Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A generously proportioned family home located in a quiet cul-de-sac location in the highly sought after Boxgrove area. The property benefits from bright living space which would now benefit from updating. The ground floor is a notably generous size, with an open plan double aspect sitting room and French doors to the south facing garden. The open plan kitchen and breakfast room is a great size with plenty of room for dining and entertaining. From the kitchen there is access to the utility room with access to the garden and through to a playroom/bedroom 5 with ensuite shower room. There is a further W.C. on the ground floor as well as a large study. On the first floor there are four generous bedrooms (the master room is notably large), a family bathroom and a charming balcony area. The property would lend itself well to modernisation and extending (subject to planning) although it currently offers fantastically flexible accommodation.


The property is conveniently located about 1.7 miles from the historic town centre of Guildford, which offers an extensive range of recreational and cultural amenities, including the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Electric Theatre and G Live. Guildford town centre has a wide range of shops, coffee shops and restaurants. In addition, the surrounding villages offer an eclectic variety of country pubs and restaurants. Local shops and restaurants can be found in Merrow which is less than a mile away. Leisure facilities include the Surrey Sports Park, Spectrum Sports Centre, a wide range of local golf and tennis clubs, including the nearby Pit Farm Tennis Club, The Guildford Golf Course to be found on the nearby Merrow Downs and The Clandon Centre which adjoins The Merrow Cricket Ground. The surrounding Surrey Hills; an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is ideal for walking, cycling and riding. Newlands Corner is a picnic site and beauty spot on a ridge of the Albury Downs, part of the North Downs and is situated about 1.5 miles south east to the property. The Guildford area is renowned for its excellent range of both state and independent schools amongst which are St Peter's, The Royal Grammar School, Guildford High School, Tormead, Lanesborough, Holy Trinity, and George Abbott.


To the front of the property is a parking area for several cars and a well kept level lawn. There is access to the side of the property which leads to a raised patio area at the rear of the house, ideal for alfresco dining and entertaining. Beyond the patio the south facing garden is laid to lawn with mature evergreen trees on the rear boundary, making the garden a lovely private space to be enjoyed.
