Perefrith Barn lies within the grounds of Pirbright Manor which was the site of the ancient Manor House of Perefrith mentioned in the Domesday Book as being held by Chertsey Abbey and administered from their Manor at Coulsdon.
Sometime after the dissolution of the monasteries, Pirbright Manor was re-built, probably in the 17th Century, with later additions in the 18th and 19th Century.
It was first a private estate, then a school, Fair Dene, and latterly was converted to luxury period houses.
Perefrith Barn is believed to date from the late 16th Century (around 1575) and is a fine example of a gabled aisled barn with five bays exhibiting the original roof timbers of the Queenpost roof with principal rafters and clasped purlins on substantial replacement wall posts.
The property enjoys delightful views onto neighbouring farmland and is impressively set betwixt its own open field of about three quarters of an acre and delightful secluded landscaped gardens of about 0.6 of an acre.
