About this property

  • Brettfields is a well presented house full of character including

    brick, block and rendered elevations under pitched tiled
    roofs. Internally the ground floor layout flows from a central
    reception hall and via a large landing on the first floor.
    The vaulted dining/garden room is a fantastic entertaining space with French doors leading out to the terrace and benefits from a wood burner. There is also a well proportioned drawing room with wood burner, dual aspect and French doors out on the terrace. The sitting room, study and cloakroom are all accessed from the hall. Upstairs, the principal bedroom benefits from an en suite bathroom and there are a further 3 bedrooms (1 with an en suite shower room) and a family bathroom.
    The property is approached up a slightly elevated gravel drive
    which culminates in a large circular drive providing parking
    for a number of vehicles and gives access to the cart lodge.
    The gardens surround the house lying predominantly to the rear and are mainly laid to lawn surrounded by mature hedges,
    trees and a pond. A wide terrace runs the length of the
    house, perfect for al fresco dining.
