Characterful family home set in a private estate location.

Description
Built in 1934 and set on a corner plot in a prime gated private estate in Surrey, this lovely five bedroom family home retains some beautiful period features.

The property has a lovely approach. Set behind wrought iron electric gates, the house sits centrally in a generous plot, allowing for a large driveway and access to two detached garage blocks set either side of the house. The whole frontage is bordered with mature shrubs and planting making the house very striking from the road.

The inviting entrance hall features original beams and beautiful mirrored paneling. The elegant drawing room has an open fireplace with a wood burner as its focal point and double doors leading out to the rear garden and terrace. There is a formal dining room also accessed from the entrance hall which enjoys views over the garden and also features a focal fireplace. The country style kitchen is a generous space and opens up to the bright and tranquil breakfast room which again gives you access to the garden. A utility room leads off the kitchen and has a side door giving access outside. There is a study/family room to the front of the property providing the perfect place for family time. Additionally there is a guest cloakroom situated on this floor.

The oak staircase with original panelling leads to the first floor landing. From here you have access to the triple aspect main bedroom with generous en suite. There are four further bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes, a family bathroom and a separate cloakroom.

A particular feature of the property is the outstanding garden with a manicured lawn and a patio area to the rear and side of the property which catches the afternoon/evening sun, the ideal place to relax and unwind on a summers evening. Throughout the garden are beds with a huge variety of flowering shrubs and plants, and with larger trees on the periphery, this beautiful garden is both colourful and secluded. The gardens are fitted with a full irrigation system and there is a pretty water feature.

Location
Arguably the most prestigious road in Walton-on-Thames, Silverdale Avenue is a wide tree lined avenue of similar ‘Arts & Crafts’ family homes. Ashley Park is one of Surrey’s most prestigious private estates and was originally part of Henry VIII’s Hampton Court hunting grounds. It now adjoins a park and cricket ground and is within half a mile of Walton-on-Thames town centre with its cosmopolitan mix of restaurants, bars and leading retail outlets.

Walton on Thames is located on the south side of the River Thames, with a most impressive landmark, a stunning road bridge that spans the Thames between Walton and Shepperton. The current bridge is the 6th to be built here since 1750. The town began as a small Celtic settlement. It is recorded in the Doomsday book as Waletona, or ’Welsh Town’. The name has evolved over time to become Walton on Thames.
The river access makes this town a perfect place to live if you have a love of the outdoors. There is ample opportunity for activities such as walking, cycling, running and the plethora of watersports that are available. There are also clubs for tennis, rugby, football, dance, theatre and much more.

Outstanding leisure facilities are nearby including golf at Burhill, St George’s Hill, The Wisley, Wentworth, and The Berkshire. Excellent clubs for sport and arts including Reeds Weybridge RFU, Weybridge Cricket Club, Walton and Kingston Athletics Clubs, Susan Robinson Ballet and Julie Sianne Theatre Arts. There is a wide choice of recreational facilities including health clubs such as David Lloyd and St George’s Hill Lawn Tennis Club. The River Thames and River Wey offer water sports and there is racing at both Sandown Park and Kempton Park.

There is access to excellent healthcare at Prime Health (GP services, Consultant clinics, diagnostics and rehabilitation), Weybridge and Walton Physiotherapy and several other healthcare providers.

During the 1st World War, Walton on Thames provided medical treatment for Soldiers from New Zealand. There is still a Kowhai tree, native to New Zealand, planted opposite the New Zealand Avenue entrance to The Heart and bearing a memorial plaque. During the 1920’s the area became known for its passion for film and boasted several studios, including the Cecil Hepworth Studio, which was converted to a theatre by the original architect when the studio closed. In World War II, the town was heavily bombed, due to its close proximity to Brooklands where planes and other war materials were manufactured.

After the 2nd World War, the town began to re-develop, the film studios made a comeback and many films were made out of studios such as the Nettlefold and Walton Studios. The area also had a passion for racing and in the 1940’s and 50’s HWM (Hersham and Walton Motors) built racing cars including Formula 1 cars driven by legends including Stirling Moss. HWM is still very much part of the town and after winding up the racing car business, took a franchise in iconic Aston Martin cars.

The area benefits from a range of independent, state and international schools, including Ashley C of E Primary School, ACS Cobham International School, Brooklands College, Cardinal Newman Catholic Primary, Cleve’s School, Feltonfleet School, Guildford High School, Hampton School, Heathside School, LEH School, Notre Dame School, Parkside School, Reeds School, Royal Guildford School, Sir William Perkins’s School, St. George’s College, Surbiton High School, Three Rivers Academy.
