A truly stunning Grade II listed house, originally built in 1932 for Sir Arthur Lowes Dickinson. The property was designed by Connell, Ward and Lucas. Described as 'one of the most consistent, controversial and successful architectural practices working in the modern style England in the 1930's', the house is of a fan shaped design reflecting the architect's departure from the conventional planning of the period. The property offers practical yet versatile accommodation arranged over three floors.
The front door opens into an entrance vestibule with doors leading to the four principal reception rooms around a fabulous glass tower housing the staircase. A double aspect sitting room is further complemented with an open fire and doors directly out to the garden. The family room has an original sculptural fireplace, adding even more architectural charm to this individual building. For more formal entertainment there is a separate dining room adjacent to the butler’s pantry which in turn leads to the kitchen. A fourth reception room adjoins the property via a separate utility room. In addition there is a second staircase adjacent to a study. The first floor is of equal merit, retaining many of the original features associated with this architectural design, comprising of a principle bedroom adjacent to a separate bathroom suite. Four further bedrooms are served by a family bathroom and a separate shower room. Stairs lead from the first floor to the roof terrace with an inner store room. This outside space provides a spectacular entertainment area with stunning views over the garden and beyond. In addition to the main accommodation to the rear of the double garage is a games room/office.
The property is situated in an elevated position in the centre of Grayswood Village, close to local amenities including a church, village hall, School, and village Inn/restaurant. Shopping, sporting and recreational activities are available in Haslemere, approximately 1.5 miles distant, where there is also a mainline railway station providing a frequent service to London Waterloo in just under the hour. Grayswood is surrounded by beautiful countryside which is well known for its natural beauty, whilst other facilities including theatres at Guildford and Chichester, golf courses at Hindhead and Liphook and sailing on the south coast, are all accessed by good transport routes.
The property is approached via a long sweeping gravel driveway leading to a turning circle and a double garage. The grounds (approximately 12 acres) comprise orchard, woodland and a large paddock. The formal gardens are a particular feature of the property with widespread lawns interspersed with herbaceous borders and many fine specimen trees and an ornamental lily pond.
