A detached family home offering tremendous scope, located in one of Guildford's most sought after areas and in a no through road. This family house is perfectly located for the local schooling with Onslow Infants, Queen Eleanors and Guildford County all being very close by. The Downs are perfect for recreation and within a few hundred yards can be found the Arboretum and Onslow village Recreation ground. The Onslow Village 'parade' of shops are within a short walk, but Guildford town is only around a mile away.
The property currently offers versatile accommodation arranged over two floors, yet many of the neighbouring properties have been extended to provide larger accommodation. Subject to planning permission, we feel the store room to the side could be removed to allow a large side extension. There are currently three reception spaces, three bedrooms and a family bathroom, whilst outside there is a double garage, and a large store room. There is also driveway parking in front of the garage and the rear garden offers a sunny aspect with the overall plot approaching a fifth of an acre.
Abbots Close is conveniently located on the Western side of the town centre, providing access to the North Downs, perfect for a walk through the countryside. The mainline station and town centre are also easily accessed in addition to being well positioned for the County School and the University of Surrey. The historic town of Guildford offers a wide range of shopping, leisure and cultural amenities, including restaurants, theatres, multiplex cinema, the Spectrum Sport and Leisure Centre.
Communications are good, with the A3 connecting with the M25 at Wisley for access to the airports and the national motorway network. In addition, the town benefits from two railway stations offering fast and frequent services into London Waterloo, with journey times from about 36 minutes, as well as links to Gatwick Airport in addition to the RailAir coach service, direct to Heathrow Airport.
