Beechlands, which is now in need of updating, is a beautiful Chown house, built we understand in the 1920s, of red brick with exposed timbers under a thatched roof, with internal exposed beams, leaded light windows and oak joinery. A solid oak front door leads to the panelled entrance hall which has a wood burning stove in an inglenook fireplace with side seats. From the hall a door and archway lead to the sitting room, an impressive triple aspect room with beamed ceiling, brick fireplace with log burner, bay window to one end and doors to the loggia and a lovely outlook over the garden and fields to distant hills. Off the hall is a cloakroom with separate wc and former shower, and a further door leads to the rear garden. There is an unusually shaped study, a family room with large bay overlooking the front and a dining room which leads to the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a range of storage cupboards and drawers and space for appliances and has a door to the utility room off which is a boot room with door to the garden. From the hall, a turning oak staircase rises to the galleried landing which has a large window with lovely views and doors to a south facing balcony. There is a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, second bedroom with en suite bathroom, 2 further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Mains water, gas and electricity. Private cesspit drainage.
Beechlands is situated in a semi-rural location, about a mile from a parade of shops in East Horsley which also has a mainline station with trains to Waterloo taking about 50 minutes. The county town of Guildford is about 7.3 miles distant and has a wide range of shopping, social, educational and recreational amenities as well as a mainline station with trains to Waterloo in 38 minutes. The A3 can be accessed at Ockham for links to the south coast, central London and via the M25 to Heathrow and Gatwick Airports. The area is surrounded by beautiful walking countryside, notably at Sheapleas and Ranmore Common.
Beechlands has a right of way over a private driveway which leads to the gravelled drive in front of the house providing parking for numerous cars. There is a detached brick built 5-car garage with power and light, with further parking area in front. The gardens are magnificent feature, with a crazy paved terrace with pond in front of the covered entrance loggia, bordered by flower beds. There are areas of formal lawn to the front and rear of the house interspersed by several mature fruit trees. From the rear lawn a low boundary hedge allows beautiful views over adjoining fields and a polo field to distant hills. The remainder of the grounds have areas of rough grass with spring flowers, a wide variety of mature trees and wilder areas with shrubs and trees. There are two gardens, an implement store and a greenhouse. There is also a separate access in one corner from Park Horsley. In all about 4 acres.
