April Cottage has been much extended and modernised over the years, giving us the beautiful family home we see today. While the property has been well looked after by the current owners, it offers the most wonderful opportunity for the incoming purchaser to extend and/or modernise, subject to the usual planning consents. Of note is the wonderful drawing room, with a south-facing ‘glazed wall’ allowing the room to be flooded with natural light. This room also benefits from an attractive wooden floor, good ceiling height and has an old wood-burning stove at its heart. It is evident that as the house has evolved over the years, each new addition to the house has been carefully considered and every effort has been made to use the best quality local
materials in each case. The property is built of local stone, some rendered brick elevations, as well as extensive tile hanging, all under a handmade clay-tiled roof.
April Cottage occupies an unspoilt rural position on the edge of Haslemere, in the renowned Polecat Valley and surrounded by magnificent National Trust woodland. Haslemere offers excellent shopping facilities for day to day needs, a choice of restaurants, pubs and coffee shops along with a tennis club and The Herons Leisure Centre. The mainline train station provides services to London
Waterloo in approximately 56 minutes. More comprehensive shopping facilities are available in
the towns of Godalming and Guildford which are easily accessed via the A286 and the A3. There is an exceptional choice of schools in the area, including The Royal Senior School and St. Ives in
Haslemere, St. Edmund’s, The Royal Junior School and Amesbury at Hindhead and Highfield School and Brookham in Liphook. Other schools near by include Charterhouse at Godalming, Barrow Hills and King Edward’s at Witley and Cranleigh School slightly further afield. Communications in the area are excellent, with London being approximately 40 miles away and the A3 at Hindhead giving access to the south coast, the M25 and Gatwick, Heathrow and Southampton airports.
The property is entered via a five-bar gate, leading onto a gravel driveway, providing parking for several cars. The gardens surrounding the house are mainly laid to lawn with some established shrub borders, and benefit from
a mature mixed hedge, providing great privacy. To the west of the property is a belt of mixed deciduous woodland, with some remarkable specimen trees providing a sea of constantly
changing colours throughout the year.
