An enchanting Grade II listed house set within delightful mature gardens
Dating back to 1643 and with later additions, Brook Cottage is a quintessential Grade II listed cottage of immense character and charm. This pretty house is complemented by climbing roses and wisteria and the delightful gardens provide an idyllic setting, further enhanced by the far reaching views.
The ground floor is arranged to provide well-proportioned accommodation with a rustic theme, as one would expect in a property from the era and extreme care has been taken to create a most appealing and fascinating family home. The many interesting and period features include a wealth of exposed beams, quarry tiled flooring that flows throughout much of the ground floor and inglenook fireplaces in the both the sitting room and dining room.
The ground floor accommodation provides excellent living and entertaining space and is arranged to provide a good size sitting room, a separate dining room, a conservatory, a breakfast room and a spacious country style kitchen, fitted with a good range of units and an Aga. There is also a cloakroom/utility area located off the breakfast room. On the upper floor, there are four bedrooms including a master bedroom with an en suite bathroom.
Brook Cottage is set within mature secluded gardens stocked with a wide variety of flowering plants, shrubs and trees, and as its name suggests, contains a brook. The house entrance may be approached through a pedestrian gate that opens onto a brick paved pathway leading over the brook via a rustic timber footbridge. Alternatively, vehicular access is via double leading from the lane to an enclosed yard where there is a stable block and store. A detached barn currently serves as garaging and there is space for parking at the front of this building. A post and rail fenced paddock lies beyond the gardens, separated by a low stone wall.
This property has 1.1 acres of land.
Brook Cottage occupies an enviable position on the fringe of the desirable village of Crockam Hill, renowned for its excellent primary school. Only 3 miles from the property is the market town of Westerham which offers a range of restaurants, boutiques and local shops.
Further more extensive amenities are available in the towns of Sevenoaks, Edenbridge and Oxted, along with mainline stations with good links to London (from 35 minutes).
