Location & Amenities
The bungalow is situated in the charming location of Cranleigh, claimed by locals to be “the largest village in England”, with period buildings throughout, notably St Nicolas Church, dating back to the 14th century.
The bungalow is perfectly placed, within easy access of the village centre, yet in a quiet and peaceful setting. Cranleigh has an excellent range of high street and individual shops including Sainsbury’s, Co-Op and M&S Simply Food supermarkets, restaurants, coffee shops and country pubs, plus a vibrant weekly market. Other amenities within an easy walk include an excellent Sports & Leisure Centre with an indoor pool and gym, the library, Health Centre and Cranleigh Arts Centre.
More extensive amenities can be found in the nearby regional centre of Guildford, with its cobbled High Street and historic buildings. Guildford is readily accessible and offers an eclectic range of shops, an abundance of restaurants and entertainment including The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Electric Theatre, and G Live centre.
There are a variety of recreational facilities locally, which include the Cranleigh Golf and Country Club, Bramley or Guildford Golf Clubs and an extensive garden centre. The renowned Cranleigh Cricket Academy and The Cranleigh School Equestrian Centre are nearby, with the Surrey Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) on the doorstep, perfect for walking, cycling, and riding.
There are a number of excellent schools in the area, both in the state and private sector. These include the renowned Cranleigh School, Pennthorpe, St Cuthbert Mayne Primary, St Hilary’s, St Catherine’s, Charterhouse, Royal Grammar School, Guildford High and Tormead.
The property is approached by a paved driveway and the front mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature bushes and shrubs to the side. There is parking for two cars in front of the garage. A paved patio area leads to the covered front door.
The front door opens into a spacious hallway with a coats cupboard and an airing cupboard. The sitting room has a central fireplace with a decorative stone base and large double glazed windows to the front and rear aspect, creating a light, spacious and versatile living space. The conservatory, dining room and the kitchen can all be conveniently accessed via the sitting room or from the hallway. The kitchen has ample storage and is fitted with a range of units and a stainless steel sink beneath a window that overlooks the garden. A door leads to the enclosed garden which can also be accessed via the conservatory and the workshop on the rear of the attached garage. A side-passage also leads from the kitchen door to the gate accessing the front garden.
A central hallway links the living room and dining-room with main the bathroom, utility, and the three bedrooms. The master bedroom with a southerly aspect has built in wardrobes and also benefits from an en-suite with a bath, washbasin, and WC. Bedroom two is good sized with storage and there is a third smaller bedroom/office, both with large glazed windows on either side. They are served by a family bathroom with a shower cubicle, washbasin, and WC. Next door there is a utility room with plumbed-in washing machine and dryer.
The bungalow benefits from double-glazing throughout all windows and the conservatory, providing cost-effective heat and sound insulation, and the heating runs from a gas-fired boiler in the kitchen.
