About this property

  • Brockham House is a beautiful and historic Grade II Listed period house dating originally to circa 1500. The property, which has been enlarged in subsequent years, has all the classic hallmarks of a fine period property, including numerous exposed timbers, leaded light windows, traditional fireplaces and a fine Inglenook fireplace to the sitting room.

    This beautiful family home is being offered to the market for the first time since the late 1970s. Brockham House offers considerable potential to further enhance this superb period house. The house is accessed through a pretty wrought iron gate leading from the village. The fine drawing room dates to the late 18th century and offers views over the gardens. The flooring is a classic oak and the room enjoys a modern wood burning stove. The sitting room is believed to date back to the 1500's and has a fabulous inglenook fireplace. The useful study has views on to the front gardens. The utility room and boiler room are believed to be the original dairy, with an interesting window marked DAIRY, which exempted it from window tax. They offer very useful storage for family life. The dining room has high ceilings reflecting its previous use as the hay loft and has some lovely original beams and herringbone oak flooring. The kitchen, which overlooks the garden, is fitted with a range of shaker style units, ceramic flooring and an Aga cooker. The stunning conservatory leading off the kitchen really maximises the beautiful views of the gardens and has opening doors onto the terrace.

    The original oak staircase leads to the first floor where the four bedrooms enjoy fine views over the gardens and village. Two bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and one bedroom a small en suite toilet and wash hand basin.

    The grounds are a particularly attractive feature of Brockham house, having been lovingly maintained over many years. The gardens are laid out in a traditional English country cottage style with generously stocked flowerbeds and borders, well tended level lawns and a number of established trees including a Mulberry and an Acer. The garden boasts a number of raised vegetable beds and a fruit cage. The gardens are particularly lovely in the spring with a well stocked garden of spring bulbs. The kitchen garden has a greenhouse, garden store and gardener's WC.

    The barn complex offers many potential uses and is currently used for garaging and garden stores. There is ample parking for several cars in a brick paved courtyard.
