It's only on very rare occasions that properties ever become available in the hamlet of Coldharbour, which can only be described as a quintessential English village, nestling in countryside of ancient woodland with echoes of the highlands of Scotland. To that end Coldharbour boasts one of the highest cricket clubs in the SE as well as one of the highest landmarks, Leith Hill Tower.
The property has remained in the same ownership for a generation and now offers the new owner the opportunity to modernise and update whilst retaining the many wonderful character features such as fireplaces latch doors and some exposed timbers, whilst amercing themselves in the quaint village life that Coldharbour affords. There are two good sized reception rooms both having fireplaces and elevated views to the front. There is also a good sized kitchen with ample space for a dining table and chairs plus a further separate dining room with exposed timbers and stairs rising to the first floor. The first floor has four bedrooms as well as the convenience of a family bathroom. The gardens are limited to a small section at the rear, although the location should be considered as one large accessible garden shared by all to respect and enjoy. The property is offered for sale with no ongoing chain.

Dorking is a picturesque Surrey market town nestled at the foot of the North Downs. Steeped in history, much of the original character of the town centre has survived, whilst also accommodating an excellent range of amenities such as Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury's and Waitrose. There is a variety of traditional pubs, bars and restaurants that cater for all tastes and occasions. The Dorking Leisure Centre with swimming pool, Cinema, Theatre and a number of golf courses cater for recreation. To the northeast of the town, the River Mole cuts a steep-sided valley through the North Downs. The left bank is home to Denbies Vineyard, the largest vineyard in the UK; whilst Britains first Country Park, Box Hill, is on the right bank. These rolling hills interspersed with wild orchids are owned by The National Trust and provided the stunning backdrop for a major sector of the 2012 Olympic cycle road race.
