The Horsleys are a typical family orientated area. Saturdays lots of children enjoy sporting activities. Horsley Football Club, The Cricket Club and The Tennis Club are just some of the sporting activities on hand, although the community run clubs offer a plethora of clubs from cycling, running and rambling. Locally families tend to shop on a Saturday in the village enjoying a traditional butchers (Conisbees), bakers (The Bakery) and coffee shop (Quaich) all of which are owned and managed by members of the community and who care and invest in community. The village also has a popular well used library which runs many half term and holiday children’s activities and reading clubs.

Described by the Agent, Curchods this property is a ‘A Downsizers Dream’ this property kitchen 1could work equally and wonderfully well for a young family such as the current owners. Prized at 875K and with an estimated rental of £2750pcm this property would give just under a 4% ROI for those looking at investing in the area. The house itself is a  well maintained Chalet style home offering more than meets the eye, in fact the front is very deceptive. lounge Internally flexible space for adapting to individual needs of family members is offered in proportioned, bright and airy rooms together with character features creating a charming and comfortable environment. Homes such as this have versatile accommodation by nature, having most of the rooms on the ground floor, giving the opportunity to utilize the property as a 2,  3 or even 4* bedroom home depending on how the new owner wishes to utilise the space. Consevatory - 7 Norrels

The entrance hall – the true hub of this home – from which most of the rooms radiate. The sitting room is a cosy, formal room which overlooks the front of the property and features a tiled fireplace with a log burning stove as the focal point. Glazed doors open from the entrance hall to the well proportioned family room, which in turn gives access to the sizable conservatory which enjoys an elevated view over the garden and French doors opening onto a raised, decked terrace. The superb kitchen/dining room is a wonderfully bright room, courtesy of the conservatory style glazed roof. Divided into 2 distinct areas, the kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of cream units, with contrasting granite preparation surfaces, with the focal point being a significant Rangemaster Cooker. The dining area is perfect for both formal and informal entertaining and overlooks the front of the property with access to the decked terrace to the rear.

An additional downstairs room, which the owners utilise as a home office, would make an ideal 3rd bedroom on ground floor. The shower room completes the downstairs accommodation. Upstairs, both of the double bedrooms feature beamed and vaulted ceilings and benefit from wardrobe and eaves storage space. Bedroom 1 is double aspect and has delightful views to both front and rear over the gardens. The family bathroom is fitted with a white suite which could be easily converted to an en suite.  The property offers potential to extend and enlarge subject to the usual conditions.

What the owners say.

We have lived here for almost 8 years and fell in love the peace and tranquillity the location offers. As I worked in London City I could be at work in about an hour from leaving the house using the various short cuts it takes under 10 minutes to walk to the train station.  Coming out though back to the countryside where all I could hear were the birds singing was blissful, and still is. We are so blessed with lovely neighbours in a community focussed road and having no through traffic has always been wonderful as my child could play on the road with his friends. Now he is older they play in the woods and on the common which are a minutes walk from the front door. The house is light, bright and spacious and the accommodation means that all three of us can be independent in our own space as well as being a family. Despite the garden having a north/East face its surprisingly bright even in winter and in the summer the garden is a delight. We will be hard pushed to find something that offers all this house does

Given that the nominal growth rate in this postcode district (KT24) has been about 15.1% over the last 5 years, it would be reasonable to assume that this is dynamic local economy and housing market. Property price growth in this area has significantly exceeded growth in earnings and the national average house price growth, and so the likelihood of it continuing will be dependent upon price earnings ratio, as well as investment by developers and local authorities in continually upgrading local infrastructure, schools, in addition to the continued strength of the local and national economies and any other economies upon which the area depends.
