Designed by Leslie Gooday OBE, one of the most prominent British architects of the post-war period, this stunning and quite unique property incorporates much of the quiet elegance of the modern style and in recognition is now listed Grade II.
The property is noted for the sensitive use of contrasting materials in its construction, including a copper roof, paved courtyards, birch wood, brick and cast concrete giving sweeping lines that complement and blend with the natural woodland setting.
Of particular note is the vaulted main reception room, overlooked by a mezzanine floor which is both grand and formal. All the rooms have large floor to ceiling windows making the rooms bright and affording views over the gardens and giving an inside out feel'.
The house is approached down a long sweeping tree lined drive leading to the parking area and garaging. In addition there is a detached double garage for further parking.
Of particular note is that this freehold property is being offered for sale with planning permission for the conversion of the main double garage to allow for a spacious bedroom suite with a linked basement under the driveway, giving the option for additional gym and leisure facilities. Listed planning consent has also been passed to modernise all bathrooms, the kitchen, window treatments, electrics and heating. More information can be viewed on Elmbridge Borough Council's website; planning numbers 2016/2013 and 2016/1735.
Long Wall gives a buyer the opportunity to own a British design classic in a peaceful and tranquil setting but still only 24 miles from Central London.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
