Brook House was a former farmhouse bought by the current owners in the late 1990s. It has undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment and extension to create a wonderful country home with excellent family accommodation. It affords any potential buyer the opportunity to acquire a hugely versatile home with superb, free-flowing reception rooms and a fantastic kitchen/breakfast room with Rayburn, Rangemaster cooking range, butler sinks and walk-in larder.
A lovely vaulted garden room opens from the kitchen, with doors to the garden and oak flooring, offering additional dining space and sitting area. There is a sitting room/snug off the kitchen with an open fire, ideal for cosy winter evenings and an elegant drawing room with open fire and doors to the terrace.
There is a utility room, cloakroom and useful boot room. With the potential for separate self-contained annexe, there is an office/playroom with its own entrance, ground floor shower room/WC and door to the English Heritage oak barn with is currently used as a plant room/store room but could easily be converted into additional living space. The roof space above this would be readily useable for a further bedroom and bathroom (there is also lapsed planning consent on a further loft conversion).
On the first floor are four double bedrooms including a double-aspect master bedroom with far-reaching rural views and a well-fitted en-suite bathroom, with roll top bath and walk-in shower, and a dressing room. A family shower room serves two of the other bedrooms with a guest suite, again with double aspect and en-suite bathroom. The flexibility and scope of Brook House is further enhanced by a charming annexe, attached to the cart-lodge with mezzanine bedroom, kitchenette and shower room.
