    About this property

      Warnham Lodge Farm enjoys an idyllic rural situation, set far back from a quiet country lane and entirely surrounded by its own landscaped grounds. Its elevated setting also rewards with attractive distant views to Leith Hill.

      Warnham is in many ways the archetypal English village with its period buildings, parish church, cricket green and pubs. Today it is a thriving place with a number of active community groups.

      The village stores and butchers between them provide for daily needs while a more extensive range of services may be found at nearby Horsham or at Dorking.

      Communications are good with the main A24 road providing the north-south link between London and the coast and connecting with the M25 at Leatherhead for the airports and the national motorway network. There is also a good train service from Warnham or Horsham with journey time to London (Victoria) from 51 minutes.

      The area benefits from an excellent choice of good schools including Warnham Primary, Farlington, Pennthorpe, Cranleigh and Hurstpierpoint College among several others. Recreational opportunities include golf at a number of clubs; polo at Hurtwood Park and Knepp Castle; racing at Epsom and Goodwood and sailing at Southwater. Hickstead Jumping Course and Equestrian Centre is located in West Sussex (18.1 miles from Warnham Lodge Farm). Of note there is a 1,000 acre Deer Park and nature reserve in the village of Warnham. There are also public sport and leisure centres in Dorking and Horsham. The surrounding countryside offers miles of walking and riding through some of our prettiest countryside.

      Warnham Lodge Farm is a beautifully presented family house with a perfect balance of entertaining space and family accommodation.

      Having been meticulously renovated, the house strikes a harmonious chord between modern aesthetics and traditional charm. The ground floor offers fabulous, predominately south facing lateral space overlooking the gardens and grounds. At the heart of the house is a beautiful family kitchen designed by Martin Moore with both formal and informal dining options.

      Other highlights include a wonderful drawing room with pitched ceiling that leads to a fully integrated party barn of nearly 50ft complete with stylish bespoke bar. Upstairs the accommodation consists of six bedrooms and five bathrooms with an excellent principal suite and the added benefit of one of the bedroom suites having its own staircase ideal for guest/independent living.

      The principal outbuilding is an immaculate stable block and enclosed yard. These include four Monarch loose boxes, two smaller boxes, tack room, feed room and wash bay/solarium. The first floor has been refurbished and is arranged as two apartments that would be ideally suited to secondary accommodation.

      There is an additional modern timber stable block of six boxes, offering flexible use.

      Further equestrian facilities include a Clayton horse-walker and a 60x25 metre all weather training arena by Charles Britton recently refurbished by Jim Boyce. Also incorporated into the main stable block is a double and single garage, and an additional storage room.

      The gardens and grounds are a particular highlight. Approached from the lane through an attractive tree-lined 100 metre drive that leads to the house, views over the north Surrey hills and open aspects create a wonderful feeling of seclusion and space. Lying mainly to the south and west of the house the formal garden is ideally suited for entertaining with the swimming pool and tennis court close by. A clubhouse with bar and decking has recently been added to the pool area and the pool totally refurbished by Lagoon Pools.

      Beyond the formal area the remainder of the garden extends to the southern boundary and is laid mainly to lawn with spring flowers and a variety of mature trees and shrubs. The remaining grounds to the north and east are arranged as post and rail fenced paddocks or open pasture. Also, to the north, there is a pretty area of light woodland with a bluebell wood. A short length of little-used public footpath crosses the land, well away and out of sight of the house.

    The setting and, in particular, the approach to this house are superb. It is immaculately maintained and is a very complete home with a fantastic array of facilities. Sitting in the centre of its land provides an ideal setup - a beautiful property!
