About this property

  • Tarrytown is located just outside the edge of the South Downs National Park off Durley Street which runs between Bishops Waltham and Hedge End and is surrounded by its own garden and paddock land with a most attractive backdrop of pasture fields and woodland beyond to the north. The property is a pretty house constructed originally in the 17th Century and is of brick elevations under a handmade clay tiled roof and has not been on the market for over 60 years. The property retains the majority of its fine period features, hence its listed status including exposed oak frames and beams and brick and inglenook fireplace. The property has been well looked after, and now offers a unique opportunity as a family home. The accommodation extends in all to over 3,000 sq.ft. with well laid out rooms with four reception rooms, a large kitchen with breakfast room area and utility, larder and cloakroom beyond. An attractive deep original inglenook fireplace with Villager wood burner in the sitting room with exposed oak framed and beam ceilings and upstairs approached over two separate staircases comprise the first two main bedrooms with landing and en suite/family bathroom and on a slightly lower level a further three bedrooms, secondary landing and stairs and family bathroom.

    Close to the gravelled driveway entrance and parking area there is further detached brick and tile garaging straight onto the public highway with attic space above and attached and separate workshop. There is an attractive brick paving pathway around the majority of the house with substantial roadside laurel hedgerow and rose borders with lawned and bordered gardens to the front and rear with log store and post and rail fencing. The garden backs on to the 1.7 acre grazing paddock beyond which has its own stabling and field shelters, lean-to storage shed an d a separate 12' x 10' greenhouse and at the bottom of the garden, close to the paddock entrance onto the highway, there is a large timber framed and clad wood and general storage barn. Situated within the paddock there is a 4KW 16 panel free standing solar array and the benefit of the generous Feed In Tariff (FIT) will be transferred to the new owners.
