Description

Pinks Hill Cottage dates from 1850 and was purchased by our client some 37 years ago after it had been completely modernised and extended by a local builder. In more recent years, the property has again been extended to the rear to now provide a very well balanced family home in what is a most glorious setting. The features of the property include, two large separate reception rooms, which feature an open fireplace and a log-burning stove. The main sitting area has steps leading down to a further sitting room to the rear of the house with French doors overlooking and opening out onto the lovely gardens. The attractive front porch, which has been added sympathetically, is in keeping with the style of the property, insulating the main house and is a useful area for storing coats and shoes. The kitchen is well equipped and fitted, again with a lovely view over the garden and has plenty of space for a small kitchen table. The extension, which was added in 2009, creates a useful boot room area and a downstairs shower room with a WC and washbasin as well. There is also a cellar, which although not easily accessed at present, takes up most of the space underneath the dining area with limited head height but ideal for storage and possibly further conversion, subject to regulations.

An open tread staircase rises from the middle of the house to the first floor where there are three bedrooms, all of which are doubles. The master bedroom is a lovely room with views, a double aspect and a fitted cupboard over the stairs. The bathroom is mainly tiled with a washbasin, bidet, a panel-enclosed bath and separate WC. Other noteworthy features include original four panelled pine doors throughout much of the property, an integrated induction hob and oven. There are double glazed windows throughout the property and a new double glazed door to the rear.

Services – We understand the property has private drainage, which is tanked and currently emptied bi-annually. The heating system is powered by oil-fired central heating that is tanked and found in the rear garden and the property is connected to mains water. Access to the property is over common land owned by Guildford Borough Council and Pinks Hill Cottage has a right of way.

Garden and Exterior

To the front of the property there is an in and out driveway on a shingle stone drive area with a turning space. There is a garage attached to the side of the property, with an up and over door and a personal door to the rear. There is side access to both sides of the property and main access is found to the right hand side where a pathway leads round to the rear garden and main side door, which is double-glazed. The rear garden is a lovely feature being mainly lawned and private with an abundance of specimen trees, shrubs, well-planted borders and a full width patio terrace. The garden backs onto woodland and is east facing. Other features outside include a log store, a timber shed, a gardener ’s tap and outside security lighting.

Location

Pinks Hill is a lane with just seven dwellings surrounded by beautiful countryside ideal for riding, walking or cycling. The property is located in the popular village of Wood Street, approx. three miles west of Guildford and part of the civil parish of Worplesdon. Its amenities include two local pubs, The Royal Oak and The White Hart, Wood Street Infant School and Christopher Robins Nursery and a post office. The village green features the only surviving maypole in Surrey and hosts late spring and summer fairs. Approx. 3 miles away is Guildford town centre, offering a comprehensive range of shopping, social, recreational and educational facilities. Guildford has excellent transport links, with the A3 linking to the M25 just 6 miles away accessing central London and International airports; for those who require a commute into London there are railway stations at both Guildford and Worplesdon, both of which run a service into London Waterloo in under 40 minutes. There are a number of first class schools in the area, both state and private.
