A great family house in a quiet position on the edge of the town overlooking woodland, with easy access to the town and a short walking distance to Haslemere station.
THE PROPERTY Coniston House is a well presented detached family house in a lovely setting on the edge of the town close to open countryside. Our client has owned the house for over 30 years, but completely remodelled it in 2012 and the house now offers spacious, well proportioned internal accommodation with three bedroom suites and with up to 5 bedrooms if required. The hall opens into a large lounge and light and airy garden room creating a wonderful entertaining area. This is complemented by a 37' kitchen/dining room, equally good for entertaining. Adjacent to the house is the double garage, with integrated storeroom behind with stairs to loft room above (open to various uses). The house sits in private gardens with lawn and terraces. Our client has particularly enjoyed living in this location because of the balance of being in a quiet spot, with miles of walking immediately up the lane, whilst only being 7 minutes' walk from Haslemere Station. One to be viewed to be truly appreciated.
OUTSIDE A drive leads up to the front of the house with a good sized parking area and adjacent to this there is the garage with a garden shed to one side. Immediately adjacent to the house there is a terrace surrounded by well stocked borders. Between the kitchen and the garage there is a further area of terrace, currently with an aviary, and a path leads round to the rear of the house beyond which the lawn and private garden are located. A third terrace adjoins the kitchen and opens to areas of lawn bounded in places by herbaceous borders. The garden is very private and is set up for easy maintenance.
LOCATION The house is set back from the highly sought after Bunch Lane, overlooking 18 acres of protected woodland and just a few minutes' walk from the local shops in Weyhill and the station. Haslemere offers a comprehensive range of shopping and sporting facilities and the station offers train services to London Waterloo in around 55 minutes. Close to the town there are a number of National Trust owned areas of common and woodland, including Blackdown and Marley Common, and the whole area is covered in footpaths and bridleways providing great scope for riding, walking and cycling. There is a good range of schools in the area, both primary and secondary. The larger centres of Guildford and Chichester are within reasonable driving distance as is London and the South Coast via the A3.
