This beautiful property really is a joy to behold from the minute you turn in from the lane. Entering down the long driveway, flanked by an attractive copse on one side and the paddock to the other, the house moves into view and greets you as you approach. With the lane behind and the brook to the front, the aptly named Brook House enjoys a unique setting and approach from the parking area.
Crossing the burbling brook by way of a sturdy bridge, the house itself enjoys attractive elevations of brick under a pitched tiled roof and has spacious and versatile accommodation set over two floors.
Having undergone extensive extension and refurbishment by the current owners during their tenure, Brook House it perfectly set to accommodate family life. On the ground floor, the heart of the home is the impressive triple aspect kitchen/dining room, set on the easterly side of the property with bifold doors straight out onto the gardens.
The eye catching slate floor picks up on the light flooding in beautifully and sets the tone for the room, and is continued through into the adjacent boot room. To the northern wall, an open fireplace provides a focal point, ideal as the nights draw in. The kitchen area is well thought out and a joy to work in, with granite worktops set above traditional shaker style units. There are a range of quality appliances including a stunning electric Aga, separate Neff oven and Siemens integrated dishwasher, along with space and connection for a large American style fridge/Freezer. Set into the worktop is a Franke sink with a smaller butler sink built into the island.
Off the kitchen/diner is a useful utility room with a door outside and space under a worktop for the domestic appliances.
Moving back through the boot room, there is a well appointed downstairs shower room and a door though into the reception hall. This lovely dual aspect room is what greets you upon entry and houses a fireplace with inset stove and exposed wooden floorboards.
The sitting room is large and spacious and has French doors out onto a patio and gardens. Again, the eye is drawn to the wonderful fireplace set against one wall, with inset stove and stone hearth.
Rising to the first floor, central landing provides access to all the bedrooms and bathrooms and houses a large airing cupboard, along with a further storage cupboard. Three of the 5 bedrooms are en suite and enjoy a superb elevated aspect out across the gardens and grounds.
The dual aspect master bedroom has a fitted wardrobe and a well appointed en suite bathroom, complete with his and hers sinks.
Bedrooms 2, 3 and 4 are spacious doubles and enjoy the fantastic rural aspect out of their windows. Both bedrooms 2 and 4 have en suites and there is ample space for another in bedroom 3 should the news owners wish.
The 5th bedroom is a large single, currently utilised as a office. The current owners have high speed broadband through Wessex Internet.
This superb property is set in just under 5 acres and is surrounded by open fields and countryside. Next to the house is a patio area which in turn leads across a lawn flanked by the brook to a woodland garden. To the front of the house, a sizable decked area which spans the brook, offering superb views out across the surrounding farmland.
The long driveway culminates in a spacious parking area set in front of a double garage with an up and over door. A bridge from the parking areas spans the brook, giving access to the house.
The majority of the acreage is fenced as a paddock, currently used as grazing and can be separately accessed further down the lane by way of a gate. The paddock has an open wooden structure, ideal as a field shelter.
There is a yard accessed via a gate from the parking area which houses a large workshop with light and power and 3 timber stables.
