A picturesque family house.
The Brew House has been a much loved family home for the past 30 years for our clients. They are only the second owners in almost 50 years which is testament to the appeal of this lovely house. Originally built in the 16th century, reputedly for a wealthy merchant, it later became The Brew House, brewing ale for local establishments. Pevsner, in his book, Buildings of England, described the Brew House as “quite impressive”. The 18th century water tower (also Grade II listed as a dovecote) still stands in the garden, currently used as a wine store. The house has had various additions over the years, most notably the fabulous kitchen extension added in 1997 and designed by the highly regarded architect, Ian Adam-Smith.These light filled vaulted 'rooms' have become the heart of the home, offering various different areas and include a large Clearview stove at the gable end. The very atmospheric drawing room features another Clearview stove that sits within the inglenook. Ceiling heights are very generous for a house of this age and this triple aspect room with westerly facing window seat provides a wonderfulcontrast to the kitchen area. A connecting dining room with door to the terrace and serving hatch to the kitchen complete the downstairs accommodation.The first and second floors provide a good balance of bedrooms and bathrooms with the two bedrooms and sitting area on the second floor ideal for teenagers.The Brew House is a fine example of a historic house, full of character with loads of storage space, perfectly located to the south of Guildford in the friendly hamlet of Eashing Park which comprises four other properties.The Brew House is approached off its access drive into its private gravelled driveway with manicured yew hedging on either side. The driveway terminates to the front of the house with a large turning area. The formal gardens lie principally on the southern and western sides of the house; a large southfacing paved area providing a glorious private spot for al fresco dining. A productive vegetable and herb garden with greenhouse lie to the east along with a newly completed dry garden and potting / DIY shed with electricity.On the western boundary is a lightly wooded copse area which hides a long overgrown ancient subterranean ice house.Attached to the house is the double garage with loft storage above. There is driveway parking for multiple vehicles. The previously mentioned dovecot /water tower is currently used as a very efficient wine cellar. A family of little owls inhabits the roof void every year.
The ancient and historic hamlets of Upper and Lower Eashing, in the parish of Shackleford, straddle the River Wey, 6 miles south of Guildford, and are notable for the number of listed historic buildings in the area. Records of a mill in Eashing date from the Domesday Book and it has been used to produce flour, paper and flock.The National Trust river bridge at Eashing is believed to have been built by the monks of Waverley Abbey in the 13th century. The popular Stag on the River pub is close by.Eashing enjoys a particularly convenient situation, having ready access to the A3 between London and the South Coast, and via the M25 at Wisley, also links to Heathrow and Gatwick airports. Local facilities include a wonderful garage with shop in Lower Eashing, and an excellent farm shop at Milford, less than a mile away. A greater choice of shopping, banks, and restaurants is available at Godalming, whilst Guildford offers a full range of High Street outlets, in addition to leisure, sporting and cultural amenities.There is an outstanding selection of schools in the area, including Aldro, St Hilary's, King Edward's, Waverley Abbey, Tilford & Rodborough in Witley. Charterhouse, Priors Field, Tormead, St Catherine's, Cranleigh, Royal Grammar and Guildford High amongst many others. Acorns Nursery and St Mary's primary school, both in Shackleford, have excellent reputations
