About this property

  • A spectacular hilltop home in the heart of Guildford. This Grade II listed property has five bedrooms, four reception rooms, superb views and is moments away from Guildford town centre.

    The house sits proudly on one of the highest points in Guildford and stands over four storeys tall. The house has many notable features and provides generous and light accommodation with enviable ceiling heights. The main feature of the house is the octagonal tower room with panoramic views across Guildford and the surrounding countryside, on a clear day reaching as far as central London. The gardens have been beautifully landscaped with areas that have been laid to lawn, water features and manicured beds. The property is steeped with history, dating back to 1818. This private house with its distinctive domed tower was once part of a vital military communications route. Semaphore messages, and the 1 o'clock time signal, were passed between London and Portsmouth along a chain of 13 stations, about 5 miles apart. Pewley received its signals from the tower on Chatley Heath which is one of the 3 remaining stations that still stand today.
