An imposing manor house, set in 78 acres and enjoying an elevated position with far-reaching viewsSet within 78 acres and with origins believed to date back to the late 18th century, Maybanks presents a superb opportunity for those seeking a property of immense character and charm with potential to extend and improve, coupled with the option of acquiring six additional estate houses. Unusually, the house showcases three types of build including a tiled, hipped roof that is gabled at one end, a Flemish bond brick with blue headers, and a string course between the ground and first floors.The property may be accessed via two separate, long sweeping driveways and is a hidden gem, being wonderfully situated within its extensive grounds and with an exceptional level of privacy, belying its proximity to local amenities and transport links. Due to its elevated position, it also enjoys captivating far-reaching views over its own land and surrounding countryside towards the North Downs.Internally, the extensive accommodation doesn't disappoint and although the house is in the midst of renovation and improvement, it continues to provide excellent family living and entertaining space. The many interesting and original features include the welcoming reception hall with painted wood-panelled walls, flagstone floor, bay window with built-in window seat, and inglenook fireplace; the galleried dining room; the turret viewing room; cellar providing useful storage space; ornate cornicing; excellent ceiling heights; sash windows; impressive fireplaces. It is worth noting that planning permission has been granted to extend the ground floor by way of a single-storey extension that spans the width of the rear of the house and works have already commenced. Due to its westerly aspect, the extension will provide superb space in which to relax and enjoy the sunsets. There is additional permission for a single side extension for leisure use including a swimming pool. The house has the advantage of two separate staircases rising to the first floor, thereby creating flexibility with the north wing enjoying its own independent access and providing self-contained living space, ideal for guest or au-pair accommodation.This is a rarely available opportunity for those seeking a renovation project to restore a manor house to its former glory, and perhaps even surpass what has gone on before it.Gardens and groundsApproached via either a long driveway meandering through woodland or the second, with more of an open-air feel, Maybanks creates a memorable and striking first impression.The grounds are truly a wonderful feature of the property, successfully combining gardens with parkland-style grounds to create an outstanding setting for the property.To the south of the house is an ‘all weather' tennis court and also discreetly positioned temporary stables and paddock; there is planning permission for a permanent stable block and garaging.
