Elm Tree Cottage is a stunning 1920's home that has been lovingly revived by the current owners and is full of characteristic charm complemented by modern interior design. The current owners have secured extensive planning permission (a two story side and rear extension) to convert it into a four bedroom family home. Homes around this location are in demand with buyers moving from London to the suburbs to reap the benefits of outstanding schools, a 44 minute train into London Waterloo and the short drive to Junction 9 of the M25 that provides easy access to both London Gatwick and Heathrow airports. Kingston Avenue is within a 0.3 mile walk to Leatherhead train station and Leatherhead town centre and its charming high street surrounded by privately owned restaurants, convenient shops and a local Waitrose for your daily needs. It is an area perfect for young professionals and families.
The large gravel driveway offers room for three family cars, and from the moment you enter the house you get a real sense of style, light and space. You really get the best of the old and the new here, with restored wooden floorboards through to the softly carpeted lounge and elegant dining room, where you are greeted with charm, character and contemporary class. Key features include the lounge with its modern custom made integrated TV unit and fireplace, with bespoke shelving either side and a natural quartz stone worktop. In the summer months, you can swing open the door in the kitchen and let the outside in. The easy to maintain patio area and lawned south-facing rear garden serves as the ideal arena to host the perfect barbecue when entertaining friends and family.
WHAT THE OWNERS WISH TO SAY!
"Since moving in we’ve slowly brought the house back to life from top to bottom, inside and out. We spent day and night carefully considering all the little details to give it it's wow factor. What initially attracted us, alongside seeing huge potential here, was the location. Our street has a real family feel and yet it’s only a quick walk into Leatherhead town centre where you can easily spend a day shopping and running errands. It’s also been an easy daily commute into London. Walks up on the St John's playing fields and the local parks, afternoons spent in the 'The Plough' Pub, a curry on the way home (one of the best). We’ll be sad to leave!"
