Classy improvements mix with Edwardian elegance

    Laurel Wood House

    Laurel Wood House is a handsome Edwardian country property in Claygate, close to Collier Street and Marden.

    Boasting lovely period features, and subject to a thorough and sensitive refurbishment, it has been extended to create a superb open-plan kitchen/sitting/dining room which is the heart of the home.

    The front door opens to a reception hall with cloakroom, and beyond this is the stunning drawing room, which has a magnificent fireplace with bespoke stone surround, a bay window to the front and double doors opening to the open-plan extension to the rear.

    This thoughtfully designed, bright and airy room also has French doors to the terrace, and with underfloor heating provides an exemplary family living and entertaining space all year round.

    The kitchen area has further French doors to the terrace, as well as a stone floor, high quality units – including a large central island – and an adjoining utility room.

    On the first floor, the master bedroom has a bay window to the front, a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room. Also on this floor are a guest bedroom, an impressive family bathroom and a box room/study.

    Two further bedrooms lie on the top floor.

    Flanking the rear of the house is a substantial stone-paved terrace bordered by neat, clipped box hedging.

    Pretty gardens lie beyond this, well stocked with a range of flowering shrubs and mature hedges giving good levels of privacy.

    There is an idyllic meadow area at the rear which backs on to open farmland. Within this is an old apple orchard, a children’s play area and mown pathways between masses of natural wildflowers.

    The detached former garage is currently used as an office/den, and ample parking is provided on the gravel driveway at the front of the house.
