Offers in excess of £400,000 - Beautiful two bedroom Victorian Cottage with 18'2x10'6 garden office/studio perfect for home working, with parking and packed with traditional features.
2 Gorse Cottages is a beautiful 2 bedroomed Victorian terraced cottage with parking, dating back to the 1900s, packed with traditional features and hidden extras that make this home a stand-out property which is far larger than meets the eye. It has been recently decorated and had various modern improvements over time (including replacement double glazed Sash windows) but great emphasis has been placed on retaining the atmosphere and integrity of the original cottage. Set in a semi-rural location between Haslemere, Grayshott and Hindhead backing onto open AONB fields.
The ground floor comprises a light and inviting sitting room with an open, feature fireplace. A doorway from the sitting room leads to a bright and spacious dining room which opens onto the kitchen. There is a convenient storage cupboard underneath the stairs in the dining room (with lighting all the way through). A large sash window, which floods in natural sunlight to the dining room, looks out onto the side pathway and patio and garden beyond. The kitchen has a good range of cupboard units and worktops with space for washing machine, fridge freezer and gas oven. A window from the kitchen sink also overlooks the pathway. The bathroom is also on the ground floor and comprises of bath with shower screen, hand basin and toilet with window overlooking the patio area.
On the first floor there are two large sunny double rooms. The bedroom to the rear has a large sash window with a lovely view of the garden and a range of deep fitted wardrobes and drawers for storage. The bedroom to the front (with sash window) overlooks trees and the gravelled parking area and includes a feature Victorian fireplace.
Pull down stairs from the landing lead up to a large bright attic room which is boarded, carpeted and lighting with a Velux window to the front and also had plenty of under eaves storage. This room has the potential for a range of uses.
The property has a traditional front garden with mature shrubs and is bathed in the sunshine. To the back of the property the garden is divided into three distinct areas, the first is a flagstone path from the back door leading to a sunny patio surrounded by colourful flower beds. The second area is via a pathway bordered by mature shrubs and trees which opens out onto a lawned area with an 18'2 x 10'6 Studio to one side and a further office/workshop to the other side.
The large wooden Studio has French doors and windows to the front and side, full height ceiling with wooden beams and spotlights. Cleverly concealed doors slide open to reveal a sink and storage area. This is a fantastic creative workspace but has the adaptability for many uses and is used by the current vendor as a Studio for painting/artwork.
The office/workshop is again a great size, boarded out with concealed storage, mains power and full lighting, currently used as an exhibition room and workshop.
The third part of the garden has a further large lawned area and widens out yet more with shrubs and trees (a garden shed is cleverly screened behind the trees). The very rear of the garden overlooks open 'AONB' fields which are frequented by sheep and cows and wildlife throughout the year. There is a hidden bench where you can while away the evenings watching the wildlife come and go.
Parking is to the front of the property.
The property is perfectly located in a semi-rural position surrounded by natural areas of woodland for walking and a short drive from the National Trust land the Devil’s Punch Bowl and Hindhead Common, both of which have stunning countryside views.
