About This Property

A beautiful and immaculately presented Grade II listed detached house. Beautiful gardens, a detached two bedroom annexe and separate paddock. In all approx 1.4 acres

Brooke House is a fine Grade II listed detached property with hamstone elevations, originally dating from the 17th century, with later additions.

This wonderful family home offers an abundance of character and charm throughout, whether it be the mullion windows, exposed beams, oak/limestone flooring or grand fireplaces, the quality and history is exceptional.

The property is entered via a wooden front door, underneath the beautiful boughs of wisteria into a light and airy entrance hall.

To the right hand side is the breakfast room, a wonderful light space with front aspect window and charming window seat, the perfect spot to enjoy a view of the main gardens. Through a set of double doors is the main dining room, featuring solid oak flooring and a hamstone fireplace with wood burner inset. This room provides ample space for more formal dining with windows overlooking the garden.

From the breakfast room a stone archway leads into the kitchen, fitted with a range of wooden wall and base units with wooden work surface, a twin Belfast sink and a dual oil and electric Aga, offering flexibility for winter and summer cooking. There is space for a fridge/freezer and plumbing for a dishwasher. Limestone flooring and a side door leading directly onto a generous paved area.

On the opposite side of the entrance hall is the impressive sitting room, with a magnificent hamstone fireplace being the focal point of the room, oak flooring and windows providing plenty of natural light.

From the sitting room steps lead down to the rear hallway which then opens to a utility room with fitted units, Belfast sink and space for further appliances. In addition there is a useful shower room.

There is also a spacious study, a lovely spot tucked away from the bustle of the main house.
Also accessed from the rear hallway down several steps is a spacious double bedroom, providing a lovely guest or family room which is supported by the shower room.

Upstairs there are four further bedrooms, the master suite being of particular note, again laid with oak flooring and extremely light and spacious, also benefitting from both a separate dressing room with built-in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom.
The further three bedrooms are all double in size, all with exemplary historic mullion windows, one of which bears an inscription on the pane dating to 1875.
These bedrooms are supported by a well appointed shower room.

Overall the property provides spacious and beautifully presented accommodation with outstanding period features throughout and a homely feel.

Situated to the rear of the property the detached annexe is beautifully presented with stone pillars and a part wooden clad exterior. Internally the annexe has vaulted ceilings, floor to ceiling windows and stone flooring.

The accommodation offers two generous and light double bedrooms, an open plan and well appointed kitchen/living/dining space together with a shower room. The annexe is of an exceptional size and could easily be used as a full time residence for a relative or to create income via holiday/long terms lets.

The annexe has it’s own private garden adjoining the paddock which is mostly laid to lawn, with planted trees and a paved path. Within the garden is the former stable which retains original features but offers a modernised office/gym or workshop space, with electric heating.

We understand that mains electricity and water are connected to the property. Drainage to a private septic tank. Oil fired central heating.
