This is one of our Country Houses
Brook Place was constructed around the middle of the 17th Century and its design is good example of Artisan Mannerism. This style of building having been heavily influenced by Flemish architects as you can see from the very attractive Dutch styled gables and brick work here.
The current owners have only very recently completed an extensive refurbishment programme and the property is now beautifully presented. Of particular note is the stunning new kitchen breakfast room which opens out through bi-fold doors onto the sun terrace at the rear. The bathrooms have all been re-fitted with designer fittings and carefully selected lighting enhances the mood throughout the property. It is also worth noting that there is a fully fitted kitchen on the second floor, which mean that this area could be used a self-contained apartment. ‘Behind the scenes’ there has also been extensive work carried out on heating, plumbing and electrics which the owners have guarantees for.
History books tell us that in 1648 there was an Elizabethan house on this site which had been given to Edward Bray by King Charles I as a reward for raising a troop of horses during the English Civil War. That house is thought to have partially burned down in 1648 being replaced by the then owner William Beauchamp who imported the bricks that we see now from Holland by barge.
The central chimney stacks were considered quite innovative at the time and acted as an early form of ‘central’ heating. The dining room still has some wonderful carved panelling believed to have come from a property owned by the Flemish Baroque artist Peter Paul Rubens.
A driveway provides additional parking and leads to the attached double garage. To the rear of the house is a detached building currently used as a home office and behind that there is a large garden store room. The extensive terrace is a real sun trap with a southerly aspect and has been professionally landscaped and planted and there is a working well. The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn interspersed with and bordered by a variety of mature plants and trees. In total, the plot extends to approximately 1.2 acres.
Brook Place can be found just to the West of Chobham village, one of the most popular villages in Surrey. At the centre of The High Street is St Lawrence Church with its very fine Medieval tower. There is a good selection of local shops, some excellent restaurants and The Sun pub is a favourite with the locals. More extensive shopping centres can be found in Guildford and in Woking where there is also a major rail station with very regular and fast links to London Waterloo.
The village also has an excellent rugby club with a large and flourishing junior section and tennis club. There are a number of leisure centres and health clubs in the general area and Chobham golf club is just a few miles away. Anyone with an equestrian interest will be pleased to know that there are a number of stables from which you can ride out onto Chobham Common and you could even try your hand at polo.
