Hambledon House

Large new family home set in a mature Victorian parkland in Surrey. The house replaces a smaller 1960s house. The sensitive site is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Green Belt and a Conservation Area.

The 1200m2 three-storey house has an open-plan main living floor, which opens out onto a terrace above a base containing large swimming pool and gym. Four bedrroms are provided in a series of set-back ‘pavilions’ on the upper floor.
