About this property

  • An impressive country home designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and surrounded by grounds designed by Gertrude Jekyll, Warren Mere represents countryside living at its finest.
    This grand country abode set in acres of private countryside is an idyllic opportunity to sample the very best elements of life in rural Surrey rarely seen on the market.

    Dating back to the 16th Century Warren Mere was extensively remodeled in the Arts and Crafts style in 1897 and extended in 1909 by Sir Edwin Lutyens, widely regarded as the greatest architect of his age. It is approached by a long driveway which leads through wrought iron gates terminating in a wide turning area in front of the house. The house sits perfectly, surrounded by its magnificent grounds, first laid down by the celebrated garden designer Gertrude Jekyll. In all, a light and airy Grade II listed residence, perfect for entertaining and with extensive guest and staff accommodation.

    Warren Mere is positioned in the centre of its land in an elevated position overlooking one of its three large ponds. The land is a mixture of woodland, pasture land, ponds and formal/informal gardens. To the rear of the house is a large terrace which runs the full length of the property ideal for al fresco dining with access directly off the kitchen. There is a tennis court and outbuildings. There is a substantial three bedroom cottage which adjoins the open bay garages to the front of the property. There are a number of other outbuildings previously used as stables or store rooms. The gardens and grounds extend to around 50 acres.

    Warren Mere is located close to the popular village of Thursley, and Guildford only 9 miles away providing more extensive facilities. Communications to the house are excellent, with Milford mainline station (about 6 miles away) providing a regular service to London Waterloo taking approximately 47 minutes, or Godalming (about 7 miles) taking 45 minutes. The A3 at Hurtmore is very accessible, allowing fast access to London (about 40 miles), Heathrow (about 31 miles) and Gatwick (36 miles) as well as the broader motorway network.The area has very good recreational facilities, with golf courses at Milford, Liphook, Hankley Common, Hindhead and Farnham. Horseracing can be enjoyed at Ascot, Sandown and Goodwood. The Surrey Hills countryside provides wonderful opportunities for walking, riding and country pursuits. There is access via a bridleway down the lane to the Thursley National Nature Reserve. There is sailing all along the south coast, at Chichester Harbour and nearby at Frensham Ponds near Farnham.There are a number of excellent prep schools and public schools within the area, namely, St Catherine's, Aldro School, Charterhouse, Priors Field, Cranleigh School, St Hilary's, The Royal Grammar School, Guildford High School and Hurtwood House. Further afield are Wellington College, St John's School in Leatherhead, Reigate Grammar School, Eton, Harrow and Bedales School.
