Brighton Road, Godalming
A handsome 1930s home in a desirable location within Godalming town. Occupying an enviable elevated position, this imposing home benefits from notably well-proportioned space, a generous garden and off-street driveway parking.
This is a beautifully presented detached family home in the heart of Godalming town. The property has been lovingly maintained and modernised over the years, retaining huge amounts of character and benefitting from further potential for extension and investment (STPP). The property was re roofed within the last 10 years and benefits from solar thermal panels and double glazing, dramatically improving the performance of this home.
The home offers bright, well-proportioned accommodation with wonderful features that include working fires and high ceilings. Having been cleverly extended, the property provides truly practical living space with multiple reception rooms and bedrooms, all of which benefit from a wonderful mix of contemporary convenience and period charm.
On the first floor there are four generously sized double bedrooms, a family bathroom with bath and separate shower and an ensuite shower room to the master bedroom. The master suite has a beautiful, vaulted ceiling and a charming Juliet balcony overlooking the gardens.
The gardens are generous and have been cleverly designed to offer multiple seating, entertaining and lawn areas to be enjoyed. The garden is beautifully private, and a planting programme has been well thought out to deliver interest all year round, with mature plants and shrubs adding detail to the space and mature trees on the fringes. There is a large workshop attached at the side of the property that works well as a studio or potentially an office space. At the front of the property there is a driveway parking area for several cars as well as gated access to a covered parking area.
Firbank occupies an attractive elevated plot on this highly desirable road in Godalming. This charming market town provides a good range of amenities, including supermarkets, banks, bars and restaurants, in addition to a mainline station which offers a fast and frequent service to London Waterloo, with journey times from about 46 minutes. A more extensive range of shopping, leisure and cultural amenities is available at Guildford.
There is a wide choice of both state and private schools in the area, including St Edmunds, Busbridge School and Godalming College which are all in close proximity. Road communications are excellent, with easy access to the A3 for London and the south, as well as the M25 for the airports and national motorway network. Just a road away (0.2 miles) is the Holloway Hill recreation ground which is a fantastic multi use facility with playing fields, Pavilion, play park and carpark. This is a great community asset and serves many people and clubs whether it is for formal sporting activity, boot camps or more informal use as an open space. Further recreational opportunities in the area include well-equipped sports centres at both Godalming and Guildford and country sports at several local venues. In addition, the surrounding countryside offers excellent opportunities for walking, cycling and riding.
