A deceptively well-proportioned period property with origins in the 17th Century, extended and updated to form a comfortable family home in pleasant gardens with rural views and an attached one bedroom cottage. Listed Grade II, the property has been carefully and sympathetically modernised and reconfigured to provide a blend of period charm, architectural features and contemporary practicality and efficiency. Overall room sizes are particularly generous, a tone set by the large entrance hall and reflected throughout the three principal reception rooms and smart, modern kitchen breakfast room. All rooms are light and sympathetically decorated, highlighting exposed timbers in parts and attractive oak block flooring in many rooms. There are 5 generous bedrooms on the first floor and three bathrooms providing two suites and a family bathroom. Adjacent to the main house is a fully independent one bedroom cottage which is currently let out. Unmodernised but well-proportioned and providing an income to the property, there is obvious scope to either incorporate this space into the main house enlarging and improving the kitchen area or for upgrading to form useful ancillary accommodation for a relative.
The property sits just under 3 miles south of Bramley, a similar distance north west of Cranleigh village and 4 miles south east of Godalming, between the hamlets of Grafham and Smithbrook. Within an area of Great Landscape Value, the property is surrounded by agricultural land, woodlans and paddock with attractive views towards the Surrey Hills. A wide range of amenities, shops, libraries, restaurants and coffee shops can be found in both Bramley and Cranleigh while the Guildford, the County Town is 6 miles to the north. For commuters, Guildford main line station has a frequent train service to Waterloo in 38 minutes while Farncombe in Godalming is just over 6 miles with a service of about 47 minutes to Waterloo. There is access onto the A3 within 7.5 miles providing easy access to the M25 and both Heathrow and Gatwick airports.. Schools in the area include St Catherine's in Bramley, Bramley Infant and Nursery School, Longacre Preparatory School in Shamley Green, Cranleigh School and Charterhouse in Godalming.
The property sits in gardens extending in all to one and half acres. A deep driveway winds through level lawns and an apple and pear orchard. There is a wide area of parking and a pretty landscaped front garden with geometric pond and attractive rill. Gardens wrap the house on all sides providing areas of vegetable beds, a discreet area of photovoltaic panels, formal lawns and wild meadow under light woodland.
An adjacent paddock in excess of 2 acres is available on a leasehold basis (subject to negotiation).
