Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Sitting in an elevated position on the fringes of Hook Heath and with crisp white elevations under a clay tiled roof this is a superb family home of exceptional character that retains a great deal of the feel of the original building. From the start and throughout there are wonderful period features here that one would hope to find in a property of this calibre such as beautiful fireplaces, superb lead light windows, picture rails and beautiful woodwork, all of which is so much a part of what makes this such an appealing home. Although the house has been extended over the years, there remains considerable potential here for an incoming buyer to enlarge the house should they so wish, subject of course to a planning consent being achieved to do so.

On the ground floor a hugely welcoming reception hall with a beautiful rich herringbone wood block floor leads to the majority of the living rooms and immediately sets the feeling for what lies beyond. The sitting room is a particularly light and airy double aspect room with a beautiful central fireplace and a deep bay window where doors open out onto the south facing sun terrace. On the front of the house, an equally comfortable dining room likewise has a very attractive brick fireplace while a further sitting room on the back again has the lovely herringbone floor, a central fireplace and a fabulous seated bay window that overlooks the terrace and garden beyond. From this room an inner lobby with a shower room and separate cloakroom leads through into a large light and airy family room on the back which would equally well make a splendid home office if preferred and where sliding doors lead out onto the rear garden. The kitchen breakfast room is on the front and has ample space for a large dining table and is fitted out with a range of wooden units with a beautiful pine dresser to one side and a lovely rich quarry tiled floor. Off the kitchen there is a large utility room and beyond this is a useful larder.

From the reception hall a beautiful turning staircase leads to the first floor and in turn to all of the bedrooms. The master bedroom is on the back and has a lovely view out across the rear garden through a beautiful lead light corner window while over to one side there is a whole range of fitted wardrobes. This room also has its own full en suite bathroom which is of an excellent size. The remaining bedrooms are all comfortable doubles with the guest room having its own en-suite cloakroom. All in all this is a superb family home in a very private setting.


Location 
The house sits in an elevated position on the fringes of Hook Heath and is therefore in the perfect spot to take advantage of everything that the town has to offer. The town centre in Woking has undergone a very significant programme of regeneration in recent years that has resulted in a modern and contemporary feel and where there are a great many interesting bars, cafes and restaurants all along Commercial Way. Beside this is the Peacocks shopping centre which is also home to the New Victoria theatre and the multi screen cinema and Woking has what is widely regarded as one of the very best commuting rail stations in the south east which runs an exceptionally efficient and frequent service into Waterloo. In and around Woking there are numerous extremely well thought of golf courses as well as an exceptional array of schools for all ages in both the private and the state sector. Within a short walk of the house is Hook Heath Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club and a short drive further on

Garden & Exterior 
At the front of the house a driveway allows for the off-road parking of a number of cars and leads to a detached garage. The rear garden takes full advantage of its southerly aspect to catch the sun throughout the day no more so than on the large sun terrace which makes a wonderful spot for eating outside during the summer months. The remainder of the garden is neatly lawned with a collection of interesting and mature trees and is extremely well enclosed and provides the house with an uncommon degree of seclusion and privacy.
