The Street, Compton



A delightful semi-detached character cottage enjoying wonderful views to the rear and located within the picturesque village of Compton.

Approached via its own private driveway with double gates opening onto a further area of driveway which leads to the detached garage, Primrose Cottage has a wealth of charm and character. The front door opens into a small hallway with a cloakroom and a door leading into the charming dining room. The sitting room and kitchen, both to the rear of the cottage, look over the large rear garden.

On the first floor there are 2 double bedrooms, 3rd bedroom/optional study and bathroom. The cottage has, we understand, all mains services and there is scope to enlarge the cottage subject to planning. 

Undoubtedly the large garden, mainly laid to lawn, and the distant views/outlook over fields are a wonderful feature of this charming cottage.

Compton is known as “The Artist’s Village” because of its historic connections to the fine arts through acclaimed Victorian artist G F Watts, whose legacy is the renowned Watts Gallery and the unique and fascinating Watts Cemetery Chapel. Yet Compton today is much more than a pretty hamlet: it is a lively and friendly community, whose activities include the Compton Little Theatre, the Compton Club (for socials and other activities from dance to yoga), a thriving Village Hall, a local bus service and the annual Compton Village Fete, not to mention the renowned Withies Inn. The idyllic church of St Nicholas pre‑dates Saxon times and was mentioned in the Domesday Book. At the eastern approach to the village stands the splendid Loseley House, built in the reign of Elizabeth I, surrounded by ancient Surrey parkland with stunning views towards the North Downs. There is an excellent choice of both state and private schools within the area.

Farncombe station is 2 miles away, for services to London Waterloo in less than an hour. By car, London, the south coast, Heathrow and Gatwick airports are all within an hour’s drive. Guildford has a great shopping centre and a wealth of history, with the old market town of Godalming on the River Wey, less than 3 miles distance.
