Hall Place, Cranleigh
Situated in an elevated position with rural views of Hascombe Hill, this former Victorian Coach House is now a five-bedroom home, beautifully presented, offering versatile and generous accommodation of over 5,300 sq. ft. In all 5.47 acres.
This charming and characterful family home was once the coach house for Hall Place House. A private parking area sits to the front of the property. There are two main entrances; one into the boot room, or for the main entrance, you follow the gentle curved, high white rendered wall around to the side. Large wood panelled entrance gates give way to the most magnificent courtyard. This charming, cobbled stone courtyard is beautifully planted with mature olive trees, loquats, acers and a mature vine which covers a bar and BBQ area. Rarely will you see such a beautiful and enchanting approach to a home.
A broad and spacious reception hall leads to the kitchen/ dining room. This well-appointed hand built bespoke kitchen has been beautifully designed with a wonderful vista onto the main lawn and cottage gardens. With a wide range of coloured shaker style units, a significant central island with a breakfast bar, and fabulous smart three oven GC3 aga with side module, this kitchen will cater for the largest of family gatherings. A small inner passageway leads around to a larder and utility room with ample storage.
Leading from the kitchen, a family room, with views out to the courtyard and with a centrally positioned fireplace, is perfect for cozy winter nights. Accessed from the main reception hall is the drawing room. This light and generous reception room with wood burning stove has two sets of double doors to the courtyard and a set of French doors leading to the garden. From the drawing room an inner hallway offers access to a study, laundry, and boot room.
The final reception room is a magnificent 50 long entertainment/ games room, with a high ceiling, six arched windows overlooking the courtyard and a three further arched windows overlooking the driveway, paddocks, and hills beyond. Two large contemporary wood burning stoves and a double width temperature-controlled wine store complete this superb bonus room.
The first-floor accommodation is equally impressive, with two separate staircases servicing each side of the house. The main staircase rises from the reception hall and provides access to two bedrooms and shower room. A few steps up lead to the original hay loft which now hosts the double aspect master bedroom suite overlooking the courtyard and main garden. Two dressing rooms (or a nursery) and an opulent bathroom with an oversized walk-in shower and stand-alone bathtub all complement this superb master suite.
The secondary landing can be accessed either via the master bedroom or from the back staircase. This gives access to bedroom four with stunning views towards Hascombe Hill, family bathroom and up to the attic which hosts the 5th bedroom and large attic storage room.
The gardens are arranged in two sections. The first main lawn garden is located to the eastern side of the property. This stunning cottage garden has a large central lawn area with mature and well stocked flower bed borders. A rose pergola provides a wonderful, scented walkway down to the rear of the garden. A substantial brick-built outbuilding with three separate internal rooms can be used as a studio, workshop, or general storage. The second garden is walled and offers a tranquil southerly facing garden area, with an array of vegetable beds where once the Victorian glass house stood, a selection of fruit tress and again well stocked flower bed borders. Beyond this screened by a yew hedge is a wilder area with mature trees, a large chicken coup and compost bays.
Crossing over the lane which leads to the house, the paddocks and grounds extend to approx. 4.89 acres. A wooded area of copse lies to the northern edge of the fields with a pond and interesting walkways and paths that have been created by the owners.
At the head of the field is a handmade shepherds hut. This charming building has been handcrafted with a mezzanine sleeping area, eco toilet facility, fitted kitchen, wood burner and solar panels. A clever raised deck area provides the perfect spot to watch the setting sun whilst enjoying views of Hascombe Hill. Built to meet residential standards this shepherds hut is well insulated and would make a perfect home office or Airbnb.
