A delightful semi-detached two bedroom cottage
Believed to have been built some 350 years ago, this beautifully preserved, quintessential countryside cottage sits within the renowned Surrey Hills surrounded by open fields and woodland. As one season evolves into the next, this cottage is a consistent delight, with its open fireplace and exposed oak beams offering a sense of warmth and cosiness in the winter, whilst the double glass doors frame the sunshine splendidly during the summer months. The front door opens into a welcoming sitting room, which flows into a dining area and onto the south facing drawing room. Dual aspect double glass doors are a feature of the drawing room and allow for an abundance of natural light, creating an airy and spacious atmosphere. The view from the front door frames the deer park across the road beautifully, a park that is home to rare white deer. The country-style kitchen, with exposed oak beams, adjoins a spacious and versatile utility room/pantry. The character of the cottage continues upstairs with a large principal bedroom and a further second bedroom, both with latch doors, exposed oak beams to the ceilings and picturesque countryside views. A spacious family bathroom completes this floor.
The rear of the cottage has a paved terrace, accessible from the double doors of the drawing room, and a lawned garden which blends into the fields that lie beyond. There is also lawn at the front of the property, framing its character features magnificently. The garage is situated adjacent to the house and there is ample additonal parking. There is further living accommodation outside, with an outbuilding containing a study and separate WC - an idyllic and versatile space for home working or as a hub to refine and enjoy a hobby or pastime.
The cottage is nestled within the scenic hamlet of Loxhill, just a short drive from Hascombe, home to The White Horse, which has an award-winning restaurant while maintaining the feel of a traditional English public house. The surrounding villages have thriving cricket and tennis clubs, whilst there's also a local village shop and post office for everyday needs. Although rural in all aspects, this beautiful cottage is strategically placed between the sought-after town of Godalming and the delightful village of Cranleigh (5 miles and 8 miles, respectively), as well as being close to the historic town of Guildford (8 miles), with its extensive choice of shops, restaurants and cobbled streets. There are a variety of excellent local schools, both within the state and private sectors, and numerous footpaths for countryside walks.
From Guildford, take the A281 Horsham Road from Guildford. Continue along the road for about 2.6 miles, then turn right onto Foxburrow Hill Road. Proceed for about 1 mile, where after a small roundabout this will turn into Munstead Heath Road. After about 3.4 miles, turn left onto Hascombe Road (B2130) and continue ahead for about 3.4 miles. The road will bear to the left, and you will soon see the cottage on your right hand side.Read all
