Located in one of Guildford's most sought after residential roads, and within a stones throw of Chantry Wood this substantial, period family home offers well proportioned and versatile accommodation arranged over two floors.
Originally built in the late 1920s, the property has been extended by the current owners yet still provides further scope (STPP). There are a number of stunning original character features throughout the property which have been wonderfully blended with modern fixtures and fittings. The accommodation on the ground floor consists of a double aspect drawing room, family room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, study and utility room. There is also access to an integral double garage.
The first floor has five bedrooms, and three bathrooms, the master bedroom benefiting from an en-suite bathroom.
Outside there is a wonderfully landscaped, sunken front garden, and a driveway leading to the garage. A particular feature is the large, south facing rear garden which is very well stocked with wonderful flower beds, hedging and a pond. The large patio provides the perfect space for summer entertaining.
The Chantries form part of the Surrey Hills, and offers fantastic walks, taking in many breath taking sights including St Martha's and Newlands Corner. It is recognised as an area of outstanding natural beauty, and properties like Chantry Hayes rarely become available due to its superb location. Guildford is the historic and vibrant county town of Surrey, offering first class entertainment and shopping, and is a gateway to some of the most stunning scenery in the South East of England. Guildford has excellent transport links, with the A3 linking to the M25 just 6 miles away and for those that commute by train, the service to Waterloo from the mainline station is excellent, with times from approximately 36 minutes. There are a number of first class schools in the town, including Guildford High School for Girls, The Royal Grammar School, Tormead and Lanesborough, as well as those further afield. The state sector is also very well catered for, with both George Abbot School and Guildford County School being well thought of.
