About this property

A handsome, substantial and beautifully appointed individual detached family house standing in an exceptional location with magnificent rural views.

The house was designed to take full advantage of the long views and has been carefully improved over the last year or so with skill and attention to detail to create an outstanding family home. The outlook and overall feeling of light and space is immediate with a very spacious reception hall with travertine flooring, herringbone brick fireplace with a wood burning stove and a galleried landing.

The bright and well proportioned accommodation includes a stunning open plan kitchen/family room with travertine flooring and bi-folding doors opening out to the garden. A bespoke kitchen, with integrated appliances and six ring electric range, is set around a large island with granite and wood work surfaces. This is a wonderful room extending to in excess of 34' / 10.5m. The living accommodation is further complemented by a bright and airy sitting/dining room with a roof lantern and bi-folding doors opening out to the rear garden. There is a study with a fireplace and a wood burning stove together with double doors to the garden as well as a TV room/Snug which could be utilised as an occasional ground floor bedroom depending upon individual need.

The five bedrooms are set around a perfect vaulted galleried landing allowing for long views to the front and rear and space for a library area. Of note, the principal bedroom has an en suite bath / shower room and is approached via a private staircase from the half landing. There are four further bedrooms, three with en suite facilities and a further separate shower room.

Of note, there is planning permission to extend the utility room and to extend the Veranda across of the whole of the south-eastern façade. There is also planning permission for two sets of spiral staircases off the first-floor landing to enable additional accommodation to be created to the second floor, if required. (Ref:39620/011 dated 18 May 2023).

The design of the house includes CAT6 data cabling which together with modern gas fired central heating, heat recovery and ventilation system and double glazed windows has created a very comfortable and efficient family home with breath-taking rural views.

Outside
The gardens and grounds are a very special feature of the house and were especially landscaped to take full advantage of the south-east aspect and amazing views to the rear. The house is approached via a pair of five bar gates and a shingle driveway providing ample parking and access to a detached double garage. An external staircase leads to a studio/office/gym above – ideal as a home office/hobby room. There are two timber sheds and a log store to the side of the house.

The formal garden to the rear is mainly laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders set behind low ornamental walling. A broad paved terrace provides an ideal outdoor seating/entertaining area. The formal garden extends into an area of paddock anchored by a beautiful oak tree at the far end.

Situation
The house occupies a rarely available and exceptional elevated position with stunning views towards the North Downs and the Wey Valley within the Parish of Shalden and standing opposite open farmland in-between the villages of Froyle and Shalden about 1½ miles to the north of the historic market town of Alton. The surrounding countryside provides opportunity for many country pursuits. The historic market town of Alton has a good range of high street shops, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, M&S Simply Food, weekly and specialist markets, schooling for all age groups including Alton School, Eggar’s, Amery Hill and Alton College as well as a sports centre, two outlying golf courses and a mainline station to London Waterloo.
