Dating from 1490, this stunning Grade II* listed ‘chocolate box cottage’ features rare traditional timber framing and beautiful red brick construction. Nestled on a generous corner plot in a premium location, it embodies both historical charm and modern convenience.
The Cottage, a piece of Tudor history, has been meticulously restored, remodelled and extended by the current owners. It retains its period charm with cozy living spaces, while offering near-new build condition and modern amenities. Only 5% of listed homes achieve a* rating highlighting its exceptional status. The restoration from white paint to its original red brick was commended as an outstanding conservation effort.
Located in the heart of Thorpe’s beautiful conservation area in West-Surrey, near Egham and Virginia Water, The Cottage is a short walk from the village shop and Red Lion pub. Egham Town Centre, with its shops, pubs, restaurants and supermarkets, is just a short drive away. Both Egham and Virginia Water provide railway access to London Waterloo in about 40 minutes, with the M25, M3, and M4 nearby.
The accommodation features a central entrance porch leading to two wings. The Northern wing includes a vast living room with original timber framing, wall panelling and an impressive inglenook fireplace. A conservatory, seamlessly integrated with the historic house, offers additional reception space. The Southern wing houses a large formal dining room with a modern staircase and a discreet understairs cloakroom.
The extended kitchen and utility space, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and bi-folding doors, creates a bright, modern hub. It includes a large island and ample storage, complemented by a vast second lounge with a tall, vaulted ceiling.
Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms, two with versatile loft spaces suitable for offices or a fifth bedroom. Two bedrooms, including the main, have en-suite shower rooms, while the others share a family bathroom with Velux windows. A central loft provides additional storage.
The Cottage sits on a large west-facing corner plot with gated rear parking. The deep, wide plot includes planted beds, climbing roses, established trees and hedging and a large lawn. The front garden, edged by a holly hedge, enjoys morning sun, while the rear garden and patio area are sun traps throughout the day. A large Skandi wooden cabin, shed and two log stores offer additional versatile space.
This exceptional home must be viewed to be appreciated.
