Full description

This Grade II listed building has been the subject of much improvement by the current occupants. The original dwelling dates back to the early 16th century and was added to 11 years ago, the vendors took down another character barn piece-by-piece in Normandy, France - and by joining the two properties, they more than doubled the size of the cottage. All the work was supervised by Surrey County Council and British Heritage, subsequently the majority of the building benefits from modern building techniques and heavy insulation. The restoration was completed approximately 7 years ago, now sits 'Middle Gingers', a truly remarkable five bedroom home offering a wealth of character. The property is presented to the market in stunning condition with notable features including: a Minstrels gallery, an oak bridge, oak beams & timbers, inglenook fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, barn dormers, priest hole, exposed brick walls and an original sword staircase - reputed to be the last one remaining in Surrey. There are numerous outbuildings including a double garage with adjoining two storey annexe/studio with shower room and kitchenette. 'Middle Gingers' is set in a secluded plot of approximately 1/3 acre and comes complete with a heated swimming pool of approximately 10 metres by 5 metres.
