Martlet Court was completed in 2008 and was built on the former site of Station Garage, in a highly convenient position in the centre of the village. The buildings and grounds are well presented, with wrought-iron fencing and electric gates. The parking area is graveled with designated spaces and planted borders. There is an entry phone system on the entrance to the building and the communal hall and stairs are nicely decorated and well lit.
The front door opens into a spacious entrance hallway, with a large coat cupboard and the phone entry intercom. The reception room is an interesting shape due to its corner position and the turret. It is a light and spacious room with many windows and enjoys a southerly aspect. At the other end of the room, there is space for a table and chairs. The kitchen has an engineered wood floor and is fitted with a range of cream units and wood effect laminate tops. There is an integral electric oven, a gas hob and stainless steel extractor hood. There is also space for a washer/dryer and a freestanding fridge freezer. The gas fired boiler is situated in one of the corner cupboards.
Bedroom one is a double with a built in wardrobe and benefits from an en-suite with a large shower cubicle and glazed sliding door, basin, wall mirror, wc and heated towel rail. Bedroom two is another double and also has a built in wardrobe with sliding doors. The main bathroom is situated across the hallway and is fitted with a modern white suite of bath with shower attachment, basin, large mirror and shelf, wc and heated towel rail.
The village of Rudgwick is located between Guildford and Horsham; situated on the old railway line which now forms the Downs Link – a 37 mile foot path and cycle way that runs from Guildford to Shoreham.
