Description

Escape the hustle and bustle and step back in time at Brook Cottage. This most charming, Grade II listed cottage is believed to date back to Elizabethan times, in part, with later extensions and it exudes character. It occupies an equally enticing country garden setting, and in addition to the cottage there is a recently re-constructed detached 2 bedroom annexe, opening up superb possibilities for multi-occupancy.

Terracotta tiled and exposed brick floors.

Drop latch timber doors

Exposed beams including original old ships beams, most pronounced in the vaulted pitched ceilings on the first floor

Outside

The setting of the property is particularly special. As the name suggests, there are two brooks that converge on the property, creating a tranquil acoustic backdrop of water in motion. The immaculately maintained gardens wrap around the house and comprise areas of lawn with beautifully stocked beds and borders, paved seating and dining terraces, a man-made pond with decked terrace and ornamental trees. Brick, paved and stepping stone pathways weave around the house and gardens. Delightful little footbridges jump over the streams at various points leading to the remainder of the grounds which include a small paddock / orchard and woodland. There are various sheds and a greenhouse in the grounds.

There is a block paved driveway, which has parking for up to 4 cars.
