Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Reduced for a quick sale with complete chain. This enchanting Grade II listed residence is steeped in history and believed to date from the late 15th Century known as a Medieval Hall House. The property has been lovingly cared for and retains its charm and character but also benefits from sympathetic updates and alterations over the years with different owners. More recently the property has been subject to a complete renovation programme to bring it up to the latest standards including a newly fitted boiler, eco radiators and upgraded wiring.

Esgairs is a very special house indeed and is well known locally. Positioned centrally in the heart of Horsell Village, it is within walking distance of local amenities, schools and Woking Town Centre and its Mainline Station.

On the first floor, four double bedrooms and family bathroom and on the second floor there is a fifth bedroom and playroom.

A particular feature of the property is the outside space with the garden surrounding the property and further extending to a particularly large walled garden at the rear mainly laid to lawn with various outbuildings.

The outbuildings include a detached pitched roof garage and a substantial two storey stable building which has listed planning permission for conversion into secondary/annex accommodation.
