Believed to date from circa 1780/1800 the property boasts a wealth of period charm with modern convenience and enjoys beautiful gardens, stables and paddocks totaling about 3 acres.

      Approached by a driveway with electric operated gates, Brockett Farm occupies an idyllic rural setting with lovely views and the property offers beautifully presented accommodation arranged over three floors. It includes three reception rooms which enjoy a west or south aspect with most having exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces and log burning stoves. The partially vaulted, triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room with underfloor heating benefits from French doors to three sides opening to the terrace and is fitted with a range of cupboards and integral appliances. Steps lead down from the inner hall to the cellar.

      On the first floor are two bedrooms, an en suite shower room and a family bathroom with a separate shower. The principal bedroom suite enjoys a dressing room and an en suite shower room fitted with white sanitary ware. Off the landing, two separate staircases lead up to two further attic bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes.

      Brockett Farm sits behind a white picket fence with a gate opening to an area of gravel parking. A gravel driveway to the side of the property provides ample parking and access to the garage and stable block with store room, both with electricity and water. The main conifer tree lined garden is beautiful with a paved terrace area, leading to a summerhouse and a glasshouse. The gardens extend to both the east and south comprising three paddocks, a natural pond and a delightful fruit orchard with plum, cherry and apple trees.
