Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

Designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens for Gertrude Jekyll in 1894-1895, this magical and historic four bedroom home is grade 2* listed. Originally the house was built for Miss Jekyll's Swiss gardener and even today you can enjoy fabulous fruit and produce from the walled gardens.
Character features are abundant as you would expect from the Arts and Crafts super duo. Bargate stone, timber and plaster elevations, diamond-set mullion and ogee windows and Welsh slate floors are just naming a few. Through a little timber gate from Brighton Road and down a footpath you are welcomed by the charming front elevation; It's beautifully crafted and includes a covered porch with a wooden bench adjacent to the front door. Day-to-day access is via the kitchen door which is conveniently located closer to the driveway and garage that is accessed via Heath Lane.
The current owners of Munstead Orchard have lovingly cared for, extended and improved the accommodation over the years working closely with Waverley Borough Council and the Historic Buildings Officer each time. The space is functional and practical.
Upstairs the main bedroom has a wall of built-in storage and lovely rural outlook across neighbouring land. There are two further spacious bedrooms and all are serviced by the shower room. While downstairs there is a snug/ fourth bedroom adjacent to another bathroom with shower overhead. Two wonderful reception spaces each with their own character and qualities enjoy fireplaces and restored floors. The kitchen has been enlarged and improved significantly in later years, still "galley" in style there are masses of work surface carved from a single piece of Oak, with twin sinks, plenty of storage and space for an under counter fridge, dishwasher, six burner range cooker and integrated extractor fan. The kitchen features reclaimed terracotta floors sourced from an 18th century manor house.
An intriguing stone stairwell accessed from the garden leads to a brilliant cellar underneath part of the house with power and light, perfect for storing produce from the garden this cool temperature room would also be a wine collectors dream. For others, there may be an opportunity to convert subject to planning permission and listed building consent.

Outside
Gardens extend to 0.55 acres and wrap around three sides of the property, as does a beautiful stone wall which encompasses a splendid little folly designed by Lutyens called TheThunder House. It is said that Miss Jekyll had this little tower built so that she could watch the sky during thunder storms. Vegetable patches, wisteria, Rose gardens, box and yew hedging and of course the orchard, can be found as you walk around the gardens. There is a useful shed, summerhouse and glass house. Parking for several vehicles is possible on the gated gravel driveway which is accessed via Heath Lane and leads to the detached single garage.

Situation
In an area of Godalming synonymous with both Sir Edwin Lutyens & Gertrude Jekyll, with many large Period houses & estates. The property is within 1 mile of Godalming High Street and all the conveniences of this pretty market town. The property is within close proximity of the excellent Busbridge schools, while there is also St Edmunds, St Hilary's, Godalming Sixth Form College, Charterhouse & Prior's Field.
The National Trust owned Winkworth Arboretum (96 acres of woodland, rhododendrons & azaleas), is two miles away, whilst the Town of Guildford is 4.5 miles to the north. Beautiful countryside walks can be enjoyed from the garden gate.
