A substantial, flexible and high spec character house approached via a long, sweeping entrance drive with space for over 20 production vehicles for parking. The property stands in the centre of quiet, secluded grounds of approximate 3 acres, backing onto and overlooking rolling farmland (and Ringo Starr’s former UK residence). The very contemporary, spacious interior (5,500 sq ft/510 sq m), includes three large south-facing reception rooms with log burners and all with doors leading out to a full-width terrace overlooking the mature garden. The garden now includes a brand new floodlit multi-sports court complete with artificial grass, hockey goal, cricket net, netball post and tennis court markings. There is a large open plan kitchen complete with four-oven Aga and very large island. The minimalist design of the property's interior offers a wonderfully versatile blank canvas. Approached from a beautiful large entrance hall, a door leads through to an indoor heated swimming pool complex complete with changing room and shower facilities and a sitting area overlooking the garden. On the first floor, reached by a wide walnut and glass staircase, there are five large bedrooms and three bathrooms. The master bedroom comes complete with walk in dressing room, ensuite bathroom and French doors with Juliette balcony, overlooking the neighbouring fields. From the landing, a staircase leading to an extensive boarded attic/roof space offers excellent storage or alternative filming areas. Every room offers data ports; there is excellent wifi coverage throughout, and all ground floor rooms are linked to a Sonos sound system. Outside there is a substantial converted outbuilding (a 2000 sq ft/185 sq m 4-bedroom bungalow) , which can also be used or which can accommodate our family to offer unhindered use of the main house. The mature grounds include a hard tennis court and provide a wonderful secluded setting with views over fields to the rear. Very easy access (5 min drive) to Cranleigh village with full amenities - M&S, Sainsbury's, restaurants, cafes, post office etc. - and the property is located just off the A281, south of Guildford, with easy access to the A3 and M25.
