A beautifully presented period cottage in a tucked away no through road on the edge of the Surrey Hills. Discreetly positioned down an unmade lane, Magazine Cottages formed part of the estate of workers cottages for the Chilworth gunpowder factory, dating back to the early 1900's. Recently modernised, the property now offers light and well proportioned living space, attractive character features such as refurbished sash windows, fireplaces and exposed floorboards. There are two principal reception rooms, the sitting room with an attractive logburner set into the fireplace, the dining room has a wide arch to the recently fitted kitchen allowing a feel of semi open plan living across the two spaces. The kitchen is fitted in a Shaker style with integrated fridge freezer, washing machine, gas hob and oven and a lovely double, butler-style sink. Both bedrooms are light and fit double beds and the bathroom is fitted with a contemporary, brand new suite.
Chilworth is a thriving community, lying between Albury and Shalford and yet within surprisingly easy reach of Guildford town centre. There is a parish church, village hall, infant school, junior school, well regarded pub and a convenience shop with Post Office for daily needs. There are village shops at Albury, Shere and Shalford, whilst Guildford offers a full range of shopping and entertainment facilities. Chilworth has its own station on the Redhill - Reading line providing a link to Guildford, Dorking and Gatwick. Guildford provides good transport links and a fast frequent rail service to Waterloo (35 minutes). Chilworth is surrounded by the Surrey Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is within an Area of Great Landscape Value.
The property is set back from the lane with off street parking to the front. Side access leads to the rear garden. Directly to the rear of the home is a patio area which leads on the long garden which is mainly laid to lawn.
