A fine character home close to the centre of this popular village in the heart of the Surrey Hills AONB. Generously proportioned living space is over three floors and is designed so that principal rooms all enjoy wonderful views over the surrounding country gardens and adjoining paddock. Extended and modernised, the heart of the home is a fabulous kitchen breakfast with plenty of space for informal dining and relaxing. The kitchen is quadruple aspect with roof lanterns to maximise the sense of light and large bifolding doors sliding back to connect the living space with the surrounding gardens. A useful boot room, laundry and wet room are immediately adjacent, as are a bright family room and games room / ancilliary bedroom and recently fitted shower room above the garage and store. The sitting room is triple aspect with rural views, a feature fireplace and french doors opening to the gardens. Bedrooms are over the first and second floors and are all particularly generous, the master having an ensuite dressing room and refitted shower room. There is planning consent to extend the additional bedroom / games room above the garage at first floor level to provide for larger family space or a self contained annexe for ancillary living.
Within the Surrey Hills AONB Peaslake is right at the heart of this glorious countryside whilst being within easy reach of a range of amenities. A thriving community with a parish church, the renowned Hurtwood Inn pub and restaurant, a popular village school, village hall, it also has an excellent general store and Post Office. Further shopping is available at Abinger, Shere and Forest Green. Cranleigh is within 5 miles, Dorking under 7 miles and a full range of shopping, leisure and cultural amenities can be found in Guildford or Horsham. Locally, there is a railway station at Gomshall that provides access to Guildford and Gatwick Airport, whilst from Guildford and Dorking there are fast and frequent services into London Waterloo and Victoria with journey times from 35 minutes. There is a huge choice of schools in the area, including Shere Infants, Peaslake Free School, Duke of Kent, Hurtwood House, Cranleigh, St Catherine's, Charterhouse, St Teresa's and Cranmore and many more. Recreational opportunities include a number of golf clubs within easy reach and with the Hurtwood immediately accessible, some of the best walking, cycling and riding countryside in the South East available is right on the doorstep.
Gardens are a particular feature and are simply designed to reflect the rural environment. Generous, gravelled parking to the front of the house provides plenty of space for multiple cars and the possible addition of barn style garaging or car ports but principally the gardens lie to the rear. Laid to lawn and interspersed with a variety of trees, shrubs and seating areas, the formal gardens extend to an acre and are wonderfully secluded with direct views onto the adjoining 1 acre fenced paddock. There is planning granted (11/P/00837) and base laid for a stable block of two stables and a hay store.
