THIS Sprawling country estate with 17 acres and a secret treehouse can now be yours for a cool £5.25million.

Old Timbers Estate, located in Surrey, is nestled within a sprawling 17-acres of grounds that sits at the end of a long oak and chestnut tree-lined drive.



The estate comprises of an eight-bedroom timber-beamed detached home, a tennis court, paddocks and stables.

Also included in the sale is an additional two-bedroom cottage which has two reception rooms, a kitchen, one bathroom and an attic room.

Hidden away in the 17 acres is a large tree-house supported by several stilts for the children's safety.

The treehouse comes with a ladder enabling kids to climb up and enjoy their own secluded paradise.

"We had an amazing treehouse built, complete with bunk beds, so they could have sleepovers with their friends," said the current owners, who have not been named.

The 5486 sq. ft Send house was built in 1929 for Ernest Gates – a member of the family which founded Cow and Gate.


“We purchased Old Timbers almost twenty years ago, attracted by its space, its privacy and the convenience of its location," the owners said.

“It was important that the house be large enough to accommodate not just our immediate family, but also our guests and all the belongings we had accumulated over the years.

“The house has a large footprint, meaning we could afford to spread out and give the children their own space to grow."


The current owners went on to explain how the largest room in the house was left to their children to entertain themselves and their friends.

"We designated the largest room in the house – thirty-five-foot long – as the ‘play room’ and gave it to them as a place to keep their games and entertain their friends after school," they said.

With plenty of land means plenty of wildlife with the owners explaining how they deliberately left the wooded areas for the wildlife to flourish.

“Externally, the estate includes a cottage, paddocks, wooded areas and ponds as well as formal gardens and areas we have deliberately left ‘untamed’ to help the wildlife," they said.

"There are plenty of deer, foxes, rabbits and badgers."

The next buyer will certainly have plenty of space for the entire family with the current owners calling it a "paradise for children".

“The benefits of all this space, inside and out, were amply demonstrated during the recent lockdown," they said.

“It’s a great place to live and it’s been a paradise for the children.

"It’s been an idyllic place for the whole family.”
