Full description

The Gatehouse forms part of a superb Arts and Crafts’ house, built around 1916 and designed by renowned architect A.C Burlingham. Recently the original property has undergone a sympathetic split and this portion now offers versatile accommodation arranged over three floors.

Many of the original character features still remain, with oak panelling, wooden floors, fire places and leaded light windows being some of these, but the majority of the property has been extensively refurbished. The accommodation offers wellproportioned rooms with highlights being the drawing room with a bay window overlooking the rear garden, and the large and newly fitted kitchen/breakfast room which has direct access onto the rear garden. On the first floor there is a large master bedroom suite, a further double bedroom and family bathroom, whilst the second floor has a further bedroom.

Outside the property is approached by electric gates and a driveway offering parking for numerous vehicles and leading to the double garage. If a buyer required a fourth bedroom, converting the garage or part of it would offer a simple solution for this subject to the usual permissions. The gardens to the rear are mature and well stocked and are around a quarter of an acre.

Abbotswood is an attractive residential area set approximately one mile to the north east of
Guildford Town Centre. Many of the area’s premier schools are nearby, including The Royal Grammar School, The High School for Girls, Lanesborough, Tormead and George Abbot. The Spectrum Sports Centre and Stoke Park are also a short walk away providing wonderful sporting and recreational facilities. The County Town of Guildford offers a wide range of shopping facilities as well as many fine restaurants and the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre. For the commuter, Abbotswood is set within easy striking distance of the A3 at Burpham, which leads
to the M25 and London’s airports. For those that commute by rail, Guildford mainline station offers a service to London/Waterloo from approximately 34 minutes.

From the mini roundabout at the top of Guildford High Street take the London Road and proceed over the traffic lights and pass Guildford High School and Stoke Park. Take the second exit at the roundabout, continuing on the London Road and take the first turning into Abbotswood. The Gatehouse (1A) is the second house on the left hand side.
