Wonersh Common, Wonersh
A substantial five-bedroom character family home of 3,749 sq ft with beautiful south-westerly facing garden, including a separate paddock, located in the hugely sought after village of Wonersh. In all 0.84 acres.
Tangley Field sits in an enviable position along a private lane, away from the main village road and enjoying a wonderful rural outlook on the edge of Wonersh village.
Wonersh is a delightful old-world village with period houses and cottages lining the village street. It has a good general store/post office, a hugely popular gastro pub, doctors surgery, pharmacy, church, village halls, cricket green and bowling club. Bramley village, with its wide range of local shops, is very close by. Wonersh is surrounded by lovely countryside and there are wonderful walks on Chinthurst Hill and up to adjoining Blackheath.
The County Town of Guildford, with its famous cobbled High Street, offers excellent shopping with covered shopping precincts, and many leading stores, restaurants, and recreational facilities.
For the commuter by rail, Guildford mainline station has a fast service to London Waterloo, whilst the A3 provides excellent road links to the M25 thus putting the south coast, Heathrow and Gatwick international airports and central London within easy reach.
There are several excellent schools in the vicinity including Guildford High, Tormead and Royal Grammar School in Guildford along with Longacre, St Hilarys, St Catherines, Priors Field, Charterhouse and Cranleigh School in the surrounding villages.
For the golf enthusiast, the Bramley Golf Club 18-hole golf course is some 1.5 miles away.
Tangley Field is a substantial family house that started life off as a modest semi-rural cottage in 1948. Following a significant refurbishment and clever enlargement program, designed and managed by the renowned architect Elspeth Beard in 2015, Tangley Field is now a significant family home of approximately 3,749 sq ft.
From the main village road, a private lane leads up and away from the hustle and bustle of village life, passing open countryside on the left. After 150 yds a set of electric wooden gates gives way to a private driveway with ample parking.
The oversized main entrance door opens into the most magnificent galleried and vaulted reception hallway. This clever creation of space and light is a feeling that is carried throughout the property. Leading from this central hallway and occupying the westerly end of the property, is a substantial kitchen/breakfast/dining/family room.
This stunning room with its oak framed extension plays host to a well-appointed bespoke kitchen, designed and installed by Searle & Taylor. A generous central island with cabinets below also offers space for a breakfast area. A wide range of cabinetry provides ample storage solutions with leathered granite work surfaces offering a contemporary and tactile feel. A modern fitted electric three oven Aga is complimented by a fitted Neff combi oven. Other features include a Liebherr Wine cooler, Miele dishwasher and space for an American style double fridge and freezer unit. The bright and airy space can be arranged to suit, but currently hosts a dining area and family seating areas. The westerly end of the kitchen has a bright and uplifting glazed wall, with a triple aspect overlooking the garden, paddock to the west and distant views to the north. All the windows have the benefit of plantation shutters. In addition, a separate utility/boot room with a single stable door to the garden plus a separate cloakroom completes this side of the home.
Leading from the reception hall to the east you will find a generous dining room with central wood burner. Whether you choose to keep this charming room as its current use or perhaps changing it to drawing room, highlights why this property has so much versatility. A sitting room overlooks the rear garden with a well-appointed study also being accessed from here. Leading from the study is a beautifully appointed shower room. *If your needs require a downstairs bedroom and bathroom, the study could be used for this purpose as it is a generous size.
Part of the redevelopment was the installation of an oak-framed principal staircase. Again, the use of a vaulted ceiling and large window flood the galleried landing with light, and offer some stunning views across the surrounding landscape.
The principal bedroom suite enjoys a double aspect, a separate dressing room and beautifully appointed en suite bathroom. The second bedroom has a good range of fitted wardrobes and cabinetry and also has an en suite bathroom. Two further double bedrooms and family bathroom complete this first floor. All bedrooms enjoy spectacular views to the North and St Marthas.
The second floor, accessed by another fine oak staircase, is given over to a superb bedroom with a separate living area and en suite bathroom. Given how this room was constructed, it also enjoys vaulted ceilings.
Leading from the principal reception rooms, access can be gained to the south facing rear garden. A delightful terrace extends along the full width of the building and overlooks a well-tended lawn. An array of flower bed borders are bursting full of perennial planting, mixed shrubs, and trees.
The gravel driveway offers ample parking and leads to a detached double garage. Unlike most double garages this one was built to not only accommodate two cars but has great depth to provide for a workshop and storage area. A substantial mezzanine level has been installed creating further storage.
To the right of the driveway and behind a high hedge is a secluded paddock area. The paddock has its own gated entrance in addition to being accessed from the rear garden.
In all 0.85 acres.
