Victorian gem

27th March 2014 Print

A beautifully-refurbished Victorian property is not the only positive about Okehurst. This charming five-bed home also has a generous outbuilding in the garden – perfect to convert into an office, a guest house for the au pair, subject to the necessary consents, or even somewhere you could restore classic cars. Open up the back of the separate double garage and you could even drive the cars straight through!

Situated on New Park Road in Cranleigh, near Guildford, Okehurst is a very special home that has retained many of its original features whilst being carefully restored by Millwood Designer Homes. In fact, the award-winning housebuilder has done such a good job that Okehurst has been designated as a Building of Local Merit by Waverley Borough Council because of its architectural merit, townscape value and historic associations.

Says local estate agent Roger Coupe:

“Okehurst really is the home that keeps on giving. Inside, it has the spacious feel of a Victorian home, with high ceilings as well as a huge loft with access to the attractive turret, and a cellar.

“Many original features have been refurbished and revived, including the original front door with its beautiful coloured-glass surround and glass inserts, the original parquet floor in the entrance hall and a number of ornate fireplaces which, although not functional, are an attractive addition, with elegant marble surrounds and tiling.

“The skirting boards and picture rails have been retained, and doors and sash windows have been refurbished. The impressive oak staircase with ornate spindles has been sanded and repainted.

“The main changes have been to the kitchen, bathrooms and en suites, and all have been refitted with contemporary fixtures and fittings. The kitchen is now fully fitted with a range of modern appliances and in the utility room, the new butler sink is a nod to the home’s heritage.

“Outside, the home offers even more scope. Not only is there a new double garage but the existing outbuilding has been kept in view of its considerable potential.

“Okehurst is a rare find in Cranleigh and one that really does offer you plenty of scope – contact us today to arrange a viewing.”

Cranleigh is eight miles from Guildford, with all that this large town has to offer, including a fast train to London Waterloo in just over half an hour. Cranleigh is also close to the A281, with easy access to the A3 and M25.

Guide price £1.195 million.
