Escape To The Country
Burford Place, Picketts Hill, Hampshire GU35 8TD
Introducing the new, supersize 7 bedroom 6 bathroom country home by Octagon, a grand rural retreat that is perfect for families who are looking to upsize and find more house for their money away from the city.
Set within 5.5 acres, there is ample room for a pony paddock, stables and barn, whilst the picturesque property sits at the end of a sweeping driveway, with a large forecourt providing generous space for guest parking.
The exterior has a classic contemporary feel, with mellow stock bricks, elegant stone portico with regal entrance columns and floor to ceiling windows. Inside this 7,700 sq. ft. home, there is a large grand hallway with a stunning timber staircase, marble paneled guest cloakroom/WC and access to all principal ground floor rooms. To the right, a pre wired cinema room awaits, and opposite this space is a home study. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a large drawing room with fireplace, formal dining room opening onto the rear garden terrace, and extensive, open plan Cape Cod style painted kitchen with a full range of integrated Miele appliances, an informal eating area. The adjoining family room has the rural essential, a wood burning stove.
On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to all of the 7 bedrooms, including the impressive master suite with glamourous en-suite and super-sized dressing room. There are 5 further beautifully appointed bathrooms.
Externally, the property has a detached triple garage with ample storage space and architecturally designed landscaping.
Though Burford Place is in a tranquil country location, the property is conveniently located within 5 miles of the A3, and for travel to London, Liphook, Haslemere and Farnham mainline train stations have regular services to Waterloo taking approximately 1 hour. A good selection of shops, bars and restaurants are found in the nearby towns of Haslemere, Farnham, Petersfield and Guildford, and there are a number of excellent schools in the area, including The Royal School, St Edmunds and at Hindhead, the Royal Senior School and St Ives in Haslemere as well as Frensham Heights in Frensham.
Priced at £4.75m, Burford Place can be viewed by appointment 7 days a week. Open weekends 10am – 4pm.
