Full description

The property is approached from a five bar electric gate and is situated in a truly stunning location offering tranquillity and privacy. The cottage is hidden away down a single track gravel drive in one of Surrey's most picturesque hamlets Friday Street, with glorious walks on your doorstep.

The property has been in the same ownership for the past 22 years and has had a varied history over the centuries. The property was once believed to have been used as a hunting lodge for the Earl of Arundel dating back to the 1580's. The gardens back on to Severalls Copse, which along with the Cottage was owned by the Duke of Norfolk. The Duke sold the copse and the cottage in 1930. After the sale Severalls Copse was believed to have been saved by the renowned composer Vaughan Williams and a significant donation from conservationist and author, Beatrix Potter, who together with public donations bought the land to prevent it from development and gave it to the National Trust. Today, the rear of the garden gives immediate access to the protected copse.

The cottage has undergone continuous improvements and a recent refurbishment, including the very recent addition of a sympathetic two storey rear extension, to create a modern yet characterful country retreat.

The mature gardens are beautifully landscaped and mostly laid to lawn. Entertaining space has been created with the detailed use of terracing. A summer house at the top of the garden also offers a fun vantage point from where one can enjoy the evening sun. A picturesque stream runs along the bottom of the garden and a home office has been created in one of the outbuildings, furthermore the property has a single garage and a timber shed with power.
