A real gem of a home right in the heart of Chertsey. A truly gorgeous 18th-century cottage full of original character features in the centre of the Chertsey Conversation Area.
With its period features, including original fireplaces, stripped floors, an Aga cooker and a shaker style kitchen, it feels like you are living in a country village cottage while having all the advantages of being near the centre of the historic town of Chertsey. It is only a short walk to Guildford street, with its period pubs, shops, banks and eateries, and the local Sainsbury's supermarket. Other amenities such as trains, local schools, and three beautiful parks, are also within easy walking reach.
This grade II listed cottage is surprisingly spacious, with two large double bedrooms and is decorated to a high standard throughout. Internal viewing is highly recommended. Though being a period property it also has the advantage of open plan living. The front has recently been painted in a period light yellow and a stylish grey for the door and window woodwork.
Imagine yourself sitting on a nice sunny day, on the decking enjoying your favourite tipple and company, in the quiet and secluded south westerly garden, that traps the sun for most of the day. The garden is very private as it is enclosed with panel fencing to both sides, with established borders and hedges, and a rather attractive period wall from the nearby vicarage property to rear. It features a decorative rockery in the back corner and is mainly laid to lawn.
Entering via the front door you find yourself in the cosy living room with its exposed floorboards, period fireplace with a niche on one side and builtin shelving and cupboards on the other. The living room has open access to the dining room with its large exposed brickwork fireplace, shelving and a serving hatch into the main gallery kitchen. The kitchen is effectively in two rooms, the first is a modern fitted -kitchen with a painted country style shaker kitchen, with builtin fridge/freeze and a slot for a gas cooker, and benefits from built-in shelving and views from the door and window into the garden. Directly on your left is another kitchen/utility room, containing a bright red two oven Aga range, additional storage, a butler's sink, a built-in dishwasher, and is plumbed for a washing machine.
Leaving the kitchen/utility room to the rear you enter into the large family bathroom. Decorated in white, with the stylish lustrous white vintage-looking underground tiles, it benefits from a large bathtub and washbasin, with a WC directly behind it via a separate door. The tub is large and spacious and it would not be hard to imagine yourself luxuriating in a nice hot bath after a hard day or returning from the gym.
When it is time to retire, you climb the staircase to the first floor where you are presented with two very spacious double bedrooms, the first on your right has a period fireplace and painted exposed floorboards. Turning the other way leads you to the bedroom at the back of the cottage which has room for a double bed and benefits from exposed floors and a stunning view over the garden. There is a cupboard over the stairs for storage and room for a desk for those days you need to work from home.
The cottage is central to the attractive Chertsey Conservation Area and only minutes by foot to Guildford Street, the main street of Chertsey, full of period shops, places to eat and historic pubs. It is a similar distance to the local Sainsbury's supermarket and its surrounding precinct with coffee shops and other local stores. The train station is at the bottom of Guildford street around about ten minutes walk or half a mile. There are three local parks with easy reach, ideal for exercising and relaxation and with quiet riverside walks along the Bourne and the Abbey rivers nearby. The area is well served by local schools including a new senior school that has just opened within easy reach. There are also several highly regarded independent schools in the town and surrounding areas. If you are a sports fan, then Chertsey Town FC and Cherstey Cricket Club are about half a mile away also.
