    About this property

    • Little Firs is a fine example of the work of Blunden Shadbolt, an unsung hero of British architecture who in the early Twentieth Century, from his office in Horley, established a unique style of building modern houses in the Tudor Revival or Arts and Crafts Movement, using reclaimed oak beams and materials, and developed several of his own trademark features. The present owners have retained many of these features which include, Inglenook fireplaces and exposed beams, whilst having sympathetically extended and upgraded during their ownership over the past 50 years.

      The property has five generous bedrooms and two bathrooms, including a principal suite. The re fitted kitchen/breakfast room has a gas fired AGA and walk in pantry. The sitting room has a feature bay window, the room leads onto the library/study that overlooks the gardens. The double aspect dining room also has French doors leading onto the terrace and attractive gardens. A utility room/boot room and downstairs cloakroom complete the accommodation.

      To the front of the property is a sweeping shingle driveway flanked by lawn with mature trees, this leads to a double garage with electronic door, there is ample eaves storage over the garage and a separate workshop/store to the rear. At the rear of the property is a York stone terrace area leading onto an expanse of mature lawn with numerous trees and shrubs, soft fruit and vegetable garden and a well maintained tennis court to the rear.

      Please note this property has private drainage.
