Middlebrook House is a very attractive and substantial detached country house dating back to circa 1932 with rendered and colour washed elevations. Over the past 40 years it has been subject to sympathetic enlargement and alterations. All of the principal accommodation, which is well proportioned, faces south taking advantage of the lovely views over the gardens and surrounding countryside. There are extensive reception and bedroom accommodation with potential for a guest suite on the second floor.
Under the current ownership since 2007 a whole number of improvements has been carried out including a quality kitchen with oak work tops and extensive appliances (Bosch fan assisted oven, Lamona microwave, Neff induction electric halogen hob, stainless steel cooker hood, wine cooler, Miele dishwasher, Miele chest freezer and Miele fridge), upgrading of the utility room, replacement of the central heating boiler and 2 quality shower rooms. There has also been extensive redecoration and the reception hall features a fine French Versaille pattern oak floor.
The formal gardens feature a heated swimming pool and all weather tennis court. The stable yard provides excellent facilities and the paddocks have direct access onto the bridle path providing superb riding opportunities. There are extensive garaging facilities and the property is approached through impressive remote control double entrance wrought iron gates.
