Move to Banstead: Great village, great location…

On the fringe of London in the county of Surrey is the village of Banstead. Banstead feels a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the City, where farms, smallholdings and leafy lanes dominate the landscape and it is located only 18 miles from the Capital.  

Its location to London and lush countryside has made it a very popular place for house buyers wanting to benefit from being in the countryside whilst enjoying an easy commute to London, which is just under an hours train journey.

Although Banstead is a village, people often mistaken it for a town as it has a lengthy high street which gives it more of a town feel. There is a good selection of shops including a Marks & Spencers Simply Food, Tesco Express, a sports centre, coffee bars and restaurants.

Family buyers are drawn to the good selection of primary schools and The Beacon, a secondary school and several good independent schools.

If you are looking to buy in the Banstead village then Goodfellows Cheam Village has this lovely character property for sale with a guide price of £850,000.With lots of parking, a stunning interior and a mature private rear garden this is an exciting proposition. A must view.

Happily, this property is conveniently located to take full advantage of what’s on offer in Banstead. Set back from the road at the end of a long, wide driveway (57ft x circa 50ft) the double fronted house catches the eye with its turreted bays.

Upon entering, the immediate sense of spaciousness is apparent. Although classified as a bungalow, the addition of a mezzanine master suite provides flexibility and extra appeal to those seeking more.

The ground floor flows between well presented good condition rooms. Acting as the spine, the hallway provides access for all rooms which, if used in the current order, would act as three reception rooms, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a spacious fitted kitchen. One of the standout rooms is the kitchen which opens into the family area; the fitted kitchen has space for many cooks and storage for many gadgets, whilst in the family room the abundance of glass and the unrestricted ceiling height accentuates the living quality and provides that something special above other property. Together they make questionably one of the most cooperative spaces available.

The second room to be described is the master suite which acts as a couple s hideaway. The staircase leads to a double bedroom, with walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom leading off the main room. The room is finished with glass doors and a Juliet balcony surveying the rear garden. The whole interior is hard to fault and will impress.

Externally the garden measures circa 177ft in length and circa 50ft in width. Landscaped for maximum enjoyment and pleasure, the garden is perfect for entertaining, relaxing and lifestyle. Already set-up for growing veg, fruit and keeping chickens, these are extras to the traditional lawn and large patio. Imagine The Good Life without the restrictions! The sellers love of horticulture is clear from the borders, which contain mature tropical specimens mixed with a flurry of colour and texture during the summer months.
