Description

This period home, originally a two bay timber framed medieval house, with 17th century and 19th century additions, has been the subject of an extensive modernisation programme by the present owners and is offered in outstanding order throughout. The principle house offers spacious family accommodation with three large reception rooms, including a fabulous drawing room with inglenook fireplace together with a large kitchen/breakfast room whilst on the first floor there are 5 excellent bedrooms and 3 bath/shower rooms. Outside there is a detached barn style lodge ideal as a studio or au pair suite which has a principle sitting/bedroom with mezzanine area above the kitchen and shower room. To the rear is a very large quadruple garage with games room over and features a circular wine cellar. The house sits in wonderful grounds of about 1 3/4 acres with a mix of formal and informal areas. There is a feature shrubbery garden with wonderful flowers and shrubs, formal lawn areas, a heated and filtered swimming pool enclosed by screening hedges, a full sized tennis court, and paddock. The grounds enjoy a wonderful aspect overlooking adjacent fields forming part of the West Horsley Place estate and yet the property is easily accessible to the village centre of East Horsley with its range of independent shops, supermarket, doctor's surgery, library and main line station providing a commuter service to London Waterloo. The A3 and junction 10 of the M25 are both easily accessible in just a few minutes, the latter providing motorway access to both Heathrow and Gatwick Airports in around half an hour. There are outstanding schools in the area both within the state and private sector, Cranmore Prep School being within half a mile of Hornbeam. The historic county town of Guildford is just 5 miles to the south west with its famed cobbled high street and just over half a mile is the edge of the Surrey Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty offering miles of uninterrupted walks. This is a unique opportunity to purchase a spacious period home with substantial outbuildings, pool, tennis court and paddock set in a lovely village location.
