A gorgeous Grade II listed Georgian cottage dating from 1776 sitting in pretty cottage gardens in an idyllic rural valley on the edge of Shamley Green village. Living space is surprisingly generous and beautifully presented with a latter addition creating a fine 17ft kitchen/breakfast room with a bespoke, hand painted kitchen with a butler sink, wood and granite worktops and space for a large dining table. There is an adjacent boot room with doors leading onto the garden and into a cloakroom housing the oil-fired central heating boiler. The two principle reception rooms include a charming sitting room with views over the cottage gardens with an open fireplace with logburner, ceiling beams, exposed brick and stone walls and wide wooden floorboards as well as a generous dining room with a superb exposed brick open fireplace, windows overlooking the rear garden and a fabulous exposed brick and timber floor. Beneath the sitting room there is a large cellar with power & light. There are three good sized bedrooms on the first floor, spacious bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower cubicle and plenty of exposed beams, fireplaces and character features. On the landing there is access to a good size loft and a walk-in airing cupboard that could possibly be converted to create an en-suite to the master bedroom (subject to planning consent).
Located on the rural edge of Shamley Green, between Wonersh, Blackheath, Cranleigh and Farley Green, this is a popular area of pretty, conservation villages in the midst of the Surrey Hills AONB just over 5 miles to the south of Guildford. The property is down a quiet country lane within 0.8 mile of the village green, recently enlarged village store, a popular cafe / deli and the two local pubs. The villages of Shamley Green and Wonersh provide a number of popular pubs, doctors' surgery and a selection of small shops for everyday needs. Guildford and Godalming (approx. 5 miles) provide more extensive leisure and shopping facilities as does Cranleigh village (3.5 miles). There are regular train services from Guildford and Godalming to London/Waterloo and the A3 provides easy access to the M25, London, Heathrow and Gatwick Airports. There is a vast choice of excellent schools in the area, including Wonersh & Shamley Green Primary School (this falls within the current catchment), Longacre in the village, St. Catherine's in Bramley, Prior's Field and Charterhouse in Godalming, Cranleigh School and Royal Grammar, Guildford High, Lanesborough and Tormead in Guildford. The surrounding countryside provides plenty of walking, cycling and riding facilities, whilst there is golf nearby at Bramley, Cranleigh and West Surrey (Enton).
The surrounding gardens are a real feature of the property and reflect the immediate environment of rural charm. Carefully tended cottage gardens surround the property on three sides with mature trees, planted beds, areas of lawn and flowering shrubs provide a high degree of privacy and interest. Towards the end of the garden is a brick-built store and garden shed. Across the lane there is an area of off-street parking in front of a two-storey attached barn that provides secure parking, an inspection pit and further storage/potential home office in the space above.
