'The Area View' - Guildford is a large town in Surrey, England, 27 miles (43 km) southwest of London on the A3 trunk road midway between the capital and Portsmouth. It is steeped in history with its Saxon roots, it was home to an early English Royal Mint By AD 978 and many historians attribute its location to the existence of a gap in the North Downs where the River Wey was forded by the Harrow Way. The building of the Wey Navigation and the Basingstoke Canal in the 17th and 18th centuries, respectively, connected Guildford to a network of waterways that aided its prosperity.
This thriving market town offers an excellent shopping experience through its cobbled high street, with many well-known high street brands, as well as bespoke boutiques, plenty of coffee shops and restaurants to choose for anyones taste buds and holds a general street market every Friday & Saturday, with a local farmers market being held the 1st Tuesday every month.
It's a fantastic place to live to bring up a family as there are some outstanding Private and State schools within the local area and is great for the commuter as you can be in London Waterloo in under 40 minutes.
'The Agents View' - "If you are looking for a period property within the heart of one of the most expensive places to live outside of London, then this Victorian Semi-detached family home is for you. This property offers loads of original period features throughout, but has been updated with all mod-cons you could need.
I love the re-fitted kitchen across the back of the property with its French doors opening onto a lovely raised patio area, with steps leading door to a beautiful private rear garden. I could imagine sitting on the patio in the evening sun with a glass of wine having a nice relaxing evening."
'The Sellers View' - "We bought the property as we fell in love with all the period features of the property, it's location to Guildford Town Centre and the train station. It's a great sized property located in a sought after road, great for schools and for walks in the nearby countryside."
