A very special period cottage overlooking the Tillingbourne River and ford in the heart of Shere village. Offered for sale with the benefit of no onward chain the property dates probably to around the turn of the last century and has latterly been updated and extended to provide friendly, open plan and a more contemporary style of living. Clean, light and neutral decor throughout accentuates the feeling of space and views over gardens, woodland and allotments front and rear belie its proximity to the village centre. Layout is simple and friendly with a generous kitchen dining room providing a generous space to live, dine and entertain. There is a downstairs cloak / shower room and a charming conservatory as well as a light sitting room with wonderful views and doors opening onto the gardens.
The property is situated on the Tillingbourne River in the picturesque village of Shere right in the heart of the Surrey Hills AONB. This is a highly sought-after village with a vibrant community, a fine church, two highly regarded public houses, doctors surgery, infant school, nursery, recreation ground, swimming pool and a selection of shops for daily needs. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, the village is about 6 miles from Guildford which has an excellent range of shopping, educational, cultural and leisure facilities and a main line station with services to London Waterloo in approximately 38 minutes. Gomshall village, about 1.5 miles has a branch line which connects with Guildford and Dorking and there are further shopping facilities in Dorking and Cranleigh, each about 7 miles distant.
Set back from the road behind a small front garden there is side access to the front door and to the rear garden. Facing almost due south, this is a remarkable, mature and peaceful space that belies its proximity to the centre of the village. Cottage style landscaping and well stocked beds provides colour, interest and privacy surrounding a central lawn and pretty terrace adjacent to the house.
