Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Tarrens is a stunning period home of outstanding character with origins that are believed to date back to 1547. The house has been extended in its history but the bulk of the property has many of the interesting and quirky features that one would hope to find in a home of this vintage including heavily beamed ceilings and beautiful inglenook fireplaces, all of which very much add to the pleasure of the house as a whole. As a result of being extended, the house also has a certain degree of versatility to the way in which the accommodation can be used, depending upon the needs of the incoming buyer and certainly has the potential for one or more of the ground floor rooms to be used as bedrooms, if preferred or equally, as very attractive living rooms.

On the ground floor, a welcoming reception hall leads to the two main living rooms and immediately gives a flavour of the character which lies beyond. The sitting room is a particularly attractive, front to back room which has a superb inglenook fireplace that creates a fabulous focal point for the room. To one end, there are double opening doors which lead out onto the terrace and garden, all of which makes this an enormously attractive main living space for the house. The dining room next door has a heavily beamed ceiling and likewise a beautiful inglenook fireplace as well as windows that look out over the garden and a turning staircase which rises to the first floor. A small lobby leads from the dining room into the kitchen which has recently been refitted with a range of modern units and various integrated appliances and has a bright double aspect towards the front of the house. From the dining room, a notably light and airy hallway runs along the side of the house where at the end, there are two further rooms which could be used as very attractive living rooms, the far one particularly as it has a lovely outlook over the garden and doors that lead out onto the same. Facing the front of the house, there is a further room on the ground floor which would make an ideal bedroom as it has its own en-suite wet room.

Upstairs, the bedrooms are equally interesting with the master being a very light double aspect room which overlooks the pretty front and rear gardens. The remaining two bedrooms on this floor are comfortable doubles, both overlooking the front while at the end of the landing, there is a well proportioned family bathroom.

Garden & Exterior
From Pirbright Green, a long driveway leads down to a 5-bar gate which gives way to a large driveway that allows for numerous cars to be parked off the road. To one side, there is a detached garage, one corner of which has been taken to create a large garden storage area. At the front of the house, there is a paved pathway that leads around to the front door while the front garden is principally laid to lawn and extremely well enclosed on all sides by mature trees and hedging creating a wonderful sense of privacy. The rear garden is undoubtedly part of the attraction of the house not only as it is likewise hugely private and secluded but also as it is orientated to take advantage of the sun through the larger part of the day and into the evening.
The setting of the house is undoubtedly part of what makes it such an attractive proposition, tucked away at the end of a long driveway and yet at the same time, in the heart of Pirbright village. The village has a small range of shops, restaurants and pubs, most of which are close to the central green and duckpond which is no more than just a short stroll from the house. For those occasions when you have need of something more comprehensive however, Woking town centre has been the subject of huge investment in recent years and now has a busy and contemporary feel to it with an interesting array of bars, cafes and restaurants as well as the New Victoria theatre and the multi screen cinema in the Peacocks shopping centre. For those people requiring a commute into London, Brookwood station is within walking distance and Woking station is widely regarded as one of the very best stations in the south east and also has a very efficient coach service to Heathrow airport. Close by there are several excellent golf courses including West Hill, Worplesdon and Woking and a short drive in the other direction will take you into the beautiful county town of Guildford. In the surrounding area, there are miles of open countryside which makes for excellent walking and cycling, all of which makes this the perfect situation from which to take advantage of both the town, the village and the countryside.
