Initially built in 1914, this exquisitely renovated home boasts a storied past as a former schoolhouse. It's brimming with character, promising old-school school charm from the outset with its stately red-brick facade. Positioned in the historic market town of Godalming, just a three-minute drive (fifteen-minute walk) from the town centre and a thirty-minute drive from the South Downs National Park, it offers an idyllic base for exploring Surrey's breathtaking natural beauty. A masterclass in colour theory, the interior exudes an artisan ambience with its vibrant aesthetic, art-clad walls and eclectic array of stylish decor and vintage touches. Crittall doors usher in floods of sunlight while offering perpetual glimpses of the leafy exterior, and we love the open-plan living space. With its free-flowing layout and contemporary comforts, including an equipped farmhouse-style kitchen, it's primed for relaxation. Here, floor-to-ceiling sliding doors reveal the patio. After a restful night's sleep in the sumptuous bedrooms, step outside and sip your morning coffee here, awakening from your slumber to birdsong and the symphonic rustling of leaves. This home's beautifully equipped half acre of grounds beckons you to unwind in the splendour of your surroundings. The lush garden is nestled in a cocoon of dense foliage and pruned-to-perfection hedgerows, promising privacy. We especially love the swimming pool. Bordered by plush sun-loungers and a summerhouse, it's a lovely space for relaxing come rain or shine. After a day of adventure or simply lounging poolside, fire up the rustic barbecue for a delicious alfresco feast before a night of board games beside the crackling fireplace.

About Surrey

Whether you’re looking to switch the bustle of city-living for the quintessential cosy English cottage in a picturesque, chocolate-box village – following in the footsteps of Cameron Diaz’s character in ‘The Holiday’ – or looking for a quiet country pad to take the kids for the weekend – Surrey is a world away from the liveliness of London, despite being less than half an hour from Central.
