A charming 5 bedroom family house situated in a truly spectacular location on Blackdown with magnificent distant views. The house provides very comfortable accommodation and has been beautifully maintained. The main living rooms and bedrooms are oriented to take full advantage of the elevated position and the views. The kitchen, with an Aga, has been extended to provide a large breakfast area and it links with the family room to give a relaxed and informal semi open-plan feel. The drawing room is a lovely bright triple aspect room with french doors to the rear paved terrace. Likewise, the dining room has access directly out to the garden. Upstairs, the bedrooms are all well proportioned, and the principal bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and access to a sun terrace.
Within the grounds there is a substantial outbuilding which provides garaging, a workshop, and a games room. It is thought that conversion to ancillary accommodation would be feasible subject to planning permission.
The house is situated at the top of Tennyson's Lane, and although rural in feel, it is only about 2 miles from Haslemere town centre the mainline station with a regular service to London Waterloo in under an hour.
Haslemere offers a wide range of shopping and leisure facilities and there are excellent schools locally, both in the state and private sector. Highfield, Amesbury and St Ives are very convenient, and slightly further afield, are Barrow Hills, Cranleigh, Charterhouse, Priorsfield and St Catherine’s to name but a few.
The A3 can be accessed nearby at Hindhead, and provides fast driving to London, and via the M25, both Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
The area in general is renowned for its outstanding countryside, much of which is in the ownership of The National Trust. For the walking, riding and cycling enthusiast, there are numerous paths and bridleways through this landscape.
The house occupies a superb elevated position overlooking much of its own gardens and grounds and with distant views over the Surrey and Sussex countryside, beyond National Trust owned woods and heathland, that adjoin. The grounds are a beautiful parkland with stunning rhododendron and other flowering shrubs, together with some magnificent trees. Lawns, a hard tennis court, and a delightful meadow are close to the house and the wider grounds comprise wooded hillside, descending away from the garden. In all there are 26.74 acres.
