£2,250,000 Freehold

Gateway House is a large, detached, Mid Century Modern home set in grounds of around 2.5 acres. Originally designed by the renowned architect Eric Ambrose in conjunction with Scott Brownrigg Turner in the late 1950s, the 6-bedroom house has been carefully updated in recent years to provide a large, light and spacious home in a beautiful setting. The house is well connected, with easy access to the A3 and M3 and a choice of train stations that take you to London in approximately 30 mintues.

Outstanding features include spacious rooms with an open outlook over the gardens, a large contemporary kitchen/family room, with direct access onto the sun terrace, an impressive master bedroom suite with walk in wardrobe and a triple aspect living room. Outside, the gardens surround the property on all sides, with electric gates opening onto a driveway giving access to garaging. The large and private plot  was formerly a crocus farm and borders on open woodland. There is a detached double garage, tennis court and paved terrace as well as extensive lawns.

Ambrose was a prominent Modernist architect and author whose most successful period of work was the 1950s and 60s. A good friend of Stirling Moss, Ambrose consulted on the celebrated racing driver's famously cutting-edge Mayfair home. Scott Brownrigg Turner, who collaborated with Ambrose on the design of this house, are an internationally renowned architectural practice who are still working with great success to this day.

The house is on the edge of the sought-after village of Worplesdon, near Guildford. It is within easy reach of three local train stations: Woking, Waterloo and Worplesdon (journey times approximately 30 minutes). Schools in the area include Hoebridge, Gordons, Rydes Hill, Tormead, Guildford High School for Girls, Lanesborough and The Royal Grammar School.
