Delightful period house, together with a separate annexe, all set in circa 3.69 acres

Brock Hill Cottage is a captivating country house offering a rare opportunity for those seeking a property of much character with the additional benefit of ancillary accommodation in the form of a detached annexe. The gardens back onto fields and present a picturesque setting for the house, with the verandah taking full advantage of this outlook and providing superb relaxation space.

The house offers bright and elegant living space, combining period character with modern-day living to create a most appealing family home. The ground floor is arranged around an elegant reception hall, with its feature fireplace and stripped wooden floor, and includes a 29’8” drawing room with direct access out to the verandah, a good size dining room and a spacious study with an adjoining store room; this area could easily be reconfigured to suit personal requirements.

The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of units, Corian worksurfaces and appliances including a Miele ceramic hob, double oven and dishwasher, a Liebherr fridge/freezer and an Aeg microwave and there is an adjoining larder, with a door to the integral garage.

Situated on the first floor is the principal suite comprising a dual aspect bedroom with wonderful views over fields, an en suite dressing room and a recently fitted en suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom on this floor.

This property has 3.69 acres of land.

To the front, double electrically operated gates open onto a gravelled parking area where access may be gained to the detached annexe and two garages. The annexe comprises a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and en suite bathroom and offers a fantastic opportunity for inter-generational living or could provide a useful income stream.

To the rear of the main house, the beautifully tended south-facing garden is undoubtedly a fine feature of the property and enjoys a high degree of seclusion and privacy. The verandah and an adjoining arbour provide excellent 'al fresco' dining and relaxation space and overlook the lawned garden with its flower/rose beds providing splashes of colour. Positioned in one corner is an 'all weather' tennis court and to one side, behind clipped privet hedging, there is a vegetable garden with a greenhouse and timber shed.
