In a particularly secluded setting, this magnificent hall house affords security and privacy within beautiful gardens whilst having excellent accessibility. The M23 provides swift access to London and the M25, and there are air and rail links direct to central London and further afield from nearby Gatwick airport.
The village of Charlwood has local shops and the popular Half Moon public house. Nearby towns include Horsham, Reigate and Dorking along with many charming Surrey and Sussex villages. Based on the iron industry, Charlwood had a period of great prosperity in the Middle Ages. The parish has over eighty listed buildings and features, including twenty eight medieval open hall houses; more than in any other Surrey village.
The original dwelling on site was a large medieval hall house with a crown post roof. The owners at that time built an early outside kitchen wing which was a long room opening into the roof giving rise to the “soot blackened” crown posts and timbers. To the left of the timber framed porch a parlour wing was added in Tudor times. One can see the distinctive close studding so prevalent in fine properties of that era.
