Stovolds Hill, Dunsfold
Substantial Grade II listed country home with Georgian origins, set in 2.5 acres with tennis court and swimming pool.
A planning application is pending to split this beautiful 8 bedroom property into a 6 bedroom, and a 4 bedroom house. This option may well appeal to developers, but also larger families who wish to live independently as neighbours. Planning, when granted, will allow an orangery extension to the Victorian section of the building, as well as incorporating the workshop.
The Old Farmhouse is a substantial Grade II listed mainly Georgian residence dating to around 1700 with late 19th and 20th century extensions. The listing reports that the timber framed house was re-fronted in red brick and sandstone with some brown and blue chequered brick work. The property enjoys attractive elevations from all aspects and the east side has various bricked in windows, probably from the time of window tax, under a clay tiled roof.
Internally The Old Farmhouse features spacious and light family accommodation, enjoying high ceilings. The drawing room and sitting room provide elegant formal reception space and a 30 ft atmospheric dining room with large fireplace and the extensively beamed ceiling provides excellent entertaining accommodation. The large kitchen/breakfast room enjoys southerly aspect over the garden and paddocks beyond.
On the first floor a large principal bedroom offers a double aspect view over gardens and fields beyond. A substantial en-suite bathroom with large shower together with adjacent extensively fitted dressing room provides a comprehensive suite. On the first floor are 4 further bedrooms and bath/shower rooms. A second floor provides a further 2 bedrooms and substantial Office. The accommodation amounts to some 7000sqft.
The gardens and grounds are a delightful feature. On two sides of the house is a deep flag stone terrace with formal gardens incorporating a heated swimming pool and hard surface tennis court. In all, the grounds extend to about 2.5 acres.
The current owners have recently carried out a refurbishment of the property, including a complete overhaul of the windows. There has been a comprehensive schedule of cosmetic works internally, as well as a refurbishment of the swimming pool and terraced areas.
