A fantastic opportunity to acquire a character semi-detached cottage ideally situated overlooking Shalford Common and within a short walk of the village centre, local shops and station, with the added benefit of being easily accessible to Guildford town centre and mainline station either by bus, cycle route or by foot alongside the River Wey.
