The Dutch House is a substantial Grade II listed detached house set in this popular Surrey Hills village. The property has historic links to the Suffragette movement with prominent leaders Emmeline Pethick Lawrence and husband Frederick Pethick Lawrence having lived here from 1901 to 1912, when the property was known as ‘The Mascot’. The plaque in the entrance hall reading ‘O Liberty, Thou Choicest Treasure!’ was erected in commemoration of the sale of the contents (furniture) of the property in 1912 with many friends attending the auction to buy these possessions and return to the Pethick Lawrences. The property was designed by the well-known architect Edwin Lutyens and features a unique layout being a Y-shape, with all rooms emanating from a central hallway. The sitting room and separate dining room are wonderfully proportioned, each with character features and open fireplaces, the kitchen has a quarry tiled floor and is fitted with matching wall and base and opens to the breakfast room which is a wonderfully light room with ample space for a large dining table. Also off the kitchen will be found the utility room, large store cupboard and former scullery. The study features a round bay window and open fireplace, a ground floor shower room and a separate w.c. completes this space. Off the spacious first floor landing there are three bedrooms, the main bedroom has an en-suite shower room, bedroom two being similar in size. A further room has been given over as a dressing room with fitted wardrobes, a separate w.c., additional shower and bathroom flow from the landing, behind the bathroom is a large walk-in airing cupboard which in turn leads to a useful storage area or additional dressing room. On the second floor are the remaining three bedrooms, each with their own hand basin, a large eaves storage room completes the internal accommodation. Outside, the property is approached via a five-bar gate leading to the ample driveway with parking for multiple vehicles along with a detached double garage. The grounds are a wonderful feature of the property being level and having a westerly aspect and comprising a mature garden predominantly laid to lawn and defined by hedging on all sides. Directly to the rear is a large terrace and covered loggia with a Lutyens gate leading to the garden along with a gardener’s w.c. and log store. In all, the grounds extend to 0.55 of an acre.
