    About this property

    • 65 Brook Street is a charming grade II listed cottage located within the vibrant Thames-side village of Benson. The property is believed to of dated from at least the c.17th century where it was divided into three cottages from the main house. It has since had modern additions, which has created a generous amount of accommodation while retaining it's period features.

      Upon entering you are greeted by a spacious kitchen with exposed wooden beams, terracotta tiled floor and a number of wall and base units. A separate formal dining area then leads to a sitting room with a large fireplace and a wood-burning stove.

      A modern orangery was added in 2005 and provides an additional reception room with an abundance of natural light. The ground floor also has a utility and a ground-floor shower room.

      On the first floor are three bedrooms, including two large double bedrooms on either side an a quirky en-suite to the principal bedroom. The en-suite has a modern finish and a roll-top bath.

      The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn with shrubbery and climbers surrounding the borders. A small patio sits directly off the orangery. The exterior is finished with a pretty coursed limestone.
