Full description

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. Extended throughout the years since and 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 has a dramatic carved stone fireplace, recessed cinema screen and speakers and a ceiling projector mount. French doors open onto an elevated south east facing timber deck. From the library, stairs lead down to the indoor leisure complex comprising 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. 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 discrete 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, en suite bathroom, and a study. Dormer windows throughout the valley side of Milhanger offer dramatic views. On the first floor there is an oriental style en suite guest room, five further bedrooms (one currently arranged as a computer room), two bathrooms and a W/C.

The property is approached, through an electrically 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 trees. 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.


From London or Guildford follow the A3 south towards Portsmouth. About five miles south of Guildford pass the exit for Milford and the A283. After three further miles, take the slip road to Thursley and Bowlhead Green. At the top of the slip road turn left and immediately left again onto French Lane, parallel to the A3. After about 150 yards, the entrance to Milhanger is on the right hand side.
