East Lodge was built around 1898 as a gate house to a large country house (Priorswood Lodge). The property sits in lovely gardens of about a third of an acre with additional land rented from the Water Board at £170pa, bringing it up to around a half acre in total. The Lodge was extended during the early 1990's in complete character incorporating both exposed timbering and Bargate Stone. The property provides beautifully proportioned accommodation which features plenty of storage space with two staircases allowing for a self contained master suite, although the first floor could be simply reconfigured. The triple aspect reception space is arranged on a semi open plan basis and includes sitting, dining and study areas. The kitchen which features a walk-in larder could be readily enlarged within the existing house.
Occupying a convenient location on the corner of this highly regarded private road, Priorswood is situated on the edge of the Surrey Hills, a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Lodge being particularly accessible for Prior's Field, Aldro and Charterhouse Schools. The A3 London/Portsmouth Road is within about 0.5 of a mile providing easy access into Guildford, Surrey Sports Park, University, and The Royal Surrey Hospital, down to the South Coast, and also links with the M25 at Wisley which in turn gives access to Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
For those commuting by rail mainline stations Godalming and Farncombe serve Waterloo from about 42 minutes.
Godalming is an attractive town, which provides a semi-pedestrianised shopping environment within its historic High and Church Streets, with large branches of Waitrose and Sainsbury's supermarkets, together with a wide choice of restaurants and cafes.
The County Town of Guildford is about 4 miles away, whilst lovely countryside is also immediately at hand. Golf courses are at Hurtmore, Milford (including the West Surrey with an adjoining tennis club), and at Puttenham. Charterhouse School also provides an excellent private health club/fitness centre, with an indoor heated swimming pool.
Compton village has a fine old church together with the famous and fascinating Watts Gallery and the highly regarded Withies Inn.
The garden surrounds the property and includes a large gravel driveway with parking for several cars as well as serving the double garage with electrically operated door. There is a range of additional outbuildings including a workshop, greenhouse, summerhouse, further garage (machines) plus three garden sheds and composting/potting area. Within the lovely level garden which is full of interest are a number of specimen trees, shrubs, small water gardens and some strategically placed sitting areas and terraces. The additional garden rented from the Water Board is under planted spring bulbs and in essence is a Bluebell wood.
