Country houses for sale

Ten of the best country houses for sale in Surrey, from £450,000 to £18 million

A Georgian house at under £500k is one of the wonders — but for those able to add a zero or two to that budget, the choices are astonishing.

Wentworth — £18,000,000

This is the sort of house that makes the Wentworth Estate one of the first ports of call for people looking for impressive homes in Surrey: a 12-bedroom home set in two acres of gardens which looks like something out of a glossy US soap.

The ornate style may not be to every taste, but it’s undeniable that the place has been brilliantly done — and the ceiling dome on the landing is a beautiful stroke. There is also an indoor swimming pool, gym and spa.

Bramley — £450,000

A generously-proportioned, Georgian three-bedroom character home in a hugely popular village just outside Guildford — and at under £500,000? Surely there’s a catch, you ask?

Well, yes, a couple: there’s a greengrocer one side and a pub on the other, and EVERYthing needs doing. But for those who love to be in the centre of village life, it’s perfect — and the space inside is superb, with two bathrooms, study, family room, sitting room and separate dining room.

Dunsfold — £9,800,000

Barbin’s Grange is a 100-acre estate set between Dunsfold and Chiddingfold, not far from Godalming that offers a real rural feel while still being within easy reach of London.

The main house of almost 6,000sq ft has five bedrooms, beautiful equestrian facilities and facilities including sauna and cinma room, while there is also a three-bedroom cottage included as part of the sale.

For sale with Savills. See more pictures and details for this property.

St George’s Hill — £6,950,000

This famous old estate is full of wonderful homes, but this is still a special home which the agents describe as ‘one of the estate’s most elegant and important residences’.

There’s almost 10,000sq ft of living space on offer in an intriguingly-designed home which incorporates curves, turrets and archways. The gardens — especially the outdoor pool — are delightful, and for sporty types there is a tennis court and the estate’s famed golf course just yards away.

Send — £4,950,000

Character drips from every brick of this home in a sought-after village a few miles from Guildford, though it’s not actually as ancient as it first appears: it was built in 1929 for Col Ernest Gates, of Cow & Gates fame.

There are beams salvaged from ships, gorgeous leaded windows and some of the most beautiful fireplaces and window frames we’ve seen in years, plus a separate cottage and 13 acres of land.

For sale with Strutt & Parker. See more pictures and details for this property.

Limpsfield — £3,500,000

A five-bedroom house near Oxted and Limpsfield set amid just under three and a half acres of wonderful gardens.

The house is laid out to make the most of the views from this hillside plot, with a fine orangery looking out over the garden.

For sale with Jackson-Stops. See more pictures and details for this property.

Churt — £1,900,000

Set amid the rolling Surrey Hills in a village between Farnham and Haslemere, this six-bedroom home really feels tucked away in a gorgeous woodland spot.

It’s a relatively modern build and not the prettiest of designs, but when you’ve got a setting this wonderful, and room enough for both a grand piano and a full-sized harp, we doubt anyone will complain.

For sale with Burns & Webber. See more pictures and details for this property.

Bramley — £1,000,000

True rural living, yet just minutes from Guildford, this is a medieval house that needs a little TLC to restore it to glory.

Exposed beams and huge fireplaces give huge character, while the grounds — mature trees, secret gardens, stepping stone paths, wishing well, outbuildings and greenhouse — are one of the great selling points.

For sale with Churchods. See more pictures and details for this property.

Oxted — £1,400,000

Situated on the Surrey/Kent border within easy reach of mainline rail and the M25, Ridlands Farmhouse is a fine country home in a great location.

There are four bedrooms, cellar and stables in a 2,845sq ft home — though there is a fair bit of updating to be done.

For sale with Jackson-Stops. See more pictures and details for this property.

Cranleigh — £3,950,000

The Old Rectory sits in Alfold, a village near Cranleigh that’s full of pretty houses — but this is as charming as any of them.

Thie Georgian four-bedroom house sits in over 10 acres of land, and there is ancillary accommodation as well as touches we loved — not least the vintage Aga in the kitchen, and the coffee table piled with back issues of Country Life!

For sale with Knight Frank. See more pictures and details for this property.
