Take a tour of this incredible Grand Designs-worthy home in Surrey

A spectacular modern build in the a rural countryside setting

Coachmans Lodge is a stunning contemporary retreat set in a secluded location in Farnham, Surrey. It's the contemporary architectural style that led us to envision this impressive house staring on Grand Designs. As far as we know it hasn't actually been on the show, just for the record – we can just imagine it.

The thoughtfully designed property to make the most of the surrounding scenery, built by the current owners only 10 years ago.

The modern layout creates the perfect rooms for entertaining – all with a great use of glass and bi-folding doors, enchanting the views over the surrounding lakes with a south-westerly facing gardens.
