Nestled in Greenbelt | Dorking 8 miles | Horsham 6 miles | Gatwick Airport 12 miles | Reigate 12 miles | London 30 miles | Brighton 31 miles | (road distances - approximate)A Manor House with 14 Acres; Osbrooks is a stunning Grade II Listed Manor House with a long and rich history that can be shared on viewings... Formal gardens designed by Gertrude Jekyll, a Victorian extension managed by Detmar Blow are just some of the accolades to this property's opulent past.
The owners (who offer this property with no onward chain) have maintained Osbrooks sparing no expense over their custodial years. Having lived here for the majority of the 21st century they also carried out a program of refurbishment in 2016 which has resulted in an immaculately presented home, superior to many listed properties but with a very sympathetic modern edge.
Oak flooring has been used in the dining room with limestone across the whole entrance and reception hall area. Contemporary bathroom fittings and modern fixtures compliment the period architecture, creating a boutique feel family residence that is warming and welcoming, it's also perfect for entertaining.
A Heated Swimming Pool takes an elevated position off the rear patio with its own terrace and hot tub. A short walk away is the newly constructed, detached outbuilding (2015) which incorporates an Office, Gymnasium, Workshop and Wet Room. Parking is available on the large driveway for many cars as well as the two-bay, oak framed carport.
The famous garden designer, Gertrude Jeykll (whose brother gave Robert Louis Stevenson the name for his classic novel) drew up plans for parts of the formal garden. These gardens and the surrounding grounds are a magnificent feature of Osbrooks.
Close to the house are large, mature flower and shrub borders and a paved stone path provide several seating areas. To the rear are extensive areas of lawn, peppered with a variety of shrubs and trees, they sweep away to the south and west down a path leading to the stream and lake in a sheltered valley.
The property is hidden down a long driveway and set in 14 acres of formal gardens, extensive lawns, woodland and lakes. It occupies a rural position just to the south of Capel village and is just over 20 minutes by car to Gatwick Airport that and has train services to London Victoria arriving less than 30 minutes from departure.
The village offers everything for day to day needs and includes a popular pub, shops, church, village hall, school and recreation ground.PLEASE NOTE: Osbrooks also comes with planning permission for class C2 use as well as it's existing C3 (dwellinghouse) use. C2 use covers residential accommodation and care to people in need of care, residential schools, colleges or training centres, hospitals and nursing homes. With C2 and C3 uses applied, it is quite likely C1 would also be allowed but this would be STP.ADDITIONAL INFORMATION...
