7 Bedroom detached house Bagshot Road, Chobham £3,000,000

This Grade II-listed 17th-century manor house offers flexible accommodation and has been extensively refurbished by its current owners. Approximately 1.2 acres. Additional land of approximately 10 acres available by separate negotiation.

An original Elizabethan house with carved panels in the dining room believed to have come from a property owned by 17th-century Flemish Baroque artist Peter Paul Ruben's.

The estate was destroyed by fire, replaced by this Flemish-influenced mid-17th century beauty, with bricks imported by barge from Holland.

The current owners completed an extensive refurbishment of the 5300 sq ft manor house.

There are three beamed reception rooms with open planned fire places and a modern bespoke kitchen/breakfast room which was added extension to the property approx. 5 years ago. This leads out onto a large patio area and manicured gardens of approximately 1.2 acres.

This house originally had seven bedrooms however, the current owners have re configured this space to suit their requirements and have kept four good size bedrooms and four bathrooms while the master has a dressing room and luxurious ensuite bathroom.

On the top floor the owners have created self contained accommodation for use as either a granny/teenager or staff accommodations. This consists of a kitchen, reception room, bathroom and bedroom. Again this can be adapted to suit your requirements.

As you would expect this grand characteristic manor house offers a separate home office and store room with the added benefit of a detached double garage.

The Story
Exquisite Brook Place in Chobham is a magnificent blend of historic features and spectacular, modern-day living. Beautifully and sympathetically renovated by its current owners, the handsome, six to seven-bedroom home, which dates back to 1656 and stands in approximately 1.2 acres of splendid grounds, offers the very best of all worlds, explains its current owner. “This is a wonderful property, which is essentially a beautiful, historic house, with an interior that offers everything you could possibly want from a contemporary home,” she says. “It has been very carefully updated and has all come together very well. It is now an exceptionally comfortable home with very generous and flexible accommodation.”
Designed in an Artisan Mannerist style, the unique house is believed to have been built to replace an Elizabethan country home that once stood on the same site. Among its striking external features are elegant Dutch gables and bricks said to have been brought into the country from the Netherlands by owner William Beauchamp. “My husband just loved the house as soon as he saw it,” the owner recalls. “He had a vision for what he wanted to do with it and over time we were able to realise this.” In careful consultation with conservationists and planners, Brook Place was indeed restored to its former glory inside and out. “There are also some wonderful internal features, such as the carved panels in the master bedroom and dining room. These are thought to have come from a house once owned by Peter Paul Rubens, who was a Flemish Baroque artist. We were very careful to restore and retain all the character in the house, while also ensuring it had every modern amenity we might require.”
Today, the ground floor of Brook Place offers stunning contrast. Its impressive dining room, drawing room and sitting room reveal a wealth of history and period style through exposed beams and inglenook fireplaces, as well as the decorative panelling and leaded windows, while the stunning kitchen, dining and family room is a breath-taking example of 21st-century design. Here, a large island makes an eye-catching centre-piece and bi-folding doors can be pulled right back on to the terrace. The ground floor also features a study, cloakroom, storeroom and rear hallway and laundry room. “It all works incredibly well together, making this a very easy place to live and a great house for entertaining in the summer or winter,” she admits.
The first floor of the property has been reconfigured to create a very spacious family bathroom, with stylish egg bath, together with a guest suite opening on to a terrace and a sumptuous master suite. “This is wonderful – we have a large bedroom; beautiful en suite bathroom, with another freestanding bath and walk-in shower, and dressing room, which could easily be transformed back into an additional bedroom should someone require it.” Two more bedrooms can be found on the floor above, together with another chic bathroom and a fitted kitchen, both of which could also become bedrooms again should that suit the needs of the new owners. “This whole house is incredibly versatile,” she observes. “This upper floor could be ideal for a relative seeking self-contained space but could equally provide more bedrooms instead.”
Also bringing flexibility is the detached building currently used as an office. Ideal for anyone wishing to be able to work from home, it could also be transformed into extra leisure or entertaining space. “If someone wished to have a swimming pool installed, for example, it could become a changing room and gym.” A large garden storeroom holds further potential and the space offered by the magnificent grounds could also lend itself to a variety of uses. “The grounds here are so beautiful,” she adds. “We have so enjoyed spending time outside in the sunshine and looking out over the formal gardens.”
The Chobham setting of the period house has also brought them great pleasure. They have enjoyed access to the 1,620-acre common, which is a nature reserve and popular place for local residents to walk. “There is so much greenery around here and yet it is so easy to reach the motorways and to travel into London by road or rail,” she agrees. “We have also enjoyed being close to Guildford and Woking, as well as Ascot and Sunningdale.” The couple, who are now moving for family reasons, admit they will miss their truly individual home. “It has been a lovely place to live and we have been very happy here,” she adds.
Brook Place is set in approximately 1.2 acres of impressive, landscaped grounds, including elegant, formal areas, manicured lawns, and mature trees and shrubs. The south-facing terrace makes a great entertaining space. Off-road parking is available on the drive and there is also a double garage. Also included in the grounds are a detached home office and a separate storage building.
