Offering a wealth of character and charm having been greatly improved in recent years by the present owner, Homes estate agents are delighted to bring to market this most individual, cottage style detached home, set in the most glorious gardens of 2/3 of an acre.
This wonderful home is situated on Grayshott Road in Headley Down, opposite The Land of Nod, as well as being a short distance form Ludshott Common and Waggoners Wells. The locality is perfectly suited to enable placements at outstanding local schools, access to the A3 roadway and a mainline train station on the London Waterloo/Portsmouth line.
On arrival, one is welcomed into the grounds via a gated entrance with a good area of driveway which in turn leads to a detached tandem garage. The front garden is screened by a mature hedgerow as well as trees, an area of lawn and numerous flower and shrub borders including beautiful verbenas, camelias, acer, azaleas, rhododendrons, and ornamental pond.
A covered porch leads into a lobby area, which in turn leads into a rather splendid reception hall, currently being utilised as a music room, with grand piano in situ. A beautifully crafted, bespoke country style kitchen/diner fits perfectly with the style of this home. The kitchen has a solid and usable working island as well as many wall and floor cupboards. To the side of the kitchen is a lobby area and downstairs cloakroom. There is also a side doorway, which in turn can lead to the rear of the garage area, which could make a perfect utility area.
The handsomely proportioned rooms at the rear of the property have only marginally been updated by the present owner and will most likely require further improvement. These rooms comprise, a triple aspect sitting room, with wooden floors and French style doors to the garden. There is a large dining room which enjoys the spectacular garden views. To the side of the dining room is a charming garden room/conservatory.
On the first floor, four outstanding double bedrooms are offered, with the larger two being set at the rear of the house, enabling great privacy as well as wonderful garden views and to the surrounding countryside. An authentic, yet modern family bathroom is situated to the side of the house. For those desiring a further wash room facility, our client has made provisions for an en-suite to be added into the principal bedroom if required.
The south facing rear garden is a real joy to view. Great thought and creative approach to suitable plantation is immediately evident. There is a large expanse of lawn, interspersed with magnolia, buddleia, acer, azaleas, rose bushes, witch hazel, viburnum, as well as a natural grass and wildflower area, which includes a wildlife pond. Also in the garden is a large shed and an expansive woodstore area. The whole garden is exceptionally private, fully enclosed and measures 0.64 acre overall.
Viewing appointments are strictly by prior arrangement through Homes estate agents.
The property is moments away from National Trust land at Ludshott Common, with endless miles of walking, cycling and horse-riding possibilities. The village has a small selection of convenience stores as well as a fuel station. A further range of services can be found in the adjoining village of Headley. These include a newsagent, a delicatessen, a beauty salon as well as a doctors surgery and pharmacy, a primary school, two pubs and a church. A wider range of services and shops can be found in Grayshott, whilst high street shopping and mainline stations can be found at Haslemere and Farnham. Access to the A3 is close by, which in turn leads to motorway connections to London, the South Coast and both London Airports.
