    About this property

    • Viewings from Monday 4 March
      Bramley House is a superbly presented detached house, with classic part hung, part brick elevations under a tiled roof. It was acquired by the current owners in 2018 and has been the subject of significant renovations and reconfiguring, to create a light, spacious and contemporary home that meets modern expectations.

      The accommodation is arranged over three floors, and the décor and fittings have been carefully chosen, utilising natural materials and clean lines. The property has been fitted with steel crittall windows, framed in pale oak; a superb herringbone parquet floor runs throughout the open plan living area. There is gas fired underfloor heating throughout the ground floor; the first and second floors have stylish reclaimed radiators and electric underfloor heating to the bathrooms.

      The property is ideal for modern family life; the major portion of the ground floor has been opened up to create a stunning, spacious open plan kitchen/dining/living room. The southern wall is entirely glazed and fitted with three sets of steel crittall doors opening to the terrace, creating a wonderful flow between inside and outside.

      The kitchen has an excellent range of walnut wood cabinetry complemented by marble countertops; a preparation sink is set into the central island, with a further sink under the window. It is served by a useful utility room, with space for storage and plumbing for appliances.

      On the first floor, the layout has been reconfigured to create three spacious bedrooms (one with an en suite shower room) served by a superbly refitted family bathroom and a laundry room, with shelving and plumbing for appliances. On the second floor is a further bedroom, with an en suite shower room and plumbing for a bath; each of the shower/bathrooms has been beautifully refitted with tiled enclosures to the walk in showers.

      The annexe can be reached via the utility room, or by its own sliding doors. It offers airy guest or secondary accommodation, or an excellent space to work from home, and briefly comprises living room, bedroom and shower room.

      Bramley House sits towards the centre of its plot, which extends to a quarter of an acre, and is approached from Priory Road by a five bar gate which opens to a block paved drive ahead of the house and annexe. There is side access to the rear garden, which has a paved terrace immediately next to the house. The remainder is mainly laid to lawn and bordered by hedging.

    What an amazing house and just a 16 minute walk from the centre of Forest Row. It's one of my favourite villages, it has real sense of community and a great range of shops and eateries.
