About this property

  • Sylvia's Cottage is a delightful period home situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is in a popular and convenient position on Wanborough Common facing towards Puttenham Golf Club. It has the benefit of being conveniently placed to easily access both Guildford and Godalming, whilst surrounded by natural woodland. There are woodland walks literally outside the gate.

    The house was once part of the Sandy Knowe House Estate and has its own large, front and back gardens which wrap around the property. It has 18th century origins, later additions in the 1930's and a more recent extension in 2000. This provides comfortable, adaptable and spacious living accommodation, with scope to extend (subject to the necessary planning consent).

    The entrance hall leads to good size reception room with a fireplace that faces the front garden. The dining room is a generous size which offers flexibility for family living. The kitchen faces the rear, with a utility room and separate downstairs shower room/WC to the back. Another WC/shower room completes the downstairs accommodation.

    Three bedrooms can be found at first floor level, the principal bedroom facing the front of the house. The two further bedrooms are serviced by the family bathroom.

    The property has the benefit of being conveniently located whilst surrounded by natural woodland. The front and rear gardens are a good size, with a patio and flower beds.
