Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built in 1871, for the headmistress of the former village school, this is a delightful character cottage, with original brick and part-tile hung elevations, offering a plethora of period features. It will appeal to buyers who appreciate older style properties and the wonderful characteristics which accompany them.

Whilst the cottage has been sympathetically modernised throughout, nothing detracts from the sense of history derived from the original wood beams and the exposed brick working fireplace in the main reception room.

The current owners currently use the stable door at the rear for more practical access as this leads into a very versatile, additional reception room currently arranged as a second sitting room. The fully fitted kitchen with built in gas hob, electric oven and fridge freezer, has the benefit of an open plan dining area which is suitable for entertaining and which is conveniently placed centrally between the two reception rooms. The main sitting room on the front, is a very pleasant room with the feature fireplace as an alluring focal point. One's eye is also drawn to the original wood ceiling beams belying the age and character, whilst the double aspect windows allow for a good deal of light. Upstairs continues in the same theme with two bedrooms leading off the landing, in additional to the family bathroom. The main bedroom cleverly offers a built in sink and separate shower unit, in additional to a fitted wardrobe and low level cabinet storage and the second bedroom is a generous sized single

This is rare opportunity to purchase a captivating Victorian cottage in an idyllic village setting.




Garden & Exterior
Accessed through double gates, the garden wraps around the house in an L-shape with an area of loose shingle providing an option for off street parking. The lawned front garden is extremely pretty with roses climbing the front elevation and jasmine to the side. Two sheds provide useful storage and at the rear there is an area against the fenced rear boundary, currently with chairs and table which works well for outside entertaining.
Location
The property is situated in the charming village of West Horsley which has a traditional feel with two pubs and a local shop being very close at hand. It is surrounded by unspoilt countryside with a network of footpaths and bridleways 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 approximately 2 miles 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, including Cranmore school, which is a short walk away. The county town of Guildford is approximately 8 miles away providing extensive shopping, leisure and entertainment facilities.
