Property Description

Full description

A magnificently presented detached family home situated in a stunning leafy plot of 0.683 of an acre (0.277 HA) within the grounds of former Brockley Hall.
This spacious (approx. 4,151 sq ft) five bedroomed house has been cleverly extended and modernised in recent years by the current owners to create an exceptionally comfortable and high specification family home, with the benefit of a self-contained annex to one end.
The house is approached across a gravel driveway which is flanked by mature landscaped gardens and several impressive oak and beech trees. The driveway provides access to a double garage with ample hardstanding to the front.

Summary Of Accommodation - The front door opens into an impressive reception hall with an open tread bespoke built oak staircase to one end leading to a galleried landing at first floor. An engineered oak floor compliments the stairwell and provides a light and airy feeling throughout.
The reception hall includes a cloaks cupboard and separate wc. Double doors to either side of the reception hall open into the two principle reception rooms. The lounge enjoys an open aspect overlooking the south westerly facing rear garden with floor to ceiling sliding doors opening onto the garden.
Undoubtedly one of the main features of the house is the magnificent and spacious open plan kitchen/living space which overlooks the front and rear gardens, and provides for perfect modern day family living and social gatherings. Full height bi-folding doors to one side open onto a raised sun deck ideal for external dining.

Throughout the family/dining area is underfloor heating that extends into the study and much of the kitchen. The two areas are cleverly divided by a mixture of travertine tiles and engineered oak flooring. The soft seating area to one end includes a contemporary style wood burning stove. The kitchen has a comprehensive range of white base and wall units capped with granite work surfaces as well as a large central island unit which includes a breakfast bar to one side.
The kitchen units include a range of built in stainless steel appliances to include Neff dishwasher, 5 ring Neff gas hob, Neff double oven with separate grill, and an American style fridge freezer. There is a study reached off the kitchen /family room as well as a short flight of steps leading to a sizeable utility/laundry room, with a further cloakroom and airing cupboard.
An internal door provides access to the double garage which includes a belfast sink. A door within the utility room also provides external access to the sun deck and garden.

A large galleried landing leads to a master bedroom which overlooks the rear garden and has an ensuite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms two of which have ensuite bathrooms and two with an interconnecting door. There is also a family bathroom with separate shower. It should be noted that three bedrooms benefit from air conditioning.
Adjoining the house and accessed by its own front door is an entirely self-contained one bedroom annex ideal for an au pair or dependant relative. The annex includes a bathroom and kitchen.
Externally the house enjoys magnificent landscaped gardens which wrap around the house offering total privacy and seclusion. The rear garden (approx. 58.0m x 27.0m) is bordered by a mature 12.0 ft high hedge line and has a raised split level timber sun deck with dining area (6.3m x 4.0m) leading to the rear lawn. The garden includes a covered BBQ area, two greenhouses, a freestanding shed and a log store. The front lawned garden is split by the gravel driveway and includes an area of ornamental box hedging with separate side path leading to the annex.
