Constructed of Blue Lias stone elevations with a double Roman tile roof, Westbrook House has a wealth of period features including inglenook fireplaces, flagstone and polished wooden floors in its principle reception rooms, and sash windows to the front façade. Casement windows to the rear indicate its earlier 17th Century character.

It is located above the Sitting Room in the old barn which was incorporated into the domestic accommodation of the property around 10 years ago.

Outside, the gardens are charming and well-maintained with herbaceous borders and lawn to the front, and mature trees and evergreen shrubs to the property boundaries which lend the property privacy and colour. The rear garden, separated from the lane by Lias stone walling, provides an outdoor dining terrace, further lawn areas and a driveway with parking. A single garage adjacent to the barn provides useful storage space.

The property also has the benefit of full Listed Buildings and Planning Consent for a large ground floor extension to the rear of the property to provide a further bathroom, enlarged Utility, separate WC and large open plan kitchen/dining /family room overlooking the rear garden. Permissions were granted in September 2014

Historical note:
Westbrook House is a Grade II Listed property, reputedly the second oldest in the delightful village of North Wootton. Dating from the late 17th Century it was renovated in the late Georgian period, and again in the Victorian period when the property was first sold to Elizabeth Loxton, the village schoolmaster's wife, who bought the property from William Stephen, Earl Temple in 1894. Before this it was farmed by the Clark family for at least two centuries.
