A substantial period home with mature gardens and traditional and bespoke outbuildings.
Originally built in the 1920s, Bracken Hill has been thoughtfully extended and improved over the years to create an impressive home whilst retaining much of its period charm. The property enjoys an abundance of character features including fireplace, intricate coving and an original wooden floor which are wonderfully complemented by more modern additions such as a bespoke fully fitted kitchen complete with a range of premium appliances, Amtico flooring, two Villeroy & Boch en suites and recently installed gas boiler. The generous accommodation is set across two floors and extends to more than 3800 sq ft with multiple reception rooms making it an excellent choice for families, with ample space for both formal entertaining and informal family occasions.
The ground floor accommodation is centred around a welcoming entrance hall with cloakroom/WC. From here there is a well-sized family room, a bright 25ft sitting room with a log burner set in a magnificent stone fireplace and a door to the veranda, and dining room with large turret window. The bespoke handmade fully fitted kitchen is a particular highlight complete with a vast central island, appealing shaker-style cabinetry, complementary granite worktops, a range of premium appliances including a Mercury dual fuel cooker with extraction hood, American style Liebherr fridge/freezer and adjacent pantry with matching cabinetry and integrated Bosch microwave and coffee maker. Occupying the first floor landing is a home office space complete with a bespoke built-in desk and bookshelves and lovely views over the garden. There is also a principal bedroom with large turret window and benefitting from an adjacent bathroom with twin basins, Villeroy & Boch freestanding whirlpool bathtub, walk-in rainfall shower with body jets, television and underfloor heating. Two further en suite double bedrooms plus two additional double bedrooms which share a contemporary family bathroom with Jacuzzi corner bathtub and separate shower cubicle.
The house occupies a very secluded plot and is set back from the road behind a gated driveway with a turning circle providing off-street parking for a number of vehicles. There are pleasant gardens to the front with neat lawns, beautiful bedding plants and box hedging with access to various outbuildings such as a bespoke building comprising fully powered garages, a workshop and garden store, a separate garage with electric doors and a games room/gym with adjoining shower room. The south-facing gardens are a fantastic highlight and amount to about four acres featuring large level lawns flanked with attractive borders, an area of wildflower woodland, paddock, kitchen garden with fruit bushes and raised beds, Magnolia and Cherry blossom trees, gazebo with Jacuzzi, a pond with a spacious patio for outdoor dining and two separate greenhouses.

Now this is what I call a proper house, set in the middle of its own grounds, protected on all sides by mature trees and electric gates, I especially like the smart triple garage which is ideal for a collectorRoo FisherProperty agent
