Plot & Design
This is a very rare opportunity to build a distinctive contemporary five-bedroom country house of architectural merit totalling 3,905 sq. ft, situated along a quiet rural lane close to the centre of Farley Green. The plot is perfectly positioned to maximise the views across the Albury and Shere valley and onwards to the Albury Heath hillsides.
Farley green is situated within the Surrey Hills and is designated as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (ANOB), as such this highly protected landscape rarely see permissions granted for new dwellings. This project has all the structural and construction drawings required to start the build programme without delay. This would make the perfect self-build option for those wishing to create their own landmark family home, or if you prefer a design and build option can be made available. This option would allow you to have the property built for you to your specific requirements.
With a gated entrance driveway with ample parking will provide you with a wonderful sense of arrival, as you approach this contemporary styled family home. With a broad reception hall and clear vista of the views behind the house, you will be instantly struck by the sense of light and space this design has created.
To front of the ground reception space, you can enjoy a snug/ family room, study, and cloakroom. Central to the ground floor is a well-appointed boot room/ utility with ample space allowed for of your familys needs. Towards the rear of the ground floor is where this remarkable home comes alive. The reception hallway flows into an open place kitchen with extensive central island and bespoke cabinetry. The plan is to create a central island with a breakfast bar style seating area. The dining space and seating area all benefit from extensive Westerly facing windows with twin sets of double doors leading out to a substantial elevated terrace that drinks in the surrounding views of the Surrey Hills.
To the right of the reception hall is spacious, bright, and opulent drawing room with central fireplace and extensive glazing again providing ample oppertuity to admire the grounds and views beyond.
The first-floor plays host to a magnificent Master bedroom suite with clever interior design creating a walk through dressing area concealed behind a bespoke headboard arrangement. The proposed bed position within this fabulous room is designed to maximise your view of the surrounding landscape. Double doors lead out onto a generously sized outdoor roof terrace. The en-suite bathroom has provision for a full bathroom suite with dual sink units, shower, and standalone bath.
The second bedroom has the benefit of a walk-through dressing area, ample bedroom space and provision for an en-suite shower room. The third bedroom has also been cleverly considered with a full wall of wardrobes, and access to a private balcony. The en-suite shower room is a Jack & Jill style arrangement shared with bedroom four.
The upper floor has been designed to allow for an upper reception/ cinema room, with three Velux windows and two fabulous cabrio Velux balcony windows. The sense of light and space found throughout the home is continued to this third floor. Bedroom five leads from this central space as does a well-appointed shower room. Consideration has also been given to a sizable loft storage area.
The Gardens & Grounds
The design concept for the gardens is to create various garden terraces that adjoin the house, with this elevated position these terraces maximise the surround landscape views. An outdoor fireplace will help you enjoy this fabulous outdoor space well after the sun has set. Throughout the gardens careful though has been given to create several smaller seating areas and an additional garden entertaining area at the rear boundary incorporating an outdoor kitchen with BBQ, wine fridge dining and seating area with a central fire pit.
