Lovely family home in spacious grounds
Brimpton Cottage enjoys a wonderful secluded position. Evolving over time, its origins are a 15th century barn with adjoining cottages added later. Lovingly and sympathetically restored and extended by the present owners, it now harmoniously fuses the richness of its history with the requirements of 21st century living, providing a light filled family home with generously proportioned rooms.
The hall leads straight on to the welcoming kitchen/ breakfast room, which together with its delightful sitting area forms the heart of the house. Stunning bespoke oak bi-folding doors open to the garden and views beyond. The painted wooden units, Aga, double Belfast sink set into a slate worktop and tongue and groove splash backs make for a pleasing working end of this family room.
Directly off the kitchen is the charming snug or study. The drawing room, with its exposed beams, opens from the hall and interconnects with the snug. Steps lead up to the original barn, now a spectacular room with the old oak roof trusses exposed and a door opening to the garden. Presently used as a games room, this space lends itself to a variety of other uses. Also off the hall is a cloakroom, utility room and boot room.
Stairs rise to the first floor where the stunning principal bedroom suite is of particular note. Creative use of the beams in this, the oldest part of the house, form a dressing area and en suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, two with en suite shower rooms and a family bathroom. The second floor boasts a large room with beautiful views, presently used as a bedroom, but would make an ideal home office. There is also a shower room and a large storage room beyond.
Wooden gates open to a gravelled drive with ample parking. Delightful gardens wrap around the property with the paddock beyond and feature mature trees, a pond, and an enclosed swimming pool (not presently in working order). There is a wooden double bay carport with storage shed at one end and
4 other useful storage and garden sheds.
Services: Mains water and electric are connected. Private drainage. Oil-fired central heating
