Set in one of Surrey's most prime locations, an exemplary Grade II listed house with 16 acres (approx.) of land.
The property is positioned in the idyllic setting and privacy of the Sutton Park Estate with provenance back to Henry VIII, who granted the manor of Sutton to Sir Richard Weston in the early 1500s. The origins of the house date from the late 16th Century with much of the original historic construction evident yet the house has been extended and updated to a very high standard to incorporate modern, comfortable living. The property strikes a balance between having the prestige of a rural estate setting whilst being in very close proximity to London via the A3 and fast train connections from Woking and Guildford. Due to the setting, each room has far reaching green field and woodland views, creating the feeling of complete rural seclusion. Over the past fifteen years, the house has been comprehensively refurbished with focus on creating beautifully crafted internal accommodation designed around the period construction. The rooms in the oldest part of the house offer many exposed structural oak beams, expected of such a period property and are of great character, whilst a later extension provides more modern living space, ideally suited to entertaining. The use of modern fittings and attention to detail ensures practical family living accommodation. Features include a hand carved wood surround to the bespoke Ham stone fireplace and custom made oak double doors leading from the lounge to the garden. All bedrooms are spacious with high ceilings and have particularly well designed storage space. There is a 672sqft double garage including first floor accommodation which could be utilised for a variety of uses such as a home office. Stepping out from the house you are in the private Sutton Place estate and can walk along the private driveways and footpaths to Triggs Lock on the Wey Canal where you can follow the canal path for beautiful countryside walks. Close by are Whitmoor and Rickman Commons, being a 166 hectare Site of Special Scientific Interest and managed by the Surrey Wildlife Trust. Sutton Green is surrounded by Green Belt and it has an active village community offering various events throughout the year along with a village green and a proactive gastro pub. The village hall is used for numerous activities, classes, children's parties, Christmas gatherings and social evenings with the popular annual Wine Tasting evening organised by the well run Sutton Green Village Association, which also oversees a summer fete. On the edge of the village is the beautifully landscaped Sutton Green Golf Club and several more notable clubs within a few miles. The train service from the local station, Worplesdon offers a fast and frequent service to London Waterloo (34 mins) or from Woking (24 mins) and AirLink coach to Heathrow. The nearby M25 offers convenient connections and easy access to both Heathrow and Gatwick whilst the A3 offers various routes south to the coast or directly into London.
