A rare opportunity to purchase this beautifully presented two-bedroom, semi detached, character cottage set in the idyllic hamlet of Little London on Albury Heath. The cottage is surrounded by miles of beautiful countryside and boast views to the front and rear. The double-width plot affords plenty of scope to extend (subject to planning) whilst a gravel drive provides easy parking for 4/5 cars.
The cottage is approached through double gates that open onto a large, gravelled driveway and a path flanked by lawns and well stocked borders leads to a tiled porch over the front door.
The front door opens into the sitting room with a brick fireplace and Morso wood burning stove, beamed ceiling and sympathetic double-glazed windows that provide views of the front and side gardens. A door from the living room leads to the dining room/study which again features exposed beams and a double-glazed window to the front.
The kitchen is at the back of the house with a large, double-glazed window overlooking the garden and was refitted a year ago with a comprehensive range of wood effect worksurfaces with cream coloured base and eye level units. Off the kitchen through a lobby is the bathroom which features a modern white suite with a bath and shower above.
Stairs from the kitchen lead to the first-floor where there are two bedrooms with exposed beams and views out over fields to the front through double glazed windows. The cottage has been well cared for by the current long-term owner and many improvements have been carried out.
There are good size gardens on all three sides of the cottage and views over the lane to fields at the front. There are miles of walking and riding in the Surrey Hills accessible from the doorstep with the William IV pub just down the lane. The size of the garden provides plenty of scope to extend the cottage or build barn style garaging, subject to planning permission.
The location is perfect, nestled within the Surrey Hills, approximately seven miles from Guildford with its mainline station for London Waterloo in c37 minutes and extensive range of cultural, shopping and excellent schooling facilities. The A3 at Guildford provides easy access to the M25. Further stations can be found at Gomshall and Chilworth with golf clubs close by at Effingham, Merrow and Bramley.
