Surrey Hills family home with far reaching views


Pond Place occupies an attractive elevated location on a private road in the village of Holmbury St Mary, between Abinger Hammer and Forest Green, lying in the heart of the Surrey Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The surrounding wooded hills are popular with walkers, cyclists and horse-riders, and the village has all the usual attributes - a green and two pubs. The nearby villages of Shere, Abinger and Forest Green offer between them a selection of shopping for daily needs, including two farm shops.

Cranleigh has a broader selection of amenities, while, for the full range of shopping, leisure and cultural facilities, Dorking and Guildford are within easy reach. Both these towns have mainline stations that provide fast and frequent services into London with journey times (from Guildford) from about 37 minutes. The A25 at Abinger connects with the A24 at Dorking for London or the south coast and also to the M25 at Leatherhead for the airports and the national motorway network.

There is a wide choice of schools within easy reach, including Belmont Preparatory, Duke of Kent, Cranleigh, St Teresa's and Hurtwood House. Recreational opportunities in the area include polo at Hurtwood Park, cricket at Abinger Hammer, golf at a number of local clubs and a choice of sport and leisure centres at Dorking, Cranleigh and Guildford.

Abinger Hammer: 1.6 miles, Dorking: 7 miles, Guildford: 8.2 miles, M25 (J10): 14 miles, Gatwick Airport: 18.5 miles (all mileages approximate)


Pond Place is an attractive and impressive house, in the Cape Cod New England style. From a gabled timber porch, the half-glazed front door opens to a spacious reception hall from which elegant stairs rise to a galleried landing. The dual aspect sitting room features a carved stone, Anglo-French Chesney fireplace and also French double doors to the terrace and garden. Two further reception rooms are arranged as dining room and study. A kitchen/breakfast room includes a range of light oak bespoke furniture, with integrated NEFF appliances, and an island unit. The remaining space is arranged as an informal dining area and the kitchen also benefits from double doors to the terrace. Off the kitchen, a utility area leads to the side door.

First floor accommodation comprises a spacious master suite, with French doors to a glass panelled Juliette balcony and an en-suite shower room. An attractive range of fitted wardrobes conceal the entrance to a walk-in wardrobe and dressing room. There is also a guest suite, third bedroom and family bathroom.

This home has been arranged to take full advantage of its elevated situation, so that the rooms benefit from panoramic views to Netley Heath and Ranmore Common on The North Downs.

The property is approached from the private lane via automatic gates with entry-phone system leading to a gravelled drive and forecourt. A detached double garage benefits from internal stairs leading to a store room with Velux roof window. From a full-width stone paved terrace, with adjacent shrub and flower borders, steps lead down to an area of lawn that slopes gently away from the house. There are spring bulbs, a variety of specimen trees and shrubs and a lily pond, the whole surrounded by hedges and trees.
