Brighton Road, Godalming
An exquisite Lutyens designed home built for Gertrude Jekyll, who created gardens to surround the property. Sympathetically modernised and extended, the Grade II listed Munstead Wood Hut offers an exciting opportunity for further restoration and modernisation. The property also benefits from a detached self-contained annexe.
Once the residence of Gertrude Jekyll herself, and designed by the renowned architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, this stunning Grade II listed property has some truly incredible history. The property has been painstakingly modernised and extended by the current owner, to create a home that benefits from such a wealth of character features yet is highly practical for modern living. There is an abundance of charming reception space with well proportioned rooms and good ceiling heights. Bathrooms on the ground and first floor means the space can be used flexibly as to the requirements of the owners.
The gardens around The Hut were originally designed by Gertrude Jekyll as part of her private home and are well documented. The existing space of 0.585 acres is wonderfully private with mature trees and hedging on the boundaries. Interest has been added to the garden with areas of box hedging, flower beds, lawned areas and mature trees and shrubs. There are two driveways to access the property and provides plenty of parking.
A fantastic addition to the main house is the detached garage which has been converted to a self-contained annexe that has been used to provide rental income.
