About this property

TENURE: Freehold

  • Country Houses

Castle House is undoubtedly one of Guildford’s finest and historic town houses. Foremost a very comfortable family home, presented with great style and flair, but also a superb property for entertaining both informally, and on a grand

scale if desired. Grade II Listed, with researched origins in the 17th century, it has an iconic and noteworthy Georgian facade. Much restoration has been undertaken over the years and the house retains many fine period features including working shutters and beautiful fireplaces. The fitted Chalon kitchen/breakfast room has an Aga, exposed and restored oak floorboards and French doors leading out to the garden. The bedrooms are all of good dimensions, and there are 5 reception rooms with the drawing room and dining room being particularly elegant. The magnificent ballroom, featuring an enormous intricately carved marble fireplace, is a spectacular space for entertaining. Two sets of grand French doors opening out to the secluded garden, create a wonderful indoor/outdoor flow, where the garden becomes very much part of the living and

entertaining space. Within the house there is a self-contained one bedroom apartment.

Situation
Castle House is centrally located in close walking distance to Guildford’s town centre and historic cobbled High Street. It lies adjacent to the Norman castle grounds. Guildford offers and enormous range of amenities as well as renowned cultural

and commercial attractions. Within the town centre there is an extensive range of department stores, London retail outlets, boutique shops, cafés 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 walk-able 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; and also for girls, St Catherine's in Bramley.

Outside
Despite the town centre location, the garden which is walled in part, is an unexpectedly large and remarkably secluded haven, with stunning garden lighting and an irrigation system. It has been landscaped to a master plan designed by Chelsea Gold Medal winner Bunny Guinness. A large sheltered paved terrace is a wonderful sun-trap, and there is a charming outside dining area, beneath a clematis clad pergola. A series of shallow rising steps lead to a level badminton court sized lawn and beyond this there is an additional hidden area; currently a productive kitchen garden.
