An adorable, detached, period property set within grounds that extend to 0.42 acres. The property is believed to be in excess of 300 years old and is reputed to have remained in the ownership of the same family. We believe that, although Rose Cottage has a local listing it has, as yet, avoided a national grading. There is clear evidence of the property's period origins, with a beautiful inglenook fireplace in the living room, some exposed wide plank flooring and some lovely period beams. It is also worth pointing out that a great deal of care has been taken over the years to modernise the property, which now boasts gas central heating and double glazing. On the Northern side of the property there is a lovely period building, which is currently used as a garage and workshop.  The gardens are an absolute delight and clearly benefit from being professionally maintained and back onto fields.

Set on The Street in Tongham close to the centre of the village and local shops which include hairdresser, post office, bakery and general store.  Also of note is the village pub, all of which are within easy walking distance.

The property is strategically situated for ease of access to the A31, which provides a short drive into Farnham offering a wide range of shops, leisure facilities and a centrally positioned station, which services London Waterloo.  Should you choose to drive the other way, along the A31, Guildford is around 7 miles distant.

Side door to a lovely entertaining terrace, predominantly paved with raised flower borders, lovely brick raised planter with central tree, stunning water feature made of railway sleepers and washed stones, Victorian street light bounded by two brick pillared wrought iron gates - the whole leading to:

Garage Complex

The garage is actually a beautiful period building with carriage doors, gable windows, light and power. This building also doubles as a wonderful workshop.

Rear and Side Garden

The garden is, without question, an outstanding feature of this property. It is beautifully presented, of a very decent size and backs onto fields. Briefly laid out as follows: directly behind the property there is a flagstone terrace bounded by soldier bricks and a slate clad herb border; wrapping round the side of the property, the boundary is raised and the path provides access to a lean-to greenhouse with polycarbonate roof and lighting. The garden is predominantly lawned with mature boundaries of beautifully tended hedging, a stunning period 6ft ironstone wall and a more informal boundary, backing directly onto fields. Also of note the lawn has a proper pop-up irrigation system. There are various flower and shrub beds producing bursts of seasonal colour, mature fruit trees, a period well and a central island which now houses a proper cedarwood greenhouse with strip light, pavioured central runway with raised potting bed and planting bed to either side and a heater. The pavioured pathway circumnavigates the greenhouse, which is approached via a pergola, and part-concealed by a strategic planting programme.
