This exceptional wing is part of the original house built in 1896, extended in the 1920's, divided in the 1950's, totally refurbished in 2006, and further extended in 2011. The grounds were professionally landscaped around the same time. Approached over a most attractive courtyard to the front of the house. There are high ceilings and several original fireplaces and the major extension is split level giving added interest and flexibility of living space. Most windows are double glazed and there is underfloor heating to tiled floors and radiators elsewhere.
The refurbishment was carried out to exacting standards resulting in a very fine family house. There is a beautifully appointed Seymour kitchen and breakfast area as well as the benefit of an Au-Pair room with adjacent shower room.
Westbrook Road runs from the railway station to the top of the hill, which includes many fine country houses set in extensive grounds. The original Westbrook Manor was owned by General James Oglethorpe who founded the state of Georgia.
Godalming is a thriving country town with a semi-pedestrianised High Street with many restaurants, cafes and specialist shops, there are also Sainsbury's and Waitrose supermarkets. There are excellent schools in the area including Charterhouse, and Prior's Field as well as St Hilary's and Aldro Preparatory Schools. The local state schools have an excellent reputation, and there is a very popular Sixth Form College in Busbridge. The County town of Guildford is within 5 miles and offers unrivalled facilities.
The garden faces south east and includes fine lawns, shaped clipped hedges and original bargate stone walls, a pergola, apple, plum and damson fruit trees, a "secret garden" and a play area. There is a raised terrace off the lower sitting room. Also an area of woodland bordering Westbrook Road which is private and a no through road. In the winter there are far reaching views across to Charterhouse. There are two large sheds for storage. The whole provides a beautiful setting and extends to over 0.6 acre.
A Residents Association exists to oversee maintenance of the private road. A surplus exists in the road fund and so no further annual contributions are required at present. The private drainage system at Westhanger is also shared with a proportion of the costs met by each user and also for the upkeep of the driveway. The agents will be pleased to supply further details on request.
