A home of stature and standing, Elmcroft is set in the heart of Busbridge, arguably Godalming's most highly desirable residential area, directly opposite the entrance to the recreation ground and tennis club.
Built circa 1898 this Victorian residence is most pleasing on the eye with its part Bargate stone, part tile-hung fascia under a tiled roof.
Our clients have poured great love and care on their home over the years and it is now time for new owners to create a new chapter here. Whilst there is certainly scope to put your own stamp on it, the rooms are incredibly well-proportioned and combine with a stunning rear garden and a number of outbuildings including a double-storey annexe.
The accommodation effortlessly flows from a welcoming reception hall into a dual aspect drawing room with fireplace. Beyond are two further interconnected reception rooms, versatile in their usage but currently forming sitting and dining areas. In addition, off the sitting area is a conservatory. The kitchen/breakfast room opens into a breakfast area and there is also a utility room. We think this area could be opened up and maybe extended, subject to necessary consents, to create a stunning kitchen/family area. Interestingly there is a also a very useable cellar with stairs leading down from the entrance hall.
Upstairs, the principal bedroom enjoys its own en-suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms and a generous single bedroom.
Outside, as previously mentioned there is a magnificent annex which enjoys a charming ground floor sitting room, and first floor bedroom There is also a large detached utility room, fitted with a range of cupboards and drawers, and a separate detached garage.
