Full property description

  • The property is situated on the outskirts of this incredibly sought after Surrey village, a little over half a mile from the large quintessential village green which has a postcard-perfect selection of period properties ranging from the 16th and 17th centuries right up to the Arts-and-Crafts movement and beyond. A closer secondary green, is the home to village cricket pitch and bordered by St.Mary's Church of England Primary School, rated Good by Ofsted in 2019. Naturally there is an excellent choice of local independent schools if preferred. The village is home to three fantastic local pubs, an excellent Butcher and choice of village stores. For those commuting to London Waterloo, fast trains are available from Haslemere or Godalming or there is the stopping service from nearby Witley.

    About Border Oak - Award Winning Bespoke Oak Framed Buildings Since 1980 Border Oak, a family run business, have specialised in the design and construction of exceptional, authentic bespoke oak framed buildings across the UK and abroad. Their knowledge and experience is regarded as being unrivalled in the self-build industry which they have pioneered over the past four decades. All of their oak frames are designed & made by hand in their traditional workshops in Herefordshire. They focus upon creative design, craftsmanship, sustainability, innovation and customer service. Our clients chose their Custom Build 'turnkey' service for both properties, which included the complete design & construction package, project managed by Border Oak using their own labour and materials. Border Oak designed and built the very first SIPs dwelling in the UK around 2000 which appeared on Channel 4's Grand Designs. This was the very first SIPs dwelling built in the UK which completely transformed the construction industry. Kevin McCloud neatly summarised the finished house: 'Craftsmanship, simple honest materials, modern comforts and a certain modesty - all exemplary qualities for a 21st century cottage.' Over the past 20 years Border Oak have continued to develop their innovative SIPs and oak frame concept, and have added hundreds of new variations across a wide spectrum of sizes; always remaining true to their aim of creating a cottage that is incredibly sustainable, adaptable, of high performance and based upon classic design principles. Border Oak report they invented the much-imitated Oak Frame Infill Panel (with theirs being the first and only to be TRADA and NHBC assessed and approved). Apparently, their high performance panel has been adopted as 'Best Practice' by the National House Building Council (NHBC), and remains the ultimate method to make an exposed oak frame waterproof, thermal whilst allowing for movement. It is felt, Border Oak houses invariably have higher re-sale values than a conventional equivalent - supported by the numerous national awards won, magazine articles and television shows their buildings have featured on (including Grand Designs, Restoration Man, Building the Dream). They feel the greatest testament to their products is the repeat orders from past clients, the word of mouth recommendations and recognition from industry experts. Many of the Border Oak team have built their own Border Oak homes - a clear demonstration that they know and love their product. The Property This stunning new build, with its handmade green oak frame and stunning features is due for completion in April 2020. This rare opportunity genuinely warrants an early viewing to avoid disappointment. Approached via its own private driveway, you are immediately struck by how attractive this bespoke house is. From the hand made bricks and roof tiles, to the sustainably sourced weatherboarding and double glazed windows painted in heritage colours sets the scene for what's to come inside. Even in an incomplete state, this lovely home already oozes charm and character. Features will include a mix of porcelain and oak flooring, handmade staircase and doors with blacksmith made fixtures, in addition to high quality British 'heritage' fittings. The front door opens into a most welcoming and spacious central hallway with cloakroom and separate utility room which compliments the hand made Neptune kitchen that adjoins. The open plan kitchen/dining room is of a favoured double aspect and enjoys qualities such as a large bay window and abundance of exposed beams and posts. For lounging or formal entertaining, the main living room has real wow factor created by the full height vaulted ceiling, enormous inglenook fireplace and its triple aspect with two sets of double opening doors that lead out to the garden. The visible joinery and craftsmanship on show is almost breathe taking. The three double bedrooms and two bathrooms are split between the ground and first floor, providing maximum versatility to the new owner and their family. This arrangement would suit someone with a dependent relative/teenager/au pair or someone seeking a property with a ground floor bedroom and bathroom. The master bedroom suite is of a favoured double aspect with feature bay window and has a bordering dressing room and quality en-suite bath/shower room. First floor highlights include a part galleried landing with potential study area, bedrooms that are of a double aspect and a well-appointed shower room. Outside the landscaped gardens will include a mix of fenced/hedged boundaries, area laid to lawn with rear terrace ideal for alfresco dining and parking at the front for 2/3 cars. Attributes to the generous size property (approx. 147m2 external floor area) include a combination boiler, underfloor heating to much of the ground floor (with radiators in bedroom one and on first floor) and high levels of insulation and air tightness created through the highly sustainable construction. A viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the property and its established, non estate position. No ongoing chain.
