The Lea is part of a beautiful period property that is rich in history. Having originally been built for Sir William Baliol Brett Knight in 1868, it is the oldest home on New Road.
A landmark front wall and carriageway driveway make for a splendid entrance and a welcome to this historical four-bedroom home that no other property in Esher can offer.
The grandeur continues when the front door opens into a magnificent double-height hallway with a sweeping staircase, a marble fireplace and a truly unique stained glass ceiling window which floods the home with light.
The main reception room offers a more formal entertaining area with wood flooring, grand ceiling heights, original coving, a marble fireplace and French doors. The bespoke Martin Moore kitchen and utility room features a walk-in pantry, hand painted cupboards and a natural stone floor. A more informal living/family room follows on from the kitchen, creating a homely and social space for any family.
There is also a downstairs WC and access to the cellar which offers huge development potential.
The exquisite master bedroom has a dressing room and a modern en suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, one of which has an en suite, and a large family bathroom with a roll top bath.
An outside courtyard offers a quaint al fresco dining area while a pathway leads to the expansive garden, a secret gem in the heart of Esher. With a swimming pool, mature shrubbery and total privacy, this is a tranquil setting that few properties can offer. This home is the chance to own part of Esher’s history as well as an unparalleled and unique family home.
