The Spinning Walk, Shere
A village house of superb proportions, set in a 0.9 acre plot with stunning views over the adjoining farmland and surrounding hills yet within yards of this charming and historic village.
Shere View House sits in an elevated position giving it a sense of grandeur. With hung tile elevations and charming oak framed windows this substantial family home oozes character. Under a covered loggia the oak front door leads to a bright vaulted entrance hall. The Drawing room is centered by a painted brick hearth with log burner, French doors lead to the covered loggia and garden beyond. Dual aspect windows fill the room with light and views of the grounds. A study with doors to the morning terrace makes for a fabulous space. The central dining room with windows and doors leading to the garden terrace, opens into the kitchen. A family room, utility, shower room and 2nd bathroom all complement this fabulous ground floor.
The landing has a fabulous gallery with a glass balustrade providing a study area or a quiet spot to sit and enjoy a good book. The Master bedroom is superb, double doors open to a covered and wide oak balcony with far reaching views over the gardens and rolling countryside beyond. With a walk-in wardrobe and separate dressing room you have plenty of space. Four further double bedrooms, and family bathroom and laundry room are all superbly decorated and all offer delightful views.
THE GARDENS & GROUNDS
Shere View House enjoys a high degree of privacy well screened to front with mature trees, hedgerows, and established planting. Steps lead from the gravelled driveway to the morning terrace where the morning sunshine provides a delightful spot to look towards the North Downs and wooded hillsides that surround the village. The driveway can accommodate up to eight cars and leads to a detached garage with adjoining car port. To the rear of the garage is garden/ machinery store with its own sunken barbecue patio.
The rear garden has a substantial paved terrace the full width of the property with a covered oak framed loggia. The garden is mainly lawned with clever silver birch tree planting. The upper lawn terrace is approached via four Pleached Lime trees, which create a canopied pathway. Towards the rear of the garden is a well-established yew hedge with a central decorative gate to the open fields beyond. An array of mature beds and planting fully complement this delightful South Westerly facing garden. In all 0.9 acres.
