OWNERS COMMENTS
"In many ways ‘Brimley” has been the ideal home for us over the past 27 years. It has provided a comfortable and stable place for our family to grow up in with plenty of room for parties and celebrations. The studio has provided an ideal space for a professional office when we worked from home. We will miss the local country walks as well as easy access to shops, schools and other amenities."

GROUND FLOOR
The front door is located to the side of the property and is accessed through the double car port. Upon entering the entrance hall you immediately notice how light and airy the property is. There is a split level staircase leading to the first floor with a handy storage cupboard beneath and doors to each of the principal rooms. The superbly appointed sitting room measures a comfortable 15ft 1 by 11ft 6 and benefits from a feature box bay window to the front aspect. There is an open fire place making this a wonderfully cosy room in the winter months. The dining room also has a box bay window to the south side of the property, with plenty of space for a large dining table, and side board. This versatile room could also make an ideal family room or second lounge if desired. To the rear of the property, the Kitchen/Breakfast Room enjoys a wonderful double aspect with sliding patio doors that open out onto a delightful sun patio. The kitchen comprises a range of wall mounted storage cupboards with low level base units and drawers to match, a rolled top work surface and a one and half bowl stainless steel sink with mixer tap and drainer. Fitted appliances include an eye level double electric oven with a separate four ring gas hob. There is space and plumbing for a dishwasher and also space for a free standing fridge freezer. The utility is a sizable room, ideal for kicking off muddy boots after being out in the garden. There is ample built in storage cupboards, a separate sink, low level space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and a door leading to a downstairs shower room. Also on the ground floor, the Study could make a fifth bedroom if required.

FIRST FLOOR
The first floor accommodates four generously sized bedrooms with the master benefiting from a wonderfully bright and airy double aspect. There is a refitted bathroom that has been mostly tiled, with a panel bath, low level W/C and a wash hand basin and a separate shower room, fitted with similar sanitary ware that incorporates a walk in shower cubicle. A loft hatch provides access to a notably larger than average roof space via a drop down ladder. Ideal for storage.

STUDIO
Completely separate to the main house this substantial studio would make the ideal annex for those looking to accommodate an elderly relative or even an older teenager. With three principal rooms, a W/C and a Kitchenette this versatile space could even have the potential to create a holiday let (subject to the relevant permissions.)


OUTSIDE
Approached via a no-through road and tucked away from sight, Brimley is accessed over a sizable driveway providing ample parking for cars, or a motor home. The front garden is completely private and enclosed by a mixture of mature evergreen trees putting a good distance between the property and Botley road. A double Car Port enables covered parking for two, with a large workshop at the rear that has both power and lighting connected. The rear of the property is accessed through a side gate with a wonderfully appointed sun patio to the left hand elevation. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn, with an additional corridor of land leading to some well maintained vegetable plots. The over all plot size is estimated at just over 0.30 of an acre.
