- Secondary Accom
Situated on the border of Surrey and Hampshire sits this exquisite five bedroom family home, with annexe, nestled within grounds of approximately 1/3 of an acre, yet still just moments away from the heart of Grayshott Village Centre. Built c.1920, but with later additions, The Border House has the perfect combination of space and character.
The spacious and versatile accommodation beholds all of the pre requisites for modern family living, whilst still maintaining much of the original character and charm. Upon entry, you’re greeted by the large reception hall, giving access to all of the principal rooms. The first reception room, currently used as a formal living room, is spacious and light, with original beams, bay window and wood burning stove. The second reception room is of similar proportion, again with a feature bay window, feature fireplace, and could serve well as a family room, formal dining room or playroom.
Of particular note is the open plan kitchen/dining room. This country kitchen is filled with light, and offers excellent space for family dining, or entertaining. The double doors lead out to a decked terrace, ideal for enjoying a summers evening overlooking the garden and woodland beyond. There is also a useful utility room, rear porch for additional storage space, and downstairs WC.
Upstairs, the bedroom currently used as the master, is dual aspect, allowing an abundance of natural light to fill the large room. The second bedroom has the convenience of an ensuite shower room. There are five bedrooms in total, four of which are easy double rooms, and the fifth being a large single or small double room. The luxury family bathroom has been fully modernised in recent years, now encompassing a double walk in shower, and separate bath, as well as cleverly integrated storage.
Outside, the property is well set back and nicely screened, with ample off street parking for several vehicles. The rear garden is fully enclosed, and houses the detached annexe, formerly used to house au pairs, but now a useful space for guests or additional family members. The decked terrace wraps around the house, forming space for al fresco dining, or entertaining. The rest of the garden is mainly laid to lawn, with mature borders and trees to the rear, affording a sense of seclusion to the grounds.
Situated on the Hampshire/Surrey border, the village of Grayshott is an attractive and desirable location with a welcoming and active community. There is a bustling High Street and village square with a number of eateries, coffee shops and an excellent friendly Pub. Shoppers benefit from both well-known and independent retailers. There are also 2 social clubs, doctors and dentist practises as well as excellent state & private schools. The A3 is moments away and the nearby town of Haslemere has a mainline station on the Waterloo to Portsmouth line, with trains reaching the capital in just 50 minutes.
