A charming late Georgian house sitting in 1.7 acres on the edge of the town.
THE PROPERTY If you are looking for a lovely Georgian house, Marley Cottage provides a very rare chance to acquire one. The house has been a much loved family home for the last 29 years. Our client's move has been triggered by the family all having left home. The house dates from the late Georgian period with Victorian additions and a further extension built by our client in 1998. The light and airy house offers flexible and well-proportioned accommodation with enough individual spaces to make it ideal for family living. In all a great house and one that has to be viewed to be truly appreciated.
LOCATION The house sits just south of the highly regarded town of Haslemere which offers a comprehensive range of shopping and sporting facilities and a mainline station with train services to London Waterloo in around 55 minutes. You can walk to the station and town centre from the house. Close to the town there are a number of National Trust owned areas of common and woodland, including Blackdown and Marley Common, and the whole area is covered in footpaths and bridleways providing great scope for riding, walking and cycling. There is a good range of schools in the area, both primary and secondary. The larger centres of Guildford and Chichester are within reasonable driving distance as is London and the South Coast via the A3.
OUTSIDE A gravel drive leads up to a large parking area and both the garage building and the stone barn are accessed off this. The garage has two open bays and one closed with a useful studio above. The house sits in lovely gardens. On the western side there is a brick terrace and the gardens are predominantly made up of open areas of lawn with extensive herbaceous and shrub borders. To the rear there is an orchard and hard tennis court. Adjacent to the studio there is a secluded area with the swimming pool and attractive views over fields and woodland to the rear can be enjoyed from most of the garden. The grounds total about 1.7 acres in all.
