Built to an extremely high standard for the Lang family in 1910 on one of the original plots surrounding the then new Worplesdon Golf Club. The house was the first choice of King Edward VIII when he abdicated but it was reported that Mrs Lang would "not have that woman in this house". The house has many stunning features such as the original entrance, stone mullion windows, stained glass floor to ceiling window, 25 sq m Amdega Orangery and magnificent views across the grounds and golf course.

Camellia House is the central portion of this imposing mansion providing variable living accommodation, the interior boasts some exquisite furniture such as the Charles York Bespoke personalised kitchen units and the
Roche Bobois bookcase units in the study.

A particular feature of the property is the impressive Amdega Orangery, providing underfloor heating and air conditioning, with double doors leading out to the garden. The thoroughfares of the house are lined with marble
decor and wooden panelling, enabling its multiple secret doorways. Other features include the William Holland copper bath and the decorative cornice moulding that lines a majority of the rooms.

Upstairs provides four very good sized double bedrooms, the principal offering a fabulous floor to ceiling stained glass window overlooking the immaculate garden and golf course.

Camellia House is situated in the charming location of Worplesdon, which boasts close proximity to both Worplesdon Hill, Brookwood and the scenic village of Pirbright. The surrounding countryside includes woodland, heathland and areas of green open space, including Pirbright Common, criss-crossed with streams and brooks. Worplesdon and Brookwood provide local shops, country pubs and restaurants with the peaceful village of Pirbright boasting the popular White Hart country pub situated by the green.

Woking is less than four miles to the east and is a vibrant cosmopolitan town with a wealth of history. The town offers a wide range of shops, restaurants and recreational facilities which include, The New Victoria Theatre, The Ambassadors Cinema Complex, Woking Leisure Centre and The Light Box Arts Centre.

The historic town centre of Guildford is about five miles to the south and has a wide range of shops, restaurants and recreational and sporting facilities including G Live, The Electric Theatre, The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Surrey Sports Park and The Spectrum Leisure Centre. The surrounding picturesque countryside is ideal for walking, cycling and riding. Worplesdon Golf Club sits to the to the rear of Camellia House with West Hill, Woking, and Chobham Golf Courses all close by. Pirbright Tennis Club is nearby with the renowned Woking Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club conveniently located in Hook Heath. Several equestrian facilities are available and include the Stanley Hill Equestrian Centre.

The Pirbright area is renowned for its excellent range of both state and independent schools and include; Pirbright Village Primary School, Winston Churchill School, Hoe Bridge School, Gordons, The Royal Grammar School, Guildford High and Tormead.

The approach to the house is nested within the trees and opens up to a gravel drive with a double garage (with studio above) and ample off street parking. A small pond and a gothic arcade are some of the features that highlight the sheltered driveway. To the rear of the house, through the Orangery, sits a patio, equipped with a hot tub and space for al-fresco dining. Beyond lies an immaculate, private garden with undulating flowerbeds stretching out towards the golf course. On the far side of the lawn is a pond which couples up to a quaint summer house, in the shade of a glorious feather beech tree.
