Surrey barn with its own beach
£2.8 million: Smithwood Common, near Cranleigh in Surrey, sets the scene for this wow house in nine blissfully rural acres, taking in an outdoor pool and a small lake with its own beach.
What started life as a shabby barn is now a jaw-dropping upside-down house designed to capture incredible country views from every room. Enter through an entire wall of glass and steel into a hallway showcasing a striking glass staircase up to a vast kitchen/ dining/living area lit by walls of glass to a fabulous sun terrace. Downstairs finds a master bedroom suite overlooking the pool, plus three further bedrooms, two bathrooms, a well-equipped gym and a cinema in the basement, where there’s also a temperaturecontrolled wine room.
It’s on the market with Knight Frank (01483 660073).
