Full property description

  • An enchanting piece of history which could be yours to call home.

    The Mill House dates in part from 1600 with later 18th and 19th century additions and was a working water mill until 1939. The working parts were later restored, for historical interest and they now form an unusual and fascinating integral feature of the property.

    Accommodation of The Mill House is laid out over three levels and benefits from an absolute wealth of original period features, including stone floors, exposed structural timber, leaded windows and three impressive fireplaces.

    The front door opens into a large entrance hall, with beamed ceiling, flagstone floor and an impressive inglenook fireplace.
    From the hall a cloakroom and we and a short passage leads through to a heavily beamed dining room which continues to the kitchen/breakfast room.

    On the other side of the hall the stone-floored and heavily beamed sitting room is rendered the more atmospheric, by the presence of the large cogs and gears of the mill machinery and fireplace. Beyond the sitting room, an inner hall accommodates the huge water wheel, bearing the name of the manufactures Brooks and Shoebridge of Guildford. A further reception which is currently a cinema room completes the ground floor accommodation.

    Stairs rise around the mill wheel to the first floor, where there is an attractive drawing room with the top workings of the mill. Above this drawing room, a mezzanine floor, which was probably the former grain store, is arranged as a large work room, with an adjacent study. Bedroom accommodation comprises the generously proportioned master bedroom, with en suite bath and shower room, a guest room with with en suite bathroom and two further bedrooms which are served by the family bathroom. Bespoke joinery provides built in wardrobes and storage throughout.


    Gardens and Grounds

    The Mill House is approached from the lane over a short drive to a cast iron electric gate opening onto a gravel forecourt and turning area with space for several cars. Adjoining the forecourt is an impressive Elizabethan barn which sit opposite the main house entrance. This is currently used as a large office space with a phenomenal commute. It would make a marvellous entertaining space or suit a variety of other uses according to individual needs. In addition to a two bay carport and greenhouse there is also a former cow barn which provides which has excellent potential for secondary accommodation subject to planning.


    Lying mainly to the west and south of the house, the immaculately landscaped grounds include a full width stone paved terrace with neatly clipped miniature box hedges and topiary, as well as a variety of shrub and flower borders. Beyond the terrace to the west, the level lawn extends to the boundary with a backdrop of mature trees. To the south, the former mill pond and stream and waterfall creates an attractive focal point which is surrounded by areas of wild garden and a range of spring flowers and mature shrubs and trees to provide year-round colour and interest.

    Pirbright

    The Mill House is set in a delightful rural position on the edge of the village, yet at the same time very accessible to London. Pirbright is the archetypal English village with attractive properties surrounding the village green with a duck pond, 2 public houses, a primary school and renowned butcher. The surrounding countryside has excellent walking with many miles of bridleways which can easily be accessed from the property. The neighbouring towns of Guildford and Woking are approximately 6 miles away respectively and offer more comprehensive educational, recreational and shopping facilities.

    The area is well served for road connections including the A3 at Guildford and the M3 (Junction 3) at Bagshot providing access to the national motorway network, London and the international airports of Heathrow, Gatwick and Southampton. The property is located close to many golf courses including West Hill, Worplesdon and Woking with further sporting facilities in the area such as tennis clubs at Worplesdon, Hook Heath in Woking as well as racing at Ascot, Windsor and Sandown Park. There are a number of schools catering for all ages, all within a relatively short driving distance including The Royal Grammar School, Guildford High School, Tormead and Lanesborough in Guildford; Halstead preparatory, St Andrews and Hoe Bridge in Woking and Rydes Hill in Worplesdon and Pirbright Primary School.

    Directions and postcode GU24 0BN (please be aware that certain satellite navigations take you too far down Mill Lane).

    From London, take the M3 west, crossing over the M25 and exiting at Junction 3. At the roundabout, take the first exit on to the A322 signposted to Woking and Lightwater, staying on the A322 for approximately 5 miles until reaching the traffic lights just beyond Brookwood Bridge. Proceed straight over at the lights and under the railway bridge and turn right into Cemetery Pales proceeding all the way to the village green in Pirbright.
