Property Summary

Situated in the heart of Hill Head a stone’s throw from the foreshore, an iconic property built in 1910 set in established, private and tranquil grounds of just under half an acre extending to 2,232 square feet of beautifully maintained accommodation. This much-loved family home has been owned by my clients for over twenty years and has only had a handful of owners since it was built, including being seconded during WW2 by the Fleet Air Arm for officers’ accommodation.

Full Details

Tregarth has a beautiful deep frontage defined at the boundary by a cluster of spectacular Scotch pine and Holm oak trees, a wide gravel driveway sweeps round to the front of the house and an adjacent 5 bar gate leads through to the garaging at the rear. The canopied quarry tile porch leads into the Entrance Hall and the wealth of period features are immediately apparent evoking a deep sense of history with picture rails and original fireplaces throughout the house. The Sitting Room is a wonderful, elegant room with an open fireplace, bespoke cabinetry and beautiful Arts and Crafts style bow window; glazed doors lead into the Study which overlooks the garden. The Kitchen/Dining Room offers a generous area for both formal and informal dining and the Kitchen itself has been beautifully fitted with bespoke hand-crafted cupboards with granite worktops and a walk in Pantry cupboard; a range of appliances are also included. The Utility/Boot Room adjacent to the Kitchen is well proportioned with ample cupboards for storage, a Samsung American fridge/freezer, wine fridges and space for washing machine and tumble dryer. Upstairs are four double bedrooms which are complimented by two traditional travertine bathroom suites and with Bedroom 2 featuring a bow window giving tantalising glimpses of the sea through Giblet Ore. The loft space has also been converted offering additional flexible accommodation for guests or which could be used as an informal Sitting Room or Study. Outside to the rear a large York stone terrace showcases the glorious setting with mature borders and an area of lawn, framed by majestic oak trees and a silver birch tree. A screened vegetable garden is tucked in the corner with raised beds, wooden greenhouse and wooden gardeners shed. The original boat house was converted by my clients in 2014 into a wonderful Garden Room exuding a relaxed boutique vibe with panelling, French barge woodburning stove, free standing kitchen and ensuite bathroom. Similarly in 2014 the oak framed double garage was built, fitted with stainless steel cupboards and heaters and also with eaves storage.

Hill Head remains an exclusive and popular location with a beautiful shoreline and safe waters making it ideal for sailing and windsurfing; there is an active sailing club in the harbour and Titchfield Haven Nature Reserve nearby provides a stunning backdrop with a rich habitat of rivers and marshlands, home to a wide diversity of geese, duck, egrets, and marsh harriers.
