Dorking Road, Chilworth
Offers in excess of £400,000 - Freehold


The property is well screened from the road by mature bushes, but there is an open outlook to the front over fields to St. Martha’s church on the hill. A pair of metal gates open to a concrete driveway with room to park several cars. The front garden is mainly lawns with some planting, though a little overgrown. A pathway leads to the front door and to the side of the property is a wooden lean-to with a door to a covered area with an inspection pit. At the rear of the property is a block built garage with a pair of wooden doors. The rear garden has been cleared and a couple of ramshackle corrugated iron outbuildings remain. The rear boundary is fenced and beyond which is the railway line.

The front door opens into a central hallway with the unusual feature of a high ceiling with a large roof window to the front elevation. The various rooms open off the central hallway, including the bathroom which is fitted with a very dated and frankly unusable suite of bath, basin and wc. The kitchen has a quarry tiled floor and a walk-in pantry. There is a window to the front, a sink and a door to the outside. Adjoining the kitchen is a dining room with a bay window to the rear elevation and a tiled hearth housing the Worcester gas-fired boiler and built in cupboards to one side. Next door is a bedroom that overlooks the rear garden and there is another bedroom next to the bathroom on the front of the building. The sitting room has a bay window to the rear aspect and fireplace in one corner. A door leads into the adjoining study/bedroom three which has a window to the front. Off this room is a timber and glass structure that would once have been a conservatory, or greenhouse.

The Agent has not tested any apparatus, equipment, fixtures and fittings or services and so cannot verify that they are in working order or fit for the purpose. A Buyer is advised to obtain verification from their Solicitor or Surveyor. There is evidence of structural movement in one corner of the house, which will need to be given consideration by any potential buyer before submitting an offer.


Chilworth is a village in the borough of Guildford, situated on both sides of the Tillingbourne River, between Tangley Hill and St Martha’s Hill, which has St Martha’s Church that is visible from the property. Footpaths lead through fields and woodlands to the North Downs Way and to the south across Blackheath Common to join up with The Hurtwood, which is an area of the Surrey Hills that comprises over 3,000 acres of woodland and heathland that is open to the public and ideal for walking, biking and horse riding.

Chilworth has three churches, two pre-secondary education schools, and The Percy Arms pub and restaurant. The village has a recreation ground with a park that has a sports pavilion used for both football and cricket. Chilworth railway station is on the North Downs Line and is served every two hours by trains to Redhill and Reading. Bus route number 32 connects Chilworth to Guildford, and Redhill via Dorking and is a basic hourly service, with a reduced service on Sundays.

The market town of Guildford is six miles away and provides a mainline train station with a fast service to Waterloo. The A3 also provides quick access by car to the M25 and central London. Guildford provides a diverse range of social and recreational facilities: including theatre, cinema and The Spectrum for ice skating, bowling and most sports. The cobbled High Street and numerous Arcades offer a selection of shops, to rival the best of London’s famous streets.
