THE STORY

QUALITY OF LIFE

The current owner of Woodlands Ryde moved to the sought-after location some 11 years ago. "This is a wonderful place to live," he explains. "It is a private country setting, which offers stunning scenery and a superb quality of life. You can sit outside, take in the views and enjoy the peace and quiet." Chobham Common, which is the largest National Nature Reserve in the south-east of England and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), is close by. This is popular with walkers and horse-riders. "At the same time, the property is within easy reach of the M25 and M3," he adds. "It is just 20 minutes from Heathrow, 30 minutes from Gatwick and a short drive from Woking Station, with its trains into London. It is an excellent location for anyone who needs to travel for work or leisure purposes."

AN IMPRESSIVE HOUSE

Spectacular Woodlands Ryde was built approximately five and a half years ago with great attention to detail. "I wanted to build an impressive country house, somewhere that would be comfortable to live and would make the most of its surroundings," he recalls. "It was designed to offer large, light living spaces, as well as five bedrooms, all with en suite bath or shower rooms." The property, which has a ground source heat pump, was given a sleek, contemporary finish and three sets of French windows in both its drawing room and its kitchen. "This means it can be opened up on to its beautiful outside space in the summer months," he observes.

A LIFE OF LEISURE

A superb family home and an outstanding place to entertain, the luxurious house features an impressive entrance hall, which gives on to the dining room, drawing room, study and kitchen, breakfast and living room. "The kitchen is a wonderful space and is where we spent most of our time in the house," he says. There is also a ground floor cloakroom and utility room. All five bedrooms and bathrooms are situated upstairs; the master suite also has a dressing room. "The jewel in the crown of Woodlands Ryde is its swimming pool complex," the agent says. "Here there are doors opening on to the terrace, making it a wonderful place for summer parties and barbecues. The swimming pool is heated and has shower facilities. Other rooms here could be used as a gym or for other leisure purposes."
LOOKING AHEAD

As it is, Woodlands Ryde could be a fabulous place to live, she suggests. "This home is ready to move into. It would be perfect for an extended family or anyone with equestrian or outdoor interests," she says. "If new owners were considering taking it further, however, it could become even more impressive." Planning permission is in place for the barns and stables to be taken down and for a spacious new house to be built. "This would be a luxurious new home which could be finished to a high specification, offering exceptional levels of comfort," she adds.

NEW BEGINNINGS

The new property could encompass sumptuous bedroom, bathroom and dressing room accommodation, together with a self-contained annexe. It would have lavish living space, a swimming pool complex and ample parking, as well as its own garden and grounds. "Subject to the relevant planning permissions, new owners could also consider creating a basement level," she suggests. "This new house would take in the picturesque views and could either be enjoyed as a separate dwelling or could be part of a magnificent private estate of two homes within this highly desirable location."


SETTING THE SCENE

Woodlands Ryde is set in manicured, flat grounds of approximately 18 acres. The gated country estate enjoys a private road location. The current house has a detached triple garage, in-out sweeping driveway and a total of three accesses. There are currently barns and stables in the grounds, as well as annexe accommodation

WHATS NEARBY

In the High Street, many surviving half-timbered houses have been preserved and are admired by many for their 'olde worlde' charm.
Chobham is populated with a fine range of restaurants and boutique shops. Architecture of note in the High Street includes the Church
of St Lawrence Chobham which was started in about 1080 but the tower is 14th century. It was much altered in Victorian times but
there are still Norman pillars and windows inside.
Chobham Common is a 1,400-acre (6 km2) area of lowland heath. It
was formerly a freehold owned by the Earl of Onslow. It was
purchased for £1 an acre by Surrey County Council in 1966. It is
managed by Surrey Wildlife Trust for nature conservation and
informal access.
It is believed that, like other inland heaths, Chobham Common was
created when early farmers cleared the primary woodland that once
cloaked the country. This exposed and degraded the fragile soils
that underlie the site, creating the conditions favored by heathland.
Chobham Common is a National Nature Reserve.
As well as The historic town of Chobham and the delightful
Chobham Common which is popular for nature lovers, dog walkers
& horse riders, Chobham also offers a school which is located in the
high street ( St Lawrence) with private schools also in close
proximity.
There are excellent spa facilities nearby at Pennyhill Park and
Chobham and many local riding schools & stables. Chobham Golf
club or the prestigious Wentworth Golf Club are also within close
proximity. Chobham is a village and civil parish in the Borough of
Surrey Heath in Surrey, England. The village has a small high street
area, specialising in traditional trades and motor trades.
