New to the market: The Croft, Shalford

Here at Chantries, we’ve always thought September makes a better New Year than January; it’s the start of the academic year, when everyone returns to work after their summer holiday, refreshed and motivated (rather than exhausted and bloated post-Christmas).

So what better time to get started on a renovation project? Launching onSaturday, 17th September, The Croft is a perfect project to get your teeth into this Autumn.

This substantial eight-bedroom Victorian home, which requires complete modernisation, is situated n the quintessential village of Shalford, Guildford.

Providing over 5,000 sq ft of living space across three floors, the home features four, grand reception rooms as well as a conservatory and a quirky internal courtyard. There is also a cellar, workshop, store rooms and a bar, as well as a separate one-bedroom coach house, which could provide guest or au pair accommodation.

Despite its dated décor, the home is spacious and flooded with light thanks to extensive glazing. Period features including ornate fireplaces, sash windows and decorative cornicing, give the home its distinctive character, while a stunning, original turning staircase with large picture window creates an immediate sense of grandeur.

Externally, The Croft reflects the Arts and Crafts style so prominent in this popular area of Surrey and is set within 2.2 acres of lucious green lawns and pretty woodland – ensuring the new owner plenty of privacy.

Situated just a 10-minute walk from Shalford’s amenities, including a rail station, The Croft is perfectly-placed to enjoy village lifestyle, while being close to Guildford’s vibrant town centre.

On the market for £1,750,000, The Croft certainly has a lot of potential and, subject to the relevant consents, there is considerable scope to substantially remodel the existing layout, if so desired.

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.
