Built in 1912, having been designed by distinguished London architects Forsyth and Maule, Monkswood is a superb example of an extremely well-presented country home, offering scope for incoming purchasers to further add to this exceptionally well maintained property. Situated in a private road no-through road in Hurtmore, on the outskirts of Godalming, the property enjoys excellent transport links by both road and rail.Approached via a gated driveway, the property sits elegantly in immaculately manicured grounds and gardens of 5.7 acres originally designed by Gertrude Jekyll. The house itself spans over 5,500 sqft and enjoys well-proportioned accommodation over three floors. From the reception hall the principal rooms are accessed; all of which are light rooms that enjoy aspects over the superb gardens – a sun room added in recent times is a remarkable space to host alfresco entertainment. To the first and second floors, Monkswood is currently arranged with eight double bedrooms, three bathrooms and a shower room; lending itself well to reconfiguration should an incoming purchaser so wish.The accommodation extends to a large triple garage and workshop with a snooker room on the first floor.GROUNDS & GARDENSOriginally designed by renowned British horticulturalist and garden designer Gertrude Jekyll, the grounds and gardens of approximately 5.7 acres are of particular note. They have been expertly tended to in order to provide a varied array of mature and established borders, an ornamental water feature and productive kitchen garden. In addition, the grounds boast a heated outdoor swimming pool with pool house and tarmacadam tennis court.LOCATIONMonkswood enjoys a private setting towards the end of a private no-through-road in Hurtmore, on the outskirts of Godalming town. Godalming town centre is approximately two miles distant and provides mainline rail links to London Waterloo.
