    About this property

    • Tanglewood is a beautiful, well-appointed period home in a sought-after residential area in Guildford, overlooking Merrow Common. The property is Grade II listed, and originally dates from the late 16th / early 17th century. The property is being offered with no onward chain.

      Tanglewood has been in the same family ownership for the last 61 years, and boasts excellent living accommodation extending over 2,000 sq ft, and has a number of retained character features including exposed beams, fireplaces and parquet flooring. It offers a wonderful opportunity for a new owner to update and modernise this much loved home.

      Leading off from the entrance hall is the sitting room, measuring 22.6 ft x 13.5 ft, with large dual aspect windows overlooking the garden, also a beamed ceiling, brick fireplace and two useful cupboards.

      The dining room, measuring 14.2 ft x 13.3 ft, is also accessed from the hall and has a beamed ceiling, parquet floor, brick fireplace and a large concealed cupboard fronted with a shelved glass display cabinet. The kitchen has a pleasant outlook over the back garden, and has a useful boot room attached.

      There are five good sized bedrooms upstairs, four of which have exposed beams. Three of the bedrooms have dual aspect windows. The family bathroom, the two separate cloakrooms, and the shower room are all located on the ground floor.

      The house is set back from the road and sits well within generous grounds that measure approximately 0.42 acre. A notable feature of the property are the beautiful mature gardens to the front and rear, with well-stocked flower beds and an exceptional selection of specimen trees providing a fabulous array of colour throughout the seasons, offering a green and private space, a unique feature for this location.

      There is off street parking with a detached garage block, comprising two separate bays.
