EXCELLENT LOCATION FOR ST THERESA'S SCHOOL: Totally remodelled "New England" home with countryside views set in grounds of just over 1 acre with far reaching country views in the Surrey Hills.


Wiltshire House occupies a semi-rural, wooded location, with walks in the area leading up to the National Trust land of Ranmore Common, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and designated Green Belt. The convenient village of Effingham is some 8.5 miles east of Guildford, and within easy reach of the A3/M25 junction at Wisley. Effingham and the local villages have an excellent range of shops for daily needs, in addition to churches, public houses and restaurants. The station at Effingham Junction offers a frequent service to London/Waterloo with journey times from 42 minutes. More extensive shopping and leisure amenities are available at Guildford and Dorking. There is a good selection of schools in the area, including St Teresa's, Lord Howard of Effingham, Glenesk, Cranmore, Downs End, and Cranleigh. There are several golf courses within easy reach, including Effingham, Wisley and The Drift.


Wiltshire House is located in beautiful countryside with superb far reaching views over adjacent paddocks and is close to Ranmore Common. Ranmore Common falls within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. One of the main draws of this area is
the spectacular countryside, much of which is owned by the National Trust and Forestry Commission, which offers great opportunities for walking. The Surrey Hills are abundant with pretty villages and thriving local communities and yet Wiltshire House is 2 miles from Effingham Village and Effingham
Junction train station is just under 4 miles away.

The four principal local towns of Dorking, Leatherhead, Cobham and Guildford provide an extensive range of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities as well as transport links to London and the South Coast.

Wiltshire House is only about 23 miles from central London and about 40 minutes by car. Junction 9 of the M25 motorway is about 6 miles to the north providing excellent east/west communications and bringing both Gatwick and Heathrow international airports to within a 30 and 40 minute drive
respectively. In addition, Effingham Junction has direct rail services to London Waterloo and Victoria.

The area is well known for its excellent schooling and the renowned St Teresa's girls school is close by while Cranmore, City of London Freemans and St John's Leatherhaed are also in the vicinity.

Wiltshire House has recently been extensively refurbished and extended and now provides spacious and modern family living. With a contemporary design of a New England shutterboard and rendered style this extensive home is approached via a long private driveway offering a high degree of privacy.

The wide hallway leads to the sitting room with a feature working fireplace. The large fully fitted kitchen with granite work tops has an excellent range of integrated appliances including two ovens, a combination oven, coffee machine, dishwasher and double fridge free freezer unit. The kitchen also has underfloor heating. The utility room is accessed from the kitchen which in turn has access to the rear garden and double garage.

The large dining/family room/conservatory runs across the back of the house and is a key feature of the house, providing a wonderfully spacious area for family living with doors to the garden.

Also from the hallway is the cloakroom and the house has two staircases to the first floor, all the bedroom suites can be accessed from either staircase. The main staircase leads up to a wide first floor landing. The master bedroom has a dressing room and en suite bathroom. There are two further double bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom and one with an en suite shower room. Both these rooms have fitted wardrobes. There are 3 further en suite bedrooms.

Externally, the grounds extend to just over 1 acre with extensive lawned areas, heated swimming pool and tennis court. The rear patio runs across the width of the house and is ideal for outdoor entertaining.
