Tenure: FreeholdGU10 3AF. The Wells sits at the end of a long drive, and is a most interesting detached period home, built, we believe in the late 19th century. The house has been extended in more recent times to provide very well proportioned and versatile living accommodation, with surprisingly spacious ground and first floor bedroom accommodation. The house has immense character and charm with a combination of brick and stone construction, expose herringbone wood block flooring throughout most of the ground floor and internal oak doors. From the dining room and sitting room there is a lovely outlook over the courtyard with the heated swimming pool and grounds beyond. From every window there is an unspoilt outlook over the gardens. The first floor landing has a mezzanine gallery, which overlooks the kitchen with its 'old pine' cabinet with wooded work surfaces and gas Aga.
Tucked away at the end of a private drive, the house is conveniently situated approximately 2 miles to the south of Farnham and is surrounded by many miles of open countryside. Much of the garden backs on to the extensive grounds of Edgeborough School. The surrounding area boasts many miles of unspoilt countryside, most of it under the ownership of the National Trust and there are numerous opportunities for walking and riding at nearby Frensham ponds, Hankley Common and Bourne Woods. There is sailing at Frensham ponds and golf at Hankley and Hindhead.
Approximately 2 miles to the south of Farnham, the house is well placed for access at Hindhead on to the A3 London/Portsmouth road and the A31 at Farnham giving good access to the M3, M25 and London airports.
The Georgian town of Farnham provides a comprehensive range of shops, pubs and restaurants as well as good local facilities and a mainline station to Waterloo within the hour. The surrounding area is well served with both state and private schools for all age grounds.
Outside immediately adjoining the house is a sheltered swimming pool with adjacent pool/guest house and double doors from the dining room open out onto a wonderful vine clad pergola, with barbecue area adjacent to the pool. Of particular note are the extensive brick outbuildings with great potential for an annexe or office. The gardens are truly delightful, completely surrounding the house, which is tucked away at the end of a private driveway, with many walled areas providing secret gardens with rose clad pergolas and pathways leading to private 'rooms' and further expanses of lawn. Two large glasshouses adjoin one of the high orchard walls, and the whole extends to approximately 2.5 acres.
