Semi-Detached Council tax band: E Tenure: Freehold
This characterful extended cottage just outside Shere village has been recently refurbished throughout to give it a unique combination of original features and modern design.
On the ground floor you will find a semi open plan layout of rooms. The large country style kitchen leads into the back extension. The living/sitting room is full of character with both a working open fireplace and an original window feature. A great benefit of this house is the downstairs extension and toilet, currently made up as a guest bedroom but which could suit many uses.
First floor gives you access to two further bedrooms and a brand new redesigned bathroom. The first bedroom, which is the largest, is currently being used as a home office. The second bedroom is used as the master bedroom.
Outside, there is a small easily maintainable front garden. A side path along the house accessible through a little wooden gate, leads to the back garden. It had a tiled patio area great for outdoor dining and BBQs, as well as a large lawn and newly added summer house perfect for storing bikes, golf clubs etc. With on street parking for 2 cars.
Just a drive down the road to beautiful Shere village, the house is on a quiet country lane with a great sense of community, on street parking and amazing countryside views. Shere, 2mn away in the car and a lovely 10mn walk through Albury Heath (great for walking the dog!), is a picturesque village often used in movie sets. It's the perfect spot for a weekend stroll along the Tilling Bourne stream, a coffee and cake at the popular Dabbling Duck cafe, an ice cream at Shere Delights or a Sunday roast at one of the three lovely country pubs. Shere also has a convenient co-op and post office. The closest station is a 5mn drive away into Gomshall, where you can hop on a quick train to Guildford. This is also where you will find the closest petrol station.
