Full description

Thought to date back to the Tudor period with later Jacobean and Victorian additions, this delightful and generously proportioned home is arranged over three floors.

The house retains great character throughout with exposed timbers and beams and attractive open fireplaces. The spacious double drawing room has a wealth of exposed beams, an open feature fireplace and an impressive original staircase, while the double aspect sitting room also benefits from an attractive open fireplace and views over the delightful gardens. The good-sized kitchen/breakfast room offers an oil-fired Aga, a Belfast sink, space for a table for informal dining and access to a rear lobby with walk-in larder, pantry, cloakroom, laundry room and access to the gardens.

The bedroom accommodation is arranged over two floors, with most rooms enjoying far-reaching views over the grounds and surrounding countryside. On the first floor there is a spacious dual aspect principal bedroom, a substantial dressing room and bathroom with freestanding bath and two further well-proportioned front aspect bedrooms, one currently configured as an office.

The property's two remaining bedrooms, a good-sized study/sitting room and a family bathroom are on the second floor, ideal for self-contained guest accommodation.

Approached via a five-bar gate, the sweeping gravel driveway to the house provides ample private parking to the front of the property and access to the detached double garage. The cottage-style garden extends to the front and side of the property and is laid to mostly level lawn with a number of established trees and shrubs, including an apple tree on the approach to the house. Adjacent to the kitchen is a paved patio area ideal for outside entertaining, with a decked terrace at the end of the garden having lovely views across the surrounding countryside. EPC-E

The A3 is easily accessible at Brook, Milford and Hindhead with good road links to London and the south coast.

Delightful period home with farmland views

Why live in Haslemere?

Haslemere’s close proximity to London has made this lovely town hugely popular with commuters – Waterloo is just 49 minutes by train and travelling by car is just as easy with the A3 on our doorstep.

However, its greatest allure is our beautiful properties; we have more than 100 listed buildings in Haslemere alone making this a commuter town with a strong sense of history. You’ll find substantial detached family homes, generous gardens and attractive apartments with amazing views over the beautiful English countryside. Haslemere as an area is blessed with excellent state and private schooling, catering for all ages through to sixth form.

You’ll find a good selection of places to eat and drink in the town, from pubs and cafés to independent restaurants and popular chains with plenty more cosy pubs to be discovered in the surrounding villages. There’s an interesting mix of convenience shops and quirky independent boutiques and a monthly Farmers’ Market while the biannual Haslemere Charter Fair that’s been running since 1393 brings the High Street to life with live music and fairground style attractions. 

The countryside around Haslemere is breathtaking. The Devil’s Punchbowl near Hindhead is a great place to explore and the deep curve of the natural amphitheatre gives you some amazing views of the local landscape.

If you’re into sports you’ll certainly love it here, not only is Haslemere surrounded by beautiful countryside ideal for outside pursuits, there’s the well-equipped Haslemere Leisure Centre’s facilities, numerous outstanding sports clubs, including Haslemere Tennis Club, various cricket teams, hockey and rugby. Haslemere Henry Adams continue to involve themselves in the local community through schemes with local schools and of course this year (2019) with the Haslemere Hounds.
