About this property

  • Sitting in an elevated south facing position above a picturesque tree lined country lane, Heatherling is an attractive tile hung period house built around 90 years ago that has been carefully maintained by the current owners and retains a number of architectural features reflecting its age.

    Upon entering the front porch, a central wood paneled reception hall with its inviting log burner greets you. The main reception rooms radiate from the heart of the house and are all south facing. A wide staircase leads up to the galleried first floor landing with an overhead roof light allowing daylight to flow through to the ground floor.

    On the ground floor are four comfortable reception rooms. The drawing room, with its wide lead lined double glazed bay window, leads through to a purpose built sun room with double doors onto the garden.

    A pretty music room with double doors onto the garden sits between the drawing room and the impressive dining room with a symmetrically positioned wide double glazed lead lined window. A door from this room leads through to a further extensive wood paneled room, also with double doors onto the garden, which is currently used as a study but could make an ideal family space. There is also an entrance into the kitchen from this room.

    The family kitchen is situated towards the centre of the house with views to the side and towards the detached stables. A spacious room it offers ample space for informal dining with the kitchen itself, positioned around a central island and made up of hand built cabinetry, a two ring/oven AGA and separate gas hob. Doors lead off this room to a walk in larder, laundry room, further storage and a back door.

    On the first floor there are five double bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms in total. The principal bedroom is south facing and overlooks the formal gardens from a large bay window. There is a range built in wardrobes and access to a large recently fitted en suite bathroom with separate walk in shower.

    There are two further double bedrooms to the front and two further double rooms to the rear and side. Accessed from the landing is access to the second floor via a fixed ladder. This provides further storage space and could offer occasional use especially as play space.

    Outside, the house sits towards the front of its plot in a private and elevated position. With around 15 acres of private grounds, Heatherling offers a mix of floral formal gardens (including lawn and stone terraces, woodland, open land and defined paddocks. There is an enclosed swimming pool with glazed retractable sides and roof and a modern tennis court.

    A particular feature of the property is the wonderful open land to the north of the house, with its undulating nature and fine outlook. Left mostly as grassland, the proximity to the nature reserve of Frensham Common is clear with extensive areas of colourful heather.

    Up a small steep hillock, a covered circular seating area sits atop, one of the areas 'Jumps' This delightful area offers majestic views over Frensham Common, 'The Flashes' and back towards Farnham. There are a few defined paddocks with three stables and tack room situated closer to the house.

    Parking is provided within an extensive four bay garage block with a double depth, allowing for over 6 cars to be covered and secured. There is considerable loft space above which offers scope (subject to the usual consents) for further accommodation if required.
