At the period of creating this building, Mole Valley Planning Department were extremely conservative, not allowing any exciting external structure and insisting the external brick should be red.
We were therefore forced to continue the line of the cottages opposite, running along the pavement line with a frontage height of six metres.
The structure, therefore, follows the pavement line, but the three-bedroom windows have arched dormer stone tops. This stone capping follows throughout the whole exterior, giving a slightly more modern appearance.
The rear of the building drops to eleven and a half metres, the interior of this area being single-storey.
The interior is completely open plan, to the rear are the dining and lounge areas, overlooked by an open gallery. The kitchen and study are along the frontage, positioned below the bedroom.
Large doors open onto a small rear garden, bringing the garden into the house.
Adjoining is a separate studio.
