A delightful 1920s semi-detached house having been sympathetically updated over the years to offer well-presented and proportioned accommodation while retaining many of its charming original features. The property was originally part of the Guinness estate and was used as a butler’s cottage, which explains the wealth of character especially in the top-floor family room where there is an impressive brick chimney breast and oak-framed vaulted ceiling with magnificent views to the South Downs. Externally the tile-hung elevations are relieved by oak-framed leaded windows and throughout the property there are beautiful examples of oak joinery. The ground floor enjoys a spacious layout with a sitting room including a log burning stove, a kitchen/dining room with open fire and a welcoming entrance hall.
The three bedrooms are arranged together on the first floor, two with fitted storage, and benefit from lovely views across the surrounding countryside and gardens. There is also a master bathroom with integrated bath.
The property is located on the outskirts of the pretty village of Holmbury St Mary nestling in the lovely Surrey Hills. In the village there are two pubs with surrounding countryside adjoining the wonderful Hurtwood Common. The nearby village of Abinger Hammer has a local shop and Kingfisher Farm shop for most everyday items. Belmont and Hurtwood House Schools are nearby, as is Abinger Common Primary School. The towns of Dorking to the east and Guildford to the west are readily accessed via the A25, providing comprehensive shopping and leisure facilities. Train services are available to London from both towns. There is also a station at Gomshall with services from Reading to Tonbridge. The M25 can be accessed at Leatherhead (Junction 9) or Guildford (Junction 10).
There is off-road parking to the side of the property within a gravel driveway, with parking for several cars in front of and adjacent to a concrete car port. Further outbuildings include a tool shed and a wooden summerhouse. The delightful cottage garden is arranged over several tiers and features a lower level patio area with a pergola over shaded by climbers, areas of lawn with a built-in barbecue, a well and a huge variety of well-established plants and trees. A gate at the rear of the garden provides access to an area of land with a right of way to walkers. Planning permission has been obtained for a detached double barn-style garage with room above (now expired).
