It's not often woodland becomes available so close to 'home', here in the London suburbs of Surrey. Mount Wood, located at the end of The Mount has two distinct areas: To the northwest there are the mature ash and sycamore running alongside the bridleway, to the east is the area of mature woodland, again mostly sycamore and ash. Within this is the wooded centre with young trees and large shrubs grown up from the open ground of 30 years ago. Explore this area and find openings suitable to mow and create wooded glades.

Woodmansterne translates roughly as, high wood pond, it is high here a plateaux on the North Downs and historically all would have been wooded and no doubt there were ponds. This is greenbelt so the surroundings are protected and is in Reigate and Banstead District.

Boundaries:  are the edge of the bridleway, the backs of the houses and two metres from the fence on the far side of the public footpath.

Access:  a right of way is given for forestry purposes with the track maintenance according to use made from The Mount along the track to the far end.

Overage:  as the woodland is in close proximity to residential properties in the event of planning permission being given for residential development the vendor will be due 50% of the uplift in value for a period of 10 years.

“The transfer to the buyer shall contain a covenant in the following terms: ‘the Transferee(s) and their successors in title the owners and occupiers for the time being of the property hereby covenant for the benefit of the Transferor’s Retained Land to forever maintain the property as woodland and open parkland and not to develop the Property or build any structures upon the Property whatsoever. For the avoidance of doubt this covenant shall not prevent the Transferee from erecting one appropriate timber clad building for use as a wet weather workman’s shelter and toolshed together with one open sided structure for the storage of timber or firewood upon the Property"
