Hexdown benefits from a particularly convenient situation in a well-regarded residential road to the east of Guildford.

London Road station offers a stopping service to London and neighbouring towns is just 0.6 mile away via local footpaths. The main A3 provides a direct route to London and the south coast, linking at Wisley with the M25 for the airports and the national motorway network. Other main roads connect Guildford with major towns in Surrey, Hampshire and Sussex. There is a very good selection of state and private schools in the area including, Holy Trinity, The Royal Grammar School, St Catherine's, Guildford High School, Charterhouse and many others.

Recreational opportunities include two theatres, a multiplex cinema and the G-Live event venue in the town centre; the Spectrum Sports and Leisure Centre in Stoke Park and golf at a number of local clubs. Guildford town has a good range of restaurants and bars whilst the many nearby villages offer an enticing array of country pubs and restaurants to be discovered.


Dating from 1972, Hexdown is a distinctive split-level family house typical of the period. Of particular note to purchasers, in January 2016 planning permission was granted to demolish Hexdown and to build a six bedroom house over three floors, planning reference 15/P/02101, providing an exceptional opportunity for development in one of Guildford's most sought after roads.

Alternatively, there is an opportunity to overhaul the existing property, which has the potential to benefit from some sympathetic upgrading and decoration to provide a spacious and comfortable family home in the unique style of its period
