With views over the adjoining Surrey countryside and set in a semi rural, yet convenient position, a characterful Grade II Listed former farmhouse with origins back to the fourteenth century. Extended and encased in the early nineteenth century the house has timber, brick and flint external elevations with sash to the front and camber head casements to the rear. Internally the fine oak frame is visible, as well as tied beams and deep brick fireplaces. The present owners carried out a programme of improvement some years ago, however now the property presents a marvellous opportunity for further sympathetic updating and restoration – subject to any necessary planning constraints.
Accommodation in the main house is arranged over three floors. There are four spacious reception rooms including a triple aspect Drawing Room with bar area and elegant dual aspect formal Dining Room. The Kitchen has a good range of wall and base cabinetry with an Aga and there is a separate utility room. The impressive barn style Pool Complex houses a 10 meter pool under a vaulted, beamed ceiling with doors opening on to the front and rear gardens and there is a seating area with bar, a built in bbq, changing facilities, a shower and steam room. The first floor is given over to four bedrooms which are served by four bathrooms (three ensuite). The master bedroom suite enjoys a double aspect with a generous ensuite bathroom and separate dressing room. The second floor has two attic bedrooms.
