Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Lovers of period properties will really appreciate this house, dating from 1650, for all its wonderful character features and how it has evolved over the years to adapt to modern living. Typical with the Tudor period, there are the classic black timbered and white plastered walls, particularly resplendent around the rising staircase, as well an impressive inglenook brick fireplace and old wooden beams in the sitting room which is the oldest part of the property. The front section was added in the 1920's to create a shop, a draper's store we believe, which has an original quarry tiled floor and is currently used as a dining/entrance hall. Unusually for an old property, there is plenty of light due to the ample windows which have been sympathetically replaced in the current owner's time. Throughout the house and in keeping with the character, there are different floor levels and pitched ceilings again adding to the overall charm.

The kitchen/study at the rear has been added and extended in two phases over the years and gives direct access to the garden via French doors. There is an attractive slate floor, hand-made solid oak units concealing the appliances and a combination of black granite and varnished wooden worktops. Light floods in from the three roof lanterns in the ceiling, which also has plumbed in speakers (along with the master bedroom and bathroom).

Upstairs, the master bedroom is impressive with a split level wood floor currently arranged as a sleeping area and a sitting room area, a pitched ceiling, double aspect windows overlooking the village green and a pretty brick feature fireplace. In addition, there are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

This is a delightful property offering a combination of classic period/modern living in the heart of a well regarded and sought after village with excellent schools, a direct train to London, unspoilt countryside and attractive country pubs all close by.

Garden & Exterior
A drive way to the left of the house takes you to the rear of the house where there is a generous paved area which can be used as parking or as a patio. The lengthy, lawned garden, which measures 160 ft in length, stretches away, bordered by mature trees, shrubs and beds, prettily punctuated by low level box hedges. The barn/studio offers a fantastic option for an exterior office space or as a games room and comes with a WC. On either side there is useful storage space for DIY equipment, tools and bicycles and there is further loft storage above.
The property is situated opposite the village green in the charming village of West Horsley which has a traditional feel with two pubs in walking distance and a local convenience store. It is surrounded by unspoilt countryside with a network of footpaths and bridle ways which will take you up to the nearby Sheepleas area of the Surrey Hills - a designated area of outstanding natural beauty - and onwards into the North Downs. The larger village of East Horsley is under 1 mile away with its range of everyday shops and amenities together with the station which provides a regular commuter service into London Waterloo in approximately 45 minutes. The A3 is within easy reach and provides quick access to the M25 and on to both Heathrow and Gatwick airports. There are a number of good schools locally in both the private and state sectors. The county town of Guildford is approximately 8 miles away providing extensive shopping, leisure and entertainment facilities.
