Property description

Northdowns Rise stands in a commanding, elevated position, almost at the end of sought after Fort Road, only 100 metres from the open Downs, providing stunning walks, and within walking distance of the High Street and main line station. There are glorious southerly views to rolling farmland leading onto Chantry Woods and over villages and towns of the Wey Valley to Hindhead and Haslemere on the distant horizon. This stunning location is so high, with such a clear view for so many miles, that the changing weather can be seen rolling in from many miles away to the south. The historic High Street is only at the bottom of the hill, with its many shops, restaurants and bars and the whole town is bustling with life and entertainment for all the family. There is a weekly market in North Street and monthly farmer's market in the High Street, Yvonne Arnaud Theatre and GLive, and the Spectrum Leisure Centre on Stoke Park. The main line station is also within walking distance via the High Street and over the river and provides a regular commuter service to Waterloo in 38 minutes and under. Many of Guildford's most popular schools are only a short walk away, including Pewley Down Infant School, Holy Trinity Junior School and The Royal Grammar School in the High Street.

Northdowns Rise is a brand new four storey family house of approximately 6,000 sq ft which provides practical and up to date modern living, with integrated state of the art technology. The central hallway spans all four floors with a large lantern light at the top flooding light down through all floors and forms a very impressive first impression of the accommodation. There are concrete floors and under floor heating throughout with copper pipe work and a sophisticated heat recovery system which extracts the moisture and stale air from the house and replaces it with clean fresh air without any heat loss. The internal doors and staircases are in walnut and there are sash windows throughout. The light and airy accommodation spans four floors and provides everything that a modern family could wish for. The lower ground floor provides excellent recreation areas with a long hallway with cloakroom, a gym with en suite shower room, and a large cinema room with adjoining bar area. There is also a large double garage and bin store at this level and a feature walnut staircase leads up the reception hall with cloakroom, drawing room and stunning kitchen which is fitted with contemporary German manufactured units. This leads into a dining area and sitting area at the front of the house with double doors to the south facing patio form which the stunning views can be enjoyed. There are also wide areas of bi fold doors leading to the rear garden and a separate family room and boot room also off this area. These combined areas form the heart of the house and provide a very large area for social gatherings, both formal and informal. The first floor benefits further still from the stunning views to the south and comprises four bedroom suites, all with fitted wardrobes, with the principal suite incorporating a dressing room and feature bathroom. The second floor comprises a fifth bedroom suite and two further bedrooms, one of which could be used as a study, and a sixth bathroom.

The gardens have been carefully and beautifully designed and landscaped by Kevin Murphy, an award winning registered member of the Society of Garden Designers, and provide a stunning setting with electric gates leading to a parking forecourt with illuminated steps up to the front door. Pathways either side of the house lead to the rear garden where there are terraces, a water feature, seating areas, planting and an area of artificial grass. The whole area has been carefully planted with specimen shrubs and trees.
