Full property description

  • Enjoying secluded gated grounds of around 2.5 acres 'Gateway House' is a very special and unique home. Having been designed by the renowned architect Eric Ambrose the property is simply a fantastic example of contemporary living. From the intriguing differentials in the external elevations to the impressive flowing receptions flooded with natural light and finished with individually commissioned items. This is arguably one of the finest in its pedigree and without a viewing it's hard to see just how bespoke this house is.

    With a generous 4000 sq ft of accommodation the house itself is well presented throughout and offers a bright and flexible living space. The spacious entrance hall sets the tone with floor to ceiling windows and a contemporary turning glass staircase, a cosy triple aspect sitting room with original fireplace is located on the left hand side of the building.
    Across the hall is the heart of the home, a fantastic open plan family/kitchen area that extends to 33ft in length. There is ample space for sitting and dining areas along with a modern kitchen that incorporates a range of mostly base level units, space for large appliances and a central island that is perfect for entertaining.
    Sliding doors provide access to the garden and deck area with brick built pizza oven. There is a range of fitted cupboards leading to the utility room and space for multiple appliances. There is a further reception room located on the ground floor that has historically been used as a study but could suit a number of needs.

    The first floor also offers plenty of flexibility with six bedrooms and three bathrooms. The master suite has a generous bedroom space with separate dressing room and spacious four piece en-suite bathroom, bedroom two is also en-suite. A rear balcony runs across the rear of the property and access can be gained from bedrooms 3, 4 and 5.

    Situated in the middle of the plot the property makes full use of the 2.5 acres with mature gardens mostly laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees and hedging. There is a full size tennis court which has recently been re-laid, a double garage and storage area.
    The country setting provides an exceptional commute to London. Woking's mainline railway station offers a 26 min fast train into London Waterloo and is reachable within 10 minutes. Brookwood station is within a 3-4 minute drive and is the next stop from Wokings fast train. Worplesdon also has its own mainline station, bakery, hotel, public house and Church, and lies between Guildford and Woking. Both towns have excellent shopping, recreational and educational facilities. The A3 connects with the M25 at Junction 10 (Wisley), giving easy access to Heathrow and Gatwick Airports.

    There is a wide choice of schooling in the area, including Greenfield, Rydes Hill Preparatory, Tormead, Royal Grammar School, Guildford High, Guildford County, Lanesborough, Charterhouse and Aldro, to name but a few. Recreational opportunities include golf at several local clubs, including Worplesdon, Woking and West Hill, flying at Fairoaks aerodrome and a variety of activities at the Guildford Spectrum Leisure Centre. In addition, the surrounding countryside, including the North Downs and the Surrey Hills, offers wonderful walking and cycling. For the riding enthusiast, Bridley Equestrian Centre is situated on a 300 acre estate, with superb hacking on the doorstep, and many facilities.

    Worplesdon Station: circa 1.6 miles, A3: circa 2 miles, Woking Station: circa 3.9 miles, Guildford Station: circa 4.7 miles, Heathrow: circa 17.5 miles, Central London: circa 28 miles.
