Property in Tarring

With parks, good schools, some lovely old pubs and easy commuter access, its easy to see why the Tarring area is so popular with property buyers.

Whats more, there is something for almost everyone too. The area has a number of flats, both purpose built and converted, bungalows, chalets, detached family homes and smaller properties ideal for first time buyers.

The Benefits of Moving to Tarring

Today, Robert Luff talks about some of the benefits of the area.

“Tarring has one of the most diverse selections of property in the Worthing area. Tarring High Street really is the heart of the old village with its two old pubs and 15th restaurant. Properties here vary from almost doll’s house cottages to larger Victorian properties and there are even some 1970’s cottages built by local firm Strattons in keeping with the area."

"South St Tarring and Rectory Rd are busier roads with local shops and a wider selection of homes. The shops have flats above but these rarely come to market. Rectory Road has a nice selection of bungalows and small houses and at the northern end, large Victorian 4 bedders and 1930’s detached and semi mock Tudor houses. The shops and pub/restaurant at the Thomas a Becket are popular destinations."

Buyers looking for a bungalow will probably look along Wiston Avenue and St Lawrence Avenue close to the large doctor’s surgery/pharmacy. There is a good selection in and around this area with prices starting at around £400,000 and going up to £650,000. If that’s a bit over budget maybe a ground floor flat would suit – there are plenty in the Parkfield Road development recently built by Rocco Homes that are really in keeping with the area.”

Local Tarring Schools and Other Destinations

So what is it that sets Tarring apart from other areas?

“It’s great for commuting as it is on the north edge of Worthing so its quick to get to the main London and Gatwick roads as well as the A27 east/west. Plus there’s a mainline station at the end of South St Tarring and the place is on a bus route!”

Thomas a Becket first and primary schools are popular, as is Worthing High at the end of St Lawrence Avenue. For older offspring, Worthing College is around a mile away in Offington, easily walkable. Tesco and Sainsbury have small outlets on former petrol stations and there is the usual good selection of barbers, nail salons and hairdressers too.

All in all, Tarring makes for a great buying destination.
