Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Walter George Tarrant built homes synonymous with quality craftsmanship in the early 1900s, and to a design that has certainly stood the test of time. Heath Lodge was originally built as a gardener's cottage but has since been extensively enlarged to create significant principal room sizes that create a home perfectly suited to family living and entertainment. The exceptional accommodation includes four reception rooms, six bedrooms, four bath/shower rooms and a huge kitchen/family room.

A dramatically spacious reception hall, with fireplace, acts as a great prelude to the rest of the ground floor. The drawing room, to give an ideal of scale, more than comfortably affords a grand piano whilst your sofas will be arranged around a large feature fireplace with cream log burner. The kitchen/dining room is clearly the focal point of the house and undoubtedly a room where much of your time will be spent. The kitchen is fitted with a fine range of hand-built & bespoke light-oak cupboards and drawers & contrasting dresser unit. The centrepiece is a huge granite topped central island incorporating the sink unit and breakfast bar. Integral appliances that may be available by separate negotiation include a double width gas range cooker (with chrome splashback and extractor hood over) and American style fridge-freezer and fitted integral appliances include a dishwasher. Oak floorboards extend into the dining area where there is space for a large dining table and French doors onto the garden. The other three individual receptions include a beautifully presented sitting room, off the kitchen a large family room and separate games room. These rooms are of course multi-functional in their purpose. A huge utility room has the usual space for washing machine and tumble dryer and houses the mega-flow style hot water tank and boiler. There are two separate downstairs cloakrooms.

Upstairs, off a large landing, are six individually accessed bedrooms. The master suite enters into a lobby off which are a dressing room (with a comprehensive range of fitted wardrobes and cupboards) and the en-suite bathroom, fitted with a contemporary suite including bath and separate shower cubicle with twin wash handbasins, modern tiling and mirrors. The main bedroom area features a vaulted ceiling and twin opening French doors, with large arched fanlight over, leading to a personal sun balcony. Any of the other five bedrooms could comfortably afford a double bed and two have their own en-suite shower rooms. The family bathroom is again fitted with a modern white suite including bath and large walk in glazed shower cubicle.

Garden & Exterior 
Heath Lodge can be approached from either side of the house via a cobblestone paved in-and-out driveway providing parking for a number of vehicles. There are two individual garages, one attached to the house and the other at the other side, this one also having a large detached outhouse, ideal for lawnmower storage etc. Side access leads to the beautiful rear garden, extensive in size with a full width paved patio giving way to an extensive area of well maintained lawns. The garden faces a westerly direction so the patio takes full advantage of the afternoon sun. To the rear of the garden is an array of mature trees and bordered by high privet hedging and fir trees.

Location 
The Hockering is considered by many to be Woking's foremost private development. With its own residents association it really is a wonderful area in which to live with tree lined roads revealing glimpses of high quality neighbouring homes. The joy of its position is in close proximity of Woking train station which offers one of the best services to London Waterloo in the south east. It is just under a mile distant. Woking offers a wide range of transport (including a regular coach service to Heathrow from the station), shopping and leisure facilities including the New Victoria Theatre and multi-screen cinema. Woking Park is a short distance away and there are wonderful leafy walks, cycles or riding opportunities on Horsell Common or slightly further afield in the Surrey Hills. Further recreational pursuits include flying at Fairoaks, shooting at Bisley, Foxhills Country Club and golf at a number of outstanding local clubs. There is a very good selection of both state and private sc
