Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated within The Hockering - an exclusive gated private estate within walking distance of Woking town and main line station. This is a substantial and attractive detached house, built by W.G. Tarrant approximately 100 years ago, offering 5455 sq ft of accommodation and featuring about 1.8 acres of mature and very well secluded grounds. The property has been sympathetically renovated to maintain the character of this charming home and features large accommodation to include 7 double bedrooms, with 3 bathrooms, over three floors. Downstairs there is a large and bright drawing room perfectly orientated to enjoy sun throughout the day, large dining room, family room and study, in addition to the 31' kitchen/breakfast room with large utility room, a downstairs cloakroom and a garden cloakroom. Outside, the beautifully landscaped gardens offer complete seclusion and privacy and can be enjoyed by walking the path which surrounds the rear garden while there are also breathtaking views from the large elevated terrace. To the front there is capacious off-street parking as well as a double width garage, capable of accommodating three cars. Combining the traditional with the modern, a particular feature is the Cat 5 cabling throughout giving high speed wired internet access to all the main rooms and internal telephone communication.
The Hockering was originally built by the highly respected local builder W.G. Tarrant, who later went on to build St George's Hill in Weybridge. The estate remains the most exclusive area of Woking and its attractions include its quietness coupled with its close proximity to the town's mainline station (Waterloo from 27 minutes) and the town centre lying just to the other side. Within the centre there are restaurants, theatres, cinema screens and a comprehensive range of shops. A regular coach service offers journey times of about half an hour between the railway station and Heathrow Airport.
