2 Bedroom Cottage

Guide Price £399,950

NO ONWARD CHAIN. A beautifully refurbished terraced cottage, close to Bramley village centre and school. Lórien Cottage benefits from a long garden backing directly onto the Downs Link footpath/cycle route linking Guildford and the South Coast. There is a fantastic log cabin/home office with verandah and terrace. The property is offered to market with no onward chain.

Lórien Cottage is situated to the south of Bramley village centre and therefore only 4 miles from Guildford. There is an off-street parking space for one car at the front of the property. The front door leads to a beautifully presented sitting room which features high ceilings, and a dual fuel burning stove embossed with country-side scenes. The sitting room also has fitted cupboards and mock oak wood flooring which also features in the adjacent dining room. The dining room offers lovely views of the garden and features a working fireplace with a solid oak mantle. Both the reception rooms and bedrooms feature high ceilings and the entire house is tastefully decorated in neutral Farrow & Ball and Laura Ashley paint colours.

There is a well fitted cottage-style kitchen with plenty of cupboard and work-top space, and a large butler sink. The kitchen leads to a light and bright fully tiled bathroom with an elegant white Victorian-style suite.

Upstairs, there are two good sized double bedrooms. A particularly lovely feature is the stunning, restored original red cedar wood floor in the front bedroom which also includes two large fitted wardrobes. The back bedroom has a charming view over the garden and both bedrooms feature wonderful original Victorian fireplaces that are fitted with ambient lighting.

The long garden is a particularly good feature of the cottage and benefits from a private and extensive tiered paved area, which opens out to a long lawn with a pretty cottage-garden border which has a range of flowers, herbs and vegetables growing. At the end of the garden there is a superb log cabin/home office with a good sized verandah and decked terrace. The cabin has the advantage of power, data connection and floor insulation and offers beautiful views of the garden and forested hill which lies beyond the front of the property to the left. At the rear is a private gate onto the Downs Link which allows for quick and easy access into the village of Bramley and beyond which is an excellent short-cut for a local commute by bike or on foot. To turn right out of the gate, the Downs Link path offers some of the most quintessentially beautiful rural treks Surrey has to offer, and leads you all the way down to the south coast.

Other benefits of Lórien Cottage include gas central heating, double glazing throughout and boarded loft space which has ample potential for conversion subject to planning permission.

Bramley enjoys a vibrant local community spirit along with its thriving high street where a local butcher, grocer, supermarket and post office can be found. There are two very popular pubs as well as a library and historical church. The village has regular bus links into Guildford, Godalming and Cranleigh. There is an excellent selection of schools in the area in both the state and private sectors, including St.Catherine’s school for girls.

The historic town of Guildford, with its famous cobbled High Street and castle, is approximately 3 miles, providing an extensive range of leisure and recreational facilities with a wide collection of shops and restaurants, the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, cinema complex, G Live, Surrey Sports Park, Spectrum Leisure Centre and Lido. There are 2 railway stations in Guildford and from the main station there is a regular and fast service to London Waterloo taking approximately 37 minutes.
