Communications are good with ready access to the A3 at Hindhead connecting London and the coast and linking with the M25 at Wisley for the airports. Lying equi-distant between Farnham and Haslemere, there is a choice of fast and frequent services into London with journey time from Haslemere of around 50 minutes. There is a wide choice of state and private schools including The Royal School at Hindhead, Amesbury, Salesian College, St Edmund's, Barrow Hills, King Edwards at Witley, Charterhouse, and Priors Field among many others. Recreational and sporting opportunities include golf at a number of clubs in the area including Hankley Common, The Sands at Farnham, Old Thorns at Liphook, Cowdray Park and Goodwood. There is also racing at Fontwell Park, polo at Midhurst, racing and flying at Goodwood, shooting at Bisley and sailing at Frensham and Chichester. In addition, the surrounding area offers miles of superb countryside for walking and riding, directly from the house if desired, as well as hundreds of pretty lanes with country pubs waiting to be explored.

Description

Description: Stoneyside is a substantial and impressive contemporary country house in the classic Arts and Crafts style with its finely detailed brickwork, exposed oak framing, open eaves, tall feature chimneys and gabled roof. Internally the Arts and Crafts emphasis on quality and functionality continues but with a distinctly 21st century feel. The property has been constructed to exacting standards and with fastidious attention to detail whilst employing the most up to date materials and building practices.

• Electrically operated secure steel and cedar gated entrance with video.
• Argon filled and toughened double glazing throughout
• Under-floor heating through all ground floor
• Zoned and individual room thermostats
• CAT 6 cabling to all major rooms
• Hand-crafted timber framing by Frensham oak-wrights
• Light oak joinery throughout

On entering Stoneyside, the impressive recpetion hall speaks immediately of quality and attention to detail. Full height windows to the front fill the space with light whilst ceramic tiles in a limed oak design extend throughout the ground floor bouncing the light around to create a wonderful sense of space. A cleverly engineered light oak and glass staircase appears to float between the floors especially when seen against the fully glazed dining room wall behind. Beyond the hall, flexible and free-flowing reception areas with garden access from all rooms are ideal for entertaining.

Double doors from the hall open into the vast triple aspect drawing room with its attractive carved limestone fireplace and hearth with fitted Charnwood 'Island 2' woodburning stove.French windows lead to the terrace and garden whilst internal double doors lead to the dining room, which benefits from full width bi-fold doors to the terrace. The third reception room is ideally suited to use as a study, media room or cosy snug according to individual needs.

Kitchen / Breakfast room: This vast and simply stunning space will surely become the heart of the family home. The bespoke kitchen is superbly equipped with its array of cleverly thought-out storage solutions, preparation areas, and integrated appliances under white Silestone surfaces. These include separate fan and steam ovens, induction hob, microwave oven, coffee maker, instant boiling water tap, wine cooler, dish-washer and cavernous fridge freezer. The central island unit includes a useful breakfast bar while the remainder of the room provides ample space for informal family dining and relaxation. No less than four sets of full height bi-fold doors open wide to create a truly 'outside - inside' feeling and allow unfettered access to the secluded 'courtyard' area in addition to the main south-facing garden and terrace. Off the kitchen the property also benefits from a very generous and well- appointed utility / boot/ dog room with garden access and ample space for outdoor clothing and washer/dryer machines.

Upstairs, the superb master suite benefits from a spacious south and east facing balcony. The space includes well-thought-out His and Her dressing areas with an excellent range of well-appointed hanging storage and shelving plus Her luxury bath and shower room plus His 'wet-room' style shower area. Four further spacious double bedrooms all benefit from en suite shower rooms and lovely garden views.

The accommodation of Stoneyside is well laid out and is illustrated on the floor plans included in this brochure.

Gardens and Grounds: The property is approached from the lane via a pair of electrically operated steel and cedar wood gates with video-phone system. These open onto a long sweeping drive of 'Dove grey' Cotswold stone that leads up to the spacious forecourt with parking/turning space for several cars. Here a three bay timber building provides two single garages, a workshop/store and a log store with a room above. Brick steps with concealed LED lighting lead up to the front door between brick raised beds with a variety of shrubs and flowers. Paths lead around both sides of the building to the south-facing paved terrace beyond which the garden is landscaped to two areas of level lawn with sloping banks rising towards the boundary. The garden area has been carefully landscaped and now needs an enthusiastic gardener or plants-person to come along and create something really special.

A very short walk beyond the boundary into the National Trust heathland will reward the effort with stunning panoramic views over the Devil's Jumps Valley, The Flashes and almost as far as Frensham Pond. In all about 4 acres.

Square Footage: 4,880 sq ft
