A striking and substantial family house with extraordinary and uninterrupted views. Built and fitted to a very high specification with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, the design of this 2007 house is of distinct Arts and Crafts style with many architectural features respectfully influenced by the work of Sir Edwin Lutyens, the most renown and sought after architect of his time.
The accommodation is uncompromising in its scale and is oriented to take full advantage of the spectacular views to the South and West. The atmosphere is bright, airy and welcoming. An Opus integrated sound system is wired to all main areas. Vaulted ceilings and a perfect balance of both informal and more formal rooms over three storeys add to the appeal. A separate wing povides an additional bedroom and could be self-contained. The top floor is wonderful bonus space, ideal as a games room, gym, or additional bedrooms if desired.
The house occupies one of Guildford's best locations, on elevated ground just to the south of the historic High Street. There is exceptional countryside right on your doorstep, yet it is also within half a mile of the town centre with its extensive range of department stores, boutique shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, G Live, and the mainline station which provides fast commuter services to London Waterloo from 34 minutes. All are walkable from the house. Fast driving is also easily reached on the A3 for Central London, The M25, and Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
There is an excellent choice of schools in the immediate area including The Royal Grammar School and Lanesborough for boys, and Tormead and The High School for girls.
The house is approached by a long drive which descends to a large parking and turning area in front of the double garage. The gardens comprise a wide paved terrace spanning the width of the rear elevation, with well kept lawns beyond. Hedges and mature trees provide privacy and seclusion and there is a pretty summer house. The elevated position is unique with the house and garden commanding uniterrupted views. The outlook from the first floor balconies is truly extraordinary.
