The £8.5million Guildford Water Mill property is a beautifully designed home like no other

The village watermill at Shamley Green took years of planning and engineering work to create

A fusion of historic industrial period with 21st century solutions has created a home like no other on the outskirts of Guildford. The Watermill, formerly known as Wonersh Mill, required years of extensive planning, civil engineering and design work – and the result is stunning.

The five-bedroom Grade II listed house is located in the village of Shamley Green, around five miles south of Guildford, and is on the market via Savills with a guide price of £8.5million. It also includes an indoor and outdoor swimming room, a gym, a cinema room and water mill machinery on display.

The entire property is on approximately 7.83 acres of land and just beyond the formal grounds is a large unfenced natural flower meadow which could be used as a pony paddock or even a helicopter landing pad . Alastair Mercer, Residential Sales Manager at Savills in Guildford, said: “The Watermill is quite simply one of the finest examples of engineering and craftsmanship we have seen in rural Surrey. You will leave with a smile on your face. »

The house is securely behind electrically operated white wooden gates which open onto a long gravel driveway to spacious parking and a turning circle. And if all that’s not enough, planning permission was granted in 2015 (although it has now expired) to construct a substantial barn-style building for more storage space or perhaps even an office.
