Nestled in a wonderful private location in Cobham, oozing character and charm throughout is this amazing period home.
Accessed via electric gates between East and West Lodge and a treelined sweeping driveway, Pains Hill House is a stunning Grade II* listed Georgian country house built circa 1778 and more recently converted in to six private residences. The property offers over 4200sqft of accommodation over four floors including five double bedrooms and four bath / shower rooms on the upper levels.
On the ground floor is where you'll find the feature room of the house. An incredible double aspect drawing room approximately 31ft in length with original feature fireplace and decorative wall mouldings, high ceilings and huge windows allowing views over the beautiful rear garden. Also on this floor is a study to the front and then stairs leading down to the lower ground floor. This is a delightful part of the home with the kitchen / family area to the rear with doors leading to the garden, and then the dining room opposite with feature fireplace, vaulted ceiling and access to the front.
This home is a gem, the feel and elegance of a London townhouse but set in leafy Surrey and offering security, privacy and seclusion. The Georgian features of high ceilings and large windows really allow the light to flood in and the views to be enhanced. The rear garden is approximately 0.4 acre including a patio area ideal for entertaining and is then mainly laid to lawn with borders of mature trees and shrubs. The garden backs on to the renowned 18th century landscaped gardens at Painshill Park where many scenes from TV and film have been shot and features the beautiful Serpentine Lake, Gothic Temple, Crystal Grotto and Turkish tent.
Cobham is an ancient settlement whose origins can be traced back through Roman times to the Iron Age. These days it is a bustling village with an array of coffee shops, boutiques, a Waitrose supermarket and The Ivy restaurant. It makes up part of the so called 'Golden Triangle' including Esher and Weybridge and is very often highlighted as one of the best places to live in the UK and as being the location of the Chelsea Football Club training centre.
The area is popular with families and many buyers from west London move away from City life and settle in this part of Surrey; and it's easy to see why. There is a vast array of outstanding state and private schooling locally including Feltonfleet, Danes Hill, ACS Cobham International, St Andrews, Reed's and Cobham Free School. There are numerous golf, tennis and health clubs, great dog walking routes, horse riding trails, walks along the River Thames and historical sites such as Hampton Court Palace. For the commuter and international traveller train stations at Cobham / Stoke D'Abernon, Esher, Weybridge and Walton on Thames all provide routes into London Waterloo in 30-40 minutes and the A3 / M25 trunk roads give access to The City, south coast and international airports at Heathrow and Gatwick. This really is just a wonderful place to live and 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.
