An extraordinary, contemporary home in third acre gardens amongst rolling, rural countryside at the heart of the Surrey Hills AONB. Completed in the last 5 years, the well-proportioned and beautifully conceived accommodation is designed to both flow and adapt internally but also to link seamlessly with the surrounding environment via sliding glazed doors and floor to ceiling windows allowing living space to extend onto expansive East and West facing terraces. The heart of the home is a fabulous kitchen dining room, flooded with natural light and fitted with a sleek, modern, German-engineered in-toto kitchen. Comprehensively fitted with a wide range of high quality Neff appliances there is plenty of space for generous dining, a separate breakfast bar area and a huge expanse of work surface. Directly overlooking the rear garden this space opens onto an adjacent dining terrace under an electrically controlled, louvered roof canopy with rain sensors allowing alfresco dining, whatever the weather. Principal reception rooms of family room and living room are separated from the kitchen via large pocket doors enabling either a more open plan, flowing lifestyle or separation into cosier, more intimate zones. Both rooms are fitted with engineered walnut flooring, a stylish Stuv wood burning stove and open onto a broad, West facing terrace with far reaching views over Greenbelt farmland. Neutrally decorated throughout to maximise the feeling of light and space the property is built with the highest of environmental standards in mind. A super-efficient EPC is achieved through use of a heat recovery system, smart construction, high quality fenestration, photovoltaic cells and rainwater harvesting system. There is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor (including the wet room) as well as the bathrooms on the first floor. Much of the house is wired for a sound system, there are programmable heating and lighting control systems, Cat6 wiring as well as wiring for electric blinds and CCTV.
Located right in the heart of the North Downs and Surrey Hills AONB, the property enjoys superb views over the surrounding countryside and is situated in a peaceful and private position on a private lane. Distinctly rural in character, this location is however only 0.7 of a mile from Gomshall village with its train station linking to both Guildford and Dorking. The immediate area provides a selection of popular pubs and tea rooms and is situated between the popular villages of Shere, Peaslake, Abinger Hammer and Holmbury St Mary. This is a verdant, sylvan and partly agricultural area within easy reach of London, heavily protected by the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Paths and bridleways are immediately at hand giving access to the North Downs providing miles of open countryside for walks, cycling and riding. The area has an excellent range of schools which include: Shere Infant School, Cranmore School, Lanesborough, St Catherines, RGS and Guildford High School. Dorking and Guildford are approximately 5.5 and 7 miles respectively and offer a large selection of shops and leisure facilities to suit most needs.
Orientated East West, the house is set perfectly to make the most of the gardens, the surrounding landscape and the sunlight from morning to evening. Gardens extend to approximately 0.34 acre and are largely level, lawned and well screened from neighbours either side. Set well back from the lane there is plenty of gravelled driveway providing parking and access to the integral garage. Simple, wired fencing to the rear provided continuous views down the garden and over the adjoining fields. Towards the end of the garden is a generous, modern garden room, ideal for use as a home office or studio.
