Shrub's Wood is a Grade II* listed 'Moderne' detached country house in Chalfont St Giles, Buckinghamshire, England. It was designed by Erich Mendelsohn and Serge Chermayeff between 1933 and 1934 for ?? and was an attempt at a Modernist interpretation of the traditional English country house.


Shrubs Wood was originally named Nimmo House, before being renamed by Bridget D'Oyly Carte when she bought the property in 1949.
