** A QUITE BEAUTIFUL DETACHED FAMILY HOME IN CENTRAL ESHER **
Situated behind electric gates in central Esher is this incredible detached family home.
Colebrook has been completely renovated and re-built by the present owner and now offers approximately 4600sqft of simply stunning accommodation. Every thought has gone in to the design and planning to make the living spaces and garden a peaceful and tranquil place to sit and enjoy life. The feature glass at the front of the property flood the entrance hall and upper floors with natural light and set the tone for what is to come. As you walk through to the open plan kitchen / family / dining area the view across the 160ft south west facing garden is absolutely breathtaking. For entertaining, this home works perfectly, whether it be private dinner parties in the evening during winter or summer bbq's with the bi-fold doors opening on to the spacious patio. The attention to detail here and the quality on offer is what sets this property apart, the porcelain floor tiles and stone worktops combine perfectly with integrated Miele appliances and underfloor heating to give a relaxed yet functional feel to the home. To the rear of the kitchen is the utility room providing plenty of storage and access to the garage / storage area. The snug is certainly a flexible space and could be used as an additional study or children's play room. For winter evenings in front of the wood burning fire the formal lounge will no doubt be popular.
A beautiful oak and glass staircase leads to the upper floors where, on the first floor, two bedroom suites with wonderful views of the rear garden can be found, along with a guest bedroom and further bathroom with separate shower. The principal bedroom boasts a super en-suite with steam shower and whirlpool bath. On the second floor are two additional bedroom suites (both having spectacular views of the garden) with bedroom two benefitting from a separate dressing room.
For a sizeable family home a great garden is a real bonus and Colebrook certainly doesn't disappoint. The house sits in a plot of approximately 0.4 acre with the garden being one of the many highlights, a sizeable lawn from the patio along with a children's play area to the rear, all surrounded by mature shrubs and trees. The central feature is the beautiful natural swimming pool which is filtered and purified biologically, encouraging wildlife to the garden and providing an ideal escape on a hot summer day. Having the space to work from home is now a 'must have' for many buyers and the home office / gym adjacent to the pool allows a new owner to work or workout in a stunning setting. The decked area is inviting and the perfect spot to sit with a cocktail on a summer evening.
Esher has a wealth of history not least the annexing of some of the manors by Henry VIII in the 16th century in favour of Hampton Court Palace to form a royal hunting ground. The royal connection continued with the famous Claremont mansion, built by Clive of India, being used as a royal residence by Queen Victoria.
Today, the town makes up part of what is now known as 'The Golden Triangle' including Cobham and Weybridge, with superb rail links (London Waterloo in under 30 minutes), road links, (the A3 and M25 providing easy access to The City and international airports at Heathrow and Gatwick), places of historical interest (Hampton Court Palace) and some of the very best state and private schooling in the country.
With an array of wine bars, boutiques, international restaurants, a Waitrose, an Everyman cinema and the world famous Sandown Racecourse, not to mention outstanding leisure facilities and championship golf courses, the town provides an ideal place for things to do, to enjoy life and to raise a family.
The legal bit....... Whilst we try to be as accurate as possible with all descriptions, distances and floor plans, these are all approximate and purchasers must make a full inspection of the property / surrounding area and undertake as much due diligence as they require.
