About this property

  • 23B Fort Road is a substantial modern family home with integrated state of the art technology measuring at over 6,000 sq ft and set over four floors, nestled towards the end of a no through road and within a short distance of the town centre. Built in 2018 along with the neighbouring property, the house itself affords noticeable build quality with detailed craftsmanship and impeccable attention to detail throughout. Set in elevated position, the property benefits from fantastic views towards the surrounding countryside.

    There are three large reception rooms and a study on the ground floor along with a 24 x 22 kitchen/breakfast room. Each of these rooms are wonderfully light, all enjoying a pleasant aspect with flowing accommodation and versatile in arrangement and use. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted German manufactured units, and has direct access to the gardens via bi fold doors and a boot room to the side. The floors are constructed with concrete and have under floor heating throughout with copper pipe work and a heat recovery system which extracts 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.

    To the first floor is the impressive principal bedroom suite with an adjoining dressing room and en suite bathroom. Across the hall are three further bedrooms, all of which are en suite. On the second floor are three additional bedrooms, the largest benefitting from a dressing room and en suite bathroom. There is also a family bathroom.

    The lower ground floor provides further superb accommodation with a long hallway leading to a cloakroom, 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.

    Outside, the house sits well within its plot and is accessed via fantastic electric gates leading to a large parking area with illuminated steps leading to the front door giving a real sense of arrival. The gardens were designed and landscaped by Kevin Murphy, an award winning registered member of the Society of Garden Designers, Pathways to the side of the house lead to the rear garden where there are terraces, a water feature, seating areas providing a private and tranquil setting framed in mature hedging and specimen trees.

I think this is one of the best contemporary builds in central Guildford. Such a wonderful position too, close to the town centre and to The Downs.
