Cardwell’s Keep was originally home to the Queen’s Regiment, one of the oldest in the British Army. The fine old buildings that once housed the officers of the Regiment have now been thoughtfully refurbished to provide a limited number of elegant apartments and houses. Our top floor flat is a fine example of this.
A security entry-phone system gives access to the staircase leading to the 3rd floor. A private front door leads to the entrance lobby, which is a great place for hanging coats etc. A further door leads into the main hallway. A stunning feature of this flat is its superb sitting/dining room, with excellent dimensions and featuring three tall full-tilt double glazed windows with fantastic views across Guildford. The kitchen is well fitted with a comprehensive range of oak-style eye and base level units, a large range of work surfaces, four-burner gas hob with oven below, and spaces for dishwasher, washing machine and fridge/freezer. There is also a built-in double storage cupboard. The master bedroom is of very good proportions and features two built-in double wardrobes and two tall full-tilt double glazed windows. Bedroom two is a good-sized room currently used as a study. The bathroom is likewise sizeable and fitted with a bathroom suite and separate walk-in shower. The property is heated via a gas central heating system to radiators.
This apartment has sole access to the exceptional outside space, an incredible private roof terrace which can be accessed by the main staircase. Offering 360-degree view of Guildford and most of Surrey, extending as far as the City of London. The terrace is currently well planted with a variety of fruit and vegetables, taking full advantage of the uninterrupted light.
Outside, The Keep is surrounded by very well maintained gardens enclosed by wrought iron railings beyond which are the park-like grounds of Cardwells Keep. The flat comes with a share of the freehold and the service charge is £150 pcm.
