From Town & Country

THE PROPERTY: Looking out over the breathtaking Surrey Downs, this Grade II-listed home offers all the charms of village life. Steeped in history, Eyehurst Farm House was once part of the Chipstead Manor and was used as a hunting lodge by Edward VII, Prince of Wales. With seven bedrooms, six bathrooms and five acres of luscious grounds, it has been sympathetically refurbished to perfectly blend period character with modern functionality.

THE LOCATION: Eyehurst Farm House is set half a mile outside the village of Kingswood, where commuters can reach London Bridge by train in 40 minutes or, if they’d rather travel by car, they can hop onto the M25, which is a mere five minutes’ drive away. The village and the surrounding area has a host of pubs, shops, restaurants and cafés, as well as a selection of golf courses for those looking to practice their putting on the weekends.

THE INTERIOR: Oak joinery runs throughout the house, including all the kitchen fittings, and huge bay windows let in plenty of natural light. Each room bursts with individual character, with exquisitely hand-painted frescos adorning the walls of the drawing-room and pool house, as well William Morris-esque designs on the wallpaper and curtains throughout.
