Time with Friends in the Surrey House

In the tranquil Surrey countryside, a leafy, private road leads guests through an electric, solid wood gate to the satisfying crunch of their tyres slowing on a gravel forecourt. A sea of neon azalea blossom and the pale, fanned hands of a magnolia tree greet new arrivals, before your beaming face appears at the door to invite them inside. For your chance to win this Idyllic House, worth £3,000,000, along with £100,000 in cash, enter the Surrey House Draw supporting Prostate Cancer UK.

Welcome coffee brews beneath statement dome pendant lights, inlaid with gold, on a marble, waterfall island in this rear-aspect kitchen. Town meets country as a vast, overhead light well and wall of black aluminium, glazed doors to the garden boldly illuminate an open-plan layout of oak shaker cabinets and oak floorboards. Friends and family unwind on an elegant, wooden sofa and chairs of rattan and cane, elevated above a natural fibre rug on slender feet.  

Those lucky enough to be staying the night drop their bags onto the brushed cotton covers of the main, en suite guestroom’s inviting bed, behind which fresh green panelling mirrors the surrounding foliage. Pure white walls, woodgrain and soft fabrics in varying shades of stone paint a calming picture to rest within. As loved ones chatter, you select tableware from a brightly lit, bespoke cupboard of rustic ceramics, to lay out for this first garden party of many.

Sun filters through the rope-bound backs of eight dining chairs at a blond wood table on a spotless porcelain terrace, to a backdrop of tall trees and layers of woodland fading into the distance. Plates and glasses gleam in the summer light, ready to receive, as you fire up a gas barbeque in an outdoor kitchen down a path of red robin, floating cloud trees. On concrete worktops, a feast awaits and everyone gathers al fresco to take their places for lunch.

After happy hours spent passing around bowls of food, laughing and sipping iced drinks, the afternoon drops into a lower gear and the pace slows. Friends radiate out, some retreating into the shade of a peaceful summerhouse—a private, timber island in the emerald lawns. Others may return indoors, through bifold doors, into the vaulted lounge of brilliant white and oak, to drink coffee, read books or surrender to a secret siesta on a plump sofa of cool cream. 

Join your guests in reclining on striped loungers by the pool house before a leisurely swim in its heated waters, tiled with Italian mosaic. A whole wall of glazed, sliding doors offers a lush, woodland view and another of textured Purbeck stone contrasts with the perfection of the poolside’s porcelain paving. A relaxing wood-lined sauna is a perfect hideaway for heart to hearts with those you connect with most, as the summer sun begins to dip behind the house.

Across the lawn, in a towering chimney of Purbeck stone, a fire invites all to sit by its mesmerising flames in the comfort of an open air lounge beneath the glowing windows of a striking, glazed gable end. The dining table offers a welcomed candlelight supper, as music gets everyone’s feet tapping and shoulders moving. You raise a toast with those you love to celebrate this life together in full bloom, at home in the thriving garden of this Idyllic House.
