A delightful two bedroom, first (top) floor, Victorian mansion flat, forming part of a small gated development in leafy surroundings, occupying a convenient central location close to West Street and the Town Centre.


Westfield Gardens is an exclusive private development created by Laing Homes in 2003, consisting of only 9 small town houses and three large apartments forming the main Victorian manor house. The property is accessed via remotely operated security gates off Drill Hall Road with a private driveway leading to residents parking area.  Each property benefits from its own designated parking bay with four spaces reserved for guests and visitors.

The apartment is full of character with tall ceilings and large sash windows (all enjoying South / West aspects), and boasts a sizeable floor area in excess of 1,275 sq ft / 118.5 m2.  This apartment benefits from its own private entrance located to the rear of the building at raised ground level. When converted it was fortunate to retain the original 'easy-rising' Victorian staircase, featuring decorative newel post and ornate balustrades, with a beautifully carved mahogany hand rail leading to a mezzanine and galleried landing.

The accommodation is well configured, comprising a large double aspect sitting room with imposing stone and cast iron fireplace (gas fire), and two matching built-in cabinets, one with book shelving, and the other featuring attractive stained and leaded glass displays.  The kitchen / dining room is particularly noteworthy as it provides modern units complete with built-in appliances and granite worktops, but is dominated by a broad bay window which currently accommodates a large dining table and chairs (for up to 8 people). If you pick the right chair you get a wonderful elevated view over West Street.

The master bedroom with its own en-suite shower room, also provides a walk-in wardrobe with plenty of hanging space, as well as built-in drawers and high level cupboards. In addition, there is a loft hatch with 'timber' pull-down ladder giving way to a cavernous attic space which is boarded.  There is a second large double bedroom with built-in wardrobe, this room is served by its own bathroom which also acts as the guest cloakroom / W.C off the hallway.  Externally the drive and paths are well lit. This apartment along with two other residents in the main building share use of beautifully maintained communal gardens, which are well screened by tall privet hedges.

Location: Situated on the corner of West Street and Drill Hall Road on an elevated position, the town centre is only a short stroll away giving easy access to numerous independent shops, cafes and restaurants. The area offers excellent transport links with buses, and a choice of three mainline railway stations. Dorking is only an hour away from both Waterloo and Victoria stations, and under 30 minutes to Gatwick.  Whilst by car the the town is on a crossing for the A25 and A24, only 10 minutes to the M25 providing swift routes to Gatwick, Heathrow and London. Dorking is in addition situated in the Surrey Hills  a much favoured location for both hikers and bikers alike.

Viewings highly recommended to appreciate this beautiful character property with the advantage of immediate vacant possession.

Tenure: Lease held on a 125 year term effective June 2001, with Share of Freehold.

Parking: Allocated space. Visitor and guest parking bays.
