Two Surrey homes commutable to London

I've got a 1920s house and a 1930s house to show you this week - both in leafy (or rather soggy) Surrey.
First the terraced house above, in a lovely setting in the ancient village of Godstone. There's a guide price of £275k, a reduction on a couple of weeks ago and pricey, but not excessive, for a three-bed property in that area of Surrey.
Built in 1924, it needs modernising and the windows and roof look like they may need some attention, but the house has some lovely original features - and the view is to die for!

There are dilapidated gardens to the front and back and the terrace is at Winders Hill, near the end of a private lane. It's on the market through Howard Cundey. More details here.
Next the detached, three-bed home below, in the village of Ash Vale, around 20 minutes from Guildford and a 40 minutes train commute from Ash Vale station to Waterloo.

The house itself is surrounded by fields and wooded areas - "nestled within a quiet location", according to the agent.
Except not exactly - this is the (unmanned) waste treatment plant the house overlooks:

However, it's a decent sized house and an interesting renovation job and, to be fair, the treatment plant isn't exactly on the doorstep (that's the view, above).

It comes with planning permission for a two-storey extension and double garage and it's in a good-size plot.
The house is on the market through Mackenzie Smith at £275k, details here.
