The house was built around 1905 and the majority of its principle rooms have been designed to make the most of the far-reaching views over West Sussex, as they are fitted with features such as balconies and bay windows.

High Marley, which is listed on the Strutt Parker website, also boasts a master bedroom with an en-suite dressing room plus four further bedrooms and bathrooms.

The home is close to Marley Common which boasts acres of National Trust land.

High Marley is also situated close to the West Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire borders.

Liz Berman from Strutt & Parker said: ‘The house has the most stunning, far-reaching views. You can see all the way to the coast, which is about a 45-minute drive away.

‘It’s all open views, there’s not really much disturbing it. It’s on a pinchpoint of a hill so you’re elevated and you can’t really see your neighbours.

‘Although you’re on a residential road only five minutes from the town you feel isolated from everything but at the same time you can be at the station in five minutes which takes you into London in about 50 minutes.

‘There are some properties on another hill but they are looking away from the coast so they won’t have the same fantastic views and they are far enough away from this property.

‘It really is a lovely spot, the views are absolutely stunning.

‘The house is in good condition but the decor is maybe a little dated and someone may want to upgrade it.

‘But it’s a big beautiful house in six acres of gardens that encompass the house, adding to the privacy.

‘Haslemere is very popular – it has great transport links and good schools nearby and everything you could want without having to be in an industrial town.

‘I think it would appeal to a family, perhaps where one of the parents still commutes to London.’
