Exceptional family home with stunning views, set in mature gardens, on the edge of a conservation village.
Yellowell House is set in a private position and approached by a sweeping gravel drive. Built in the 1960's in an elevated position, it has been significantly extended and improved by the current owner incorporating exposed reclaimed beams, stone, brick and flagstones along with parkland fencing.
Constructed of local Hornton ironstone below a pitch tiled roof, it is located on the edge of the conservation village of Horley.
The property offers extensive practical living approaching 5700 sq ft (gross internal area) with attention to detail throughout. Key additions include fine open fireplaces, double glazed oak windows, hardwood flooring, high quality bespoke kitchen units, four oven Aga, Fired Earth and Sanitan white bathroom fittings, limestone flooring and bespoke garaging with Dura fitted units and cabinets.
Natural light pours into many of the reception rooms particularly the drawing room, kitchen and breakfast room and family room. Generous ceiling heights complement the ground floor living and give a sense of space and light.
Given the property's edge of village position, many of the rooms enjoy a fabulous view over the gardens and countryside beyond.
The stylish interiors give it a modern feel creating a very comfortable family home.
GARDEN AND GROUNDS
A key attraction is the garden that surrounds the house, which is level and predominantly laid to lawn. There are several mature trees including; a 19th century Wellingtonia; raised vegetable beds and Hartley Botanic greenhouse for the green fingered; and a Pergola plus paved entertaining areas all of which take advantage of the glorious views.
To the front is a gravel parking area for a number of cars; bespoke oak/reclaimed stone garaging and integral tandem garage with Dura fittings for the car enthusiast; and there is ample space for storage and a workshop. The single garage has heating, and the storage space above could be used for a variety of purposes subject to obtaining any necessary consents.
There is full detailed planning permission (Application Number 20/00373/F ) for the erection of an elegant single, detached four bedroom house approaching 3200 sq ft (gross internal area) and separate garaging and parking bays. Building Regulation Approval has also been obtained. The site also benefits from an existing stone barn/ garden store with loft above. The plot extends to about 0.7 of an acre.
