Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The cottage was designed by the eminent Victorian architect William Butterfield, and was originally the head arboriculturist's cottage on the 8th Viscount Downe's Bookham Grove Estate. The current owners have discreetly re-plumbed and re-wired the cottage as well as fitted it out with up-to-date technology, while at the same time carefully preserving the many period features which make this stunning property so unique. The recently built separate annexe provides a garage/store and office/bedroom 4; and has been designed to complement the cottage.
