Shepewood House is a classic detached andldquo;Arts and Crafts” influenced family house which occupies an excellent position on the rural fringe of this sought after village directly adjacent to farmland and with a southerly aspect from the garden towards the established grounds of Lord Wandsworth College.The house originates, we understand, from circa 1912 and from its construction to this day has been the residence of the Headmaster to the College and is therefore being offered to the open market for the first time andndash; a truly prestigious opportunity.Arranged over 3 floors, the house has most striking elevations of a style which we believe are unique in the local area and provides accommodation of exceptional proportions.There is a light and spacious atmosphere created by the many classic windows and with various architectural features typical of the period. Whilst comfortably appointed there is scope for general updating to enable a buyer to reflect their own style and preferences as the house enters private ownership for the first time.
Approached by a sweeping gated driveway there is an extensive parking area to the front of the house leading to the garage situated in a secondary parking area on the western boundary.The classically landscaped garden is principally south facing with a large level lawn to the rear beyond a paved terrace, flanked by mature herbaceous borders.Intersected by mature hedges there are separate areas of the garden with a wide variety of mature specimen trees and shrubs creating an interesting and established setting in a secluded environment.On the eastern side of the garden is a less formal area approached by a pathway with classic stone piers. Within this area is an interesting brick detached garden room with fireplace and adjoining store.The adjoining field/potential paddock lies on the eastern side of the principal garden curtilage.Agents Note:There is a public footpath between this principal garden curtilage and additional land. This links to a footpath across the northern edge of the grounds and will be included within the Title but separated by fencing.
