how you can use the space, the flexibility it gives and you understand why it was a great family home for the owner. Master bedroom with en suite downstairs, french doors to throw open onto the garden, daughters in the bedrooms upstairs, it works well, a peace invoking degree of separation.
There's a 'family room' that leads to the ground floor en suite bedroom, a traditional room with bay window and fireplace. It makes this a perfect little 'annexe' to the right-hand side of the house, a sense of independence and freedom for whoever uses it.
There's a study area, it makes the entrance a wonderfully open space and one that can be dressed beautifully and made very practical.
Then there's the garden, the land stretches away behind, lawns leading to a wooded area with a lovley mix of trees including oaks, we’ve already talked about this space, accounting for much of what is nearly an half acre plot. To the right-hand side of the home is an area of ground housing a garden shed, this is the part that gets your brain working and gives us the second thread of possibility here.
For those with a creative eye, anyone wanting a project, to create their own 'Grand Design', this is where opportunity may arise.
Take away the former garage, now split for the workshop and garage area (good for motorbikes and storage), take that volume and apply it to the right-hand side where the shed stands, suddenly you open up all sorts of possibilities. We'll let your imagine begin to play. Plans already exist and permission is granted for some simple alterations, not quite as dramatic as we've just mentioned.
Chaldon is one of those barely discovered gems. Close to Caterham, easy for the train and amidst glorious countryside, it is green on the edge of London, accessible yet an escape from the hustle and bustle.
You only have to look at how few homes sell through the years in Church Lane to realise, this is somewhere to enjoy living and to settle.
For those who are interested, here's a link to the plans drawn up for current changes proposed. http://tdccomweb.tandridge.gov.uk/Planning/lg/GFPlanningViewDocumentInDialog.page?DocNo=23911895
