Fine & Country proudly present this superb detached house designed in a modernist style with Art Deco influences. Boasting 7,500 sq ft of accommodation and a prime plot in a highly regarded private Surrey/Greater London road, rest assured the interior is every bit as impressive as the exterior. We highly recommend exploring further.

Downscroft provides a sensual experience and would be an extension of any owner s personality, subtlety mixing several architectural influences which flow as easily as water. The views, styles and atmosphere within change depending on where you are in the house at any one time; each area provides a glimpse of the next and invitingly leads you further. The success has been to create an adult house which is accessibly enjoyable and comfortable for the whole family.

Upon entry, the semi-sheer automatic gates provide access from the private road. First impressions are remarkable, with the overall visual being one of simplicity, although the detail is everywhere. The drive splits in two directions; the slate clad wall leads to the lower level garage whilst the driveway follows the low level box hedging, white birch trees and agapanthus planting. The centralised double width/height glass door invites and leads you inside.

The house circulates around the open plan turreted staircase, spiralling from the media, gym and entertainment basement level, up through the living areas and onwards to the sleeping quarters on the top floor.

The ground floor is zoned with areas which feel distinctly adult, family and child friendly. The main area is the family zone which is shared with the comprehensively fitted high gloss walnut kitchen.

Although the main part of the ground floor is relatively open plan, the sheer size makes privacy between the zones possible. In each area you take in different views of the surrounding gardens; east meets west with a Japanese inspired black bamboo courtyard to the side. We urge you to view the floor plan to fully explore the layout and accommodation on offer.

Some of the technology included beneath the skin includes eco features such as solar tubes and a ground source heat pump. Other features to make life easier and more comfortable include air cooling, underfloor heating and mood lighting. Lastly, featured luxuries include Miele and Gaggenau appliances and made-to-measure Corian work surfaces: all go towards creating a sumptuous environment which feels healthy, modern and eco-friendly.

Moving to the outside elements of the house, the formal courtyard is off-set by the relaxed main garden with its expanse of lawn, space for a trampoline, oblong swimming pool and covered seating/changing area.

Locally, the area is prestigious and for those who play golf, The Drive runs adjacent to Banstead Downs golf course. Surrounding property on this private road is large and detached and most are set well back from the kerb and hidden behind security gates providing privacy. Neighbouring roads are affluent and provide an aspirational move for many.

Area InformationAREA INFORMATION:-

South Cheam is a prestigious, sought after area situated just over half an hour train journey away from central London and yet with its own village close by and a leafy, semi-rural appeal. The houses range from substantial four bedroom detached family homes, to extravagant mini-mansions. As mentioned, access into London for the commuter is easy and abundant with train stations at Cheam Village, Sutton, Belmont and East Ewell. Schooling has always been regarded as superb with a mix of well positioned primary schools, state high schools, prep. and grammar schools. The nearest primary school is Avenue Primary with Nonsuch High School for Girls and Sutton Grammar for Boys are both easily reached by bus. Shopping in the village is convenient and caters for most everyday needs with its two supermarkets, butchers, bakers and hardware store. For a more comprehensive shopping experience, Sutton, Epsom and Kingston-upon-Thames are easily reached by car or public transport. Access to airports for those who travel is easy with the nearby A217 taking you towards the M25. Cheam itself is an area orientated towards family life and offers much to see and do a hidden gem of Surrey.
