Property Details

The Property

A detached house with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two reception rooms and an extended kitchen. The property is presented in good condition and is steeped in history. You enter via the central entrance hall, passing reception rooms on either side and leading onto the kitchen and dining room. Stairs to the upper floors (two upper floors) which offer the bedrooms and bathrooms. Some features of luxury include the oak replacement doors and log burner to the lounge. The kitchen dining room includes space to prepare and eat food whilst sharing the glorious vistas across the hills.

Outdoor Space

As important as the house. Two gates provide access onto the land; one at the top of the hill, the other toward the lower point. We measure the land at just over 1.3 acres running South West to North east (the rear the house is facing North West). The house sits in the middle of the upper plot and has space on all sides. To the north boundary, the rolling fields and sights of cattle and sheep. Out houses include, the stable which is currently being used as a home aquatics business and an artic cabin. The arctic cabin is a treat for all the family. Essentially a Scandinavian rotunda with a central burner and a place for late nights with family and friends.

The Area

Found between Wallington, Banstead and Carshalton Beeches (with Purley, Coulsdon and Sutton not very far away), the immediate area uniquely offers a semi-rural feel whilst still in Greater London and only a 15 mins walk of Wallington Girls School. From all the aforementioned towns, the choice of excellent schooling, shops and various other amenities are numerous.

Property History

The area and house have lots of interesting backstory that we cannot fully include although we encourage you to research it, read on for an introduction. The old lodge sits on land which was formally part of the Little Woodcote estate, owned by James Arnot who had amassed over 500 acres of farmland by 1871. Mr Arnot built a new farmhouse, which was the original building on the site, to provide housing for the farmhands. This continued in various forms until Surrey County Council launched a scheme of small holdings for ex-servicemen who found difficulties in obtaining work after the first world war. This when it became known as the Old Lodge Farm. Fast forward to 1934 and the original Old Lodge Farmhouse was destroyed by fire. The tenant at the time, Major Bagley, was ruined. The house was rebuilt that year and continued to be owned by the council under the tenancy scheme until the 1950’s. Since that time, the plots slowly became privately owned.

Why You should View

Rarely does a house in Sutton Borough offer so much in way of lifestyle. If you want to be within 1 hour of central London and enjoy all the modern amenities of Greater London, then this location is ideal. It’s also likely to appeal to those wanting to utilise the land for work or hobbies.

Vendor Thoughts

" Some of the things I will miss: The most amazing sunsets… quite simply breath taking. The rising mists in the morning, the panoramic views and the beauty of the changing seasons. The privacy and security of the site. The wildlife, the calves and lambs. The house works well with extended family coming to stay… it is versatile and never feels crowded and the wonderful themed evenings and events in the arctic cabin with family and friends. It sleeps up to five people… an amazing entertaining space."
