About this property

  • Brookthorpe is a beautifully proportioned, classically Victorian family house, dating from the 1890s. Internally, the property is deceptively spacious, with generous accommodation spanning four floors. Whilst maintaining a number of classic period features including high ceilings, oak flooring and elegant fireplaces, the property has been extended and much improved, including the creation of a wonderful family dining room with Aga and useful suite of rooms in the basement, which have the potential to be utilised as a self-contained annexe.

    The full extent of the accommodation, which extends to 3,291 square feet, can be seen on the floor plans that follow.

    Outside, a good-sized walled garden extends to the south and east of the house; mainly laid to lawn and with an attractive, raised paved terrace, two timber storage sheds with power, and parking.

This is clearly a much loved family home, and I can see so much scope for a future family to make it their own. The potential to create a self-contained annexe on the lower ground floor is particularly appealing.
