A delightful detached period property in a peaceful rural location
Bookers Lee is a handsome detached period property, with almost 5,000 square feet of beautifully presented accommodation, and six bedrooms, set in a rural location just outside the village of Alfold. The property features contemporary styling throughout, complementing generously proportioned reception rooms, which welcome plenty of natural light. To the front of the ground floor there are two attractive reception rooms, both of which feature bay windows, fireplaces and wooden parquet flooring. There is also a useful study, while the heart of the home is the open-plan kitchen and family room. The kitchen features stylish contemporary units in cream, with granite worktops, plus an Aga, integrated appliances and a central island, while the family room provides plenty of space for entertaining guests or enjoying family meals. Adjoining the family room there is a further well-proportioned room, which could be renovated and developed to create a larger open-plan living space. On the first floor there are six generous double bedrooms, including the master, which benefits from fitted storage and an en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower and dual washbasins. There are two further bathrooms, both of which have separate shower units.
This property has 2.2 acres of land.
At the front of the property, a five-bar timber gate opens onto a gravel driveway, which provides plenty of parking space. There are walled gardens surrounding the property, with extensive lawns and a variety of shrubs, trees and hedgerows, while at the side of the house there is a single garage, providing further parking space or home storage.
The property lies on the outskirts of Alfold, a small and charming Surrey village. Amenities include a 12th Century church, three pubs and a village shop, a renovated village hall, host to various sports and social clubs, and a sports ground with two football pitches, cricket pitch and tennis courts. More comprehensive everyday facilities can be found in Cranleigh and Godalming, about 4 and 9 miles away respectively. Guildford, just over 10 miles to the north, has extensive cultural and recreational amenities including The Surrey Sports Park and Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, as well as a wide range of restaurants and bars. For the outdoor enthusiast, Alfold is set in an area of wooded countryside with many footpaths, tracks and bridleways through Forestry Commission land and along the Wey and Arun Canal. Winkworth Arboretum, with over 100 acres of National Trust woodland, is just over 6.5 miles away. There is also golf at Wildwood in Alfold and at Cranleigh. A variety of schools for all ages can be found in the area including Loxwood Primary School, Cranleigh School, St Catherines in Bramley, Charterhouse and Priors Field.
From Guildford take the A281 towards Horsham. Proceed through the villages of Shalford and Bramley. After about 6 miles from Bramley but before you reach Alfold Crossways there will be a turning on the left just after Alford Road and before Wildwood Lane. Bookers Lee can be found on the left.Read all
