Beautifully presented five bedroom family home, on the edge of Merrow Downs.

Situated within a stones throw of Merrow Downs and Guildford Golf Club, 11 Downs Drive is a beautifully appointed five-bedroom family home with generously proportioned accommodation, extending to just under 3,500 sq ft. Built by Berkeley Homes around 11 years ago to their industry-leading high standards and specifications, the house offers light, bright and spacious rooms all set within this small, exclusive private road with direct access via a private gate onto the Downs and golf course.

On the ground floor, the 31ft kitchen is the heart of the house and is fitted with an attractive range of units, with clever further additions to what was initially supplied by Berkeley Homes including a large built-in media unit. The ground floor accommodation is completed with three separate reception rooms, a utility room and cloakroom.

The first floor offers five bedrooms, four of which have an excellent range of fitted furniture, and four bathrooms (3 suites). Of particular note is the master bedroom which has a dressing area leading into the beautifully fitted bathroom with a large walk-in shower. All the bathrooms are well finished with large mirrors and attractive tiling.

Outside, the rear garden has been attractively landscaped and provides a number of seating areas, all interspersed with mature shrubs and trees to provide shade and interest. Access is from two sets of bi-folding doors from the kitchen/breakfast/family room as well as patio doors from the living room, and an electric awning as been fitted above the main set of doors from the kitchen to provide shade and space ideal for outdoor dining. The garden enjoys a sunny westerly aspect and offers a very high degree of privacy. The property also benefits from a double garage and driveway in front.

Merrow shops are within easy reach and provide a splendid range of local shops including an M&S, chemist and post office. Schooling is excellent with several within walking distance including Merrow Infant School, Bushy Hill Primary School, St Thomas of Canterbury, Boxgrove Primary, St Peters and George Abbot. Top independent schools such as RGS, GHS, Tormead and Cranmore are within a 10min drive. 

Guildford with its famous cobbled High Street and Castle is located approximately 2 miles away, providing an extensive range of leisure and recreational facilities with a wide range of shops, restaurants, the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, a cinema complex, G Live, Surrey Sports Park and Spectrum Leisure Centre. 

Transport links are excellent with a regular bus service into Guildford and 2 stations including the mainline station connecting to London Waterloo in approximately 37 minutes. The A3 is closeby linking to the M25 motorway, Gatwick and Heathrow Airports.
