You’ll fall in love with this charming Grade II Listed, 17th century cottage, set in a tranquil rural position in Puttenham

Neighbouring the Hampton Estate, on the southern slopes of the Hog’s Back and within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Druids is a beautiful four-bedroom property, which is surprisingly light for a property of its age.

A cobbled courtyard leads to the traditional wooden front door, complete with antique doorbell. Traditional vernacular construction dominates the cottage’s exterior with handmade clay-tiled roofs, weatherboard cladding, inset brick panels and masonry featuring local bargate stone.

Inside, the cottage features an abundance of character with wonderful beams, original red brick, casement windows and wide oak-planked flooring; it’s the perfect place to spend cosy nights in front of one of the fine open fireplaces.

The ground floor offers good entertaining space with a dining room, kitchen/breakfast room (complete with stable door leading outside), family room and dual-aspect sitting room, which leads to a study or fifth bedroom. There is also a very practical downstairs shower room. Upstairs, the main bedroom has an en suite, while the three other bedrooms share use of a family bathroom.

Outside, the manicured gardens feature a sun terrace for outside entertaining and paved pathways with retaining brick and dry-stone walls. The areas of lawn are edged and interspersed with pretty flower beds and borders. A mixture of hedging and mature trees creates a truly wonderful cottage garden.

The property comes with a large period detached barn, which features three sets of wide double barn doors that open into the main vaulted area. A ladder leads up to the hay lofts, from which you can appreciate beautiful views across the Hampton Estate.
