A beautifully presented period home on the rural edge of the popular village of Shamley Green, just four miles South of Guildford. Updated, extended and carefully maintained the property successfully blends period charm and architecture with more modern ideals of informality and practicality. Cosy reception rooms with lower ceilings, exposed timbers, leaded light windows, attractive fireplaces, twin staircases and quirky architecture sit alongside a wonderful, more contemporary triple aspect kitchen breakfast room with a large, oak framed, fully glazed extension, under heated limestone flooring and beautifully fitted kitchen units, appliances and a huge expanse of Zimbabwean black granite work surface. Light, warm and large enough to really form the heart of any modern family home the kitchen has large, double doors opening on the rear terrace and garden as well as a similarly fitted adjacent utility / boot room. Striking the same modern tone is the fine master bedroom with pitched ceiling, contemporary ensuite shower room and beautiful, glazed Juliet balcony with double doors and wonderfully, private views over the rear garden.
Set back behind mature wooded common land, the property is approached, along with one other, over an unmade bridleway from the lane. Lords Hill Common is situated on the edge of Shamley Green (approx. 0.5 mile), a perennially popular village on the edge of the Surrey Hills. The village itself has a shop for daily needs, a green and 2 popular pubs. Further amenities are available in Cranleigh about 2 miles and Guildford which also has an excellent range of amenities, a mainline station with services to Waterloo in 38 minutes and access to the A3 for London and the M25. The vicinity is designated an Area of Great Landscape Value and is surrounded by miles of beautiful walking, riding and cycling countryside. There are two schools in the village, Longacre and Wonersh & Shamley Green Primary.
Gardens and overall environment are a genuine feature of this property, providing a real sense of privacy, seclusion and country life. Approached through electrically operated gates and over gravelled parking there is a useful, detached double garage converted into a home office/games room to the left of the house. Gardens extend in all to 0.35 acre and lie principally to the rear with a large stone terrace abutting the house and providing plenty of space for alfresco dining and entertaining. Rising gently from the terrace is a gravelled path and steps to rolling lawns interspersed with flowering shrubs and mature trees including yew, Scots pine and oak as well as apple, pear and quince trees.
