Shere Road, West Clandon
A rare opportunity to purchase this fabulous three-bedroom semi-detached cottage with 11 acres of paddocks, six boxes, tack room, and stores, with access to the North Downs Way.
Agents Note: Given the rural approach lane, we respectively request that you do not conduct an unattended visit of the farm but instead contact Grantley to arrange a suitable time to visit.
Approached via a long rural lane which winds slightly uphill, before heading down towards the farm. On reaching the brow of the hill you are met with the most fantastic valley view with the cottage and equestrian facilities neatly laid out before you.
The property itself has a clever layout, with the main entrance to the home via a conservatory and into a sitting/ dining room with tiled floors. Access from the reception room is given to the utility room and downstairs shower room. This arrangement is most helpful if you have been out in the fields tending to your animals, or perhaps walking the dogs along the North Downs Way, or any number of the numerous trails, paths and bridleways that cover the surrounding hillside. It is worth noting that there are no public paths or bridleways crossing the farm.
A well appointed fitted kitchen with a good array of cabinets overlook the rear gardens. A more formal drawing room has a fabulous outlook across the garden but also has front aspect windows so you can see the stables, barns and any guests arriving along the drive.
The first-floor accommodation is equally spacious, with three good sized bedrooms all with lovely views across the adjoining paddocks and woodland. A modern family bathroom further complements the first-floor accommodation.
As mentioned, the Farm is approached via a long private and rural lane, opposite the house an equestrian yard is well laid out with a large machinery store, four deep brick built stable boxes, three timber-built boxes and tack room. In addition, a hay store, car port and outbuildings all compliment the equestrian facilities on offer.
Due to the topography of the landscape, the 10 acres of post and rail enclosed paddocks have a gentle slope to assist with the free draining sandy soil. A 1-acre field sits behind the yard and could be further enclosed to create more paddocks if required. The land is edged by mature and establish coppice to the South which screens the paddocks from the prevailing wind and offers a stunning backdrop. To the West a deeper wooded copse adds interest, with a central track leading out into the Surrey Hills and the may bridleways beyond.
The property has been under the same ownership for more than 50 years and offers a truly unique opportunity.
Wellhouse Farm sits within a hidden valley to the North of Newlands Corner with the most fabulous views towards Harrow Hill Copse and the Netherlands Wood beyond. Access to the North Downs Way with an abundance of trails, bridleways, and exceptional riding throughout the Surrey Hills.
Close by the historic village of West Clandon enjoys a convenient location surrounded by open fields and National Trust land. Mentioned as a settlement in Domesday, the village is now a sought-after residential area, benefiting equally from its rural location and ease of communications.
The A3 provides access to Guildford, London, the M25 and the airports.
