    About this property

    • Brantham Place is a substantial family home part of which was once used as the coach house and stable for an Edwardian country house which once stood on the site. It has since been transformed into an extensive family home in the Edwardian Arts and Crafts style. Positioned in the middle of established gardens, spring flower vistas (snowdrops, daffodils, bluebells), park-style walks and mature woodland, the property has beautiful far-reaching views towards the Stour Estuary and surrounding countryside.

      The property has a main house with a large self-contained annexe linked on both floors and if required could be utilised as one house with minimal alterations. The oak windows have been designed to fit in with the oak windows of the original house. The ground floor of the main property comprises a large
      entrance hall opening into a music room and onto a drawing room with wood burning stove in an inglenook fireplace. French windows open westwards onto the garden patio. A large double-aspect dining room in a brick-built conservatory looks westward over the patio and lawns. The large study is off the second hallway and opens onto the courtyard garden through French windows. There is also a snug and a cloakroom off the main hallway. A large kitchen/ breakfast room is fitted with a range cooker, walk-in larder and French windows opening onto the courtyard garden and has views of the gardens and Stour Estuary. A spacious utility room has access to a second downstairs cloakroom and provides access to both the adjoining annexe and to the garden patio.

      Upstairs there is a double aspect principal bedroom suite with lovely views from every window. The suite incorporates a large dressing room with built-in wardrobes and a large en-suite bathroom. The East Wing comprises a second double bedroom with beautifully restored arched oak windows giving views of the Church and gardens. This wing has a private bathroom and built-in wardrobe. The North Wing features three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom together with large built-in storage cupboards on the landing and ladder access to a very large loft space.

      Annexe
      The spacious annexe added in 2002 was built as a self-contained South Wing in the same style as the oldest part of the house and is entered through its own front door or through the utility room of the main house. It consists of a large kitchen/breakfast room, well-proportioned dining room, a large living room and a downstairs cloakroom, all accessed from the central entrance hall. Key features within the living room include a study/writing area, an inglenook fireplace and French windows which open onto the patio, lawns and shrubberies with views to the Stour Estuary. Upstairs there is a large main bedroom (with en-suite bathroom) with beautiful views through arched windows which are replicas of those in the original Edwardian house. There is a further double bedroom with en-suite shower room and views over lawns and trees. The large loft space gives huge potential for further rooms or a games room (subject to planning).

      Outside
      Brantham Place is set along a quiet country lane next to Brantham Church. The grounds extend to over six and a half acres and are a mix of lawns, mature trees, terrace areas and shrubs with meandering walks through the woodland down to a small natural pond. The property is entered via a drive with a double car-port garage which also has ancillary store rooms to the side.
