Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Exceptional character 1871 residence of some 6014 square feet conscientiously reconstructed to restore its original Regency styling and architecture.

Located toward the end of a private road in a setting that includes a lightly wooded area, Maywood House as it stands today has truly been a restoration project that could be classed as a labour of love. The present owners not only re-built the house in 2001, they have ensured that all the rooms have been carefully designed to reflect the character and original styling’s of the nineteenth century. The distinctive elevations, grand entrance and high ceilings, together with the many ornate decorative furnishings leave quite an impression.

On the ground floor the marble floored reception hall with impressive hand carved Adams staircase leads to a grandiose drawing room, with feature bay window and access to the conservatory, which overlooks the landscaped gardens beyond. This adjoins the lavishly decorated 'Adams' inspired dining room, the impressively appointed 'Clive Christian' kitchen/breakfast room and utility and walk-in larder. The ground floor is completed by a study and large cloakroom.

The galleried first floor landing gives access to five generous bedrooms, all with accompanying en-suites and many with aspects over the gardens. There is a laundry room and balcony.

The second floor staircase is accessed by a door from the landing and is at present arranged as a self contained two bedroom apartment, with reception room, fitted kitchen, shower room and roof terrace.

Outside, the driveway leads further to the side of the property past a large driveway parking area that provides access to a large garden store with storage above, which has been converted from a former World War II air raid shelter. The rear gardens are approached by an impressive sandstone paved terrace, enjoying the southern elevations of the house, with steps leading to the landscaped gardens which feature an Italian style pond with attractive marine styled fountain.

The property is on the Eastern side of Camberley in excellent school catchment areas, with Tomlinscote and Ravenscote Schools being in close proximity.
The house is approximately 1.4 miles from the rail station and town centre which offers an excellent selection of both local and national shopping names, together with first rate leisure and restaurant facilities to suit most tastes as well as easy access to the M3 and A30 trunk routes.
