This endearing 1700s countryside property in Surrey has just gone on the market for £1.2 million.

Situated in the heart of the quaint village of Betchworth, this charming Grade II listed home known as Tranquil House is as perfect as can be. The exterior has white stone, shutter windows and boarders of blossoming pink flowers. Believed to date from around 1770, the house was actually the village Post Office at the end of the 19th century.

Inside, there is an impressive kitchen/diner space (fitted with smart Martin Moore cabinets), a living room with a crackling fireplace, dining room, four bedrooms, a family space and a practical utility room.

While original features such as wooden beams and stone walls tap into the property's history, the inside has been given a modern touch with plenty of contemporary furnishings.

Perhaps the main pull of this property is the heated outdoor swimming pool. No matter what the weather is, you can be sure to enjoy a blissful dip while also soaking up the picture-perfect garden views. It's situated right towards the end of the garden, creating a private place to enjoy a dip.

The local area has everything new homeowners could need. You'll find an ancient church, two pubs, a village school, shops and a post office. Just a short drive away you'll find Reigate and Dorking, both of which are packed with high street shops and chain restaurants.
