Old Westwick is a substantial and attractive Edwardian house of great charm and character, with pebbledash and tile-hung elevations under a plain tiled roof. The property is well-presented and, retaining many original features, offers a real taste of Edwardian space and style together with all of the amenities required for modern family living. Throughout the house, period style features include leaded windows, fireplaces in many rooms, moulded picture rails, dados and attractively detailed cornices. Double doors, with leaded and stained glass panels, open into a spacious reception hall from which a well-lit and attractive staircase rises to the galleried landing. The two principal reception rooms off the reception hall both benefit from stylish fireplaces and bay windows offering southerly garden views. The back hall, with a second staircase, leads to the family room, generous dining room and the adjacent kitchen.
The extensive first floor accommodation includes a spacious master suite, with dressing room and a beautifully appointed bath and shower room, a second suite, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. There are three bedrooms and a further bathroom on the second floor. The principal bedrooms on both floors enjoy distant views to Chantry Woods and beyond.
Gardens and Grounds
The gardens are a particular feature of this property having been imaginatively and attractively laid out and beautifully maintained. Old Westwick is approached over a long drive flanked by lawn and a variety of fruit trees. The drive continues past a spacious parking area to arrive at the front of the house. The landscaped grounds have been arranged into several connected areas. Steps from the front door lead down between terraced and attractively planted shrub and flower borders to a level lawn, with a paved barbecue and dining area and adjoining summerhouse. From here, a path leads through a pergola with grape vines to the vegetable garden, with its raised beds, greenhouse and workshop.
To the west of the house, an attractively secluded patio, accessed from the breakfast room, provides the ideal situation for a quiet morning coffee. Steps from here lead up to a further sitting area and thence via a path to the main car parking area. Behind the house, there is a sheltered courtyard, with steps leading up to another attractive sitting or dining area under the shade of a mature yew tree. An extensive irrigation system is installed. The property has secondary vehicular and pedestrian access to Warwicks Bench that provides a short and direct route to Guildford High Street.
