Adjoining the kitchen is a superb breakfast room with wide bay window with French doors leading down steps to a further terrace.

Rushbrooks offers a unique opportunity to purchase a substantial country home with good acreage, yet it's in the middle of a very pretty village with good amenities within walking distance. Viewing is highly recommended.

Rushbrooks is approached over a hard driveway via a pair of solid oak gates leading down to a large gravelled parking and turning area. The useful outbuilding comprises a double garage, store, office and games room, it is felt that this building could be used as an office from home or converted to provide further accommodation if required (subject to any necessary consents).

The gardens and grounds lie predominately to the south of the house and feature a series of informal and formal gardens and a small orchard partly enclosed by red brick walls. A small front garden with brick pathway leads to a side garden terrace. The main areas of lawn are framed by flowering and herbaceous borders and they gently slope down towards the river shaded by a fine Cedar tree to a series of water meadows with pond and direct access to the river Brett. The water meadows are bordered by a series of mature trees providing a delightful setting.
