THE APPROACH
Approached via an impressive, private driveway off a country lane on the West Surrey/ Hampshire borders, this stunning property offers substantial and luxurious accommodation
arranged over four floors. The plan for the main house includes four-bedroom suites, three further bedrooms with family bathroom, five reception rooms and separate one-bedroom staff annexe.

The detached gatehouse is located at the top of the driveway and will comprise three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an open plan kitchen/dining/living room.

In addition to the main house there is a large detached garage with parking for three cars including a one bedroom flat above.

Planning permission has been granted for a leisure complex featuring a swimming pool and two changing rooms, as well as a tennis court (price on application)

QUALITY & CRAFTMANSHIP
Surrounded by landscaped gardens, Luckhurst is set in a secluded woodland glade atop a hill, approached by a private drive.

Luckhurst is designed as a traditional country house, inspired by Georgian Neo-Classical architecture. The main house and single storey wing are constructed of rendered elevations with arched door surrounds, stone detailing and sash windows beneath a natural slate roof. These features continue through to the detached three-bay garage/annexe above which is constructed from the same palette of materials and laid out in a rectilinear form.

In contrast to the main house there is a separate red brick gatehouse which is designed as an entrance lodge. Constructed using vernacular materials, it features a timber framed porch, prominent central chimney, bay windows and plain clay roof tiles.

Additionally, planning permission has been granted for a pool house and tennis court.
