Conveniently located just a short walk from the centre of Epsom, the property provides bright accommodation laid out over two floors, with the benefit of a further second floor loft space, with existing space to utilise as a further room and carrying potential for extension, subject to planning. Beautifully appointed to a high standard throughout, the property further features an inviting reception room, well equipped kitchen, generous first floor family bathroom with period style free-standing bath suite, stylish master en-suite, ample inbuilt storage, gas central heating, double glazing and quality floor coverings.

A further inviting reception area with modern feature fireplace provides a cosy space for relaxing and entertaining. The kitchen comprises a modern range of matching wall and base units with work surfaces incorporating inset sink unit, gas hob with overhead extractor, electric oven, and further space for appliances. To the first floor, there are two well proportioned bedrooms, each with inbuilt wardrobes, with a contemporary style en-suite shower to the master, separated by a glazed wall. A family bathroom with period style free-standing bath suite completes the first floor accommodation. The second floor is spanned by a large loft space, ideal for further conversion, subject to the necessary planning consents being obtained.

Viewings of this lovely property are highly recommended.

The property is enviably located in a quiet location within just a short walk of Epsom station and regular bus routes providing excellent links into Central London and to the surrounding area. Epsom itself offers an array of shops, bars, cafes, restaurants and amenities including a cinema and theatre, and the area is well served by attractive open spaces including Mounthill Gardens, Rosebery Park and the nearby expanse of Epsom Common.

Seller’s Comments
'This is a quirky, homely home that has a lovely feel of comfort and sense of belonging the minute you walk in.

This beautifully renovated and tastefully extended 1880’s Railway Signal-man’s Cottage has a charming external appearance but it does not stop there, with additional delights found within and an array of hidden storage possibilities and clever nooks and crannies’ to help you keep a tidy, well presented residence.

Epsom Overground train station is mere 5 minute walk away, where you can reach numerous major London Overground and Underground Stations heading into Town in as little as 35 minutes and Guildford and Dorking Overground Stations are a hop and a skip away (heading in the opposite direction).

If it’s a spot of shopping you are after, the Epsom Ashlea Centre is just a few minutes’ walk away and in town you will also find you are spoilt for choice with an extensive list of bars, restaurant’s, parks and a Cinema too! The neighbours are friendly and helpful, we have been part of this community for nearly 20 years and we will miss our Epsom neighbours for sure.'

By giving a buyer time to exchange contracts on the property, normal residential finance can be arranged. The Buyer’s Premium secures the transaction and takes the property off the market.

Further clarification on this must be sought from your legal representative.

Copies of the Reservation Form and all Terms and Conditions can be found in the Information Pack which can be downloaded from our website or requested from our Auctioneer.

This secures the transaction and takes the property off the market. Any additional fees and charges over and above this will be confirmed within the terms and conditions available on the website.

The Buyer's Premium and buyer's administration charge are in addition to the final negotiated selling price.

Buyer's Administration Charge

If the Buyer Information Pack has been produced and provided by GOTO Group any successful purchaser will be required to pay £354.00 (including VAT) towards the cost of the preparation of the pack. These can then be used by your solicitor to progress the sale.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPCs)

An EPC is broadly like the labels provided with domestic appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines. Its purpose is to record how energy efficient a property is as a building. The certificate will provide a rating of the energy efficiency and carbon emissions of a building from A to G, where A is very efficient, and G is inefficient. The data required to allow the calculation of an EPC includes the age and construction of the building, its insulation and heating method. EPCs are produced using standard methods with standard assumptions about energy usage so that the energy efficiency of one building can easily be compared with another building of the same type. The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) requires that all buildings have an EPC when they are marketed for sale or for let, or when houses are newly built. EPCs are valid for 10 years, or until a newer EPC is prepared. During this period the EPC may be made available to buyers or new tenants.
