Built in a classical Georgian style, Ludlams Gate is one of few properties on Monks Well in its original form with an annexe added in 1995. Original features remain throughout the property which include elegant room proportions and high ceilings, timber parquet floors and large sash windows.
The property is well-presented throughout however there is considerable scope to improve the house or create something new (sstp).
The grand central entrance arrives into a welcoming entrance hall with an original oak parquet floor. Here there is a guest cloakroom.
Double doors lead into a classically proportioned triple aspect drawing room, with original Maple wood parquet floor and a central elegant fireplace with a log burner. This room enjoys excellent views southward out to the rear garden and views beyond.

The annexe is connected to the main house via a link from the kitchen. There is a utility room and a family room, which become a kitchenette and sitting room for the double bedroom and en suite on the first floor giving the annexe the potential to be self-contained.

On one side of the front garden, the planting has been kept informal, with pathways leading between the established ferns, rhododendrons and trees. This woodland setting provides the front of the house a great amount of privacy. The other side of the front garden is more open and is large and level enough for family cricket games. The parkland setting with a stunning selection of mature trees at the border provides a grand arrival to the property.
To the rear there is raised terrace, overlooking a formal area of lawn where there are steps leading down to a lower viewing spot.
The grounds extend to approximately 2.35 acres and further include a pathway leading through the surrounding woodland where there is cave known as Father Foot's Cave. The pathway continues to the furthest edge of the plot where there is direct access on to a footpath which leads westward, all the way to the eastern edge of Farnham town centre.
Within the garden are two sheds which provide garden storage and there is a raised and fenced in vegetable garden.
The plots setting and size are the true feature of the property as they offer an incredible vantage point for the house and a fabulous place the new owners to enjoy and explore.
