About this property

  • South Dunrozel is a unique central portion of a Victorian country house located in a sought after position in Haslemere, set in over half an acre of established gardens and grounds.

    Believed to date from the mid-19th century and a former residence of Lady Russell, wife of Lord John Russell MP, South Dunrozel is a house rich in history. More recently the house has served as a much loved family home and now available to the open market for the first time in over fifty years.

    Upon entering the house you are immediately struck by a sense of arrival. A bright spacious hallway boasting impressive ceiling height welcomes you into three generous reception rooms, all south facing over the delightful rear garden. Most notably an impressive drawing room of magnificent proportions with open feature fire place and large bay window is ideal for relaxing or entertaining. The second and third reception rooms would be ideal as a snug/playroom and dining room respectively. A large open plan kitchen benefitting from ample utility and storage space offers further opportunity for updating. The ground floor accommodation is complimented by a timber framed conservatory to the rear of the house, bathed in natural light, offering direct access to an attractive York stone terrace in the rear garden.

    Bedroom accommodation is accessed via a wide central staircase from the hallway. The generous principle bedroom benefits from a separate dressing area and storage accompanied by an en suite shower room. From the central landing are three further double bedrooms, complete with built in wardrobes, all enjoying pleasant views of the gardens and beyond. A large family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation.

    Additionally, there is an extensive loft space, accessed via a drop down ladder, partly converted for use as a studio. This loft space lends itself to being converted into additional bedroom accommodation, subject to the necessary consents.

    The gardens are spectacular, set in approximately 0.6 acres, with a splendid terrace, beautiful rhododendrons, mature shrubs and plants providing exceptional colours throughout the seasons and a woodland beyond. There are two single garages also included.

    The property is offered in good order throughout with further opportunity to enhance and update.

I love the proportions and location of this wonderful home, with all the principal rooms facing the gardens to the rear.
