Brooklands is situated nearby the village of Landford. The historic cathedral city of Salisbury is
approximately 10 miles away and has a wide range of shopping, leisure, schooling and recreational facilities. The village has an excellent communications network, with a mainline rail link from both Southampton Parkway and Salisbury to London Waterloo and easy access to the A36 (Salisbury), A338 (Bournemouth) and M27 (Southampton) with regional airports nearby. Landford is in the New Forest National Park which offers excellent walking and riding country with the Hamptworth Golf and Country Club nearby.
Brooklands is a substantial and particularly elegant period house, set in wonderful grounds, which surround the property and includes; mature formal gardens, a walled garden with beautifully protected swimming pool and a large orchard made up of a wide selection of fruit trees. The
river Blackwater runs through the gardens to the south and is bordered by woodland to both sides, under planted with spring bulbs. Approximately 12 acres. The house, which we believe dates from the middle 1800s is an appealing home from all sides and is approached by a sweeping drive,
flanked by trees. In addition there is a separate two bedroom cottage (3248 sq ft), which provides flexible additional accommodation which the current owners use to provide a wonderful summer
entertaining space, which opens out onto the swimming pool. In addition there is a selection of useful outbuildings and garaging which also provides flexibility of use and could include stabling if required. The main house provides well balanced accommodation arranged over three floors. A lot of thought has gone into the layout and design of this home, making the most of its generous proportions and retains much of the original period charm. As you can tell from the photographs and floor plan the accommodation is practical yet flexible and the interior has been extensively refurbished to the highest of standards with feature rooms that include a magnificent master bedroom suite, drawing room, snug room and library, all interlinking and a most impressive kitchen/breakfast room which opens into a wonderful conservatory (31'3 x 18').
Which has also been extensively refurbished and provides very useful additional 3248 sq ft of
accommodation, comprising a flat on the first floor, with a large kitchen/dining room, two bedrooms,
bathroom and double doors to a balcony overlooking the swimming pool. The ground floor provides a
wonderful garden room with high vaulted ceilings and French windows running down both sides, gym, shower room, play room and a self contained area for garden staff, with utility room, WC and sitting area.
A gravelled entrance drive which leads to a parking area and garaging previously mentioned. The grounds which run around the house have been designed as separate rooms, a large area with a parkland feel, meadow, woodland with the very pretty River Blackmore running through, with many wonderful trees, shrubs and bulbs. The walled garden protects a large swimming pool (approx 62' x 25') and surrounded by the most magnificent borders and with a paved area, ideal for summer parties and which leads into the cottage.
