Property Summary

*** Sold Subject To Contract ***

Sometimes a house grabs your attention with a beautiful hallway, or kitchen; sometimes it’s a garden; In the case of Poplar Cottages in Littlewick Common, it’s the location which took our breath away, surrounded by mature woodland giving a feeling of living in the woods.

Having a home that offers this level of privacy is incredibly appealing and whilst feeling entirely remote and removed from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the villages of Knaphill and Horsell are just a short distance away for all amenities and a couple of miles away is Woking town centre.

On your doorstep is Horsell Common which has a wonderful mix of landscapes with heathland, woodland and meadows. The Horsell Common Preservation Society is a charity that owns and manages the Common and has responsibility also for Littlewick Common.

With its charming appearance as you stroll down the garden path to the front door, internally No.1 Poplar Cottages is perfectly liveable, however does provide an opportunity to update and enhance – but to focus on that ignores the true selling point here: those glorious acres of tranquil woodland presents a sort of fantasy setting.

With two double bedrooms, main with en-suite shower and family bathroom upstairs, views of leafy trees are available from every window – from the front to the back.

Very generous reception space is available here with three reception rooms and kitchen through to dining room. There is also a practical downstairs cloakroom.

Outside in the pretty cottage garden is a busy pond teaming with wildlife and together with the sounds of the wind in the trees and the trickling of the water feature, you are sure to tune out. With plenty of space to plant raised beds, potter in the greenhouse or enjoy summer evenings entertaining this is a green space of your own.

A very useful outbuilding with electrics is currently being used for storage and utilities, additional storage is available in the detached garage. Driveway and allocated parking is available to the front of No.1 once your visitors have discovered your hidden gem !

While it seems as if it must be miles from anywhere, civilisation is actually helpfully near. In walking distance down the private lane is Squires garden centre which following a significant extension offers  an inspirational plant area, a larger shop and the extended café bar with beautiful outdoor veranda. Horsell Common plays a key role in providing green space and is a great place to walk, they welcome well behaved dogs and their owners.

Heather Farm is also an ideal starting point for walking on the common or just meeting up with friends for refreshments at the dog-friendly café. There is a large free car park with plenty of disabled parking areas, EV charging points and a “posh wash” for muddy paw washing.
