Living and dining

The incredible open plan living, kitchen and dining area is the heart of the home and the perfect space to spend time together, whether you're a family or a group of friends.

Handcrafted in oak and hand painted in contrasting colours, the bespoke kitchen is equipped with everything you'll need to rustle up feasts. There's a Smeg gas double oven (with microwave and pizza plate), gas hob, AEG fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and large central island for prepping food, whilst lots of space and a larder means there's plenty of room for storing all your food.

The dining area has seating for six and there's also a beautiful Welsh dresser which the owner has made from a reclaimed oak sideboard. French windows lead out onto the deck and into the garden, so on balmy days you can bring the outside in with the sounds of the birds and maybe even the neighbouring cows and sheep accompanying you whilst you eat.

The gorgeous, light-filled sitting area has two super-comfy Loaf sofas and a leather Chesterfield armchair nestled around a crackling wood burner, meaning its oh-so-snug in cooler months. Alternatively, the French windows can be thrown open during the summer to let in the flower-scented breeze as you relax in the cooling shade - just dreamy.


There are three gorgeous bedrooms to choose from.

The master en suite bedroom is on the first floor has uninterrupted, south facing views over the Surrey Hills from the expansive deck. To the west, a Juliette balcony faces towards the North Downs and is the perfect spot for mesmerising sunsets. With a vaulted ceiling, separate dressing room, neutral tones throughout and a super king-sized bed, you're guaranteed a blissful nights' sleep in this spacious, peaceful room.

In addition, there is a dreamy second bedroom on the first floor with a double sized bed and beautiful views.

Finally, the third bedroom on the ground floor with huge French doors open on to your own private courtyard with blissful sunset views over the fields. Wake up and enjoy the surrounding views from the super king size bed.

All the rooms come complete with luxurious linen covers, sumptuous throws, and textured cushions


The master bedroom has a beautifully designed en suite shower room with rainforest shower and stone washbasin, whilst there is also a family bathroom on the first floor with bath, shower and loo. On the ground floor next to the bedroom there's another shower room with loo. Each comes with heated rail to keep towels beautifully warm and fluffy.

Outdoor space

The south facing garden is just spectacular, and you'll not want to leave this little piece of paradise! There is a large wooden deck leading off the house, accessed through the three large French windows. Leading from the dining room, outside you'll find a fabulous bespoke wooden table and Weber gas barbecue with incredible views as you cook alfresco meals. Leading from the sitting room are two occasional chairs and a fire pit - made for watching the stars and roasting marshmallows. In addition, there's a large lawned area with raised beds with flowers and vegetables (these are maintained by the owner).


There is plenty of off road, private parking for three cars directly outside the house.
