    About this property

    • The Old Barn dates back to the early 17th century having originally been built in Sussex, and then the frame moved to Surrey in 1920 for the Lyle (Golden Syrup) Family and constructed by architect George Blair Imrie who was famed for the comfort of his houses and was once named ‘England's most characterful Small House' - ‘Surrey life-2005'.

      The Old Barn is an incredibly atmospheric and characterful four bedroom home of just under 2900 sq ft of accommodation and has been well looked after and maintained by the current owners.

      The house exudes an abundance of period features including oak and ironwork doors, fitted inset bookcases, staircase setting and hand painted tiles. Of particular note is the impressive main drawing room with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, large open fireplace and leads onto a loggia overlooking the garden. There is a dining room and adjoining sitting room with double doors opening onto the garden. The double aspect kitchen is well equipped with a window seat, open fireplace and adjacent pantry. A useful utility room and shower room are off the kitchen, with access to the garden. There is a fourth bedroom/studio with a mezzanine level off the kitchen. 2 studies, a boot room and guest WC complete the ground floor accommodation.

      The first floor comprises the principal bedroom, two further bedrooms, and a family bathroom.

      Outside, the property sits in just over 0.5 acres and is mainly laid to lawn with brick paths, raised herbaceous borders and boxed hedging, with Blair Imrie having designed the garden as he did with many of his other houses. There is a long driveway with parking for numerous cars. The property was rethatched in 2021, with high tech insulation/fireguard.
