The entry in Pevsner's Surrey (with Ian Nairn and Bridget Cherry, 1971) reads:

VODIN, on Pyrford Common, now Little Court, fronting Old Woking Road. Dated 1902 with stable buildings of 1904, forming a courtyard which, although quite informal, is crisp and positive because of Voysey's architectural integrity and respect for mass and solidity. That none of his imitators had this can be seen from the other houses around. The house itself is a single long block with a steep roof (tile instead of Voysey’s favourite slates), the entrance door in an arched recess balanced by a gable, the corners with sloping buttresses, the garden without any accent.
