Full property description
Nestled at the bottom of a long driveway and set within the prestigious and highly sought after Hockering Estate, this detached family home has not been sold since it was constructed in 1999.
You are greeted by electric gates as you approach the property which lead to the paved driveway offering ample parking along with both a double garage and car port. Upon opening the front door, you are presented with a bright entrance hall giving access to the reception rooms on the ground floor including separate family and dining rooms to the front and a large reception room with French doors out to the rear garden along with a kitchen breakfast room with utility room, fitted appliances and central island to the rear.
Further accommodation is spread across the first and second floors and while the property easily offers seven bedrooms, there is an option for the second floor to be used in its entirety as an annex, ideal for an au pair or older children. The enormous master bedroom, measuring 23'8''x18', can be found on the first floor and features a lovely en-suite as well as views out to the private rear garden. The first floor also holds four double bedrooms of a fairly equal size, one of which benefits from an en-suite.
The grounds of the property are surrounded by mature trees and the secluded rear garden offers almost complete privacy. Mostly laid with lawn which makes maintenance very easy, there is also a paved area surrounding the property which is ideal for outdoor meals to be enjoyed throughout the summer months.
The Hockering Estate was established and developed around 1911 by the renowned local builder WG Tarrant who also developed the nearby St.Georges Hill and Wentworth estates. The majority of the properties within the estate are substantial houses set in large grounds; a designated Conservation Area containing 100 homes, which lies about a mile to the south of Woking's busy centre as well as a one-mile level walk from the mainline railway station with a fast and regular service into Waterloo (from 26 minutes). From the station there is also a regular coach service to Heathrow. London, the south coast and the national motorway network can be reached via the A3 at Guildford, the M3 at Bagshot or the M25 at junction 11 (Chertsey). When he commenced the development, Walter George Tarrant, one of the best known builders of his time wisely imposed some restrictive covenants that would strongly influence the character of the estate to this day, enabling the Residents Association to exert its influence to the benefit of the properties there. The result is a quiet peaceful oasis with no through traffic, tree lined roads and substantial housing, all within a mile of the station and town centre. There are very good schools in the area, including Hoe Bridge and St. Andrew's in Woking. Further afield is St. George's in Weybridge, Heathfield St. Mary's in Ascot and Charterhouse in Godalming. A public golf course is adjacent to the estate & several other golf courses such as the three W's Woking, Westhill and Worplesdon, along with New Zealand, West Byfleet, Foxhills & Queenwood. Further country clubs within a 3-mile radius include the Hook Heath Lawn Tennis Club and The Horsell and Woking Cricket Club.
