A handsome Victorian wing located in one of Guildford’s most sought after roads. Steeped in history and offering some truly stunning character features, this family home is offered to the market for the first time in over half a century. Set in an elevated position and benefitting from large windows, generously proportioned rooms and high ceilings, the accommodation is bright and airy as a result. Although the property is smartly presented, the property would suit a new owner looking to update and invest further. On the ground floor there is an impressive dining room and sitting room, the latter of which overlooks the stunning gardens and has a beautiful set of doors leading to the patio area. There is a large kitchen breakfast room with plenty of room for a dining table and has a lovely aspect over the south facing courtyard. There is also a useful pantry off the kitchen, a W.C. and access to a covered walkway at the side of the house. Over the first and second floors are four bedrooms and a family bathroom, the master bedroom benefitting from wonderful view over the garden and beyond.
Guildown Road is a highly regarded residential road, in the main comprising substantial individual houses in large grounds on the southern slopes of the Downs on the south-west side of Guildford. The location is particularly convenient for access to both the main line station (Waterloo 38 minutes) and the High Street, both of which are within 0.75 mile. For commuters by road, there is access onto the A3 in 1.5 miles, which also connects with the M25 motorway. At the top of the road a footpath leads onto the open Downs and there are also some lovely walks nearby along the tow path of the River Wey.
The property is accessed over a shared gravel driveway which leads to a private parking area for several cars and a large detached garage. There is a covered access to the side of the property which links through to the south facing courtyard at the rear. The courtyard is a real sun trap which is ideal for alfresco dining due to the sheltered situation and access to the kitchen. There steps down to a large cellar which is located beneath the sitting room and is used by the current owner for storage. Beyond the courtyard there is a patio area which can also be accessed from the sitting room and again, due to the orientation it provides an amazing space to entertain. The garden beyond the patio is a mature and private space, mainly laid to lawn and planted with trees, plants and shrubs which add detail to this stunning area.
