About this property

  • Set in a mature attractive plot in a third of an acre and approached via a drive set back from the village green, an exciting opportunity to acquire this beautiful two bedroom thatched cottage that has planning granted to be replaced with an impressive four bedroom detached dwelling providing over 2,000 sq ft of well-balanced accommodation (ref; 20/P/00763). This is a unique opportunity to live in a stunning thatched cottage or potentially create your dream home in arguably one of Surrey's most sought after locations.

    Dating back to around 1920, Thatch Cottage has been beautifully maintained by the current owners. The entrance leads into the light, well presented double aspect living room with an ornamental fireplace, this flows into the dining area and then onto the kitchen/breakfast room. The 23' kitchen has views over the rear garden and leads to the utility room with access to the garden. The larger of the two bedrooms is on the ground floor with a bathroom en-suite. On the first floor there is another bedroom with a large eaves storage room and en-suite shower room. The bedroom is naturally light and enjoys south west facing views over the front garden and surrounding countryside from the large half-moon shaped window.

    There is a sizeable and versatile outbuilding, currently being used as a home office, as well as a double garage and ample parking. The gardens surround the property have been beautifully maintained and are mainly laid to lawn with trees, hedges and an array of flower and shrub beds. There is also the benefit of a decking area, to the front of the house, ideal for enjoying the views towards the village green.
