Blackdown, Haslemere, Surrey, GU27
A substantial country house with commanding views over the South Downs
Originally forming part of the Blackdown Park Estate, Home Farm occupies a prime location within the South Downs National Park and has easy access to both Haslemere and the picturesque village of Lurgashall. Already a landmark house, the property has planning consent to extend further. EPC - F Home Farm benefits from substantial, well-proportioned rooms with impressive ceiling heights, fine period features and breath-taking views from the front of the house. Of particular note are the spacious drawing room, elegant dining room and conservatory. The generous kitchen/breakfast room features light granite surfaces, an AGA and a partially vaulted breakfast area. The property is accessed via a gravelled driveway which sweeps through the formal gardens to a circular forecourt area at the front of the house. The property has a number of substantial outbuildings, one of which, Swallow Barn, has been converted to a guest cottage. Other outbuildings include two large open barns with space for eight cars, a storage room and further small barn. In front of the house, the formal gardens comprise extensive areas of lawn, a well-planted rockery and a number of fruit trees along the eastern boundary. Beyond the formal gardens to the front of the house are a large meadow and a further field to the south east. To the rear, the gardens are well considered with well-planted shrub and flower borders and mature trees. While already an imposing and substantial property, Home Farm has the benefit of planning consent both to significantly extend the main house and create a swimming pool complex in the outbuildings.
