Property Description

Full description

Description
Highclere is one of the original prestigious houses built by WG Tarrant in 1925 on a magnificent site with a long driveway and rear gardens sloping gently down to the golf course at the rear. The house itself has well proportioned and laid out accommodation with all the principle receptions and bedrooms across the southerly side of the house with views to the golf course. The house will be suitable for modernisation and extension or a complete redevelopment
of the property with a new home.

The property is approached over a long gravel driveway creating an impressive arrival at the front door. Across the rear of the property is a large expanse of terrace with steps leading down onto the rear lawns which are terraced, broken and interspersed with well stocked flower and shrubbery beds and a central pond. The boundaries are well enclosed with high perimeters of Laurel, Rhododendrons and other mature specimen trees providing a great deal of privacy from adjoining properties. The whole amounts to approximately 3 acres, faces south east to the rear and is quite an outstanding feature of the property.

Situation
Highclere is superbly situated within the Wentworth Estate on East Drive with far reaching views across the 14th of the East Course to the rear. The Wentworth Golf Club and the picturesque shopping parades of Virginia Water, with its excellent shops for day to day needs, restaurants and mainline railway station with a fast service of trains to Waterloo in 42 minutes. Both the clubhouse and the village are within easy walking distance. For the weekly household shop there is an excellent Waitrose in Sunningdale and for more extensive shopping facilities, the towns of Windsor, Guildford and Kingston are all close at hand. Junction 13 of the M25 is just 3.5 miles away giving access to London, Heathrow and the motorway network. Other than the world renowned Wentworth Club, country clubs abound the area such as Foxhills, Queenwood, Sunningdale and the Royal Berkshire. Delightful walks can be enjoyed around Virginia Water Lake which leads up to the Polo at Smiths Lawn, adjacent to Savill Gardens and Windsor Great Park beyond for riding. The area is also very well catered for by a huge choice of private prep schools, as well as two international schools, ACS in Egham and TAS IS in Thorpe. Golf course frontage.
