MONK'S LANTERN, ST GEORGE'S HILL, SURREY

A large new house, now called Corwen Manor, on the St George’s Hill Estate occupying a steeply sloping site that allows the basement swimming pool to emerge into a sunken garden.  The house is of brick and stone with a slate roof and white painted timberwork brick and stone. 

The main part of the house is formal and symmetric with a columned centrepiece on the entrance a projecting bay on the garden side.   This part houses the double height entry hall, the main staircase and the formal reception and bedroom.  The informal wing to the SW contains a large open plan family room, kitchen and garages at ground floor, highly individual children’s' rooms above and a games/cinema room, gym and swimming pool below.  

There is a separate three-car garage with staff accommodation above and a garden pavilion that is available as a guest annexe.
