Property Summary

Westerton Cottage has a distinct uniqueness – in a world of sameness, being different means it genuinely stands out – this home will indeed be a treat for anyone who loves to live in a one-of-a-kind residence and location!

Dating back to 1895 and situated at the end of a tranquil leafy private lane, Westerton Cottage was a charming period home and is now, having been extended over the years, a remarkable four bedroom home with a certain twist and turn to it and no less charm.

Step in through the front door … and the features such as the vaulted ceiling in the free-flowing living space may just take your breath away. A humble staircase has been transformed into an architectural feature which now plays a starring role in the home and provides a quirky and sleek design.

The internal courtyard adds a special element inviting sunlight into the home office and with glass and wood as the dominant materials used throughout, they offer a connection to nature and the outdoors and make the most of the views of the wrap-around garden and decked area.

A galleried landing with skylights allows an abundance of natural light to flood through giving the whole space an airy feel throughout the day – then at the heart of the home is a contrast and a warm welcome awaits you in the evening in the cosy living room with fireplace and exposed brickwork.

Providing versatile accommodation with a family-friendly and flexible layout for every-day living, this adaptable home embodies the perfect at-home entertaining space: a space that is comfortable, practical and stylish.

Having an outdoor area that you love adds tremendous value to your quality of life and here is a sanctuary for playing, relaxing and entertaining. Within the grounds and surrounded by a privacy hedge in a location that faces the sun and is sheltered from the wind - so a wonderful sun-trap - is the pool and summerhouse. In addition, for those forgotten towels, the convenience of the pool changing/shower room is just a few steps away.

Westerton Cottage has a distinct feel to it – with views of the pool from the kitchen and the upstairs verandah, you may well get the feeling you have been yearning for – a more relaxed village lifestyle, tucked away with lovely neighbours yet just moments from the centre of the highly regarded village of Pyrford.

As you approach this traditional looking semi-detached Victorian cottage you will begin to realise you are in a one-of-a-kind location, with parking comfortably for eight vehicles on the driveway, you then realise this is not quite what it seems … that all changes the second you open the front door.

Very much about this home is totally unique: its history, its shape, its appearance, and without a shadow of doubt, its interior design. It’s a place with many contrasts. You would think the original might clash with the new – it’s architecture is bold and we believe this is a sophisticated blend of historical, traditional, and contemporary features which all come together to make it striking, eye-catching and intriguing.

Westerton Cottage has a personality all of its own which makes it special and memorable.

Pyrford village in Surrey is not far from the towns of Woking and Guildford and has a sense of peace and tranquility to it.  Only a short distance away is the Wey navigation offering plenty of dog and country walks, running and cycle routes. It is on the edge of green belt land which gives it a rural country feel about it and therefore Pyrford offers the best of both worlds in that it feels rural yet close to all amenities.

In the centre of the village you will find the parade of local friendly and welcoming shops to include a superb butchers, bakery, hairdressers, dentist and more… however, a short walk into West Byfleet and you will find the railway station with fast trains to Waterloo, banks, the Doctors practice for the area and a great selection of restaurants.

Pyrford C of E Primary School provides an engaging and enriching education for all and has an Ofsted outstanding inspection report. The village has a lovely atmosphere and a pleasant community with an active church and plenty of golf clubs. The selection of leisure pursuits available in the local area is vast - so spoilt for choice ! The busy village hall is used for a number of different activities for all ages such as Pyrford Playgroup and Pyrford Little Theatre which is an award-winning amateur drama group who regularly stage productions including plays and pantomimes. Pyrford Cricket Club is central to Pyrford village life and has a friendly mens and womens team and a thriving Colts section. The clubhouse provides the perfect backdrop for an idyllic day’s cricket serving beverages and food.

Communications are superb with the A3 providing direct access to London, the M25 and the national motorway network only a few miles away.
