Old Portsmouth Road, Artington, GU3
Tenure: FreeholdRUSHY PLATTS FARM is located in Green Belt and in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, yet it is just 1.2 miles from Guildford High Street itself and the town's Mainline Station (London Waterloo 35 mins).
Rushy Platts Farm is situated centrally within its own grounds of approximately ten acres, bordered by the historic Loseley House and Estate. This stunning property offers wonderfully bright, impressive living accommodation and boasts far-reaching views towards St. Martha's and The Chantries.

If your lifestyle calls for elegant and frequent entertaining, this house is for you!
The property is located exceptionally convenient to Guildford and within just minutes of leaving its private driveway you can be in the heart of town, and yet it retains privacy and seclusion standing in its own grounds.

The owners say, "A huge advantage of living here is the proximity to the town itself. We can be inside Marks and Spencer, Debenhams or House of Fraser stores within fifteen minutes of leaving the house and we allow just ten minutes to get to a platform at the town's Mainline Station. The convenience of this is wonderful."
