We have loved living in a rural time warp with our own land, yet able to nip into Farnham or catch the train to London, combining all that is best in town and country located right on the Surrey and Hampshire border.
THE PROPERTY A fabulous contemporary family home in a wonderful rural setting. Behind the historic façade attributed to Harold Falkner, is a naturally light yet spacious house which blends a clever use of oak frame with glass to draw the outside in. The house is set on three floors providing a versatile layout with views to the north over the adjoining countryside and the south towards the Wey Valley and Alice Holt Forest beyond.
The rebuild/refurbishment was completed recently and the house is fitted with a state of the art ground source heating system providing economic running costs for the house and swimming pool which currently receives a Renewable Heat Incentive grant payable is currently £725 per quarter and is RPI linked up to August 2021.
LOCATION Runwick is a rural hamlet, one of Surrey's best kept secrets being within a few miles only of the heart of Farnham, yet on high ground along the back lanes, amongst a gently undulating rural landscape. Grovers is set back from a single track lane with all its land lying to the rear ring fencing its outlook.
Although rural, it is remarkably accessible located right on the Surrey/Hampshire border and a few miles only from the regional towns of Farnham and Fleet. The M3 lies to the north with junctions at Odiham or Fleet. The A31 also provides good regional transport links to Guildford (A3). Surrey/Hampshire is well catered for with top performing state and independent schools all within the region. Farnham station is 3.1 miles away.
OUTSIDE The garden and grounds are planned for ease of maintenance with paved terraces off the back of the house and around the pool with areas of mown grass and longer meadow grass sown with a wild flower mix and some manageable flower beds close to the house for colour. The land to the rear is fenced and split into two interconnecting areas to make it practical for grazing and provides a lovely outlook from the house. In all about 4.87 acres (1.945 ha).
In a nutshell:
We have loved living in a rural time warp with our own land, yet able to nip into Farnham or catch the train to London, combining all that is best in town and country.
