From the moment you set foot on the grounds of Brookside Farm, a profound sense of privacy and serenity embraces you.

Accessed via a picturesque gravel driveway off Forest Road, this property is cocooned within its own expansive land, creating an oasis of tranquillity shielded from the disturbances of modern life. Yet, it remains conveniently close to the delightful village centre, a mere mile away.

Originally constructed in around 1650, the property has undergone a remarkable transformation by its current owners, harmoniously blending timeless character features with contemporary amenities.

The ground floor unveils a magnificent triple-aspect kitchen/dining room, serving as the heart of the home, offering captivating views of the flourishing garden and secluded wildlife ponds. This space extends onto a delightful patio, providing the perfect ambiance for alfresco dining.

At the heart of the fully fitted custom made kitchen, a full size AGA radiates a cosy country kitchen atmosphere. A central island has Corian® worktops and sink with waste disposal unit and houses an integrated dishwasher. This meticulously designed kitchen has ample storage, and a practical pantry, and sets the stage for socializing and entertaining with ample room for a large dining table. Enhanced by Emilceramica porcelain floor tiles the kitchen flows effortlessly into a spacious utility room accessing the front of the property via a stable door.

The original farmhouse sitting room exudes charm with its exposed beams and inviting inglenook fireplace, and connects to the conservatory, where one can bask in the splendid garden views. Completing the ground floor, you'll find a versatile home office/bedroom 5 and a snug featuring a log burner which leads through to a convenient w/c.

Ascending to the first floor, four bedrooms await, with two offering Jack & Jill access to a well-appointed shower room complete with a w/c and twin hand basins. The main bedroom steals the spotlight, boasting a vaulted ceiling and panoramic triple-aspect vistas of the picturesque gardens and the surrounding landscape. Additionally, there is a separate shower room with a w/c, shower, and hand basin to serve the main bedroom and bedroom 4/dressing room.

The mature gardens at Brookside Farm create a botanical haven, teeming with vibrant flora, fauna, and a kaleidoscope of colours. To the rear, with its own perimeter fence, you'll find two attractive wildlife ponds each with its own central island. Beyond the ponds, principally running the most part of the rear boundary is an attractive brook that meanders its way through the grounds. To the left side of the rear garden a bridge leads to an orchard on the south side of the brook. To the front of the property is a home office, two spacious garages, a greenhouse, and a tool shed.

For those with an equestrian passion, the property caters to your every need, featuring three horse stables, three pony stables, a tack room, feed store, hay store, and surrounded by its own 4 paddocks.
