Believed to have been built in 1924 by the Rhodes family who were prolific builders of substantial family houses in Haslemere at that time. This striking detached family house with part timbered, part brick and part tile hung elevations with leaded light windows beneath a tiled roof, enjoying an elevated position with far reaching views towards the North Downs. From a spacious central hallway doors lead to the main reception rooms and a downstairs cloakroom. The triple aspect sitting Room has a central fireplace with an inset open stove, this spectacular room is wood panelled and is flooded with light. For formal entertainment there is a separate dining room with views and further complemented with an original fire place with copper facade. Adjacent is beautifully re fitted kitchen/breakfast room, steps lead down to a later addition of a large conservatory which in turn gives access to a family room, hobbies room and study, although on lower ground floor level, can be approached via a staircase from either the dining room or kitchen there are separate doors from the garden; there is therefore scope for annexe or separate office accommodation. The first floor is of equal merit providing four large bedrooms, the main bedroom has a beautifully fritted en suite bathrooms whilst the three further bedrooms are served by a family bathroom. From the landing access is gained to a large loft that subject to the necessary consents could be converted into further accommodation. The practical yet versatile accommodation makes this a very interesting house with a great outlook and an internal inspection is strongly recommended.
