6 Bedroom Detached House, Pitch Hill, Ewhurst, Cranleigh, GU6 7NN

Tenure Type: Freehold

Property Description

Approached via electric double gates, the drive slopes downwards through a sandstone arch to an impressive courtyard, with a distinctly Mediterranean feel, the centrepiece of which is a magnificent Catalpa tree.

Internally, all of the elegant reception rooms take full advantage of the views. Superb beamed ceilings, wonderful sandstone arches, impressive Arts and Crafts fireplaces and oak flooring all combine to create a truly unique sense of style.

The principle bedroom suite can be found on the first floor, and includes a sitting area where the higher elevation affords an even greater opportunity to appreciate the distant views. There are five further bedrooms, linked by a charming galleried hallway with charismatic staircases at either end. On the top floor the panorama can be enjoyed at its best from the Tower Room which is well suited to its current use as a family/TV room. The guest/staff cottage has its own access, parking and garden; with its four spacious bedrooms, lending itself well to a variety of uses.

Renowned architect Oliver Hill (1887-1968) a contemporary and devotee of Edwin Lutyens, designed Marylands during his most productive pre-war period of domestic commissions.

Constructed between 1929-31 his creation is a glamorous and flamboyant fusion of Arts and Crafts and Moorish influences. The property retains many of the original features that Hill took such pains to design and source; including sandstone arches, intricate ironwork, bespoke ceramic tiling and finely crafted wooden doors.

Situated in the heart of the Surrey Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with excellent walking, cycling and riding literally on its doorstep. The property can be found on the southern slopes of Pitch Hill some 600 feet above sea level between the charming villages of Shere and Ewhurst, both of which offer daily shopping facilities.

Cranleigh with its comprehensive high street and the renowned Cranleigh School is approximately four miles away. The town of Guildford approx. 10miles NW has an excellent range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities and a main line station providing services to London Waterloo in approx. 38 minutes. The property is within easy reach of the A3, giving access to the M25 for Heathrow and Gatwick airports and the national motorway network.

The area is well served by schools, including Charterhouse; Cranmore; Cranleigh; Duke of Kent; Farlington; Pennthorpe; St Catherine's in Bramley; St Teresa's in Effingham; The Royal Grammar School, Guildford and Guildford High School for Girls.

Marylands is blessed with far-reaching southerly views across the South Downs towards the Shoreham Gap. The secluded parkland setting encompasses mature evergreens, oak and beech, and a complete exhibit from a 1930 Chelsea Flower Show, To the south there are rhododendron, azalea and camellia walks where many specimens have reached impressive proportions. The parkland nature of the gardens requires low maintenance and provides a haven for wildlife and wild flowers.

Close to the house is the heated terrace pool, and two impressive acers flank the Yorkstone steps which lead to the lawn. In addition, there is a former swimming pool in need of full renovation; plans for this have already been drawn up by distinguished architects, Robert Adam.

The courtyards provide parking for approximately 30 cars.
