Full description

Brookmist is a spacious 1970s 4 bedroom, 4 reception property arranged over 3 floors providing ideal family accommodation. It also lends itself to the conversion of the lower ground floor into a self contained 1 bedroom apartment with the remainder developed into bed & breakfast with owners' suite.
The spacious galleried reception hall provides direct access into a large sitting room (29'3" X 17'4") with open fireplace and beamed ceiling, whilst a raised dining area, with open fireplace, easily accommodates a 10 plus cover table.
The large fully fitted kitchen with 4 oven Aga, with access into the garden is an ideal place to congregate.
An opportunity to purchase a good sized family home together with a piece of Wiltshire countryside in a hamlet setting.

5 acres of Wiltshire countryside in a hamlet within easy reach of the market towns of Frome, Westbury and Warminster.
The acreage is arranged as 5 paddocks and stable yard. There is ample parking for a horsebox, horse lorry and numerous vehicles. A large workshop and cart store provide garaging and dry storage space.
The purpose built stable block of 7 stables, tack room, feed store and undercover grooming area,could alternatively be used as workshops, craft centre or, subject to planning, converted into holiday units. Apart from equestrian usage, the land could be cultivated into a smallholding for those seeking a more self sufficient lifestyle.
The stable block roofs lend themselves to the installation of solar power units to further develop self sufficiency.
