Bowers Lane, Guildford, GU4



Constructed at Bowers Lock by the 5th Duke of Sutherland, as a laundry to serve his estate, Bowers Mill was converted into a private house in 1945 and has been in our client’s ownership for over sixty years. 

Approached via double gates, the charm and individuality is immediate. You enter the generous reception hall and from here, access to the kitchen/breakfast room and dining room. From here, you get a glimpse of the stunning grounds. 

The first floor is the sitting room, a room so incredibly unique with an outstanding view of the river and private garden. The sitting room is full of natural light from the windows that encompass the room and benefits from a stunning feature fireplace. 

The two upper floors include six bedrooms, the master benefitting from a pretty en-suite whilst the other bedrooms are serviced from two family bathrooms. 

The grounds are spectacular and offers picturesque views of the river, whether you are on the private island or sitting next to the boathouse. The grounds are well looked after and well established with plants and trees including azaleas and rhododendrons planted by our clients over the years. 

A large field sits to the right of the property and offers a tennis court in need of updating and detached stables with vehicle access. 

Bowers Mill is discreetly tucked away surrounded by open farmland and the River Wey and opposite the Sutton Place Estate yet conveniently situated just to the north of Guildford and five miles south of Woking.

For commuters to London, access to the A3 is close by and there are excellent rail services from both Guildford Station (Waterloo from 35 minutes) and Worplesdon main line station (Waterloo from 30 minutes) which is about three miles.

For daily requirements, Burpham shopping parade and Sainsbury’s is within one mile whilst both Guildford and Woking offer more comprehensive shopping, educational and recreational facilities. There are a number of wonderful walks along the River Wey and neighbouring countryside.
