Why We Love Tarring
1 Sep, 2016
We’re often getting asked by our buyers "Where is the best place in Worthing to buy?"
It's always a bit of a quandary.
By the best, do they mean the most expensive, the closest to the sea, the best for amenities or the nicest for housing?
There is, in short no one right answer.
But one area we are particularly fond of is the Tarring.
Originally, a village on the outskirts of Worthing itself since swallowed up by the sprawl, Tarring still has a village feel particularly in Tarring High Street with a variety of properties from the 14th century through to Victorian and indeed more modern as well as two village pubs, local shopping parade and Glebe Palace - a focal point for the village with many local events being held there.
Thomas Becket School is really well thought of with so many house buyers asking for “TAB Catchment” when they register with us. The entire area has easy access to the A24 London Road as well as the A27 East/West Road and West Worthing Railway Station is within half a mile.
Tarring has one of the most diverse ranges of property in the town with quaint cottages, modern flats, detached family houses almost all of which have character from the era they were built in. The area has always had grand architectural ambitions.
Just look above the shops at Thomas Becket to see the Tudor style beams and enormous brick chimneys that give such a good impression to the town when you arrive heading south.
So is Tarring the best place in Worthing?
We'll leave that up to you to decide, but it really does offer something for everyone.
