Retaining many original features, Mollstone Wood is a handsome, detached country house of quality sitting in the heart of its plot close to Merle Common on the outskirts of Limpsfield. Designed and constructed in the 1930s to reflect the fifteenth century style of architecture yet with Arts and Crafts sensibilities, the house has decorative chimney stacks, a wealth of exposed oak joinery, oriel and mullioned windows and oak panelling sympathetic to a Tudor manor house. The musician and well know socialite, Beatrice Harrison, commissioned the build on land that was formerly owned by the Titsey Estate, the property then included a lodge house and cottage. Extended and improved in the early twenty first century the house is presented to a high standard with quality fittings and bespoke double glazed windows.
Located in a rural position backing onto greenbelt fields on the edge of Staffhurst Wood and Merle Common amidst open countryside with seasonal views of The North Downs. The much sought after Limpsfield Village is about 2 miles which has a village infants school, public house, restaurant and shop/post office. Nearby are local woods famous for bluebells and Limpsfield Chart offering ideal opportunities for walking, golf and riding.

The garden has been designed with outside living in mind and is divided into areas providing privacy and to maximise the south and westerly aspect. There is a wide terrace by the house with outdoor cooking area which leads to a Koi carp pond with adjacent decking and verandah.
