A splendid detached family home offering good extension potential

Built circa 1927, 6 Fairway lies on a quiet and peaceful private road close to the village of Merrow. Through the inner porch, the reception hall sits at the heart of this traditional family home, opening into the large dual aspect sitting room with its open fireplace, and French windows continuing the living space onto a sheltered terrace overlooking the south facing front garden. The large kitchen and breakfast room includes utility space. There are French windows overlooking the sheltered rear terrace. To the front of the house a separate dining room, with views across the garden through large bay windows, provides an ideal setting for formal dining and entertaining. Rising to the first floor the large dual aspect master bedroom includes walk-in storage and a private en suite bathroom. Three further bedrooms of varying sizes and a family bathroom provide flexible accommodation to suit a range of family and guest needs.

Outside

At the top of the driveway a 5 bar wooden gate opens on to a wide gravel driveway leading down to the front of the house where there is amply off road parking as well as an integral and a detached garage. The gardens are immaculate with fruit trees bordering the drive, the formal gardens to the front edged with yew and copper beech hedging. A smaller paved area with rose bushes and yew hedging forms an attractive welcome to this traditional tile-hung detached house. The lawns continue around the side of the house, opening into the rear garden to provide a tranquil setting for relaxing and entertaining. Behind the detached garage is a small vegetable garden.

Situation

This attractive detached house sits within a short walking distance of the centre of Merrow with its array of local shops, a post office, an M&S food store, and a bank. A more extensive range of recreational and cultural amenities are on offer a few miles away in the centre of Guilford including the Odeon cinema complex, Yvonne Arnaud, Electric and G Live Theatres, coffee shops, restaurants, and high street stores. The surrounding Surrey Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), is ideal for walking, cycling and riding. There is easy access to the Downs via a pathway at the top of the road. Leisure amenities include the Surrey Sports Park, Spectrum Sports Centre, a wide range of local golf and tennis clubs, including the nearby popular Merrow Lawn Tennis Club, The Guildford Golf Course to be found on the nearby Merrow Downs and The Clandon Centre which adjoins The Merrow Cricket Ground. There are also good state schools, including Merrow C of E Infant School, George Abbott and St Peter’s Catholic School, all within half a mile. The Royal Grammar School, Guildford High School and Tormead School are outstanding. The village of Merrow, situated on the eastern edge of Guildford at the edge of the North Downs has excellent transport links providing easy access to the A3, A25 and M25 routes across the south east and the national motorway network, and mainline rail services into Central London in about half an hour. A further rail service from nearby Clandon to Waterloo is also available.
