This stunning design is the response from leading London residential architect and interior designer 4D Studio to the challenge to design a 7,500 sq ft house on Kingston Hill in the Surrey vernacular style.
In designing it the residential architects at 4D Studio responded to the strong historic tradition of fine residential houses in the area. Architect Norman Shaw (1831 – 1912) designed many houses in Surrey and his brick and tile-hanging style was much copied around the county. Another well known architect, Edwin Lutyens (1869 -1944), further developed the Surrey vernacular style at the end of the nineteenth century and he built a number of stunning houses in Surrey. The Lutyens’ Surrey style for house architecture– sweeping roofs and soaring chimneys, tile hanging, multiple gables, leaded lights, exposed timbering and handcrafted details – became hugely influential and was copied around the world. Other house architects working in the first half of the twentieth century (for example Charles Voysey, Baillie Scott and Blair Imrie) also designed in the vernacular and these kinds of houses are fairly common in Surrey, especially in and around Guildford, Esher, Weybridge and West Byfleet.
Accommodation includes galleried living space, generous kitchen dining and family rooms, six bedrooms each with ensuite facilities , gymnasium, home cinema and swimming pool.
