This superb, seven bedroom, country home is tucked away in the Surrey Hills with over 14 acres of private land.
Friars Elm was built in the mid 17th century and is a fine example of a country family house. It is in immaculate condition, having been remodelled by the current owners, yet it still retains the character and integrity of a period home
The kitchen/breakfast/family room is the heart of the house with a substantial extension creating the family living area. Bi-folding doors open to the terrace and the infinity pool beyond.
The drawing room is triple aspect and has access through double doors onto the garden. Above the drawing room is the master bedroom with a dressing area and en suite bathroom with stunning views across the paddock.There are another six bedrooms on the first and second floors. Two of these bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and the others share two family bathrooms.
Outside there is a spacious games room that could be adapted into secondary accommodation. There are other buildings serving as extra garaging, stables or storages, as well as a plant room and the gardener’s WC.
The property is approached by a long gravel driveway which offers an impressive entrance to this striking property. The gardens at Friars Elm are a key feature with the infinity swimming pool on the edge of the terrace facing west and a real sun trap. The gardens beyond consist of an orchard, small pond, vegetable garden and substantial paddocks. There are a number of outbuildings and the hard standing surface is perfect for a stable yard. The fields and paddocks surrounding the property, and the abundance of bridleways in the immediate vicinity make the property ideal for equestrian facilities.
