The village was first recorded in 1063 and is steeped in history with an abundance of charming traditional cottages.

Willow Pool we believe dates to 1648 and has been carefully and sympathetically extended to offer all the modern requirements we have come to expect. Sat behind a high natural boundary and accessed via double electric gates, you sweep into a large, gravelled parking area, and the stone-arched entrance becomes visible.

Stepping through this glorious stone-arched entrance, a glazed cloister provides a true sense of arrival and a moment to enjoy the landscaped gardens that wrap around the house. This vaulted modern oak-framed hallway with stone-flagged floors is bright and welcoming and serves as the perfect link between the original old house and its newer additions.

Parallel to this fabulous, glazed link is a hand-made bespoke kitchen/breakfast room fitted and designed by Messer Turner & Froye of Esher. Shaker-style cabinets have been finished in a glorious dual-tone, with the most striking curved central island providing ample preparation areas and breakfast bar seating for those informal gatherings. The use of Nero Zimbabwe chiselled granite with rockface edges is seldom seen and adds a real sense of opulence and rarity. For the budding chef, a four-oven Aga finished in deep navy with a side module along with a summer oven, induction hob and steam drawers, pantry, and large American-style fridge freezer all add those much need modern appliances for the largest of gatherings. This hub of the home is substantial in size and enjoys ample space for a large breakfast table and seating areas. A separate utility room is also accessed from this area.

Internal bi-fold doors open to the magnificent Elizabethan Grand Hall, with high oak arches reaching skyward. Stunning traditional craftsmanship has preserved and renewed this glorious room. A large brick fireplace balances the space and adds a real sense of majesty to this historic vaulted room. With stained glass and traditional styled led lite windows, you are transported back in time, yet reminded by the underfloor heated stone floors that every modern comfort has been considered. This splendid room also plays host to a formal dining area and leads onto a smaller more intimate living room, and around to a lovely drawing room.

Continuing back through the central cloister and accessed from the kitchen is a family room with an array of bespoke cabinetry and media wall, an inner hallway that links to a study, billiards room, and gym. It is worth noting the ground floor is arranged in a horseshoe with the Grand Hall, kitchen, family room, and gym all looking over the inner courtyard and swimming pool.

To the very front of the building, accessed via its private driveway with additional parking, is a self-contained annex with a large meeting room on the ground floor, a kitchen, and cloakroom, then upstairs to a substantial office area. Perfect for those wishing to run a business from home.

The main central staircase leads to a beautiful expansive vaulted landing, with exposed modern oak timbers. The principal bedroom suite is substantial, passing through a hand-crafted arched oak door and into the dressing room with tall wardrobes and cabinetry and onto the main bedroom area. Again, with vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows a range of further bespoke cabinetry, this bright and light bedroom has all that you would desire to relax and unwind. A luxury bathroom suite with a separate double glass shower cubicle completes this decadent suite.
