Tilford Barrows is an impressive country house understood to have been built in 1883. Set in about 10 acres and facing south with the potential of good views, the house sits in a very desirable spot, tucked away in a secluded woodland setting between Elstead and Tilford. Tilford Barrows is an excellent example of a large Victorian family house with a mass of retained original features typical of the period with beautifully proportioned, balanced accommodation with particularly light rooms with high ceilings. The house which is not listed, has been in the same family for almost 50 years and therefore provides an exciting opportunity for an incoming buyer.
The three principal reception rooms offer generous and elegant accommodation and with access to the spacious terrace and gardens are ideally suited to formal entertaining as well as relaxed family living. The drawing room and sitting room both have beautiful feature fireplaces and a large box bay window enjoying views out to the gardens. The dining room shares the same garden views and is adorned with traditional wall panelling and a more delicate fireplace, there is also a study. The accommodation on the first floor comprises six bedrooms, including the spacious master bedroom, with the neighbouring smaller bedroom becoming an en suite. The layout allows for excellent flexibility.
Within the house on the first floor there is a flat comprising a kitchen with adjoining bedroom, sitting room, cloakroom and bathroom.
