Osbrooks is a wonderful listed manor house in Surrey dating back to the 11th century. The current building is believed to have originally been a 15th century hall, and later a smoke bay house with a wing dating back to the late 16th century and subsequent additions added in the mid-17th century. A further significant addition was constructed in the early 20th century by Sir Edward Lutyens.
