Star Courier (Surrey & Hants) - - FRONT PAGE -

Built in around 1890, at about the same time that elec­tric­ity first came to Guild­ford, this im­pos­ing Vic­to­rian villa has been im­pec­ca­bly re­stored and en­hanced with ev­ery 21st cen­tury com­fort. Brae­mar in Syd­ney Road, just half a mile from Guild­ford High Street, has been stripped back and re­fur­bished from top to bot­tom to in­clude state- ofart modern fea­tures within its elegant Vic­to­rian shell.

It has been re- plumbed and re wired with top of the range ac­ces­sories with some un­der­floor heat­ing and pe­riod- style ra­di­a­tors en­hanc­ing the elegant re­cep­tion ar­eas.

All the win­dows have been re­placed with dou­ble glazed sash units and the bath­rooms are of the high­est qual­ity There is a very im­pres­sive en­trance area with stun­ning wide stone il­lu­mi­nated steps lead­ing up to the front door and a de­light­ful re­cep­tion hall with en­gi­neered oak floor­ing and beau­ti­ful orig­i­nal stair­case.

The lower ground floor kitchen area is a lovely room fit­ted with a hand painted pe­riod- style kitchen with break­fast bar and din­ing/ seat­ing area with doors to the gar­den.

On this level there is also a fur­ther re­cep­tion room which could be suit­able for a va­ri­ety of uses, in­clud­ing a for­mal din­ing room, cinema room or even as an au pair’s room. There is also a util­ity room and shower room on this level.

The ground floor pro­vides a stun­ning first im­pres­sion of the ele­gance of this lovely Vic­to­rian home. The draw­ing room at the rear over­looks the sunny gar­den and has a Juliet bal­cony and dou­ble doors with steps down to the gar­den.

There is also an­other large re­cep­tion room on this level which, like the room be­low, could also be utilised in many ways.

The large prin­ci­pal bed­room suite lies on the first floor with a dress­ing room, en- suite bath­room and ad­join­ing small bed­room, which could be a nurs­ery. There is also an­other large bed­room suite on this level.

There are lovely views from the sec- ond floor in all di­rec­tions and over the town and here there are three bed­rooms, two with en- suites, and a fam­ily bath­room.

There is a large boarded loft that spans the width of the house, al­ready fit­ted with a Velux win­dow, power and drainage and there­fore could be eas­ily con­verted into fur­ther liv­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion if re­quired, sub­ject to the usual con­sents.

Out­side there is a lovely south- west fac­ing rear gar­den with off street park­ing and a fine pil­lared front wall and en­trance.

The rear gar­den ex­tends to ap­prox­i­mately 100ft in length and is mainly lawn with ma­ture trees lin­ing the bound­aries.

In all, the gar­den ex­tends to ap­prox­i­mately 0.2 acres.

Brae­mar is for sale with joint agents Grant­ley ( 01483 407620) and Knight Frank ( 01483 565171).
