About this property

TENURE: Freehold

A detached Grade II period cottage dating back to the middle of the XVI century. The cottage is full of character with an abundance of exposed beams,tiled and flagstone flooring and one of the principal features must be the fine the dual split-level reception room, which has a large open inglenook fireplace. This charming cottage has been sympathetically extended in recent years to provide a ground floor bedroom suite with its own external door, and an ensuite bathroom to the main bedroom. The dressing room could easily be returned to a seperate 4th bedroom if needed. The kitchen is fitted with granite work surfaces and oak fronted cupboards with integrated appliances. Along with a partially vaulted ceiling and exposed stonework, a real feature of the kitchen is the beehive shaped bread oven extending from the inglenook fireplace. The main bedroom has a beautiful vaulted ceiling and the ensuite bathroom has underfloor heating. The second bedroom acts as a home office and the dressing room is fitted with hand built oak wardrobes. The loft space provides substantial further storage.

The cottage is located on the Petworth Road, right in the heart of this pretty Surrey village, which comprises many period cottages, a fine old saxon church, cricket green, 2 well known inns & a small selection of local shops, an infant and junior school

and main line station to Waterloo. The surrounding countryside provides miles of beautiful countryside, ideal for walking and cycling.The neighbouring village of Milford provides access on to the A3 London/Portsmouth Road.

The house is approached via a long driveway which leads to an expansive area of parking for several cars. There are two large garden sheds one with lighting and power. The garden has distinct and separate areas. Accessed from the kitchen is a large terrace area, paved with York stone, ideal for outdoor entertainment and summer living. The lower part of the garden has steps leading down to a landscaped "sunken garden" with a well stocked fishpond and waterfall, creating a tranquil seating area, quite hidden from the house. There is a lovely "secret garden" enclosed by mature beech hedging, the centre piece being a beautiful raised ornamental pond, delightfully cooling on a hot summer day. The main lawn lies to the rear of the cottage with a traditional well with tiled canopy.The orchard benefits from mature and productive apple, pear,plum, quince and cherry trees.In all the garden extends to 0.42 acre.
