Alfold Road, Dunsfold
A long and winding drive through the mature woodland and an array of substantial and very old Rhododendron bushes create a colourful atmosphere of enchantment and excitement for what lies ahead. The driveway opens to reveal Barnfield. One of the county’s prettiest mid-century small country estates. Built in the traditional Surrey/ Sussex style, it is characterised by a wonderful oak framing with red brick infills, and part-hanging tile elevations, all under a clay-tiled roof.
Our clients have undertaken a significant refurbishment program, which has seen many modern and ingenious installations that future-proof this wonderful house for the foreseeable future.
The heavy oak studded front door gives way to a welcoming and opulent reception hall, from here the house comes alive with bright, creative interior design. The beautiful dining room, opulent sitting room, study, and cloakroom all lead from this central reception hall. The Drawing room is by far one of the many stand-out features of this magnificent home, with enough space for the largest of gatherings, a wonderful inglenook creates a characterful focal point, whilst the newly installed
twin set of double doors flood the room with light and bring the outside in.
A newly installed bespoke kitchen by Indigo Kitchens has been beautifully crafted. With dual-tone cabinets, white stone worksurfaces, and an oversized central island creates a fabulous space to entertain and cook. With a fabulous array of cabinets, larder cupboards, a coffee station, bespoke draw units, and four oven Everhot range cooker, this really is a remarkable kitchen. Through changes made to the internal walls, a newly installed bar area coupled with the addition of new windows and double doors to the garden terrace all help to create the most superb entertainment space.

The principal bedroom suite has been meticulously designed with a wonderful, vaulted ceiling, with a newly created dressing area and separate dressing room coupled with a newly installed luxury en-suite bathroom.

The magnificent gardens and grounds that surround the house are well-established and contain a wealth of mature shrubs and plants. To one side of the house lies a croquet lawn with a summer house and an apple orchard which in spring is carpeted with daffodils. On the other side of the house, is a large terrace, and approached by Yorkstone pathways is the swimming pool area.
