Tenure: Freehold

In the exclusive Warwicks Bench area, half a mile from the High Street; a magnificent Victorian house of over 8,500 square feet, impeccably presented throughout with great flair, in a commanding position with distant southerly views and a landscaped garden of 0.86 acre. EPC D.

Kingsdown Lacey stands in a commanding, elevated position in the exclusive Warwicks Bench area of Guildford, on the slopes of Pewley Down with lovely southerly views to Chantry Woods and beyond.

The impressive electric gated entrance leads up to the house; one of the original grand houses to have been built on Warwicks Bench at the end of the nineteenth century and which stands within its original plot of just under one acre. The impressive elevations are of fine brickwork with stone mullioned, double glazed windows under a tiled roof. The house has been redesigned to maximise its superb setting and provide exceptional family living with the emphasis on style and, comfort. Rejuvenated in recent years by the current owners to an exceptionally high standard, many of the original architectural features remain, including an impressive octagonal reception hall, a magnificent staircase and fine fireplaces. The 34 ft. kitchen/breakfast/family room now features a stunning Smallbone kitchen, with wall-to-wall cabinetry, two large central islands both with breakfast bars and a substantial range of integrated appliances.

Typical of the period, the accommodation is arranged over three floors with well-proportioned rooms and high ceilings. In addition, there is a basement with a utility room and a large games/potential cinema room. Although now lapsed, detailed planning permission was granted in 2008 to build a lower ground indoor swimming pool with terrace above.
