Lickfold Road, Fernhurst, Haslemere, West Sussex, GU27
An immaculately presented country house
Surrounded by its own extensive grounds and enjoying distant southerly views, Upperfold House occupies an attractive, elevated location, just a couple of miles from the village of Fernhurst and in the South Downs National Park. Understood to date in part from Tudor times, Upperfold House is a classic Wealden house of the period. The property has recently been the subject of extensive yet sympathetic restoration and refurbishment, as well as the conversion of former outbuildings to create the present linked cottage and annexe accommodation. Works have included the installation of integrated sound and data networks appropriate for modern family living, whilst retaining the essential period character of the building. The house offers charming and spacious reception rooms, with attractive views of the grounds and countryside beyond. A most generous kitchen/breakfast room, with an excellent range of bespoke furniture and appliances, with French doors to the south-facing garden. The kitchen also benefits from a pantry, adjoining utility room, boot room and access to the rear courtyard parking area. First floor accommodation comprises an elegant, double aspect, master suite, with luxuriously appointed bathroom and French doors to a balcony with distant southerly views. There are two further bedroom suites and a fourth bedroom. A fifth bedroom on the first floor is currently arranged as a study. The gardens and grounds are a key feature of Upperfold House and include formal park like gardens adjoining the house, an extensive vegetable garden, greenhouse and orchard, equestrian facilities, pasture and woodland.
