Description

Description
The Brow is a very attractive house built in 1820, with earlier origins, and as stated in the Grade II Listing was, "built to exploit a picturesque, riverside location". It is in a quite spectacular position with incredible south-westerly views over the valley.

The house was home to Charles Darwin’s sister, Marianne Parker, and Charles spent many weekends and holidays at The Brow.

The front door is set within an enclosed porch and opens into a hall with the principal reception rooms to either side being an elegant drawing room, a dining room and study. They are lovely rooms, full of character with wooden floors, full height windows views over the grounds and beyond. The family kitchen has a tiled floor and French doors to the garden and an Aga. There are steps down from the hall to a play room, also offering access to the garden and the vaulted cellar provides useful storage. There is also a back kitchen/utility room and boot room.

The first floor is approached via stairs from the hall and has 7 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, 3 of which are en suite.

The coach house (Low Brow)
Low brow is a impressive contemporary conversion of the former coach house, designed by internationally renowned architect, Alex Michaelis. It has again been designed around the spectacular view and includes open plan living space with a hall sitting room and kitchen, 2 ground floor en suite bedrooms and on the first floor a study/bedroom and a bedroom with en suite bathroom. Outside is a terrace ideal for dining, entertaining and sunbathing.

Gardens and grounds
There are over 5 acres of part wooded gardens and grounds including a kitchen garden, an area known as the "edible forest", extensive lawns and direct access to both the village amenities and beautiful walks beside the River Dee.
