A wonderful house with an attractive, secluded location
Thurston Lodge is located in the highly desirable Marley Lane on the outskirts of Haslemere, yet within easy walking distance of shops and the train station. This attractive four bedroom detached property has been extended and recently modernised yet retains many period features as well as benefitting from a wonderful south west facing deck area, ideal for entertaining, and a 3-bay oak barn garage.
Offering bright and attractive rooms throughout, this wonderful house is set back from the lane and offers a high level of privacy. The ground floor accommodation is versatile with three/four reception rooms including a spacious sitting area with open fireplace. A newly fitted kitchen boasts a 3-door AIMS controlled AGA and vaulted ceiling, open plan dining area and a separate utility area with a stable door to the rear of the house and access to the tiered-decked rear garden.
From the entrance hall, stairs lead up to the first floor. Directly opposite, the airy master bedroom has several fitted wardrobes and cupboards, two south facing windows and an en suite bathroom with separate roll-top bath and large walk-in shower. There are three further bedrooms upstairs and two bathrooms with underfloor heating. There is a substantial loft with the potential to be converted to an additional bedroom with en-suite, subject to permitted development.
Outside, the garden is tiered with steps rising to the property from the road. There is a large, curved, south facing deck perfect for outdoor entertaining. Thurston Lodge further benefits from a 3 bay oak barn garage with remote roller shutters, plus a side access door. Above the garage there is a large roof space that is currently used for storing garden equipment and bicycles, but which was intentionally designed to be easily converted to an office or independent accommodation. There is also a single car parking space to the right of the 3 bay barn garage.
Haslemere train station is a 15-20 minute walk away, which in turn is 50 minutes to London Waterloo. Both Gatwick and Heathrow can be reached in 40-45 minutes and the A3 is within easy reach, providing links to the motorway network. The popular Mill Gastro-Pub is a 5minute walk away, located just opposite the historical millpond. Arnolds Garage is located at the lower end of the lane with a post office and supplying daily food essentials.
The ancient Sussex border path and a multitude of footpaths and bridleways can be accessed on foot, within minutes of the property. At the top of Marley lane there are incredible views and picnic areas, with miles of trails for walking, running, cycling and riding. Thurston Lodge is in the catchment area for a wide range of reputable schools.
