Internally period detailing, such as the stone fireplace in the drawing room and the original parquet flooring, have been skilfully enhanced by the present owners and it now provides everything required for a modern and comfortable lifestyle.
Accommodation is laid out over three floors with spacious reception areas and a kitchen/breakfast room furnished with contemporary high gloss cabinets and black granite work surfaces and complete with fine pantry and wine room.
In total there are seven bedrooms; the principal suite provides a fully fitted dressing room with walk-in wardrobe, as well as an en suite bathroom. On the second floor there is a charming reading area and a TV/games console room.
This stunning home is surrounded by beautiful mature gardens, which feature extensive lawns and borders, a fish pond, tennis court and sun terrace with swimming pool. You’ll also find a castellated tree house within the trees.
The property sits in Mogador, a small hamlet on the edge of the Surrey Hills, near to the villages of Kingswood, Walton-on-the-Hill, Banstead and Tadworth and their wide range of amenities.
The Sportsman, a traditional country pub, is just a few hundred yards from Coneybury and at the end of the road there is direct access to Walton and Banstead Heath with miles of path through beautiful countryside – ideal for dog walkers and runners.
