Attractive Victorian farmhouse in tranquil setting

Location

The pretty and ancient rural hamlet of Farley Green is situated in the heart of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, some six miles to the south-east of Guildford. This sought-after location is sufficiently off the beaten track to offer the tranquillity of country living whilst being within easy reach of all necessary amenities and communications.

A short distance away, the villages of Shamley Green, Albury and Shere offer convenience shops and Post Offices for daily needs, in addition to a farm shop, café and delicatessen, churches and public houses.
Guildford offers a complete range of shopping, leisure and cultural amenities, as well as a mainline station, with a fast and frequent service into London/Waterloo, with journey times from about 35 minutes and nearby Gomshall station from about 67mins. A short distance away, the A25 provides the cross link between the main A3 and A24 radial routes between London and the coast, which in turn connect with the M25 for access to the airports and the national motorway network.

Good schools in the area include Cranleigh and Charterhouse, Duke of Kent, Hurtwood House, St Catherine's and Cranmore. Recreational opportunities include a number of golf clubs located in easy reach, polo at Ewhurst, and country sports at a number of local venues. There are good sports and leisure centres at Guildford, Cranleigh and Dorking whilst the surrounding Surrey Hills offer miles of walking and riding directly from the house.

Description

Mayor House once formed part of the adjoining Albury Estate, until it was sold into private ownership and subsequently purchased by our clients family in 1978.

This attractive stone flint house is well set up an extended wooded track into open countryside with pleasant views out across its grazing land. The property itself is in need of some modernisation with potential for enlargement subject to the receipt of appropriate planning consent having last been extended in 1961.

Ground floor accommodation is uniform in its arrangement, typical of the Victorian period with the useful addition of later extension adding an enlarged kitchen, internal double garage/workshop and grooms accommodation.

First floor accommodation has five bedrooms (three en suite) and allows for either a single dwelling or attached self contained grooms accommodation with kitchenette and separate access, as was stipulated in the original planning consent granted in 1961.

The adjoining equestrian facilities are well positioned to the house itself creating a useful working yard with 10 stables and associated out buildings close by. Whilst the property itself is in a relatively secluded rural position it is not without the comfort of neighbouring properties.
The land has an SBI number and registration to the Single Payment Scheme. There is immediate access onto a BOAT (Byway Open to All Traffic) from the property linking it to a network of Bridleways from which to hack out.

Square Footage: 3,428 sq ft
Acreage: 56 Acres
