Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An impressive Grade II listed gentleman's residence offering spacious 4 bedroom living accommodation, 5 reception rooms, garage with alternative use potential (STP) and gardens, in all about 1/3 of an acre.

This charming period property is believed to date back in parts to the 13th century with 18th century additions. The property has a distinct regency feel to it and boasts all the character features you would expect from a property of this era, namely high ceilings, grand fireplaces, decorative archways and recesses to name but a few. Constructed of rendered stone elevations under a pitch tiled roof the accommodation briefly comprises an impressive entrance hall with steps down to a cloakroom and a charming staircase gives access to the first floor. The hallway provides access to all principle reception rooms, two of which have fantastic period fireplaces and all have full-length sash windows. A door from the sitting room leads to the kitchen which is fitted with a modern range of solid wood base units together with a number of integral appliances. A stable door from the kitchen lead out to a conservatory enjoying views of the rear gardens and a second door gives access to a garden room. In addition on this floor is a utility, downstairs WC (in need of complete renovation) and a store room.

On the first floor are four double bedrooms with the master enjoying a generous en-suite bathroom. The guest bedroom also has an en-suite shower room with the remaining rooms being serviced by a well-equipped family bathroom.

Outside the property has ample parking to the front, a double garage/workshop with alternative use potential (STP) and mature gardens to the rear all of which are enclosed within attractive stone walling.

Brooklands is situated more or less in the centre of the village of Cannington, which has the benefit of a number of facilities including a healthcare centre, post office and store, inns, church, primary school and Cannington College. The village lies approximately 3 miles west of the town of Bridgwater, and west again from the village are the Quantock Hills. These hills are the first area designated of being of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the country and offer opportunities for walking, riding and other rural pursuits. Bridgwater has the benefit of a number of facilities, including multiple shopping and schooling and access to the M5 motorway at Junctions 23 and 24. The motorway connects to Taunton, the county town which lies to the south and can be reached at Junction 25.

The property is approached off Church Path being a no through road and only giving access to Brooklands, The Old Vicarage and the Church Yard. You approach the property through a set of wrought iron gates to a tarmacadam parking and turning area which leads to a detached double garage and store rooms. The double garage is of block elevations with timber clad under a pitched tiled roof currently containing two double garages and workshop with storage over. Planning consent has been granted to convert the garages to a two bedroom dwelling in the past. Although has now lapsed it is likely that it would be granted again but this cannot be guaranteed. The front parking area is enclosed by attractive stone walling with herbaceous borders and a set of steps to the side lead up to a enclosed side garden. Here there is a small patio seating area enclosed within attractive box hedging and stone walling and beyond is an established garden containing mature trees, shrubs and bushes. The primary gardens lie to the rear of the property which are south facing and where a raised timber decking area can be found adjoining the conservatory, ideal for alfresco dining and summer entertaining. Further afield is a fantastic array of mature shrubs, trees and bushes with gravelled paths meandering through and two sections of lawn. Also within the rear gardens is a small summer house. The gardens are a particular feature to the property which can only be fully appreciated when viewed.
