Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Spring Cottage was originally built, we understand, in the 17th century and was first used as Horsell Hospital. It was dramatically extended in the early 1900s and the house now offers two contrasting periods of architecture. The main access is via a conservatory style structure and a beautiful stain glass front door into an entrance lobby and hallway, off which is a fabulous formal drawing room with exposed floor boards, open fireplace and two thirds oak panelling to the walls. The formal drawing room can be found at this wing of the house which has an open working fireplace and French doors onto the rear patio. Leading through into the older part of the house and a large informal sitting room which in the past has been three separate rooms and is now opened up and subsequently creates an excellent study/office at one end, fitted with an extensive array of oak fronted furniture including drawers, cabinets and shelving as well as desk space. At the other end of this room is a fireplace and an alcove housing fitted furniture for Hi Fi, Sky TV equipment etc. The beautiful oak beams are a particular feature of this room. The kitchen is a substantial area for cooking as well as entertaining, by virtue of the breakfast room/informal dining room that leads straight off it, fitted with a comprehensive range of oak style units with extensive granite worksurfaces on two levels plus central unit and 5-burner Miele gas hob and separate eye level oven with steam oven over. The enormous utility room is well equipped with cupboards and drawers, a beautifully furnished downstairs shower room and a boiler room housing the Megaflow hot water system, twin gas boilers and plumbing for the washing machine.

Upstairs to a split first floor landing off which are all five bedrooms. The master bedroom has a delightful outlook into the leafy environs of Horsell Common via a square bay window. The large en-suite shower room is beautifully fitted with a range of white modern furniture and includes a separate shower cubicle. Each of the five bedrooms has its own individualistic style and character and all would more than comfortably afford a double bed. In the older part of the house, there are a number of exposed beams.

Garden & Exterior 
Approached from the road via remotely operated twin gates to a long driveway providing off street parking for numerous cars and vehicles, most of the lawn within the grounds fronts the house itself and there is an incredibly old and beautiful Rhododendron tree in the foreground. The driveway leads to the east side of the property and a large detached double width garage with twin up and over doors. An external staircase gives access to a superbly versatile studio room that has a plumbed sink unit, power and light. The swimming pool complex includes a lovely heated pool, a timber canopy over a large hot tub and a separate timber framed structure, ideal as a gym/changing room and incorporating a Nordic sauna and shower room. There is further lawned garden to the side of the house which is a particularly secluded area. Behind the house is an extensive area of patio providing secluded al-fresco dining areas. A gate leads to Viggory Lane and Horsell Common.

Location 
Spring Cottage is situated on Littlewick Road, directly opposite Horsell Common - beautiful countryside with around 900 acres of wood and heathland, ideal for dog owners, walkers and runners and of course children. Woking town centre is easily accessible being just short of 2 miles distant. Woking rail line is regarded as one of the best in the south east for ease of access to London Waterloo with numerous direct trains at rush hour, many taking just 20-25 minutes. There is also a regular coach service from the station to Heathrow Airport. Woking offers a wide range of shopping and leisure facilities including the New Victoria Theatre and multi screen cinema complex. Schooling is also excellent in the area.
