Grantchester is a substantial family home that sits in one of the most highly regarded locations in the area in a delightful setting at the far end of the road. The house extends to some 3,200 square feet and has a notably flexible element to the accommodation which is currently laid out as two separate dwellings but could be converted back into one hugely versatile family home.
On the ground floor there are seven potential living rooms with two separate kitchens at each end of the house. The main sitting room is a delightfully light and airy space with doors out onto the sun terrace and garden. The other living rooms can be organised according to need but certainly provide very well indeed for the needs of a modern family set up.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and two bathrooms on one side of the house while on the other side are two further double rooms and a contemporary main bathroom.
Throughout the house there is a very welcoming feeling of light and space and while it currently works extremely well for two families that may wish to come together, with a little imagination it could also be converted back into one much larger single home.
Boughton Hall Avenue is situated near Ripley and is one of the most sought after private roads in the area. Just a short drive from the house Ripley village has a collection of interesting shops, cafes and restaurants as well as one of the largest village greens in England, also home to Ripley Cricket Club.
A short drive in the other direction will take you into the beautiful County Town of Guildford with its historic cobbled High Street that is lined by period buildings and which at the far end looks out over the green hills that surround the town. By contrast Woking is a far more contemporary centre that is undergoing something of a transformation currently and which has what is widely regarded as one of the best commuting stations that can be found in the South-East, with trains running into Waterloo in about 24 minutes. Both Woking and Guildford have excellent theatres and multiscreen cinemas while nearby there are various highly regarded golf clubs as well as health and fitness clubs. Also just a short drive through Clandon is the stunning scenery of Newlands Corner and on from here into the Surrey Hills - an area of outstanding natural beauty.
In Ripley there is access to the A3 which means a swift journey by car into London and also an easy route to the M25 for those times when you need Gatwick or Heathrow. There are excellent schools in and around the area along with wide open areas of countryside that make for excellent walking and cycling.
