Normanscourt forms part of a very elegant and most impressive late Victorian manor house which occupies an elevated position with panoramic far reaching views to the south and east and is set at the end of a long wooded drive. The house retains a great deal of character with high ceilings, natural wood doors, wonderful fireplaces and a great deal of locally sourced Scots Pine herring bone parquet flooring, along with smoked French oak boarding. The classic red brick external elevations are relieved by stone mullion windows under a slate roof which has been completely renewed. The recently fitted kitchen/dining room is a real talking point, with classic hand painted units, central island/dining area, with unique and striking granite work surfaces. Fitted with an excellent range of appliances. The house provides a great deal of flexibility with five bedrooms to the first floor including two en-suites, along with a ground floor bedroom also with en-suite facilities. Each of the en-suite shower rooms have under floor heating and the property benefits from mains gas fired central heating. There is a very useful cellar with good head height and purpose built brick wine store. Of particular note is the vast loft space which has planning consent for conversion into further bedrooms, new velux windows have already been installed (WA/2011/1101). The main reception room and kitchen take full advantage of the views as well as having doors opening out to the garden. N.B This property has a flying freehold.
Situated in the heart of the Surrey countryside, the house is surrounded by many miles of woodland and common land with a multitude of footpaths and bridleways. The valley of the River Wey runs just to the south and east of the house and within half a mile there is a local pub. The popular villages of Elstead and Tilford are approximately 2 miles away offering good day to day needs with local shops, pubs and restaurants and Farnham town is about 4 miles to the west offering a more comprehensive range of shopping and leisure facilities. There is a mainline station at Farnham (Waterloo within the hour) and at Milford (approx 6 miles). There is good access onto the A3 linking with the M25 and London's airports and the south coast. The surrounding area is well served with schools for all age groups.
The property is approached via a long tarmacadam driveway which leads up to the house opening onto a gravelled forecourt providing extensive parking for a number of cars. There is a detached timber double garage with adjoining gymnasium which is fully lined and has power and light and telephone points and this could easily be used as a home office. Immediately adjoining the back of the house there is an ironstone terrace. The garden is predominantly lawned, interspersed with mature trees and shrubs. There is a large raised timber building with power and light as well as a useful garden shed and greenhouse.
