Munstead Plat occupies an enviable location, just 2 miles to the south of Godalming. Munstead Heath Road is an attractive and much sought-after rural lane between Bramley and Godalming and lies in the heart of the Surrey Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The nearby town of Godalming offers an extensive range of local amenities, including the main line station from which there is a fast and frequent service to London (Waterloo), with journey times from around 47 minutes. A more extensive selection of shopping, leisure and cultural amenities will be found at Guildford. The A281 and A3 provide ready access to London, the south coast, Heathrow and Gatwick airport and the national motorway network.
There is a wide choice of both state and private schools in the area, including Aldro, St Catherine's, Prior's Field, Charterhouse and Cranleigh. Recreational opportunities include golf at several nearby clubs, including Bramley and The West Surrey; polo at Cowdray Park and Ewhurst and racing at Epsom and Sandown Park. In addition, the surrounding area provides unrivalled walking, riding and cycling.
Munstead Plat, believed to date from the 1940s, has colour washed elevations, with tile hanging to the first floor, under a pitched tiled roof. On the ground floor there are four reception rooms, an open-plan kitchen/breakfast/family room, utility room and cloakroom and shower room. The first floor comprises a master bedroom with dressing room and bathroom, four further bedrooms, one with en suite shower room, and family bathroom. The second floor provides a guest suite and a further room provides a home office.
The house is approached by a sweeping drive, flanked by trees and rhododendrons, leading to a parking area. The neighbouring cottage has right of way to part of the drive. There is a garage with an open-bay garage attached. The gardens to the front and rear of the property are a particular feature, beautifully presented with mature plants and shrubs. The enclosed pool area boasts a pool house with two changing rooms and a brick built barbecue. On the east side of the property a terrace provides an ideal area for outside entertaining. Enclosed by a wild shrub and flower hedge and espaliered trees, the vegetable garden has raised beds.
