Beguiling country estate


Milford 3.9 miles (6 km); M25 / Wisley 18 miles (28km); Portsmouth 33 miles (52km); Central London 40 miles (64km) Guildford mainline station ten miles (16km) - trains to London Waterloo from 35 minutes (Distances and times are approximate).


Constructed in 1907, Milhanger was designed by the Farnham based architect Harold Falkner, who rebuilt much of that charming town. Roger Taylor, the drummer of the rock group Queen, extended the property during his tenure from 1979 to 2003, prior to selling it to the current owners in the latter year.
Sympathetically upgraded in recent years, the property retains many original features including quarry tiled floors, leaded windows, panelled walls, numerous attractive fireplaces and a superb oak staircase in the main reception hall.

Key features of the house include the elegant and stylish drawing room with impressive fireplace, the adjoining formal dining room and an attractively proportioned study with fireplace and anteroom. The library/entertainment room, 72ft x 32ft (21.9m x 9.6m), has a dramatic carved stone fireplace, recessed cinema screen and speakers and a ceiling projector mount. French doors open onto an elevated southeast facing timber deck. From the library, stairs lead down to the indoor leisure complex comprising 54ft x 35ft (16.5m x 10m) pool, Jacuzzi, gymnasium, changing room with showers and W/Cs and steam room. The pool and gymnasium also benefit from wide sliding doors to the terrace and garden.

Milhanger is ideal for entertaining on a grand scale but equally suited to more relaxed family living. The heart of the house is the spacious kitchen/breakfast room with its Aga and comfortable sitting space that opens to the large conservatory. This room has views over the gardens and beyond.

The bedroom accommodation is equally impressive, particularly the vast second floor master suite. A discreet staircase leads from the first floor to a vaulted room comprising an elegant bedroom with fireplace and ample sitting space, a semi open-plan dressing room, ensuite bathroom, and a study. Dormer windows throughout the valley side of Milhanger offer dramatic views.

On the first floor there is an oriental style ensuite guest room, five further bedrooms (one currently arranged as a computer room), two bathrooms and a W/C. For further information on the accommodation, layout and dimensions please refer to the floor plan.

Staff Cottage
A two bedroom property attached to the main house, it has a separate entrance.

Garden and Grounds
The property is approached, through an electric operated gate set on brick piers, via a long, private gravelled drive leading to a forecourt and parking area in front of the house. There is a six car open bay garage. The drive and forecourt are flanked by lawn, evergreen hedges, shrubs and many mature rhododendrons and rees. While open and spacious, there is a very pleasant, private feel. The main grounds lie mainly to the south and east of the property, including formal landscaped gardens close to the house, with terraces on different levels accessed through doors from the principal rooms.

A spur off the drive leads to a stable yard with ten loose boxes, store rooms and an all-weather manège.

Beyond the formal gardens, the remaining grounds comprise 28 acres of fenced paddocks and a variety of mixed woodland.

In all about 30 acres.

Square Footage: 17,755 sq ft
Acreage: 30 Acres
