Pamplins is in a wonderful peaceful position, on a very quiet country lane in a highly sought after location, on the fringe of the village, with fine views over rolling countryside. The village itself is very attractive with a church, C of E primary school, village shop/Post Office and public house. The market towns of Farnham and Alton are close by, offering a wide range of shopping and recreational facilities. There are mainline stations at Bentley (from 1 hour) and Farnham (from 53 minutes) both providing a service to London Waterloo. The A31 provides fast access to the A31, M3 (Junc. 5) and the national motorway network as well as Heathrow, Gatwick and Southampton airports. The surrounding countryside offers some wonderful opportunities for walking, riding and cycling. There are a number of good schools in the area including Bentley village primary school, Alton Convent, Frensham Heights, Lord Wandsworth College and Edgeborough. The historic cities of Guildford and Winchester are 15 and 23 miles away respectively.
Built we understand between 1750 and 1780, this unique house is of mellow brick construction, the roof being clay tiled and the attached barn being thatched. Refurbished, remodelled and extended in 2004 to an extremely high standard creating a spacious family home, blending the character of the original Georgian features with a quality, contemporary finish.
A welcoming and spacious reception hall has solid wide board Oak flooring and exposed beams. The south facing drawing room has a bay window with views over the garden, fireplace with Clearview wood-burner and door to the stone terrace, whilst the adjacent dining room is dual aspect, also with bay window and fitted with a good range of cupboards. There is a generous family room, study and magnificent vaulted converted barn with exposed beams and parquet flooring providing flexible additional reception space perhaps as a games/party room. The substantial kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a bespoke Smallbone Oak kitchen with granite and wood work surfaces, black 4 oven gas Aga, wine fridge, built in larder cupboard and ceramic tiled flooring. There are separate utility and boot rooms providing good additional storage space.
On the first floor all rooms enjoy a wonderful rural outlook over the gardens and fields beyond. The spacious master bedroom suite benefits from a dressing room and contemporary en suite bath/shower room with under floor heating. There is a separate guest suite and three further bedrooms with family bath/shower room. All rooms are well proportioned and light.
Of mellow brick, partly slate tile hung with a slate roof, the cottage has 3 bedrooms and 2 reception rooms with its own private garden, ideal for guests or relatives, or as a source of rental income (as the current owner has done for the last 10 years).
