An outstanding detached family house with 6 bedroom (4 en suite), 4 receptions and self-contained 2 bedroom cottage set within 0.68 of an acre of private grounds, on the exclusive Coombe Estate. 'Highdale' offers modern living with a rural lifestyle with the benefits of local transport, excellent schools and amenities within easy access.
Believed to have been built circa 1930, this exceptional six bedroom detached family house situated within grounds of approx. 0.68 of an acre in the heart of the exclusive private Coombe Estate is offered in immaculate order throughout. Highdale offers generous lateral accommodation arranged over three floors and a self-contained two bedroomed cottage within the beautiful and mature landscaped grounds that wrap around the property, rarely found in Coombe.
Warren Cutting is approached from Warren Road, which spans from Coombe Lane West through to Kingston Hill providing easy access to a wide variety of highly acclaimed schools. As one progresses down Warren Cutting, the road reaches a T-junction, and on bearing right Highdale is found on the left hand side, discreetly situated behind secure and solid wooden gates with a video entry phone and a pedestrian gate. At the end of Warren Cutting a gate, preventing through traffic, provides pedestrian access to the prestigious Coombe Hill Golf Club.
A sweeping gravelled drive flanked by well manicured lawns, mature trees and bushes provides ample space for guest parking and leads to both the main house and cottage which incorporates a single garage.
Over the years Highdale has been sympathetically extended and refurbished to offer the spectacular accommodation now found within the house. The property boasts solid oak wood strip flooring to the main reception areas and vaulted ceiling hallway. A magnificent arched window floods light into the house. All the wooden Georgian windows and French doors are double-glazed. Stunning contemporary windows and doors, by Velfac, in the family room and second floor games room lead onto the rear terrace and decked balcony with amazing views.
The kitchen was designed by ‘Kitchen Culture’ based in Esher and features contemporary high gloss and natural wood wall and base units paired with a polished composite stone surface. Kitchen appliances are by Miele, Siemens and Atag.
There is a laundry room on the first floor with washing machine, dryer, sink, floor and wall units. The utility room on the ground floor is equipped with additional storage facilities, built in freezer, additional dishwasher and a wide sink unit with mixer tap. The inner lobby/boot room offers ample hanging and shoe space within the built-in cupboards with a secondary cloakroom ideal for family coming in from the garden and alfresco entertaining. A large decked terrace is accessible from the three principal reception rooms providing ample space for table, chairs and sunloungers.
Of the six bedrooms on the first and second floors, five are double bedrooms, three with dressing rooms, and four with en suite bathrooms/shower room in addition to the family shower room. Bathrooms benefit from white suites with Hansgrohe and Duravit fittings and furniture. There is under floor heating to kitchen, family room, rear hallway and utility room and electric under floor heating to all bathrooms.
Highdale, an impeccable family home still offers space for the next occupier to, if required, further extend or create an indoor leisure complex subject to the usual necessary planning consents.
Warren Cutting, a tree lined no-through road, lies equidistant between Kingston and Wimbledon town centres. Both have excellent shopping facilities, from department stores housing concessions found in famous West End streets and specialised boutiques to a wide range of restaurants meeting the palates from across the world. The A3 trunk road offers fast access to central London and both Gatwick and Heathrow airports via the M25 motorway network. The nearest train station at Norbiton is within walking distance, and the 57 bus route runs along nearby Coombe Lane West to Wimbledon from which there are frequent services to Waterloo with its underground links to points throughout the city. Coombe is only 8 miles from the West End and the immediate area offers a wide range of recreational facilities including five golf courses, tennis and squash clubs and many leisure centres. The 2,360 acres of Richmond Park, an area of outstanding beauty, is easily accessed from Kingston Gate and Ladderstile Gate, providing a picturesque setting in which to picnic, go horse riding, jogging or just take a leisurely walk. Theatres at Wimbledon and Richmond are also popular alternatives to the West End.
