This Charming property dating back to 16th Century has immense character, a terrific garden and is in the heart of the village.

This wonderful family home lies within striking distance of the Village Green, yet enjoys seclusion behind mature hedges on Coxcombe Lane, away from busy roads. Originally three cottages and dating back to the 16th Century the property has evolved over time and is now a characterful and charming five-bedroom house extending to 3007 sq.ft. With whitewashed brick and rendered timber frame elevations, stunning fish scale tile hanging and two impressive gables at the front, the property has a presence and scale for a property of its age.
The accommodation provides 5 double bedrooms and three bathrooms on the first floor- the principal bedroom being ensuite. The heart of the home is a spacious country kitchen which is open plan to the dining area, features an AGA, butlers sink, terracotta floors, an abundance of exposed timbers and traditionally, a separate larder and a very well-proportioned and appointed boot room.
Leading off the dining area and through a braced,
lever and latched Oak door is a very comfortable main
living room with large inglenook fireplace, which is now home to a log burning stove. This room measures some 26ft and again features lovely, exposed beams and timbers, while retaining good ceiling height. Completing the accommodation is a study/home office, a series of scullery rooms and 2 guest W.C’s.

Outside
Approached via a gravel driveway at the front which is flanked by box hedging on one side and a garden out-building on the other whereby parking for several cars is possible. Another access is also possible to the rear of the property via School Lane for further parking and the potential for more garaging. The front and rear gardens are a delightful feature of Coxcombe, they’re mature, private, and extensive with the total plot measuring 0.53 acres. A herringbone brick terrace with a garden well, extends along the back of the house providing an idyllic spot for entertaining in the warmer months. Family and guests can enjoy views through clipped hedges down the rear lawn, with tended borders both sides with cottage garden planting and specimen trees and shrubs. An old garage (which has seen better days) is located out of sight on the rear boundary and offers scope for replacement, garden office/ annexe subject to the usual planning and listed building consents.

Situation
Situated in the heart of Chiddingfold, considered to be one of Surrey's most highly favoured villages, and benefitting from an excellent range of local shops including general stores, butchers and a post office. In addition there is cricket green, cafe, doctor's surgery, St Mary's Primary and Nursery schools, The Crown Inn which dates back to 13th Century, and St Mary's Church. It is quintessential in every way, with duck pond, and delightful period properties surrounding the green and there is a genuine sense of community. In the area the choice of schools is exceptional with Aldro, Charterhouse, Cranleigh School, Highfield, St Catherines, St Hilary's, and Priorsfield to name a few. The surrounding area boasts many miles of footpaths and bridleways, ideal for walking, cycling and riding through some of the county's most beautiful and protected countryside.
