Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Understood to date from around 1925, The Crest is a substantial and impressive family house bordering Worplesdon Golf Course showing an abundance of character true to the Arts and Crafts Movement. A large sweeping driveway with turning circle leads to the imposing façade of the property with twin garages and a stone arched entrance which conceals an equally charming interior.

The attractive and spacious reception hall with solid oak flooring includes corniced ceilings and arched openings with doors to all rooms and a cloakroom /w/c. The elegant galleried staircase sits opposite the central living/drawing room. This dual interconnecting reception room was previously two separate rooms and now enjoys triple aspect with views and direct access to the garden and feature fireplace. The dining room/games room sits next door to this room with equal far reaching views and direct access to the garden. This room is a particularly attractive reception with an original working feature carved stone fireplace and serving hatch through to the kitchen. This more formal side of the house is ideal for entertaining whilst the beautifully appointed breakfast/kitchen is ideally suited to informal dining and relaxed family living. Doors from the breakfast area leads into the utility room which in turn leads to the original staff quarters comprising a reception room with fireplace, w/c and secondary staircase.

First floor accommodation offers an elegant and spacious master suite with built in wardrobes and false double doors which open to lead through to a modern recently re fitted en-suite. Two further bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate w/c are on this side of the landing. The landing leads round to a secondary area where there are two further bedrooms, one of which has an additional en-suite bathroom and sitting area.

The property is approached from the road onto a sweeping shingle driveway with circular turning area, and two garages. The gardens and grounds are mature and offer rare complete seclusion and privacy including expansive lawns, seasonal gardens and a selection of trees.

The primary gardens and lawns, evolve and bloom throughout the year, offering delightful views and vistas from every room. Interspersed occasional trees don’t disrupt the view of multiple fairways of Worplesdon Golf Club.

The Crest occupies a private, rural position, adjacent to Worplesdon Golf Club in the Surrey hamlet of Worplesdon Hill, a high status location just three miles south of Woking and five miles north of Guildford. The country setting provides an exceptional commute to London. Woking's mainline railway station offers a 26 min fast train into London Waterloo and is reachable within 10 minutes. Brookwood station is within a 3-4 minute drive and is the next stop from Woking’s fast train.

Worplesdon also has its own mainline station with fast trains to Waterloo during rush hour, bakery, hotel, public house and Church, and lies between Guildford and Woking. Both towns have excellent shopping, recreational and educational facilities. The A3 connects with the M25 at Junction 10 (Wisley), giving easy access to Heathrow and Gatwick Airports.

There is a wide choice of schooling in the area, including Greenfield, Rydes Hill Preparatory, Tormead, Royal Grammar School, Guildford High, Guildford County, Lanesborough, Charterhouse and Aldro, to name but a few.
