About this property
"Mandrakes is like nothing I have seen before in the Surrey Hills. The peace and tranquility of this rural haven create the complete country retreat"
Tom Witchell, Partner
A rare opportunity to acquire a detached home of great character in an idyllic setting in the heart of The Surrey Hills with beautiful views over lakes and woodland beyond.
Mandrakes was a former workers cottage to the surrounding Wotton Estate offering complete isolation set up in a commanding position away from other properties and passing traffic. The property itself, has period origins with later additions and offers cottage style accommodation comprising sociable open plan kitchen/dining room ideal for entertaining, which in turn, leads to a sitting room with a working fireplace. There is a large conservatory positioned off the sitting room which has a lovely view over the swimming pool and gardens beyond and there is also the benefit of a study/breakfast room and a downstairs cloakroom. On the first floor, there is a large master bedroom with free standing bath and vanity unit, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Wonderful views can be enjoyed from all of the bedrooms and in particular, the master bedroom which overlooks the lakes at Wotton.
A particular feature of Mandrakes is the large entertainment barn which is marginally smaller than the main house offering excellent guest/ancillary accommodation or potential income revenue. This beautiful Leith Hill stone barn is not a standard barn conversion with wide stone walls and many character features offering an amazing entertaining space with an open plan kitchen/dining room, which in turn, leads through to a large sitting area with an impressive central fireplace. There is also a ground floor bathroom and study. Whilst on the first floor, there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. Being positioned within close proximity of the house it offers an excellent overflow entertaining space with its own private garden and wonderful views over the lakes.
The gardens at Mandrakes are simply stunning. They border the property on all sides and are predominantly laid to lawn interspersed with established flower and shrub borders and many private areas of garden, in which, to relax. There is a terraced area to the side of the property ideal for outside entertaining with a central swimming pool taking advantage of the southerly elevations. Steps lead up to a further area of garden with wild flowers which leads through to a kitchen garden and a large greenhouse. There is a further wooded area which is currently leased behind the old kitchen wall which offers a useful place for compost and bonfires. A sweeping driveway leads to ample parking and an Oak frame car barn.
