A charming period home on the rural edge of Guildford and sitting in attractive gardens overlooking Normandy Common at the end of a quiet country lane. The property has origins in the 18th Century and latterly extended, it is not Listed so provides a little more opportunity to personalise if required. Owned by our clients for over 45 years, this has been a very happy home for them. There are three generous reception rooms, each with their own character with exposed beams, fireplace and french doors opening onto the spectacular gardens variously evident across the three. Currently configured as a three bedroom home, it was previously four but a wall was removed to provide a larger room, although both access doors remain so can easily be reinstated. The property feels very much connected with the gardens and surrounding environment with plenty of windows and doors providing interesting and varied views.
The property is situated surrounded by beautiful countryside in the hamlet of Hunts Hill. Set at the end of a peaceful country lane leading out onto Normandy Common, this is a remarkable landscape with stunning rural views and seasonal sight of a carefullly restored Normandy Pond. Hunts Hill falls within Normandy Parish Council, a vibrant and active community that offers nearby schooling, superb sports clubs (cricket, archery, tennis, football and bowls), a popular farm shop only a few doors away, a well attended village fete and a local doctors surgery. This area of Green Belt is both a Conservation Area and an Area of Great Landscape Value. The historic town of Guildford with its cobbled High Street and station is about six miles away and provides an extensive range of shops, cultural and recreational facilities, including Surrey Sports Park, The Spectrum Leisure Centre, G Live and The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre. Woking station is about 7.5 miles away with services to Waterloo from 30 minutes. The surrounding countryside and scenic copses make this an ideal location for outdoor activities including walking, cycling and riding, with Parwood Equestrian Centre close by. Several golf courses are within the vicinity and include West Hill, Worplesdon and Woking.
Gardens are a real feature here, extending to the south east and open on the southerly aspect onto the Common allowing sun all day long. Beautifully manicured with lawn spaces interspersed with mature shrubs and floral borders, the gardens have been designed to provide various defined areas or 'rooms', enabling numerous seating areas and terraces from which to enjoy different views of the gardens and the path of the day's sun. At the end of the garden is a large, detached, timber garage.
