    About this property

    • Broxham House is a charming Grade II listed period property dating from the 16th century with later additions, believed to have once been a farmhouse and set within exquisite gardens and grounds in a delightful rural location.

      The property is generously proportioned, offering accommodation in excess of 4,900 sq ft which is arranged over three floors and displays an abundance of character embellished with some modern comforts. Character features including exposed wall and ceiling timbers, oak framed square pane lead casement windows, oak panelled doors, oak staircase and inglenook fireplaces, are complemented by a sympathetically designed, modern kitchen/breakfast room.

      Externally the property prominently displays its 16th century origins with brick and rendered elevations enhancing the exposed timber frame under a tile hung roof. Broxham House is set within idyllic and well maintained gardens which are a particular feature of the property, and in total amounts to about 3.25 acres. Within the grounds are several outbuildings including a self-contained annexe.

      The arched oak front door leads to the impressive reception hall with inglenook fireplace inset with a wood burning stove and opening to the rear hall with garden access, a cloakroom and attractive oak staircase rising to the first floor.
