Full description

Tenure: Freehold

History exudes throughout from the oak beams to the walls and ceilings, to the inglenook fireplace in the drawing room and old bread oven in the dining room. The three reception rooms are generous in size with an abundance of natural light. There is also an attractive galley kitchen with an oil-fired Aga.

Hidden behind an original dark oak door is a staircase leading up to the first floor, accommodating three double bedrooms, the principal being one with an en suite bathroom and stunning views towards the fields and lake. A notable feature of the room is an iron spiral staircase leading up to another impressive spare room and further study/5th bedroom. These rooms, including a family bathroom, can be accessed via a separate staircase from the main landing.

A superb feature of the property is the converted outbuilding which is currently used as an artist’s studio. The owners have taken much care and attention in making this a very special room which includes a star lit vaulted ceiling, kitchenette, shower room and a bespoke oak staircase leading up to the mezzanine overlooking downstairs.

There is also a substantial medieval barn with outline planning permission for residential conversion.

Woodhill Farmhouse sits in a secluded and peaceful setting on Woodhill Lane, just out side Shamley Green. This highly regarded village, with its cluster of pretty period houses, has two inns, a local store/post office and delicatessen/cafe sited around the village green.

Guildford, 5.8 miles to the north, has a comprehensive range of department stores, boutiques and restaurants, as well as excellent recreational facilities, including the Yvonne Arnaud and Electric Theatres and the Surrey Sports Park.

There are many good schools in the area, both state and private, including Shamley Green and Wonersh Infant School, Longacre Prep School, Cranleigh, Charterhouse, St Catherine’s, Prior’s Field, Tormead, Guildford High School and the Royal Grammar School.
Woodhill Farmhouse is superbly located for the walking, riding and cycling enthusiasts. Alternative nearby recreational opportunities include fishing at Willinghurst with nine well stocked lakes and there are golf courses at Bramley, Cranleigh and The West Surrey.

Woodhill Farmhouse is approached via a gravel drive with two garages and ample outside parking. The original front door is framed by an oak porch with an exemplary example of historic joinery. Mature trees, shrubs and borders encompass the property.

Outbuildings include a large medieval barn with stables and work shop. This space offers itself to converting in keeping with the adjoining studio barn. The pretty gardens comprise lawned areas surrounding the house and barns with well stocked mature beds and an old Victorian well.

In addition there are an additional 3 acres of land featuring a superb lake with summerhouse available by seperate negotiation.
