Situation Cropthorne is a pleasant village with many period houses including a number of black and white cottages and the ancient Norman parish church of St. Michael. It has a friendly community, a good primary school, two pubs, a modern village hall in extensive playing fields with children’s equipment and play areas. The village stands elevated from the River Avon, which together with the Wychavon Way provides endless opportunities for walking and outdoor pursuits. More extensive facilities for shopping, leisure and education can be found within the Georgian town of Pershore or the riverside town of Evesham, which benefits from expanding retail parks and the ongoing improvements to Evesham Country Park. Excellent opportunities for independent education can be found at RGS and Kings, Worcester, and Cheltenham College and Ladies College.

Description Brook House is a delightful family house, built at the end of the 19th century with substantial Edwardian modifications to present a residence of considerable style. It was fully refurbished between 1997 and 2001 and has been well maintained and enhanced since then by the present owners, who have completely re-wired the property, added double glazing to north facing windows and put in custom-made fitted cupboards and shelving. The present owners have also implemented extensive landscaping to the walled rear garden, which is an absolute delight, with a fabulous cloistered terrace, accessible from the garden room and from the hall, which overlooks the lawn and the colourful herbaceous borders. The property is part timbered and rendered at the front, but has very attractive, leaded mullioned windows in mellow local Cotswold stone to the side and the rear.

With almost 5700 sq ft of accommodation encompassing three reception rooms plus a garden room, a large breakfast kitchen, five double bedrooms, three bathrooms, ample parking and a double garage, Brook House is a truly exceptional family home.

The spacious reception hall is quite stunning with a beautiful polished oak strip floor extending to a large, leaded, mullioned window at the eastern end as well as double glazed windows facing the courtyard. There is a multi-fuel stove set in a brick fireplace with tiled hearth, a door to the cellar, an understairs fitted cupboard and an inner lobby leading out to the cloistered terrace. A very fine, wide staircase with turned balustrades, newel posts and handrail leads to the first floor.

There is a large cloakroom at the other end of the reception hall with secondary glazed leaded light windows, extensive coat hanging space, a corner vanity unit, a walk in cupboard and a separate WC.

The large kitchen/breakfast room has extensive fitted base and wall units in a light-wood veneer finish including glazed display cabinets, an extensive work surface with tiled splash back and a one and a half bowl sink unit with a fitted waste disposal unit and a water filtration system providing filtered water to the kitchen tap. There is a fitted Miele dishwasher, a built-in fridge and a Rangemaster combination cooker with a four-ring gas hob, griddle and hot plate with extractor fan, and twin electric ovens. Double glazed leaded windows overlook the front courtyard. The floor has handmade, terracotta tiles which were added in 2001.
The utility room is entered from the kitchen and has base units with a work surface around the stainless steel sink. There is space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer as well as space for a large fridge/freezer. Full height cupboards provide considerable dry storage. There is an outside door to a paved area and pathway round the property and a door in to the double garage.

The superb drawing room has two large bay stone mullioned leaded light windows, each with window seats, overlooking the south facing garden. This room has decorative cornicing and two ceiling roses. The fireplace, book shelving with cupboards beneath are Georgian style and custom-made and installed in 2001 for the present owners by Christians.

The generously proportioned dual aspect dining room has leaded light windows looking on to the cloistered terrace and glazed double doors leading to the garden room, which has double doors leading on to the cloistered terrace.

The property further benefits from a third substantial reception room, a lovely sitting room, with a large, stone, mullioned leaded window, extensive fitted bookshelves and cupboards, a wonderful wide, open inglenook fireplace with a tiled hearth, an oak overmantle and fitted oak seats on each side of the fireplace.

The handsome, wide oak staircase leads from the reception hall to the first floor gallery landing with a skylight window at the top of the stairway. The skylight was replaced recently with double-glazed, self-cleaning glass. There are two large, double-glazed windows overlooking the front courtyard. The landing gives easy access to all the other rooms.

The master bedroom is a spacious double room with a large bay window affording views over the garden and towards Bredon Hill. The fireplace has a grate with a pretty blue and white tiled surround set in an oak surround with shelves and an oval mirror. The en suite bathroom is of very good size and has a free standing roll top bath with a shower attachment as well as a separate shower cubicle, a useful store cupboard, a WC, bidet and a basin set in a vanity unit with a marble top and storage under.

The adjacent bedroom is used as a splendid dressing room with custom-made fitted wardrobes built and installed by Christians in 2001. This room has a large, stone, leaded mullioned window looking across the garden to Bredon Hill.
There are two further equally spacious bedrooms, one with dual aspect, but both overlooking the garden and facing south to Bredon Hill.

A fifth equally spacious bedroom also has a large leaded, mullioned window with five panels each with its own blind facing east.

The main family bathroom has a panelled bath, pedestal wash basin, corner shower cubicle with MIRA shower, WC and heated towel rail.

The third bathroom has a panelled bath, pedestal wash basin and WC.

There is a large walk-in airing cupboard with fitted shelves and hot water cistern.

Brook House is approached through a pair of wrought iron gates set within a walled, stone flagged courtyard bordered by colourful, well-planted beds and which offers parking for numerous vehicles as well as giving access to the double garage that has a remotely controlled door. From the courtyard a wrought iron gate leads to a further paved area with a garden shed and a greenhouse and to a door in to the utility room. From this area a paved path runs along the east side of the property to the rear garden. The pathway borders the small vegetable plot and herbaceous flower beds.

To the south, the rear garden has an extensive paved area in natural stone along the front of the garden room and the cloistered terrace. Stone steps lead from this paved area between a fish pond to one side and a flower bed with a wonderful magnolia tree on the other side to the lawn, which has colourful, well-planted herbaceous borders along its western edge. A substantial Portuguese laurel hedge on the eastern edge shields the garden from the road. The western edge of the property is bounded by a mellow brick wall providing an attractive backdrop to the varied herbaceous plants and shrubs making the whole rear garden completely private.

Agent’s Note: Some light fittings may be available to a purchaser.
