Recently named as the Best Place to live in the South East 2021, the Surrey Hills is a collection of picturesque English villages that combine wooded hills, flower-rich grasslands, traditional British pubs and independent boutiques. For buyers seeking a place to call home within this idyllic landscape, the historical market town of Godalming is a must see. Positioned just 30 miles or a 50-minute train journey from London, homeowners here perfectly balance rural living with the hustle and bustle of the UKs capital. Centrally located, Amber Lodge by Shanly Homes is a collection of spacious apartments that are within walking distance of the town and its amenities.
Greg Kaye, Head of Sales at Shanly Homes comments: “Amber Lodge is a fantastic collection of apartments. Thanks to its convenient location, buyers are able to walk into town in under five minutes, whilst river and woodland walks are all easily reachable. Travel connections from Godalming are enviable, with residents able to reach Guildford in under ten minutes and London in under an hour. Our selection of two-bedroom apartments at Amber Lodge are sure to tick many boxes and we encourage interested parties to book a viewing today.”
Profiting from open plan kitchen / living / dining rooms, the apartments have been designed to cater for a range of lifestyles. A hub of the home, the living space is perfect for entertaining friends and family, when restrictions ease, or for relaxing after a busy day at work. Bedrooms are spacious, with master suites benefitting from an en-suite shower room, fitted wardrobes and dedicated dressing areas. Furthermore, all apartments are complete with allocated parking spaces and secure cycle storage.
Homeowners who like to venture out and explore the local area are well catered for at Amber Lodge. The Godalming Farmers’ Market is held on the last Saturday of every month providing residents with the perfect opportunity to stock up on locally made produce and to support local businesses, whilst Waitrose and Sainsbury’s are a short walk from home.
