Located high up in the pretty hamlet of Sandhills on the outskirts of Witley, the property has fine far reaching views towards Blackdown and beyond to the South Downs. The local rail station at Witley is within 0.5 of a mile and offers a regular service to London with trains taking just under one hour. A faster service is provided from Godalming station around 5 miles away with services taking around 45 minutes. Witley has convenient shopping for daily needs, whilst at nearby Milford there is an excellent farm shop and Godalming offers a wide range of amenities, including shops, banks, restaurants and a sports centre. Communications are excellent with the A283 connecting with the A3 at Milford, which in turn joins the M25 at Wisley for access to the airports and the national motorway network. The area is blessed with a wide choice of schools, including Rodborough and King Edward's, Aldro, Barrow Hill, Charterhouse, St Hilary's and St Catherine's. The area is surrounded by the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Nearby Witley and Milford Commons are National Trust land and offer a range of rural activities and a visitor centre. Recreational opportunities include golf at a number of clubs within easy reach and miles of open country for walking, cycling and riding.

Description

The house has retained much of its original character and charm, especially in the principal reception rooms with large Victorian bay and French windows. The entrance porch and hall were added in recent years to provide access to the first and second floors without encroaching into the reception space and to allow for a separate guest cloakroom. This hall leads onto the drawing room with its fabulous bay window and access onto the front lawn garden. This room has a pleasant symmetry with a wonderful ornate fireplace to its centre. The drawing room breaks onto a separate dining room again, with a large open fireplace, which in turn flows comfortably into the kitchen with pantry cupboards. This dining room once formed the ballroom to the original house and as such has exceptionally high barrelled ceilings. This room has two large timber framed windows to the side accentuating the rooms magnificent volume. The kitchen has a separate area for informal dining and is fitted with a door to a large utility room providing access to the rear courtyard.

On the first floor are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom with dressing room has far reaching views, it is substantial in size and could be adapted to accommodate a bathroom en suite, if required.
On the second floor there are three double bedrooms and a second family bathroom. These rooms all have high ceilings for a third floor and in the majority retain their decorative fireplaces. Bedroom six is currently used as an study and additional sitting room but would make an ideal play room for older children being both light and spacious with its vaulted ceiling.

The front and side gardens are largely to a gentle sloping lawn bordered by mature flowering shrubs and a shore of woodland. The lawn extends along the entirety of the drive with a gate at the bottom of the garden leading directly onto the Greensand Way.

Square Footage: 4,280 sq ft
