If walls could speak, there would be a lot of tales to tell about this magnificent Tudor country house in rural Surrey.

Over the years, it has played host to bands including Genesis, The Police and Queen (who played a roof-raising charity ball here in the 90s). But the time has come for this rock 'n' roll home in Haslemere to grow up, settle down and enjoy life at a more sedate pace.

Rhapsody is an exclusive country pad, with outdoor heated swimming pool, yoga studio and sunken hot tub.

You can lazily flick through the dailies on a chaise-lounge overhanging the pond, sit with feet swinging in the pool on hot summer days and let nights slip away around the warmth of the fire in the barbecue hut, hidden deep between the evergreens.

Packed to the rafters with carefully collated art and filled to the brim with eccentric personality, Rhapsody remedies the monotony of everyday life and reignites the artist within.

Meticulous design, daring interiors and extreme comfort come together in perfect matrimony at this luxury Surrey country house, where all matters of normality seem a lifetime away.

With a kitchen designed with chefs in mind and six luxurious bedrooms for long, lazy lie-ins, here is a home which will whisk you away from routine and land you in bucolic bliss.

A private yoga studio hidden beneath the trees, a floating glass reading room with a log burner on the crayfish pond, even a Moroccan pool house with its own kitchen for al fresco dining; there really is nothing ordinary about Rhapsody’s 20 acres of blissful grounds.

Wander between the plentiful sculptures scattered around the gardens, swim against the jet stream of the heated outdoor swimming pool or simply sink into the hot tub and let all worries of life wash away as the moon rises in all its glory overhead.

Owners the Attias family say: "We have created as many spaces as possible in which to enjoy the house and gardens, so please, treat this home as if it were your own; lie in the dell on a sunny afternoon, wander the paths in the woods, lose yourself in a book in the reading room, unwind for an hour in the yoga hut, barbeque by the pool, perch on the bedroom balcony at twilight listening to the birdsong, sink into the hot tub in the early evening and enjoy supper in the conservatory illuminated by the tree lights." Oh, go on then...

This property is available to book via Unique Homestays from £11,995 per week.
