Description

Swallow Cottage has origins to 1550 with later additions and has been a fabulous family home for many years for our clients. This beautiful setting in the Bramley conservation area is a rural hidden gem in the Surrey countryside. The property is full of character in every room which includes original beams, leaded windows and two fabulous Inglenook fireplaces. Unlike many period cottages of this era the ceiling height to the first floor does not encroach on potential owners of a certain height. The property has a nice feeling of space and light through the pretty windows many of which overlook the surrounding area and the beautiful garden, which backs onto fields behind. Currently there are four bedrooms on the first floor and a family bathroom. On the ground floor there is a farm house style kitchen breakfast area which overlooks the rear garden. The two main separate reception areas both feature fireplaces. In addition, there is also an inner hall with bookcasing and an entrance porch, which is rarely used as the kitchen door remains the favoured entrance to the property. This very cosy home is full of atmosphere and is now looking for another long term occupation from its new owners.

Garden and Exterior

The rear garden enjoys a beautiful open view to the rear over hills and fields. The garden is enclosed on all sides by a mixture of hedging and fencing and is split into two main sections. There is a large area of gently sloping lawn with fruit trees and a pathway that leads through the middle of the garden to a productive allotment with large beds, a fruit cage, compost area, log store and a well head. To the rear of the garden, there is a fabulous lone mature oak and a stable. The more formal area of garden features a full width terrace and a pathway, which leads round to both sides of the property. The terrace continues round to the front of the house where the kitchen door and porch provide the more informal entrance. There is outside lighting, a gardener ’s tap and a driveway to the side, which slopes down to the lane providing off road parking in front of the garage for several vehicles. The garage was constructed in the1990 ’s and is built to a barn style with an office above. The garage is double width and length with an electric operated door and a personal door giving access to the rear garden.

Location

Thorncombe Street consists of 11 cottages of historic interest four of which are listed, spaced along the lane within an attractive setting of a valley where a stream quietly passes through woodland. The area remains very much unchanged over many years and it is the character and the historic buildings which merits its designation as a conservation area. The property is approx 2 miles from Bramley Village, which offers a petrol station, a shop, 2 public houses and several small takeaway restaurants. Godalming is approx 2.5 miles away offering a train station with trains to London Waterloo taking approx. 50 mins, supermarkets as well as a choice of shops and public houses.
