Ab Fab Homes


This week Leicester Square played host to a roll call of famous faces including Kate Moss, Stella McCartney and Jourdan Dunn, who attended the Absolutely Fabulous Movie premiere - one of the glitziest film openings of the year.


The movie hit cinemas today, so in line with this, here is a roundup of new to the market properties in an ‘Ab Fab’ area of Guildford… Abbotswood, Darling!


Situated just a mile from Guildford’s vibrant Town Centre, Abbottswood is perfectly placed for families; many of the area’s premier schools are nearby, including The Royal Grammar School, The High School for Girls, Lanesborough, Tormead and George Abbot. The Spectrum Sports Centre and Stoke Park are also a short walk away.


The Gate House – a seven-bedroom, Arts and Crafts house – is on the market here with a guide price of £2,495,000. Despite having undergone refurbishment, many of the original character features still remain, such as oak panelling, feature fireplaces and leaded light windows. What’s more, there is a self-contained, ground floor annexe – perfect for boomerang kids – as well as a large games/cinema room.


Tucked away on a tree-lined private estate in Abbotswood is Orchard Rise – another beautiful Arts and Crafts’ house – on the market with a guide price of £1,950,000. At the heart of this six-bedroom home is a spacious drawing room complete with a magnificent open fireplace.  


Outside, the gardens have been landscaped with mature planting and trees to provide privacy and the ideal space for relaxation and entertaining. Offering the ultimate in luxury, views across the glorious gardens can be enjoyed from a private, south westerly facing sun terrace off the master bedroom suite.

Price Reductions are a current market reality...

Like many buyers, I log onto Rightmove each morning to find out what’s happened in Guildford’s ever-changing property market over the last 24 hours: which houses have gone under offer and what new instructions have been added. However, as we edge into autumn, we’re seeing a significant rise in the number of properties marked Reduced Today and this is something we need to address. While this isn’t a new phenomenon - even in a busy market there’s always been a smattering of them - the post-Brexit landscape means they are now outweighing new instructions marked Added Today on a daily basis.
