Lawnsmead, Wonersh GU5

Terraced Bungalow


Having been recognised and awarded as a building of local merit The Reading Room is a unique terraced cottage which boasts a wealth of charm, and is situated in the heart of the village.

The property is characterised by a central brick-built gable on which  the build date 1872 (the year in which the Education Act made education compulsory in England) and a stone plaque has been placed, with the words “Reading Room” inscribed. What a wonderful daily reminder of the historic role this property has played in Wonersh Village. 

Upon entering the house, you are greeted by a light and bright sitting room offering a delightful double aspect vantage over the front garden and common land beyond. The principal bedroom is accessed via the hallway and in turn leads you to the bathroom. The kitchen is conveniently located allowing access to the rear of the property.

Set well back from the road, a well-tended, pretty cottage garden meets you upon approaching the front of the cottage. To the rear is a sunny brick paved terrace and a garage in block provides plentiful storage and a parking space.

Located in the centre of one of Surrey’s most quintessential villages, the location of this property is without doubt one of the main features.
