5 Bedroom Town House, Puttenham Hill, Puttenham, Guildford, Surrey, GU3 1AH

Tenure Type: Share Of Freehold

Property Description

A generous wing of a wonderful Grade II listed country home with the most remarkable southerly views, formerly known as Beech Law and designed by HPG Maule of Forsyth & Maule. Dating from 1910 and designed and built during Maule's tenure as Headmaster of the London Architectural Association School of Architecture, the property was reputedly also home to John Jellicoe, first sea lord, later Viscount Jellicoe of Scapa and in 1920, appointed governor general of New Zealand.

Set high on the south facing chalk slope above Puttenham village and offering over 4200sqft of space, this is a fine family home with light and generously proportioned accommodation, sympathetically restored and updated to preserve its character and architectural heritage. High ceilings, latched doors, quarry tiled flooring and window sills, beautiful oak joinery including heavy framed windows, doors, flooring and staircase, fireplaces and wrought iron door furniture are evident throughout. More recently updated the property now has modern bathrooms, a wonderful Coalbrookdale Severn Multifuel stove in the dining hall and a fabulous kitchen breakfast room with french doors opening onto the terrace and gardens. Large enough to form the heart of any family home the kitchen breakfast has plenty of work space, a fine Aga, an open plan dining area, high quality hand painted kitchen units and adjacent generous family and laundry rooms. Bedrooms are over first and second floors and are well proportioned and many enjoying stunning views south over the village and Surrey Hills beyond.

Situation
Puttenham lies south of The Hog’s Back, between Guildford, Godalming and Farnham. This property is located on the southern slope of the Hogs Back above the village within easy reach of the village, its popular pub pub and infants school. Godalming is within 4.5 miles whilst the county town of Guildford is within 4 miles away providing outstanding facilities, together with a fast rail connection to Waterloo in under 40 minutes. A wide choice of schools are in the immediate vicinity including the Royal Grammar School, Guildford High School, Aldro in Shackleford, Barfield in Farnham and Prior's Field and Charterhouse in Godalming. There are several golf courses including Puttenham Heath, The West Surrey, Hurtmore, and Hankley. The village is surrounded bymany miles of open countryside including The Pilgrims Way.

Outside
Greys East is approached via electric gates leading to a gravel driveway, providing extensive parking and access to the garaging. Private gardens extend to 1.4 acres to the south and east of the house and variously offer formal lawned areas, an orchard, lightly wooded copses, a number of paved seating areas and an area of old greenhouses for which there has previously been planning consent granted (GUI 10/P/01749 - now lapsed) for a swimming pool and large pool house.

There are formal gardens directly to the south side of the house which are shared with Greys West, with lightly terraced lawns, planted beds and stone retaining walls leading down to and beyond a magnificent central pond with a fountain. These gardens are complimented by well stocked shrub borders and a fine cedar tree. There is also a strip of woodland shared with Greys West on the northern boundary. Immediately below the kitchen breakfast room there are external stairs leading down to a generous cellar.

Additional Information
Tenure

Greys East is leasehold, with the remainder of a 999 year lease from 13th September 1982. The owners of Greys East and Greys West own the freehold via a Limited Company and so too the extent of the shared gardens.
