Tenure: Freehold

Hawthorn Cottage is a beautiful period cottage. Dating back to the late 1700s there is an abundance of character throughout.

The current owners have extended and refurbished the property over the last 24 years to create an absolutely stunning house. There is a wonderful fusion of old meets new and the modern additions have been very sympathetically done with particular features including:

On the ground floor there is a lovely family room with working feature fireplace, a large private study and a spacious utility/boot room with adjoins the stunning kitchen/dining/family room which is at the heart of the home. With beautiful natural stone flooring throughout, large windows and French doors leading out to the garden creating further living and entertaining space. To one corner of the room there is a stylish multi fuel burning stove and to the other end of the room is the kitchen which is equipped with under floor heating, a large island with granite work tops and breakfast bar and fitted appliances which include a wine fridge, two dishwashers and range cooker.

All the bedrooms are on the first floor and are of excellent sizes. There is a large master bedroom with en suite bathroom and dressing room along with five further bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms are accessed by a separate staircase and share a bathroom and three further bedrooms all have en suite bath/shower rooms.

A huge bonus to Hawthorn Cottage is the separate one bedroom annexe. Split over two floors, the annexe has been completed to an extremely high standard and is immaculately presented. The kitchen/living area is modern and has the added bonus of a breakfast bar. There is a large bedroom with an en suite bathroom equipped with both a bath and large shower which is very modern and stylish.

Hawthorn Cottage is situated in a quiet spot tucked away just off the cricket green in the heart of Hambledon, a small village set within the Surrey Hills, an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has active cricket and football clubs, a nursery school, welcoming pub and a thriving community run shop and post office - all within a short distance of the property. Witley station is a short distance away for commuters and older children seeking independent transportation. The nearby village of Milford has a variety of shops, including Secretts Farm shop, a butchers, petrol station and numerous convenience stores.

The historic and picturesque market town of Godalming, just over 5 miles away, offers an excellent selection of shops and supermarkets, together with a good choice of restaurants. Guildford, less than 11 miles away, provides more comprehensive shopping and recreational facilities such as the Surrey Sports Park, G Live and Yvonne Arnaud Theatre.

Excellent road and rail links are within easy reach, with the A3 just over 4 miles away, which in turn connects to the M25 giving access to Heathrow and Gatwick Airports. Milford mainline station is 3 miles away which offers a train service to London Waterloo in 50 minutes. Alternatively Godalming offers a more frequent service to London Waterloo in 47 minutes.

A wide range of leisure activities can be enjoyed in the area including extensive walking and riding in the surrounding countryside. Winkworth Arboretum, Hydon's Ball and Hydon Heath are nearby, all of which are owned by the National Trust. The West Surrey Golf Club is also home to the local tennis club.

The area is very well served by excellent schools, among which are Barrow Hills, Aldro, St. Hilary's, Charterhouse, Prior's Field, Godalming Sixth Form College, Cranleigh and St. Catherine's in Bramley.

Hawthorn Cottage sits in a plot of around 4 acres and is extremely private and secluded. Large wooden gates give access onto a large gravel driveway where there is a double car port, ample parking and a separate annexe. The garden wraps round the back and side of the property and is mostly laid to lawn. A delightful terrace area leads from the house and provides lots of space for entertaining and el fresco dining. A charming pergola walk way leads down towards the Party Barn and to the other side of the garden is decking which features a built in hot tub. This is a garden for both children and adults alike and is a superb feature to the property.
