A short drive away, the historic town of Guildford offers an extensive range of high street shopping and a selection of cultural and leisure amenities. These include a wide choice of restaurants, night clubs, the renowned Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, The Electric Theatre, a multiplex cinema and the G-Live entertainment venue. The nearby market town of Farnham also offers an extensive range of shops, restaurants, boutiques and supermarkets, including Waitrose.

Constructed in a Georgian style, with its pillared portico, pediment roof, stucco elevations and classical square-paned sash windows, Inwood Manor is a revelation, having only been built in 1992, as a copy of an Irish country house. Whilst supplying all the style and ambience of the period, it is a modern and efficient family home, with all the comfort and amenities required for life today.
Internally, the property provides extensive family accommodation arranged over three floors around a central staircase and light-well. The front door opens into a spacious and stylish reception hall, with an elegant staircase rising to the first and second floors. The high corniced ceiling creates an immediate sense of space, whilst full height, south-facing, windows flood the room with light. A bright and comfortable, triple aspect, drawing room features an attractive French style, marble, fireplace, and has garden views all round, with a French door opening to a sheltered terrace and the gardens. Beyond the drawing room, there is a fitted library/media room that also has garden access. The well-fitted kitchen/breakfast room includes an AGA and a range of rustic pine and painted furniture, and an open arch leads to a family room.
First floor accommodation comprises a most elegant, double aspect, master suite, with a beautifully appointed bathroom. There is also a comfortable guest suite, three further bedrooms and two family bath/shower rooms completing the first floor accommodation. Stairs continue to the second floor where there are three further bedrooms, a bathroom, spacious linen cupboard and access to eaves storage.
Gardens and Grounds
Inwood Manor is approached from the Hogs Back via a shared private lane and then a long sweeping drive leading down to the house. The drive initially arrives at a generous parking and turning area then continues to a spacious forecourt adjoining house and garages.
The formal gardens surrounding the house comprise two sheltered paved terraces, accessed from the drawing room and family room, and a full width, paved, south-facing terrace. A croquet lawn, bordered by pleached limes, extends away from the terrace to steps leading up to an orchard. To the west of the house, a wide path, with beautifully planted herbaceous and rose borders, curves away and leads to a further area of lawn, with magnificent shrub and flower borders, all enclosed within tall evergreen hedges. There is also a well-tended fruit cage and vegetable garden, with a lean-to, period style, greenhouse by Alitex.
To the rear of the house, a further area of lawn extends to a ha-ha, beyond which the land slopes gently away to paddocks and woodland beyond. There is an irrigation system for most of the formal grounds. The meticulously tended gardens, hedges and mature trees make the garden a delight, with year-round colour and interest.
