Please click on VIRTUAL TOUR to see the aerial video of Park House with additional information about the house and location.

Park House occupies a peaceful rural position about 5.5 miles to the East of Haslemere, in between the villages of Chiddingfold and Plaistow on the West Sussex/Surrey border. Chiddingfold is considered one of the best villages in Surrey (voted in top 10 UK villages in Sunday Times 2012). The area is renowned for its natural beauty and its easy accessibility to London (45 miles) and the South Coast (23 miles).


Park House sits in beautiful parkland with mature trees and several ponds. The equestrian facilities are separate from the main house. Set within the walled garden they are close enough for convenience but far enough away to afford the house complete privacy.

Description

Park House was designed by the current owners with Heritage architects and built in 2007. The architecture of the property is of a Georgian style with a modern twist. Internally, the design is equally as refined but also encompasses the luxury of all the latest state of the art, modern conveniences. The house extends to 7.553 square feet and is set around a central hall with a domed atrium-style ceiling that provides natural light to all floors. The front door, with its Palladian style pillars, lit by up lighters, provides an impressive entrance into the wide hallway. There is an access panel controlling the entrance gates in the hallway and a honed marble floor.

Ground Floor
All of the rooms at Park House are well proportioned with high ceilings and exaggerated door and window heights to enhance the impression of space. There is subtle lighting throughout, in particular in the hallway where there are three sets of lights; down lighters in the ceiling, wall mounted lights and up lighters along the skirting. The Sitting Room has an LPG gas fire and a central power point in the floor, which could be useful should an incoming buyer wish to use this room as an office. The Drawing Room has an open fire with a marble fire surround and French doors that lead out to the garden on the south east side. The office has textured wall paper and is fitted with oak cabinetry providing good storage. From this room the spiral Cellar, which holds 200 – 250 bottles, is accessed via a solid wood trap door. The kitchen is well positioned off the hallway on the south side of the house with access to the Dining Room and out through French doors to the garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of features and appliances, including; a Calor gas range, Miele units, a warming oven, combi oven, steamer, integrated pantry, 4 sinks (one with waste disposal facility), blue granite work surfaces, Teppanyaki and BBQ grill, sub-zero fridge, secondary fridge, wine cabinet, sub-zero freezer and oak cabinetry. There is a breakfast bar and room for a dining/breakfast table. The media cupboard is accessed from the hallway. Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining room, which doubles as a family room, with marble topped built in oak units, floating shelves, a contemporary gas flamed open fire, built in television, oak floor, bi-fold doors to the kitchen and French doors to the garden.

Leisure Suite and Cinema Room
At the far end of the reception hall is the leisure suite, which is accessed via a glass door that can be locked for security. This part of the building resembles an atrium with floor to ceiling windows on three sides with access to the garden. The pool is made by Falcon and has a jet stream (Swim Master), blue mosaic tiles and an electric cover. There is a 6 person Nordic sauna with TV, linked to Sky, a sound system, shower room with rain shower and granite tiles and a cloakroom. Adjacent to
the pool complex and accessed via a rear corridor is the gym, which has a floor to ceiling mirror, sprung wooden floor, built-in 42” plasma television, sound & lighting system and its own ventilation system. Opposite the gym is a useful utility room and a coat/shoe cupboard. At the end of the rear hall there is access to the parking area, internal access to the 3 bay garage and a back staircase leading to the cinema room. The cinema room is fully fitted with 6 reclinable leather seats with vibrating units linked to the sound system. There is a projector based screen for television, Sky and DVDs, surround sound with 9 speakers, built-in storage units, fridge and floating shelves.

First Floor
On the first floor the master suite occupies a commanding position on the south side of the house with views over the garden and land. French doors provide access onto the terrace. There is a dressing room with fitted cupboards and two ensuite bathrooms. The first of the bathrooms has a mosaic tiled floor, marble tiles, a carved Limestone bath and twin basins with storage beneath. The second ensuite has a steam shower with built-in seating. Each of the further 5 ensuite bedrooms has its
own character and interior design carefully planned with calm and contemporary colour schemes. Above the first floor is an attic area, accessed via a loft ladder, which is holds the water tanks and provides access to the roof. To the rear of the property is a plant room, which contains controls for the air-recirculation system, Nibe ground source heating system, pressurised water system and the pool heating.

Gardens & Grounds
To the south, east and west of the house lie the extensive formal gardens, which were designed by the well known landscape architect, Fiona Lawrenson. These extend to approximately 1.5 acres and have wonderful views, they are also deer fenced for protection. Whilst the house has only been completed since 2007 the gardens have a range of trees and shrubs that enhance the mature setting and create interesting vistas and areas for outdoor entertaining. There is a water feature with 3 fountains and lighting, an area for vegetable planting, hedging to provide privacy and a patio/terrace that runs along the south side of the house provide the ideal setting for outdoor entertaining. The gardens extend into pasture beyond, which gives the landscape a parkland feel. Beyond, there are post and rail paddocks, ponds and areas of woodland. Hidden in amongst the woodland is an ice house, which we believe is grade II listed. To the north west of the house lies the spectacular walled garden, the walls of which are lead to believe are listed grade II, which pertains to the property’s former inclusion as part of the Shillinglee Estate. Inside the walled garden is a tarmac tennis court, the manège and the equestrian facilities. This area is divided by a gravel walkway, flanked by trees which are lit by up lighters.

Equestrian Facilities
The equestrian facilities, which are altogether separate from the main house, are contained within the walled garden. They were used by the New Zealand Olympic squad for training in the run up to the 2012 Olympic Games. Whilst extensive, they are also flexible and could potentially provide a source of additional income or be turned into other facilities, subject to planning. The state of the art stable yard was designed by the current owners for private use and completed in 2010. The design deliberately encompasses materials such as clay tiles and bricks which blend in with its grade 2 listed walled setting. It comprises; a brick yard with stabling for 10 horses. The loose boxes are 12x12 in size with the exception of two larger foaling boxes. All of the boxes are rubber lined and have Monarch doors and automatic drinkers. The feature day room has kitchen facilities, views and access to the terrace in front of the outdoor school. The office, has facilities for television and video screenings. There is a kitchen with built-in units, a tack room with sink, laundry room with commercial washing machines, drying room, two rug stores, wash area with solarium, feed store and surround sound radio (in the yard and the school). There is a CCTV system for added security. Behind the stable yard is a lorry park, lorry wash area, machinery stores and two wooden isolation stables. The outdoor school measures 60x40 and has a sand and gel mixture surface and speakers for the sound system. There is a Monarch, 6 horse, covered horse walker. The large machinery barn opposite the stable yard houses an office, WC and has double doors at both ends. Behind the barn there are numerous storage rooms. In total there are 8 post and rail paddocks plus an additional ‘turn out’ paddock, all of which have water.

Cottages
There are two grooms’ cottages, each extending to approximately 600 sq ft and comprising; two bedrooms, kitchen, living room and a bathroom. One has gas central heating and the other has electric, both have wood burning stoves in the living areas. There is planning approval for these buildings to be replaced by brick built cottages – for information please refer to planning application ref: PS/11/02564-FUL
