Great Tangley Manor, which is listed Grade I, is described by Pevsner in The Buildings of England as ‘the most impressive of Surrey's moderate collection of half-timbered houses.' It is thought to be the UK's oldest continuously inhabited house. Since 1947, Great Tangley Manor has been owned by 4 different families. The current owners have carefully and sympathetically upgraded aspects of the property, the most notable change being the addition of a ‘glass box' extension, which won the New Building's Category of the Waverley Design Awards in 2007. Equal consideration has been given to the preservation of the fabulous gardens that surround the Manor and contribute to the majesty of its setting. The current owners purchased Great Tangley Manor in two stages as the property had been divided into two wings, under separate titles namely; Great Tangley Manor and Great Tangley Manor West. Understandably, they could not pass up the opportunity to unite the two sides under their ownership and restore the property's original ‘manor' house status. The two sides also afforded the opportunity for an income as a luxury holiday let venue, further information about this can be provided on request. The considerable reception space and bedroom accommodation extends to approximately 11,255 square feet and lends itself to numerous lifestyle options for incoming buyers.Until recently, the wing referred to as Great Tangley Manor West, has been used primarily as a holiday letting venue and has mixed use Class C3 and Class D2. It has an independent entrance, three magnificent reception spaces, a kitchen, study, cloakroom, five bedrooms and three bathrooms, one of which is en suite. One of the bedroom suites also benefits from a dressing room and one of the bathrooms is of original Art Deco design. Two ground floor reception rooms, three bedrooms and two bathrooms occupy an extension that was built by Philip Webb whilst the further reception room, two bedrooms and bathroom are situated in a ground floor extension added in the 1960's. The adjacent wing, Great Tangley Manor, has been occupied by the current owners as a family home and has three fabulous principal reception spaces in the reception hall, drawing room and dining room. This wing has access to the 40ft indoor heated pool, sauna and office. At first floor level there are five bedrooms, two dressing rooms and three bath/shower rooms. Over the centuries, the different architectural and interior styles have been successfully married to create the wonderfully characterful property that exists today. The medieval meets Arts and Crafts arrangement affords surprisingly generous room proportions and ceiling heights throughout.Whilst the property as a whole presents an extraordinary opportunity to own a piece of architectural history that functions as a comfortable family home, the capacity for separate living and accommodation spaces could also suit an incoming buyer with multi generational living requirements or with designs for letting one or more parts of the property, subject to any necessary consents. The present owners have advertised the property as a corporate event/meeting space and sporting (ie yoga) retreat. Great Tangley Manor has been used as a location for film and television purposes on a number of occasions.The current owners have carried out extensive works to the property including; exterior decoration, electrical upgrades, installation of a wood pellet heating system, installation of 3 electric car charging points, drive re-surfacing, dredging the lake, re-building the Tennis Hut and adding estate fencing. There is a monitored alarm system. The study and garage adjacent to the boiler room both benefit from air conditioning.The structure of the present gardens was devised by Wickham Flower at the end of the 19th century. It was recorded as being one of the most progressive gardens of the 1880s. Charac
