Garden and Exterior

The gardens are a very attractive feature of the property and it is clear a lot of love and attention has gone into them over the years. The front of the property is approached through a wrought iron gate and a pathway leads to the front door with an Elizabethan-style knot garden in front of the bay window. To the side of the house is a detached double garage, which is tile hung and has a large loft room accessed from a workshop at the rear of the garage. The gravel driveway provides parking for a number of cars and there is a carport to the side of the garage. To the rear of the garage, a large paved terrace is a sun trap ideal for outdoor entertaining and to enjoy the garden. A raised rose border runs the length of the terrace, with a stone wall stepping down to the lawns. An arbour runs the length of the garden, draped in clematis and keeping the rhododendrons in check. There are a variety of mature trees including oaks, two ancient apple trees and a flowering cherry, plus a number of well stocked borders, including a variety of soft fruits. A brick paved area, suitable for a table and chairs, outside the kitchen is a perfect spot to enjoy a coffee and newspaper in the morning sunshine.

Location

Bridge Road is one of the most sought after roads in the village; being only a quarter of a mile from the High Street and lined with other substantial character properties. The village centre is a short walk and provides a wide range of shops, restaurants and cafes. There are two supermarkets, an MandS foodhall, a couple of independent department stores; as well as a modern health centre, library, art centre and leisure centre. Cranleigh is at the foot of the Surrey Hills and is surrounded by open countryside; ideal for walking, cycling and horse riding. There are a choice of golf courses and gyms, including the Cranleigh Golf and Country Club. The county town of Guildford is 9 miles to the north, and from here there is a fast train service into Waterloo; it also provides access to the A3 for central London and the M25. There are a much wider range of shops and recreational facilities.
