Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A truly unique country estate which exudes an informal and idyllic charm. The main house is approached over the long sweeping drive, passing through open pasture and parkland grounds, surrounding the house and affording a rare and very special setting. External elevations and internal features are of enormous character with abundant exposed oak, both original and reclaimed; open log fires; and exposed brick walls and chimney breasts. The floors are wood block and crafted oak boards, and there is impressive joinery and notable oak doors. The interior design throughout gives warmth and an atmosphere of relaxed informality.

Detached from the house, but close by, there is a converted 2 bedroom period barn of brick and timber construction which is ideally suited to provide comfortable guest accommodation. It also contains an estate office and substantial log store.

Extensive terraces surround the house for summer living and dining.
A wisteria and laburnum clad 'cloister walk' leads from the formal gardens to the swimming pool and leisure complex which comprises a 40'x 20' indoor pool with cover, together with sauna, changing rooms, pilates studio, gym, and full sized snooker room. Just outside there is a boules pitch with its own pavilion. There is also a tennis court within the grounds.

Sitting within its own cottage garden, detached, and well separated from the buildings of the main house, there is a charming 4 bedroom cottage. This lies just beyond the garaging for 5 cars.

Further outbuildings comprise the run of brick garden sheds which are close by the notable walled organic vegetable garden with fruit cage and 3 greenhouses. There is also a secure compound for hens. Further afield there are 3 agricultural barns.

The wider grounds are a mix of farmland, ponds, woodland, and magnificent long established parkland containing mature trees many of which are believed to be over 100 or even 200 years old. Contained within this spectacular and picturesque setting lies a cricket pitch with a fine fully fitted pavilion.

In all there are approximately 114.7 acres (46.4 ha).

Situation

The estate is located only about 1 mile from the attractive village of Chiddingfold with its picturesque village green, church, public houses and shops. More comprehensive facilities are found at Cranleigh (7.5 miles) and Guildford (12 miles).
