Broomfields epitomises rural life within a commutable distance of London. The property is positioned outside the attractive village of Frensham in the Surrey Hills. It is surrounded by pasture and woodland and benefits from far reaching views, particularly to the south and south-east. It is situated approximately 4 miles to the south of the market town of Farnham and 15 miles south west of the county town of Guildford. Farnham provides a comprehensive range of shops, services and recreational facilities, as does Guildford to a greater degree. There is easy access to the A3 and M3, which connect to London, the M25 and the national motorway network, as well as Heathrow and Gatwick Airports. Sporting facilities include golf at a number of local courses including Hankley, Blackmoor and Liphook. There is racing at Goodwood, Epsom, Ascot, Kempton and Sandown and easy access to National Trust owned Frensham Common offering numerous walks and rides.
Broomfields, which is not listed, principally comprises the main house, the converted Coach House, an extensive garden complete with a swimming pool, pool house and tennis court, and grounds
including woodland, pasture and a lake; in all totalling approximately 42 acres. The main house is approached by a gravel drive which is entranced offWest End Lane through a wooden gate and which is lined with mature hard woods on one side. It forks to serve both the main house and the Coach House. The main house faces south-east and is thought to be 16th Century in origin with later Victorian and more recent additions. The two story building is characterised by painted brick and rendered elevations that meet a tiled roof with a central gable. It sits in extensive formal gardens which are surrounded in parts by a stone wall and hedges.
The hall, entranced through the solid wood front door, immediately conveys the house's early origins by way of visible wood work allegedly said to date to the 16th Century. The wooden panelled floor and fireplace make a warm entrance from which the house is accessed. To the right of the hall is the spacious drawing room with its large forward-facing (south-easterly) windows. To the left of the hall is the dining room which is characterised by its wooden floor, fire place and fitted wooden cabinets. The dining room leads to the kitchen/breakfast room, a substantial open plan space that has been the centre of family life for the current owners. There are beautifully crafted wooden kitchen units and a central island. Full height windows and high vaulted ceilings make the room particularly light. Additionally there is a sitting room with a large fireplace, fitted cabinets and French windows opening to the rear of the house. A corridor from the sitting room leads to the study which is where a traditional bread oven remains visible. The study also has French Windows opening into the garden. A wine store/boot room, utility room, two downstairs loos and a downstairs bathroom service the house. The stairs rise from the hall and lead to six bedrooms on two split levels. The staircase epitomises the style of the original house with its combination of wooden and plaster work. The ensuite master bedroom, which was extended by the current owners, is open plan to incorporate a superb dressing room. The large windows and attractive forward facing (south-easterly) views leave no room for mistake that this is the master bedroom. There are four further double bedrooms, including one ensuite and one with a basin, and a family bathroom. On the lower of the split levels there is a single bedroom with an ensuite shower room. There are two attic rooms which could provide potential for a further bedroom and bathroom (subject to the necessary permissions), but which are currently used for storage. The heated swimming pool is complimented by a pool house which emulates the main house. It has a changing room, kitchenette and loo, and contains the plant room to the rear. There is a garden store on the east side of the garden and garaging is found in one side of the Coach House. The formal garden is predominately interspersed
with hard wood trees, shrubs and borders. The lawns give way to areas of long grass and are surrounded inparts by a stone wall and hedges. The hard tennis court sits at right angles to the swimming pool. The garden is large enough to enable the owners to play a range of sports. The property reaches beyond the house and gardens as described; with a substantial area of woodland and pasture. The woodland lies to the west and northwest of the house and is mixed with hard and soft woods, with a lake on its west side. Pasture lies the the west of the house. Please refer to the boundary plan.
