An exceptional country estate, superbly located and enjoying far reaching views

Location

The Rockwood Estate occupies a most attractive and private situation on the edge of Brook village, located some five miles south of Godalming, Brook is in many ways the quintessential English hamlet with its pub, cricket green and community hall supporting the annual village fête and a range of activities and special interest groups, including the tennis and cricket clubs.

Local amenities are to be found at Milford and include a convenience store and a farm shop providing for daily needs. A more extensive range of services is available at Godalming, Witley and Haslemere, all of which have main line stations with good services to London Waterloo, with journey times of about 46 minutes from Godalming. Ten miles to the north, Guildford provides the full range of high street shopping, leisure and cultural activities and its own main line station. The A3 at Milford provides direct access to London and the coast, connecting with the M25, at Wisley, for the airports and the national motorway network.

There is an excellent choice of schools in the area, including Highfield, King Edward’s, Aldro, St Catherine’s and Charterhouse among many others.

Environmentally, the area has much to offer, being in the heart of the Surrey Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Great Landscape Value with all the protection that implies. Recreational opportunities include golf at several clubs within easy reach, along with comprehensive sport and leisure centres at Haslemere, Godalming and Guildford. There is also racing and flying at Goodwood and sailing at Chichester Harbour. In addition, the surrounding countryside offers excellent walking, cycling and riding directly from the house with The Greensand Way long distance path passing nearby.

Description

Rockwood is a commanding country house in a highly regarded location with far reaching views, which has been subject to a full refurbishment and enlargement project.

The main house which is believed to have been built in 1910 in the very traditional Arts and Crafts style has been subject to a full refurbishment and extension project, now comprising c.26.000 sq ft of accommodation. Many of the original period features have been retained, which work brilliantly when combined with the more contemporary additions. The accommodation is very well proportioned and is laid out over four floors.

The leisure facilities are hugely impressive and include a cinema room, indoor pool complex and spa, outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, all weather sports pitch. There is generous garaging space.

Rockwood has ample secondary accommodation. Firstly, a gate lodge which has planning permission to turn the existing two dwellings into a larger single dwelling. This property has its own dedicated area within the grounds and could be used as guest lodge or staff quarters. An application has also been submitted and approved to demolish the existing pool house at Rockwood and build a new very contemporary dwelling on site, which would make an ideal guest space. The property would increase its footprint by 37%, with a contemporary glass design to maximise views across the Surrey Hills. The grass roof would allow it to blend into it’s surroundings with minimal impact.

The setting is particularly noteworthy. The house occupies and elevated position on the edge of the highly sought after Brook village, and is surrounded by 87 acres of parkland grounds. The expansive terrace and balcony, both on the southern façade of the house take full advantage of the private setting, looking out over the gardens, the heli-pad, the lake and views beyond.

More land is available.

Square Footage: 26,000 sq ft
