Hook Heath, Woking
Superbly renovated and extended by the present owners, Hook Hill Cottage is a fine Edwardian Arts and Crafts-influenced detached residence of 1910 by Horace Field, architect of many of Woking's finest houses of that time; a reminder of a bygone era with an interesting history including being visited, often, by Rupert Brooke, one of the three most important poets of the 1st World War. Hook Hill Cottage was the country retreat of his one-time fiancée, Ka Cox. Although a cottage in name, the property is a sizeable dwelling with a substance and quality about it including much oak joinery and lofty ceilings as well as ledged and braced internal doors, a magnificent fireplace and a substantial Oak and wrought iron front door, all of which are features that are not regularly found in more contemporary properties. The rooms are spacious with large windows allowing natural light to flood into the main rooms, many of which look out over the splendid sloping gardens that extend to some 0.7 of an acre.
As well as the history and character which the property offers, no expense has been spared in the modernisation work carried out in the last few years, so a new owner will enjoy the best of both worlds - a characterful house with all modern conveniences, including double glazing throughout, underfloor heating through most of the ground floor and in all the bathrooms. Super-fast broadband, TV and data cabling is wired throughout the house, allowing modern flexible working and entertainment options.
A new kitchen has been created to the right hand side (as you see the house from the garden). With bifold doors to two elevations and an enormous roof light above, this room is amazingly bright and spacious. A large utility room leads off from the kitchen, and uses the same high-quality units & granite surfaces, as well as a Qooker boiling water tap for the sink - always a welcome luxury feature!
