A remarkable home dating back to the early part of the last century, sitting in beautifully maintained, level gardens in the heart of this popular, semi rural village on the edge of the Surrey Hills AONB. Light, well proportioned living space provides a blend of architectural character and interest alongside more contemporary ideas of informality and convenience. Updated and modernised by our client the property has been beautifully designed and finished to the very highest of quality. The heart of the home is a large, double aspect kitchen breakfast room recently refitted with a Smallbone kitchen with granite work surface, a Total Control Aga and a range of Miele appliances. Beautiful Cotswold limestone flooring is underheated and continues through into the adjacent utility room, which is similarly fitted with Smallbone units and provides access into the adjoining garage. Reception space is open plan but splits easily into two distinct areas with solid oak flooring, a solid fuel burner, french doors opening onto the rear terrace and garden and a remarkable, semi-octagonal sitting room with vaulted ceiling and fabulous views over the gardens. All bedrooms are on the first floor and are generous in size with recently updated family bathroom and ensuite to the master with large walk in shower and contemporary Fired Earth tiling. The master bedroom is particularly of note with a high pitched ceiling and Juliet balcony.
The property lies in a peaceful residential road in the heart of West Horsley, a small village situated about 5 miles East of Guildford, on the northern edge of the Surrey Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Local amenities include 2 popular pubs, a highly rated junior school and a small selection of stores. East Horsley, 2 miles distant, has a wider selection of shops and a railway station providing commuter services to London Waterloo in about 43 minutes. There is fast and easy access to the A3, which in turn leads to the M25, Heathrow and Gatwick Airports. Guildford is easily accessible and provides extensive shopping, educational and recreational facilities, including Surrey Sports Park, Spectrum Leisure Centre and the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre. Although convenient for transport links, this location is the gateway to miles of wonderful protected countryside, ideal for cycling, walking and horse riding. Schools in the area include St. Theresa's and The Howard both in Effingham, Glenesk in East Horsley, Cranmore and The Raleigh School in West Horsley, Manor House at Bookham, Guildford High, Tormead, Lanesborough and The Royal Grammar School in Guildford.
The property is set back from the lane behind a painted picket fence, gravelled driveway and pretty front garden. Principally the gardens lie to the rear and extend in all to a quarter of an acre. Extensively landscaped and planted to provide various sun terraces, beautifully stocked flower beds, fruit and vegetable plots, pathways and level lawn, the gardens are a real feature, designed to mature and develop over the coming years. Just to the rear of the house there is also a useful detached timber studio, heated and insulated for year round use.
