Characterful modern house with large garden and incorporating converted French barn.
Westbrook House is part of a small development, College Court, comprising just four houses built in the late 1990s on the former farmyard attached to College Farm - an historic Grade II listed farmhouse which, as the name would suggest, belonged to St John's College Cambridge.
The unique design of Westbrook House incorporated an old reclaimed barn sourced in France by the developer which now forms the large open plan kitchen/ breakfast room and a seating area. The current owners have also added a superb oak framed garden room off the end of the barn which has a lovely outlook over the large garden to the rear of the house.
The rest of the accommodation is shown in the attached floor plans and extends to approximately 3,012 sq ft and includes a large main sitting room with open fireplace a separate dining room and study together with a further library/office with a partially glazed roof overlooking the garden.
At first floor level there are five bedrooms and three bathrooms (two en suite).
The combination of modern convenience with the character provided by the oak frame of the converted barn give the property great appeal.
Approached through an archway in a weather boarded building at the entrance there is a large shingled courtyard, Westbrook House is the house directly ahead. To the front of the house are areas of lawn and a shingled drive leading up to the attached double garage.
The gardens are a particular feature of the property, laid to lawn with raised vegetable beds, numerous trees and a large terrace to the rear of the house. In addition to the garaging there is weather boarded separate workshop building to one side with power and light laid on. To one side the gardens look out over pasture land.

This is a really lovely house with super gardens and surprisingly features a reclaimed oak framed French barn which was cleverly incorporated into the design along with a recent addition of an oak garden room a great family house tucked away in a private setting well worth a look.James Barnett
