Exceptional detached village home

Welcome to this exquisite 17th Century Grade II Listed cottage clad in galleted Bargate stone. It is reputedly one of the oldest houses in the village and was divided into two cottages some time ago but restored to a substantial single house in 2004. This fantastic home benefits from a contemporary feel, whilst retaining many original features and the character and charm of a period cottage.

Some of the outstanding features include: large reception hall with oak flooring; open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room with lovely views over the rear garden; Harvey Jones cream shaker style solid units and attractive grey granite worktops in the kitchen. A fabulous study with wood burning stove, elegant dining room and useful study complete the ground floor. Flexible first floor bedroom accommodation is accessed via two staircases providing a beautiful principle bedroom with adjacent dressing room and bathroom, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.


The property is approached through a wooden gate, up a path through the pretty front garden. The beautiful rear garden is a delightful feature and the central lawn area is bordered by a well-stocked flower bed on one side and an attractive pergola covered gravel walkway on the other. There are three patio/barbeque areas, one of which is at the end of the garden and overlooks the farmland beyond. This is a very stylish, contemporary space and is perfect for entertaining and has built in seating areas and a fire pit.

The beautifully decorated summer house is fitted with mains electricity.


The property is set in a highly convenient location in the heart of the village of Compton. This picturesque village has a parish church, village hall, two pubs and an art gallery. The historic and picturesque market town of Godalming, just over 3 miles away, offers an excellent selection of shops and supermarkets, together with a good choice of restaurants. Guildford, less than 4 miles away, provides more comprehensive shopping and recreational facilities such as The Surrey Sports Park, G Live and the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre.

Both the A31 and the A3 are easily accessible, giving access to Central London, the M25, the national motorway network, Heathrow and Gatwick Airports and the South Coast. Guildford main line station is 3.7 miles away which provides a fast service to London Waterloo in about 37 minutes.

There are excellent schools in the immediate area, including Charterhouse, Prior’s Field, St. Catherine’s, Cranleigh, Aldro and St. Hilary’s. The surrounding countryside is renowned for its scenic beauty and provides miles of walking and riding. There are a number of good golf courses nearby, including Puttenham, Milford and the West Surrey at Enton.


Head south on the A3 bypassing Guildford. After the A31 Junction, take the next junction signposted Puttenham and Compton. Turn left at the roundabout towards Compton. Ross Cottage will be found after a short distance on the left hand side, just after The Old Post Office.
