An elegant and substantial, state of the art country house.
The rural hamlet of Shillinglee is surrounded by farmland, set close to the Surrey/Sussex border. The villages of Chiddingfold (voted one of top 10 villages by Sunday Times) and Plaistow provide, between them, convenience shopping, churches, public houses and restaurants for day to day needs. The attractive country towns of Petworth, Godalming and Haslemere provide an excellent selection of local shops, whilst Guildford offers an extensive range of shopping and leisure facilities. Fast trains to London/Waterloo are available from Haslemere, Witley or Godalming, with journey times from 52 minutes, and the A3 trunk road at Milford provides access to London and the M25. There is a good selection of schools in the area, including Wispers, St Catherine's, Prior's Field, Charterhouse and King Edward's. The surrounding countryside offers miles of open country for walking or riding, a selection of golf courses within easy reach, and polo centred on Cowdray Park. Heathrow airport is approx 35 miles away and Gatwick airport 33 miles.
An elegant and substantial, state of the art country house.
The architecture of the property is of a Georgian style with a modern twist. Internally, the design is equally as refined but also encompasses the luxury of all the latest state of the art, modern conveniences. The house extends to 7.553 square feet and is set around a central hall with a domed atrium-style ceiling that provides natural light to all floors. The front door, with its Palladian style pillars, lit by up lighters, provides an impressive entrance into the wide hallway. There is an access panel controlling the entrance gates in the hallway and a honed marble floor. Design features and appliances: Solid oak doors Mood lighting CCTV and alarm system Air-circulation system ATI sound system (DVD/IPod/Radio/TV) Double glazed sash windows throughout LPG gas fires Under floor heating Stainless steel door furniture Marble fireplace surrounds All rooms have internet connections and data points Extensive external lighting along the drive, gardens, stables and walled garden area Ground Floor All of the rooms at Park House are well proportioned with high ceilings (approx. 3m) and exaggerated door and window heights to enhance the impression of space. There is subtle lighting throughout, in particular in the hallway where there are three sets of lights; down lighters in the ceiling, wall mounted lights and up lighters along the skirting. The Sitting Room has an LPG gas fire and a central power point in the floor, which could be useful should an incoming buyer wish to use this room as an office or a dining room. The Drawing Room has an open fire with a marble fire surround and French doors that lead out to the garden on the south east side. The office has textured wall paper and is fitted with oak cabinetry providing good storage. From this room the spiral Cellar, which holds 200 - 250 bottles, is accessed via a solid wood trap door. The kitchen is well positioned off the ha llway on the south side of the house with access to the Dining Room and out through French doors to the garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of features and appliances, including; a Calor gas range, Miele units, a warming oven, combi oven, steamer, integrated pantry, 4 sinks (one with waste disposal facility), blue granite work surfaces, Teppanyaki and BBQ grill, sub-zero fridge, secondary fridge, wine cabinet, sub-zero freezer and oak cabinetry. There is a breakfast bar and room for a dining/breakfast table. The media cupboard is accessed from the hallway. Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining room, which doubles as a family room, with marble topped built in oak units, floating shelves, a contemporary gas flamed open fire, built in television, oak floor, bi-fold doors to the kitchen and French doors to the garden. Leisure Suite and Cinema Room At the far end of the reception hall is the leisure suite, which is accessed via a glass door that can be locked for security. This part of the building resembles an atrium with floor to ceiling windows on three sides with access to the garden. The pool is made by Falcon and has a jet stream (Swim Master), blue mosaic tiles and an electric cover. There is a 6 person Nordic sauna with TV, linked to Sky, a sound system, shower room with rain shower and granite tiles and a cloakroom. Adjacent to the pool complex and accessed via a rear corridor is the gym, which has a floor to ceiling mirror, sprung wooden floor, built-in 42" plasma television, sound & lighting system and its own ventilation system. Opposite the gym is a useful utility room and a coat/shoe cupboard. At the end of the rear hall there is access to the parking area, internal access to the 3 bay garage and a back staircase leading to the cinema room. The cinema room is fully fitted with 6 reclinable leather seats with vibrating units linked to the sound system. There is a projector based screen for television, Sky and DVDs, surround sound with 9 speakers, built-in storage units, fridge and floating shelves. First Floor On the first floor the master suite occupies a commanding position on the south side of the house with views over the garden and land. French doors provide access onto the terrace. There is a dressing room with fitted cupboards and two ensuite bathrooms. The first of the bathrooms has a mosaic tiled floor, marble tiles, a carved Limestone bath and twin basins with storage beneath. The second ensuite has a steam shower with built-in seating. Each of the further 5 ensuite bedrooms has its own character and interior design carefully planned with calm and contemporary colour schemes. Above the first floor is an attic area, accessed via a loft ladder, which is holds the water tanks and provides access to the roof. To the rear of the property is a plant room, which contains controls for the air-recirculation system, Nibe ground source heating system, pressurised water system and the pool heating. Gardens & Grounds To the south, east and west of the house lie the extensive formal gardens, which were designed by the well known landscape architect, Fiona Lawrenson. These extend to approximately 1.5 acres and have wonderful views, they are also deer fenced for protection. Whilst the house has only been completed since 2007 the gardens have a range of trees and shrubs that enhance the mature setting and create interesting vistas and areas for outdoor entertaining. There is a water feature with 3 fountains and lighting, an area for vegetable planting, hedging to provide privacy and a patio/terrace that runs along the south side of the house provide the ideal setting for outdoor entertaining. The gardens extend into pasture beyond, which gives the landscape a parkland feel. Beyond, there are post and rail paddocks, ponds and areas of woodland. Hidden in amongst the woodland is an ice house, which we believe is grade II listed. To the north west of the house lies the spectacular walled garden, the walls of which are lead to believe are listed grade II. Inside the walled garden is a tarmac tennis court. This ar ea is divided by a gravel walkway, flanked by trees which are lit by up lighters.
