Rural living for the London commuter with great facilities to work from home.
Believed to date from the 1800s of part timber frame construction, Millbrooks is a delightful mix of period and contemporary, having been the subject of an extensive programme of refurbishment and extension by the present owners, beautifully marrying the old and the new. The expert craftsmanship and superb attention to detail is apparent in the quality of the finish and the accommodation is light and airy throughout.
Accommodation: There is a beautiful entrance hall with a high ceiling overlooked by a galleried landing, above which is a central glass atrium. Off the entrance hall is a kitchen/breakfast/family room with bi-fold doors opening directly onto a terrace and the garden beyond. Also off the hall is a sitting room, snug with a Jydepejsen woodburner and access to the front door, a study and a garden room also with a woodburner. Located off the kitchen is a loggia and the utility room. On the first floor are five principal bedrooms including a spectacular main bedroom with a high vaulted ceiling and a large window framing the distant views over the garden and farmland beyond, and with an en suite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom but also accessible separately as a family bathroom.
Outside: Millbrooks is approached over a gravel drive through electric wooden gates leading to a parking area to the side of the house for a number of cars. The drive continues to a yard, on one side of which is a Charles Britton manège with a Martin Collins Equisand surface and on the other a part-brick and weather-boarded barn housing five Lodden stables, a hay store/feed room, tack room and w.c. The beautiful gardens surround the house and have been lovingly created by the present owners with lawn areas, herbaceous borders, flower beds and terracing. Doors open out from the kitchen/breakfast/family room onto a large terrace and deck area leading to a lawn area and raised part-walled garden. Steps up from a side terrace lead up to flower beds and plants, trees and shrubs and a greenhouse. A gate to the west of the drive leads into the mill field incorporating a Southwest Greens' synthetic chipping and putting golf green in the grounds which extend away from the house, interspersed with numerous young trees with more mature trees and a stream along the boundary. Sloping uphill, away from the barn and house, are four fenced paddocks and on the other side of the lane is a cutting garden.
