A substantial family home in a prime residential road on the edge of Guildford town centre at the gateway to the Surrey Hills. Sitting in beautifully tended, level and south facing gardens of half an acre this elegantly proportioned home is smartly presented but somewhat dated and would suit a buyer looking to put their own mark on a property. Dating we believe to the 1920’s, living space on offer extends to over 3,000sq ft and is arranged around a beautifully proportioned, central hall, grand staircase and galleried landing. Principal reception space looks mainly out over the rear, south facing garden; there is obvious potential to further update and enlarge the property subject to obtaining the usual consents. All five bedrooms are particularly generous and there are two bathrooms on the first floor as well as a recently modernised shower room on the ground floor.
Downside Road is one of Guildford’s most desirable places to live, located just 1.2 miles from the centre of town and yet on the very edge of the North Downs, St Martha’s Hill and Newlands Corner.
Guildford is a vibrant and cosmopolitan town with a huge range of shopping, dining, social and recreational amenities, matched by a dynamic university and an excellent range of schooling in both the state and private sectors. There are two railway stations at London Road and Guildford mainline providing fast and frequent services to London Waterloo in as little as 38 minutes and the A3 provides access to London and the south coast and via the M25 to Heathrow and Gatwick Airports.
Set well back from the road behind mature and immaculately tended gardens the property has a deep driveway with parking for several cars and a single garage adjacent to the house. The mature, beautifully stocked gardens lie mainly to the rear of the house and are currently sub divided into a smaller kitchen garden and a larger, more formal traditional garden with lawns, specimen trees and mature borders. There is a paved patio area across the rear of the house for alfresco entertaining. Additional storage includes a wooden summerhouse and a timber shed.
