Appletree Cottage is a remarkable period property presented in immaculate order, located in the heart of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Set in a semi-rural setting close to Albury and Shere, the property has been significantly improved by the current owners in recent years.
The hand made front door opens into a welcoming living room with noticeable quality carpeting and a fireplace with a wood burning stove. A dining room with engineered wood flooring sits the middle of the house and opens onto the kitchen, staircase, and a door to the downstairs W.C. The modern kitchen has been fitted with new Velux windows providing plenty of natural light, under floor heating, solid oak work surfaces and a range of appliances, including a Neff oven and microwave. A cosy family room with double doors to the rear garden completes the ground floor accommodation.
Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms, both boasting feature fireplaces and a beautifully appointed bathroom fitted with under floor heating, a roll top bath and corner shower.
Careful thought has been given to the design and materials used during the refurbishment, with the property now benefiting from double glazing throughout the entire house, fully insulated, full re-wire and underfloor heating.
The pretty south-west facing rear garden has been beautifully landscaped to provide a sunken walled patio area with a custom-built steel pergola, an ideal space for entertaining. Most of the garden is lawn and features four mature apple trees and delightful herbaceous borders with a small section dedicated to a vegetable garden. A custom-made Shepherd’s Hut built to the highest of standards is positioned at the rear of the garden and is undoubtedly a feature of the property. The building could be used as a home office or guest lodge and has power, lighting, under floor heating and is fully insulated. Additionally, Appletree Cottage benefits from a large driveway to the side of the house which leads to the garage. Further private parking is located on a driveway opposite the front of the property.
