6 bedroom house for sale in South Road, Weybridge, St. Georges Hill, KT13
An original "Tarrant" house of good size with grounds extending to approximately 1.6 acres, neglected in recent years and now presenting the opportunity for complete renovation, or as a potential development site (subject to planning and SGH Estate permission).
"Summer Haze" is located in the South-West quadrant of the remarkable and exclusive St. Georges Hill private residential estate. 'The Hill', comprising some 964 acres with its private golf course meandering amongst the luxury homes nestled in its undulating folds, was established circa 1911 by renowned architect W. G. Tarrant, who had the declared aim of "creating exceptional private residences for the wealthy business or professional person, where privacy and quiet could be enjoyed in surroundings of natural beauty, with excellent facilities for sport and exercise".
This home is one of the original 'Tarrant' designed and built homes, probably constructed in the mid 1920's, and boasting an interesting history. Once owned as the private residence of Beatles drummer, Ringo Starr, and a venue of many celebrity visitors, sadly it has been neglected and unoccupied in recent years, yet still commands a presence of individual charm and bespoke design; in fact the apartment/studio features some wall art thought to be attributed to the era of "Beatles ownership". Today there is the opportunity for renovation and restoration to former glory, or the potential, subject to planning permission and estate approval, to replace the house with a 21st century home on its extensive grounds which extend to approximately 1.6 acres.
Including garage, poolside outbuilding, and both floors, the floor area totals almost 6,500 sq. ft. Tall wrought iron gates open from South Road onto a large driveway/forecourt, the living accommodation is laid out over 2 floors, there is a 2 bedroom apartment approached via its own internal staircase, and extensive gardens with a stepped path running down to the outdoor swimming pool.
