A commuter's dream. A handsome family home in a sought after location yet within easy reach of London.
HOUSE AND GARDENS
Through a set of iron gates and over a large driveway lies this handsome family home. Set in an elevated position with superb views across the garden, Bridley House was built in 1916 by renowned architect and master builder W. G. Tarrant. A substantially built house, typical of the period, Bridley House has a warm and inviting feel, with generously proportioned rooms - ideally suited for a family and those who enjoy entertaining. There are a number of attractive features including the beautifully crafted Clive Christian kitchen, high ceilings with period cornicing and traditional large windows which fill the house with light and frame the stunning elevated views over the garden. There is a choice of well-proportioned, versatile reception rooms and the seven bedroom, three bathroom layout over two floors makes for comfortable family living. The main bedroom is particularly impressive and includes a dressing room and luxurious ensuite bathroom with a Kohler River bath and enclosed steam shower.
Outside there is a large, raised terrace enjoying views over the garden, perfect for outside dining and entertaining. Steps lead down to the beautiful lawns which are framed by a number of well stocked beds that are full of colour during the summer months. A variety of mature trees and shrubs are interspersed throughout much of the garden and form the majority of the boundary which in turn offers complete privacy. There is a useful garage as well as parking for a number of cars.
Adjoining the main house is an indoor swimming pool complex which requires updating. This could be either restored or the sizeable footprint used for further accommodation (subject to the usual planning consents).
