    About this property

    • Long Spinney is a striking country home understood to have been built in 1927 with generous proportions and well planned accommodation presented over three floors.

      The property has been well maintained and is being offered to the market in the first time in over 25 years.

      There are four beautiful reception rooms and a study on the ground floor, each of these rooms are wonderfully light, all enjoying a pleasant aspect and the accommodation flows particularly well and is versatile in its arrangement and use. The reception room and dining rooms have open fires, sash windows with views over the garden. The beautifully fitted library faces the front of the house.

      The kitchen/breakfast room has been fitted with traditional oak cabinetry, has the benefit of underfloor heating and ample space for informal dining. Off the kitchen is the den/ family room and utility room.

      To the first floor is the impressive principal bedroom suite with an adjoining dressing room, double aspect and en suite bathroom. Across the hall are three further bedrooms (one en suite), a family bathroom and a second study.

      On the second floor are two additional bedrooms, a large en suite bathroom and a storage area in the eaves.

      Outside, the house sits well within its plot and is accessed via a long private drive giving a sense of arrival. Sweeping lawns surround the house and the delightful terrace is accessed from the sitting room and the library. The gardens are tranquil and private, framed in mature hedging and specimen trees.

      The property has a separate annexe with a first floor studio and garage, workshop and store below. There is also an outside WC connected to the main house.

    I love the location and convenience of Long Spinney in the heart of the Surrey Hills and the proportions of this fine family home.
