A beautifully maintained and stylishly presented period family home, full of character and dating back we believe to around 1650, providing flexible accommodation with two ground floor bedrooms and bathrooms, which really lends itself to providing an annexe or nanny suite if required. The main sitting room has exposed timbers, herringbone woodblock flooring and large inglenook fireplace. Of particular note is the stunning kitchen, which has been recently fitted to a high standard and has extensive painted cabinets with granite work surfaces and central island/breakfast bar. Integrated appliances include Siemens double oven and electric induction hob, fridge and freezer, and dishwasher, and there is underfloor heating. This is open plan with a step down to the family room with bi-fold doors opening onto the rear terrace. From the first floor there are distant views over the surrounding countryside to Pitch Hill, Hascombe and Hindhead.
The cottage is situated towards the end of a private road off Knowle Lane and is about 1.5 miles from Cranleigh high street which has a good range of supermarkets, banks, specialist shops, restaurants, a health centre, sports centre and library. There are excellent schools in the area including Longacre, Cranleigh School and St Catherine's at Bramley, with further schools in Guildford. For commuters there are rail links to London from Guildford, Dorking and Horsham. The A3 at Guildford links London to the south coast, and the M25 at J10 gives access to London's airports. There is access near the house to public footpaths and bridleways including the Downslink Way, which are ideal for walking and cycling within many miles of open countryside.
The house is approached through a gated driveway and opens out into an expansive private gravelled courtyard providing ample parking. There is a double and single garage and 4 stables and further outbuildings. Indian sandstone terraces provide occasional sitting areas with ornamental beds and borders. Immediately adjoining the back of the house is a stone terrace with rose and creeper clad pergola providing dappled shade and a perfect setting for outdoor entertaining. There is a further paved patio with ornamental fishpond and a vegetable garden and greenhouse. The garden is laid to lawn and has many well stocked beds and borders with a variety of mature shrubs and plants. The lawn extends away from the house through a rose clad archway, with mature trees and hedgerows providing seclusion and privacy and backs on to open fields. In all the grounds extend to approximately 0.59 acre.
To the front the property is approached through electric gates to a large gravelled courtyard with a single garage, stable block and store rooms to one side. To the other is a further store room and attached double garage. A paved terrace extends around the front of the property and there are shrub and flower beds. A side access leads to the south-facing rear garden with paved terrace and pergola, green house, vegetable plot, lawns, 2 ponds and a summerhouse. There are further lawns with flower and shrub beds, saplings and mature trees and the garden overlooks fields at the end.
