Situated on a quiet road within the village of Dunsfold, Rams Cottage has been lovingly refurbished by the current owners and is available to purchase with over 18 acres of additional woodland.
Dunsfold is a village in Waverley Borough, Surrey 8.7 miles (14 kilometres) south of Guildford. On the edge of the Surrey Hills, the village lies in the Weald and, at its northern point, reaches the Greensand Ridge Escarpment. The area is excellent for walking and cycling, offering stunning wooded countryside with views across open farmland and includes the Wey and Arun Canal.
Rams Cottage is an old timber-framed cottage, with a sympathetic modern extension. The property consists of a kitchen with a dining area and two reception rooms on the ground floor. Upstairs, there are 2 bathrooms with three bedrooms, each with their own staircase. The living room has an open fire in an inglenook fireplace, which has been carefully restored. It is surrounded by beautiful gardens comprising three separate areas of lawn with a variety of mature trees and plants as well as landscaped patios leading to outbuildings containing garaging and powered office space for those working from home. There is ample parking for at least 5 cars.
From the parking area, there is direct access to the woodland that adjoins the property. This is approximately 18 acres of coppice a mixture of mostly oak and hazel trees. There are three old paths in the woods, left over from a time when the hazel was coppiced but there are no public footpaths that cross it. Each year in the spring, it is full of woodland flowers, including English bluebells that flourish in over half of it. There are two separate access points, both with 5 bar gates - one in the cottage's driveway and another on Rams Lane.
There is potential for commercial activity in the woods but there is no requirement to manage this land. The current owners have used it for keeping a running supply of wood for burning in the cottage's inglenook fireplace and for purely recreational purposes.
A 360 degree tour is available to view online, for more information on how to access this please contact us.
The owners have kindly provided a breakdown of the work that has been completed at the property.
