Beautiful Georgian Country House with separate accommodation, Swimming Pool and Tennis Court.
A beautifully refurbished Grade 2 Listed period Georgian House built circa 1820 set in over 7 acres of mature grounds with beautiful historic trees and featuring a hard tennis court and heated outdoor swimming pool. The house combines many period features with the comforts and luxuries of a modern home.
Approached through electric gates and a sweeping gravel driveway flanked by Rhododendrons and a feature pond, arriving at a large parking area to the front of the house. A wide and welcoming hallway has been opened up providing direct access to the formal drawing room with new engineered Oak floors, an open fireplace and French doors leading out to the gardens. On the opposite side of the hallway is a modern family kitchen/breakfast room featuring a large Corian topped island with Teppanyaki hot plate, a gas Aga, and limestone floors with wet under-floor heating. A large utility room with ample storage and a doorway onto the kitchen courtyard garden. Further accommodation on the ground floor, includes a large family/TV room with built-in sound system, open fire and French doors onto the garden. A partially fitted study and a characterful dining room, plus two cloakrooms, and access to a cellar.
A feature central staircase leads to a large first floor landing and a ceiling atrium providing lots of natural light. The principle bedroom enjoys a dual aspect views, a walk-in wardrobe and sumptuous en suite bathroom. There are five further double bedrooms, three en suite and a further family bathroom. There is a further double bedroom with en suite bathroom and dressing space on the second floor, ideal for a live-in nanny or as a guest suite.
On the opposite side of the kitchen garden are two attached cottages over two floors. The largest features three bedrooms and two bathrooms, separate kitchen, dining room and living room with French doors. The second cottage has a separate kitchen and living room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. It is worth pointing out that these additional separate dwellings should qualify for the purchase for multiple dwellings relief and a significant SDLT saving (subject to legal advice). There is a further dilapidated outbuilding adjoining the road that could (subject to planning permission) be converted into garaging or even gym/leisure use.
This property has 8.5 acres of land.
The grounds were also completely landscaped by the current owners and the large pond added along with the new driveway. Largely laid to lawn and featuring magnificent mature oaks there is a new hard tennis court, as well as a heated outdoor swimming pool run with an air source heat pump and back up gas boiler. An iconic airstream caravan has been converted into a pool house and may be available by separate negotiation. The northern section of land is mainly wooded with a woodland walkway meandering through the trees that also feature an orchard with a variety of fruit trees.
Ashe Grange enjoys a convenient position about a mile north of the Hogs Back in a triangle between Farnham, Aldershot and Guildford and lies equidistant between the A3 and M3. The village of Ash provides a good range of local facilities and a branch line station with a train connection to Guildford. The larger towns of Farnham and Guildford are both accessible via the A31 Hogs Back. Both towns provide an excellent range of facilities including shopping, educational and recreational amenities.
The area is popular with commuters due to Guildford main Line station providing fast and frequent services to London Waterloo, and the nearby A31, in turn leading to the A3 and M25 in Guildford, and the M3 from the A331.
The general area is particularly well served with schools, for all ages, which include Charterhouse, St Catherine', Tormead, the Royal Grammar School and Guildford High School.
From Guildford follow the directions to Farnham taking the A31. After approximately 4 miles cross over the dual carriageway following the signs to Ash. Continue along White Lane for about a mile, cross over a hump back bridge and after about a further quarter of a mile and just after the left hand turning into Willow Fields, the entrance to Ashe Grange will be found on the right hand side.Read all
