It doesn’t have many internal period features in place, but the 1960s Edward Samuel-designed The Long House in Chipstead, Surrey is still a very stylish place to live.
The architect is perhaps more famous for his grade II-listed property in Stanmore (on Aylmer Close if you know the area) and was prominent in the Highgate area during the 1960s and ‘70s. But this place is a little off the radar.
A 1960s build and one that has changed internally over the years as successive owners have put their own stamps on it. But the house still has some huge selling points.
For one, it sits on an elevated site, with what the agent describes as ‘incredible’ views over Banstead Woods. So location has a big ‘tick’ next to it.
In addition to that is the bright and open internal space, not least when it comes to the open plan kitchen / living / dining room area with its vaulted ceiling. It’s a great place to take in those views too.
Good amount of living space overall too. As well as the open reception space on the upper floor there are four bedrooms, a family shower room and an en-suite for the master bedroom.
The lower floor has an entrance hall, cloakroom, study and utility. Love that staircase too, not to mention the exposed beams which are found in most of the rooms.
As for the outside space, the house has its own private driveway, a large forecourt area with plenty of parking space and a double garage. Gardens from and rear too, with a large sun deck above the garage too, which should be quite a draw on a sunny day.
