DESCRIPTION The historic Oakhill Brewery was founded in 1767, and the site remained in use as a brewery until it finally closed in 1997. This sensitive redevelopment of the existing buildings breathes new life into the site, providing 25 beautiful new homes located in the very heart of Oakhill village. Excellent communal facilities include a private gym, swimming pool and landscaped communal gardens for the residents' enjoyment. Most of the properties have been appropriately named after brewing terms.
