First time on the market in almost 100 years, this historic six bedroom house is situated in the highly sought after village of Sutton Green which lies in between Woking and Guildford.
The Old Cottage has origins back to the 16th Century, originally being on the estate of the courtier, Sir Richard Weston, who was granted the manor of Sutton from Henry VIII in the early 1520s. Due to such historical interest the property is Grade II listed. In need of refurbishment, the property offers potential to facilitate a personalised project to provide a spacious yet characterful family home. The house is set in a quiet position off Whitmoor Lane with views over paddock land and benefits from a large secluded private garden. On the ground floor there is a kitchen, dining room, living room, main reception, utility room and cloakroom. Upstairs is accessed by either the primary staircase from the main hall or a secondary staircase serving the east wing of the house. Currently configured as six bedrooms with two bathrooms, bedroom six could alternatively be used as a study/dressing room or adapted to provide an ensuite bathroom. The rooms in the oldest part of the house offer many exposed structural oak beams, expected of such a period property and are of great character, whilst a later extension provides more modern rooms. There is a double garage to the side of the property and ample parking space on the graveled frontage. Wide side access from the front leads to the rear garden, bordered with trees and hedging, leading to an orchard at the end. The garden holds many established flower and herbaceous beds, fruit trees with some specimen examples, all creating a quintessential English garden. Stepping out from the house you can walk directly along a public footpath over field towards Whitmoor and Rickman Commons, being a 166 hectare Site of Special Scientific Interest and managed by the Surrey Wildlife Trust. Alternatively, you can walk through the village to Triggs Lock on the Wey Canal where you can follow the canal path for beautiful countryside walks. Sutton Green is surrounded by Green Belt and it has an active village community offering various events throughout the year along with a village green and a proactive gastro pub. The village hall is used for numerous activities, classes, children's parties, Christmas gatherings and social evenings with the popular annual Wine Tasting evening organised by the well run Sutton Green Village Association, which also oversees a summer fete. On the edge of the village is the beautifully landscaped Sutton Green Golf Club and several more within a few miles including the prestigious Worpleson Golf Club. The train service from the local station, Worplesdon offers a fast and frequent service to London Waterloo (34 mins) or Woking (24 mins) and AirLink coach to Heathrow. The nearby M25 offers convenient connections and easy access to both Heathrow and Gatwick whilst the A3 offers various routes south to the coast or directly up into London.
