One of Surrey's most iconic houses.
Chapel Farm House is in one of Surrey's most sought after and recognisable village locations, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with views of the country's second oldest Cricket Green and famous pub at the front of the house, with contrasting views over the River Wey and its water meadows at the rear. The house enjoys an elevated position to make the most of its views and boasts impressive and symmetrical architecture, which has been sympathetically extended by the current owners. The gardens are beautifully maintained with sweeping lawns leading down to the river, with more intricate planting in front of the house.
Tilford is a very picturesque village in rural Surrey, situated only 2.8 miles from Farnham and 8.5 miles from Godalming. All village amenities are within walking distance, including a Lutyens village hall, a well-used village shop, a popular pub, cricket club, 'two highly rated infant/junior schools, church, tennis club, fishing, and golf. There are stunning walks through an ancient riverside bluebell wood, and walking, riding and cycling on the adjacent commons.
Chapel Farm House, with its symmetrical Regency façade and unusual chimneys, is one of Tilford's most prominent houses overlooking the Village Green. It is believed to have been built in the early 1800's, at which point the population of Tilford was rapidly increasing, possibly as a result of popular local hop growing enterprises.
Chapel Farm House is approached via a sweeping gravel drive leading from the village green through electric gates. As the gates open, the idyllic gardens, river frontage and impressive architecture of the house become immediately apparent; a real haven, privately tucked away whilst being in the heart of the village.
The impressive Jacobean-style front door opens into a welcoming entrance hall with the dining room and sitting room on either side. The dining room is elegant, spacious and light, and has some classic period features, including the central fireplace and the painted wooden panelling. The sitting room is equally as welcoming with a large working open fireplace and exposed timber beam. The cellar is also accessed from the central hall, and has been renovated offering a laundry room, wine cellar and storage space.
The hallway leads directly into the large formal drawing room, which is flooded with light from it's nearly floor to ceiling sash windows, enjoying views out over the grounds beyond. Another wonderful open fireplace provides the focal point of the room. There is a door to the terrace outside, an ideal spot for al-fresco dining.
