About this property

  • Bramfield Folly is a remarkably special Gothic Country house with wonderful period character throughout & set in exceptional secluded grounds. The property is very rare in the market and dates back to the late 18th Century and has been a much loved home for many years. The house is fascinating with exceptional architectural interest constructed from mellow red brick & flint walls with wonderful hexagonal corner turrets topped with castellations. The house is approached up wide stone steps to an elevated ground floor providing a central reception hall flanked by two wonderful reception rooms. The drawing room & dining room both have open fireplaces with decorative marble surrounds and beautiful floor to ceiling Gothic windows overlooking the gardens. The first floor offers two charming, well proportioned bedrooms overlooking the front gardens and there are a further two bedrooms and a bathroom. There is a very spacious series of basement rooms which have great potential for other uses subject to the necessary consents being obtained. To the rear lies a walled courtyard beyond which is a spacious timber framed barn and a series of further outbuildings.

    Bramfield Folly is currently approached over a long driveway that first gives access to Folly Cottage, a charming single story self-contained cottage that is ideally positioned to give it privacy from the main house. The previous owners have taken great care over the gardens and grounds of Bramfiled Folly and have planted a wonderful arboretum of rare specimen trees that lie to the south and west of the house. The gardens encompass the property with a particularly attractive part walled garden with lawns, mature well stocked herbaceous borders and terraces that surround the house overlooking the garden.

    Agents Note:

At first sight I was fascinated by Bramfield Folly - it has exceptional, romantic, architectural features and the setting is wonderfully private and secluded.
