DESCRIPTION This apartment at Brook House offers a buyer not just two bedrooms and a study, but a way of life, away from the everyday hustle and bustle we are accustomed to. Brook House dates back to the 1850's and was originally used as a weekend hunting lodge owned by the Stephenson Clarke family who were instrumentally responsible for Borde Hill gardens and Wakehurst Place, with the gardens of Brook House directly benefiting from the same seed bank. Throughout the gardens, every turn is met with different specimens of plants and trees from throughout the world. The gardens are maintained for the residents, giving you the perfect balance of outdoor space to explore and enjoy, without the demands of looking after it yourself. There is of course a tea lawn and it even houses its own cricket pitch and pavilion, with the wicket believed to be transported directly from Trent Bridge. It is hard to imagine many apartments in Sussex where you can walk out of your front door, into your back garden, take tea on the lawn and hear the sound of willow striking a ball rippled with polite applause.
Brook House was converted in the 1970's into several substantial wings and apartments. This particular apartment has two bedrooms and a study. The accommodation has been extended to incorporate the study which is currently used as a bedroom and the luxury 4m x 3m bathroom with the feel that you have walked into a boutique hotel. The master bedroom has an en suite, parquet flooring and you can still see where the bell system would have been used when this room served originally as the servants' dining room to the house. In the double aspect sitting room, three quarter length windows overlook part of the front aspect and features a wood burner, perfect for those winter months. The Kitchen has the benefit of stained glass windows which are listed by the English Heritage, though Brook House itself isn't listed. From the door by the Kitchen is a private courtyard. Through the oak door of the main house, there is the Great Hall which is available to residents and is often used for parties, gatherings and festive events. There is ample unrestricted parking for all residents at the front on the sweeping drive with Brook House set approximately 300 metres away from Hammingden Lane.
 

LOCATION Brook House is perfectly tucked away off Hammingden Lane and for those seeking rural living there is plenty to choose from. The Bluebell Railway is within 3 miles whilst the picturesque village of Horsted Keynes is even closer where The Green Man is a great place to have a pint in front of the roaring fire. Our favourite bakers can be found a short drive to Ardingly - their apple and cinnamon croissants are out of this world, whilst the food at The Gardeners Arms is excellent. As you head into Lindfield, there is an array of independent shops, restaurants and bars to choose from and a thriving community. The train station at Haywards Heath provides an excellent service to both Brighton and London whilst a short drive takes you to the A/M23. If you need schools near Brook House, there is a choice of West Hoathly C Of E, St Peters C Of E at Ardingly and Lindfield Primary and Blackthorns Primary in Lindfield.
