      Kimble Brook House enjoys a delightful setting with a shallow brook, giving the property its name, running the length of the grounds. To the front a picturesque wooden bridge crosses the brook leading to a wild flower meadow, interspersed with mature trees. A gravelled driveway gives parking for several vehicles and there are two garages and a gated store area. A garden gate leads to the beautifully landscaped and walled rear garden, which is south facing and wraps around the house to the rear and side. The garden is predominately laid to lawn, with wonderful well stocked beds and borders giving colour and interest, including a beautiful mature magnolia and a fine cherry tree. A stone terrace adjoins the house to the rear, giving the perfect spot for outside summer dining, with a raised ornamental pond nestling in the far corner. The garden is well screened giving privacy and seclusion. Approaching 0.75 acres in all.
