To the front of the property you will immediately notice that there is ample driveway parking for up to four vehicles. There is also a low maintenance front garden with well thought out planting to include an established rose tunnel and a bed of lavender, which provide an all-round pleasant treat for the senses. There is a gate to the left-hand boundary for access to the rear of the dwelling.
On entry you are immediately greeted with an impressive entrance area, used as a library-come snug by our client. Exposed oak beams, beautiful lath and plaster ceilings, and a feature fireplace give a flavour of what is yet to come. To the right-hand side of the ground floor is the main reception room which benefits from dual aspect windows to both the front and rear allowing plenty of natural light to enter the room throughout the day. There is also a recessed snug area that is currently utilised as a study workspace. Perhaps the main feature of this room is the splendid open-hearth fireplace with exposed brick perfectly framing an ivory enamel multi-fuel stove. From the library, there is an internal hallway which provides access through to a dining room, kitchen, downstairs cloakroom, built in storage cupboard and door for access to the side of the house. The dining room is conveniently positioned opposite the kitchen making it an excellent space for entertaining or dining with family. Once again, the character continues with an exposed brick feature fireplace.
The kitchen has been sympathetically fitted with a range of eye and base level shaker style units. There are integrated appliances to include a dishwasher, stainless steel double oven and a five-ring gas hob with extractor above. There is a window to the rear aspect with views that extend down the garden, the sill being designed with dual purpose to also serve as a breakfast bar. There is a large "Belfast Sink" with mixer tap inset to the worktop and tiled flooring to match the hallway.
Upstairs, there is an expansive central landing area with a vaulted beamed ceiling which simply must be witnessed first-hand to appreciate. The landing at 12'4 x 11' could have several uses as a workspace, play area, reading room or first floor lounge. The flooring his been laid with oak boards secured with handmade nails. The oak flooring extends through to bedroom three and to the bathroom.
Unusually, Haeseles offers four double bedrooms, which is almost unheard of for homes in this price bracket. The master bedroom is positioned to the front of the house and measures an impressive 12'2 x 11'3 with a feature fireplace inset into a chimney breast giving a grand feel. The second bedroom, with its lovely views overlooking the rear garden, has the addition of bespoke built in wardrobes and its own sink with mixer tap. Bedroom three, having been recently refurbished is a sight to behold with a vaulted ceiling, oak beam enclosed mezzanine, lath and plaster ceiling, a wattle and daub feature wall is complimented with contrasting feature wallpaper. The fourth bedroom, again a double, occupies the remaining rear quarter of the first floor. This lovely room features a rear aspect window and a skylight. Like bedroom two, it also benefits from its own sink with mixer tap.
The bathroom, having been recently refurbished, is another delightful feature of this residence. The mix of oak flooring with grey imported marble oozes quality and sophistication. Again, here you get a feeling of space with a beamed vaulted ceiling. A claw foot roll top bath with rain shower above and freestanding mixer tap and telephone style shower attachment, traditional "Burlington Style" low level WC, Savoy style heated towel rail and traditional sink finish off this boutique bathroom.
To the rear of the property is a large brick built outbuilding. Within the building is a utility room with power, light, and drainage as you would expect. The main element of the building is a 23' studio, again with power, light, water, and drainage. The Studio could serve many functions with its use to be determined by the lucky buyer of this home. Formerly, it has been used by our client as both an artist's studio and as lodging accommodation. The south facing rear garden measures approximately 100' in length and has been landscaped into zoned seating and planting areas with the rear portion of the garden having been sectioned off for use in the past for growing fruit and vegetables.
Josephs Road sits equidistant from the vibrancy of Guildford with its wide range of restaurants and boutiques; and the open green spaces of Stoke Park. The area is a flourishing hub for culture, creativity and technology. Boasting historic places to visit, riverside walks, picturesque gardens and acres of green space, there is plenty to enjoy in Guildford and its surrounding villages. If it's history and culture you're after, Guildford's cathedral is well worth a visit as well as the ancient castle with its roof-top viewing platform that offers panoramic views over the town and surrounding countryside.
Guildford is also highly regarded for its outstanding choice of schools across both the state and private sectors. The renowned Royal Grammar School and Guildford High School are both within walking distance.
