About this property

  • Built in 1880, 4 Austen Road enjoys a highly desirable location on one of Guildford's most popular residential roads. The well regarded High Street is less than 0.5 mile away and the house enjoys a fantastic elevated position.

    The current owners have tastefully modernised the property during their thirteen year ownership and is presented to a very high standard.

    The entrance hall opens into a spacious and light reception room with parquet flooring and a large under stairs storage cupboard, this flows into the sitting room with bay windows, high ceilings and an open fireplace. A versatile study can be found to the rear.

    The kitchen forms part of the rear extension and has been designed in a contemporary style with built-in Neff appliances, the sloped ceiling has triple Velux windows and fills the room with natural light. There is a fabulous dining area and bi fold doors open on to the terrace. A useful utility room is situated in the converted cellar.

    On the first floor are three double bedrooms and a shower room. Two additional bedrooms and a large bathroom can be found on the second floor.

    Outside, the gardens are private with a number of trees and mature shrubs. There is a lovely patio and a paved barbeque area, these spaces lend themselves to entertaining guests and enjoying the summer weather. A large border filled with flowers runs the length of the garden and provides exceptional colours throughout the seasons.

    At the end of the garden is a gate which gives access to Warren Road.
