A substantial Haslemere Edwardian town house.
Barnfield is the major part of a substantial central Haslemere town house built 1900's in a architectural style synonymous with affluent Surrey houses of the period with later major Edwardian re-modelling. Hidden up an extended shared driveway through stone pillars with private courtyard parking the house has a triple open cart barn style garage with separate annexe above presently used as two home offices.
This handsome house was constructed of half brick and wall tile elevations, red tile roof, with timber mullion and leaded casement windows. Further stone columns and oak detailing enhances the architectural aesthetic, especially surrounding the covered entrance portico. A solid oak front door leads into an entrance lobby, which in turn opens into a large reception hall. This hall benefits from a central Jet Master fireplace, detailed ceiling panel, tall ceiling height and large south facing bay window that floods the room with natural light. To one side is a spacious cloak room with separate lavatory, a turning stair case to the first floor and second lobby to the sitting and dining rooms with a further door to the kitchen.
The kitchen/breakfast room was recently remodelled and extended by the present owners with a side glazed return added. The refurbished kitchen has a gas AGA with extended double oven and warming plate, in addition to integrated Seimen's appliances, second ovens and wine cooling fridge. The kitchen views are over the rear courtyard garden with covered carp pool, pergola seated area with stone built BBQ and pizza oven for summer entertaining. Adjoining the breakfast room is a pantry cupboard and automated cellar hatch door leading to the plant / laundry room. To the side of the kitchen is a utility room with second sink, a second cloak room with access to two dry cellars well suited for the storage of wine.
The drawing room has a Jetmaster open fire place, an elongated window with views over the courtyard garden, the dining room is of similar size. A double expanse glass extension has been added to the side of the house that spans both of these rooms, which creates the ideal environment for year round entertaining.
An open plan first floor landing leads to a double bedroom fitted with lavabo sink. A set of shallow steps lead to a secondary landing hall with four further double bedrooms. The master bedrooms bay window enjoys extended views across the lawn garden to woodland beyond and retains its original period fire place. A short flight of stairs lead down to an en suite dressing room and bathroom. The bedrooms are fitted with built in wardrobes and great care has been given to restoring many period features throughout the house. The bathrooms have been finished to a high standard with CP Hart appliances and Hansgrohe fittings. There are three further double bedrooms with ensuites, including two wet rooms, the master guest bedroom with en suite dressing and bathroom. The interior decoration of the home remains sympathetic to the houses original period with neutral pallet, emphasising the many period features. This makes for a very well presented and spacious family home.
The garden is divided into three parts measuring in all about 0.8 acres with two lawns either side of the drive. The sunken lawn garden with summer house has a rock water feature and is bordered by mature hedges with mature specimen trees. The garden to the front of the house has mature Rhododendrons, Azaleas and pleasant stone walls with wrought iron gate lawn garden and a York stone slab path. The flexibility of the accommodation with the annexe and ease of access to Three Gates Lane and Haslemere High street shops and mainline railway station (Waterloo 50 minutes) makes for a very practical and convenient family home.
