Built in 1928, The Tiled House, is a classic example of a Tarrant built home, with some delightful character features of this era, sitting centrally on a level plot of 1.25 acres, South/Easterly facing to the rear, backing directly onto St George's Hill Tennis Club.
What a charming and inviting home The Tiled House is. The property epitomises a home built by WG Tarrant, the original developer on St George's Hill dating back to 1911 when he bought the Estate from the Egerton family. Tarrant favoured the arts and crafts design in many of his homes, demonstrated here by the lovely half tile hung elevations and leaded light windows all under a clay roof.
This well-loved family home offers well-presented accommodation over two floors, which together with the garaging and indoor pool complex, extends to 5204 sq. ft. The house has a lovely warm feel about it, immediately apparent from the welcoming reception hall with guest cloakroom and giving access to the formal lounge, dining room and snug all enjoying lovely views over the delightful rear gardens. To the Eastern end of the house are the less formal rooms, with the double aspect Kitchen/breakfast room, being the ideal area for informal entertaining and meals. This in turn then leads through to a utility room and large storage cupboard and completing to ground floor is a cosy TV room and conservatory which again has lovely views over the rear gardens.
An attractive winding staircase leads to the first floor, which provides five separate well-proportioned bedrooms and a small room used as an upstairs office. The master bedroom is a lovely suite, being at one end of the house and having its own up to date en-suite bathroom. A full family bathroom, separate first floor cloakroom and shower then serve the remaining bedrooms.
Whilst perfect ably liveable in its current form, like many homes of this age, The Tiled House could benefit from some updating in certain areas. Being situated on such a wide spacious plot, we feel that subject to the necessary consents being obtained, the house could be enlarged and improved, based on extensions and improvements carried out on other neighbouring homes. In addition, it also cannot be ruled out that the plot might now lend itself to complete redevelopment with a new replacement dwelling, in line with the Estate and Planning regulations.
