A much loved detached character house which has been in the same family's ownership for nearly 35 years. The house which probably dates from the 1930's provides considerable potential for further extension, and for the creation of a bungalow annexe by way of converting the double garage (subject to planning permission). This garage was informally altered many years ago to create a home office/hobbies/games room (centrally heated together with a cloakroom). Initially approached via the hallway, the accommodation includes a fine double sitting room with a log burner, dining/family room with access into both the kitchen/breakfast room, and excellent covered and sheltered loggia. Upstairs there are three bedrooms including a principal suite, with the family bathroom and downstairs shower room serving the remaining two bedrooms. The house is well positioned within its plot allowing for views across the Rhododendron studded formal garden, to the woods beyond.
Occupying a particularly favoured and historic location within the village, in an area designated of Great Landscape Value, away from main roads, but still within 0.5 mile from Elstead's Village Green. Westbrook Hill leads out from the village, past a lovely old farm, and terminates with access on to open countryside, which include Hankley, Thursley and Bagmoor Commons, all providing long walks and rides. Elstead is a thriving village, located between the larger towns of Godalming and Farnham, with the historic 13th century St James' Church,(glimpses of which can be enjoyed from the property) local village school (children aged 4 - 11) local shops including a General Stores, Post Office and Chemist, choice of pubs and restaurants, Doctors and Dental practices, and village cafe. For those commuting the nearest mainline stations can be found in Godalming, Farnham or Milford, all reaching Waterloo in approx. under an hour. Milford also provides easy access onto the A3 into Guildford, and links with the M25 at Wisley, for ease to Heathrow and Gatwick airports. A wide choice of additional schools are within the immediate vicinity including Charterhouse, Prior's Field and 6th Form college in Godalming, Aldo at Shackleford, St Catharine's in Bramley together with The Royal Grammar School, Tormead, and High School in Guildford.
Approached via an expansive drive that provides plenty of car parking and serves a detached double garage which has been informally converted to provide a home office/games/hobbies room which has gas central heating and a separate cloakroom. The additional outbuildings include a large garden store/workshop, 2 additional garages, 2 greenhouses and a summerhouse. The formal gardens are level, enclosed by deer proof fencing, and are simply arranged as tree and Rhododendron studded lawns, with York stone terraces. Gates lead out into the woods with a meandering stream resulting in a pleasant walk literally on the doorstep. In all just under 5 acres.
