Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Known as Eashing House, this impressive property, which extends to over 5,000 sq ft of internal space, is located in two and a half acres of gardens in a rural location close to the sought-after town of Godalming. Originally designed in the 1960s, the seven-bedroom house was entirely remodelled by the renowned architect Jake Edgley of Edgley Design. Edgley preserved the original distinctive silhouette of the house whilst cladding it in insulation and audaciously wrapping it in stainless steel. The design won the Architects Journal Retrofit Award in 2014 following its completion in 2013.

The house is largely arranged over a single storey. The front door leads to a large entrance hall which opens onto the kitchen and a reception room with full-height glazing overlooking the gardens. Beyond this area is a long bedroom wing which incorporates the seven bedrooms (four of which have en-suite bathrooms) and a family bathroom. The master bedroom is particularly notable, having a dressing room, freestanding bath in the en-suite bathroom, and floor-to-ceiling glazing giving wonderful views across the gardens. There is also a utility room and a wine store on the ground floor. There is a second reception room (or further bedroom suite) on the first floor with a bathroom.

The house is surrounded by extensive gardens. To the front the gardens are laid around a central lawn with a circling driveway which provides parking in addition to the gravelled parking areas. Just inside the front gates there is a hard-surfaced tennis court. At the rear the gardens are mainly laid to lawns with mature trees and well-defined boundaries. The is also a garage block at the property.

The house is located on a small country road close to Godalming and backs onto farmland. Although there are a small number of nearby neighbours, the clever positioning of the house ensures complete privacy.

Despite the rural and tranquil nature of the site, the house lies just over a mile from Godalming historic town centre. Godalming provides excellent shopping, restaurants, pubs and schools. It has a mainline station that runs direct services to London Waterloo in just 49 minutes. Guildford is about five miles to the north and provides further extensive amenities, including restaurants, theatres and recreational facilities. There is close access to the A3 at Milford and Eashing, which in turn connects with the M25 at Wisley (Junction 10), giving access to Heathrow and Gatwick Airports. There is excellent riding and walking countryside on your doorstep. An outstanding range of schools in the area include Charterhouse, Prior’s Field, St. Hilary’s and Aldro on the edge of Godalming, and St Catherine’s at Bramley, Cranleigh School and King Edward’s at Witley.
