Wonersh Common, Wonersh
A beautiful, substantial two-bedroom apartment of 1450 sq. ft. set in 7 acres of manicured communal gardens. Conveniently located within walking distance of Wonersh Village.
Apartment 3, Little Tangley is a charming and well-presented property, it occupies an envious position, in a peaceful spot just outside the village and is approached by a long drive. The original house was built in 1656 and in 1822 the house was increased in size to accommodate James Butcher and his 21 children. Lutyens arrived in 1890 where he completed the works by adding 2 large wings. In 1952 the property was converted into 10 apartments, which is how Little Tangley is still presented today.
On entering from the main house, you are welcomed by a large entrance hall with a beautiful oak staircase. A double front door goes into the apartments private hallway, which leads into a magnificent drawing room with an open fireplace and views across the gardens and pond. The kitchen has been custom-made and is very well-appointed, with space for a breakfast table.
Two good size double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and one that is close to the family bathroom, make this a well-planned home.
Without doubt, the gardens are a very special part of Little Tangley with several magnificent trees dating back hundreds of years which can be seen from all parts of the grounds. The main planting and terraces were planned by Gertrude Jekyll, working alongside Lutyens who created many of the steps that lead to the upper terraces. Each apartment has a plot for a summer house, most have been erected but apartment 3 has a plot ready to accommodate this. Walking is plentiful from Little Tangley, a garden gate goes straight onto a footpath that takes you onto Blackheath with miles of glorious open countryside.
