About this property

  • Borrow House is an attractive early 20th century house built in the Arts and Crafts style, understood to date from 1924. The property sits in a secluded and elevated position, well within its grounds, with many of the main reception rooms and bedrooms enjoying excellent views over the gardens.

    Throughout, the accommodation is well presented with good proportions and the rooms arranged perfectly for family living.

    The welcoming reception hall with a fireplace and log burner, leads centrally through the house giving access to all the living accommodation.

    The double aspect drawing room is a fantastic room with a fireplace with log burner, fitted library furniture and bay windows and French double doors out to the south facing rear terrace.

    From the hall and a set of double doors from the kitchen is the dining room, with a deep bay with French double doors out to the terrace and a grand open fire place. Here there is access to the loggia, a charming open sun room.

    Between the drawing and dining room there is a studio/garden room.

    The kitchen is fitted with cabinetry in a contemporary style with breakfast bar seating and built in appliances. There is an adjoining utility room and a laundry room.

    On the first floor there is the principal bedroom suite with a well-appointed en suite, walk-in wardrobe and balcony, enjoying elevated views of the gardens. There are four further double bedrooms and two further bathrooms.

    On the second floor there are two more double bedrooms, a shower room and eaves storage.

    Borrow House is a wonderfully private house, set behind wooden gates with a sweeping drive that arrives at the front of the house with ample room for parking in the gravelled turning area.

    To the rear of the house is a large paved terrace with steps and a stone wall which lead down to an area of rhododendrons and azaleas.

    The gardens and grounds at Borrow House are a delightful feature and blend well with the surrounding countryside. Around the house are areas of level lawn and a broad terrace, beyond which the garden takes on a more natural feel with areas of light woodland with a pond and heather land.

    The grounds are unique and feature The Middle Jump, one of the three Devil's Jumps. The Jump within the grounds of Borrow House once supported an observatory built by 19th century British astronomer Richard Christopher Carrington.

    The view from the top of the Jump is truly outstanding and offers a breathtaking panoramic view over the surrounding countryside for miles across the local Frensham Common nature reserve.
