Moot Place is a secluded, generous 3-bedroom single storey family home with just over ½ acre of wrap around gardens, situated off The Avenue. Set in the heart of Haslemere yet feels like you are in the middle of the countryside with no traffic noise, just the sound of birdsong and rustling leaves. Within 15mins walk of the mainline station and a short walk to Lion Green.
The property has been a most enjoyed family home by the present owners for the last sixteen years during which they extended the kitchen/diner. There is still much more potential for new owners to extend as the property had previously been granted permission to change the pitch of the roof and add a second floor to make it a 5-bedroom home without losing any of the land and the quiet and seclusion currently enjoyed.
Moot Place is accessed off a private treelined lane with a grassed area to one side where wildflowers grow. The sweeping driveway, with beech and hornbeam hedging to one side and walled grassed front lawns to the other, leads up to a large parking area for several cars and a garage (with power and window) that sits beneath the property. A large garden shed also sits in a tucked away position on the driveway.
The secluded gardens are a particular feature of the property, extending to at least half an acre which wraps itself around the entire property. The front garden has three terraces (one with second discreet garden shed) leading to the rear gardens with many side areas screened by trees and hedging. The whole garden combines areas of woodland and lawn with a long list of trees, mature shrubs and herbaceous borders which provide colour throughout the year and include Rhododendron, Azaleas, Camelias, a grand Oak tree, Sweet Chestnut and Walnut trees, Edward Firs, Pear, Plum and Apple trees, also blueberry, raspberry and gooseberry bushes. There is also a series of vegetable plots conveniently located by the back door. The rear gardens also include an area with three very well stocked log stores, hard standing for a small glass house and a composting area. A paved pathway wraps itself around the whole of the home.
A paved pathway, with gentle steps, from the driveway lead to a terrace and the front door which opens onto a large Hallway (with hanging space for coats and a further storage cupboard) and hatch to the loft.
A door leads from the Hallway to a bright dual aspect sitting room which includes a log burner with wooden mantel over. A large picture window overlooks the front gardens and driveway. The second window overlooks the wooden terrace, side gardens and beyond to the property’s tree lined boundary, making this a bright room and airy room. There is also a single French door opening onto the terrace.
The Study/Playroom leads off from the Sitting Room and has a large window overlooking the side gardens.
The Study leads off the snug via a door and is an internal room, perfect as an office with floor to ceiling shelving on one wall.
The large kitchen/diner has a vast selection of traditional wall hung and low-level storage cupboards and drawers with plenty of work surfaces. There is an integrated gas hob and electric oven, space and plumbing for a dishwasher and plenty of space for free a large standing fridge/freezer. The sink sits beneath a large window that overlooks the rear gardens. The dining area has plenty of space for a large dining table and chairs and dresser/sideboards. There is a further window overlooking the rear gardens. Double French doors from the dining area open onto a large patio, with BBQ, which is basked in sunshine during the Summer months so perfect for al fresco dining.
To the other end of the kitchen/diner a door leads into an inner hallway to a large utility room with more storage cupboards and plenty more space for a free-standing freezer and there is space and plumbing for a washing machine. There is hanging for many coats and plenty of room shoes and boots. This is an ideal area for pets and muddy boots. A further side door opens onto the left side of the gardens.
The inner hallway has a door to the main front Hallway.
The family bathroom (off the inner hallway) is fitted with a white suite comprising a bath, hand basin and WC with tiling around the bath and sink with a tiled lino floor.
The main Hallway leads to the bedrooms and shower room:
A large, dual aspect large double room with windows which let the light in and great views over the front/driveway and side gardens. This room is carpeted and has plenty of space for bedroom furniture.
A second double bedroom (wood laminate flooring) has fitted cupboards and window overlooking the side/front gardens.
A small double bedroom (wood laminate flooring) with window to the rear gardens.
A tiled floor shower room with shower cubicle, white WC and sink.
The property is located on a private lane of just two homes, off The Avenue, and is set in a very warm and friendly community. The property is a short walk from the shops of Weyhill which include many independent shops and an M&S Foodhall, Tesco Supermarket, Lion’s Den Coffee House, and Dylan’s Milk Barn (ice cream parlour). Haslemere Town Centre is 1.3 miles away and is a lively market town, again with a good selection of independent boutiques, restaurants, coffee shops and pubs. There are two leisure centres (one with a swimming pool).
On nearby Lion Lane are the excellent Shottermill Primary and Junior Schools (rated 'Outstanding' and 'Good' respectively by Ofsted). On the doorstep is the peace and beauty of hundreds of acres of National Trust land which includes Polecat Valley (with some of the oldest and largest Redwoods in the County), Hindhead Common and the Devil’s Punch Bowl which has stunning countryside views.
The property has excellent road and rail links with Haslemere Station just over 1 mile away with direct trains to Waterloo (under 55 mins) and is within easy reach of the A3 to London/Portsmouth.
