Brook House is a handsome, stone built detached residence which has been designed and finished with classic style throughout. Built some eight years ago on the site of the former public house of the same name, this landmark property now offers exceptional accommodation of refined stature and offers five reception rooms, a master duplex suite and, three further superb bedrooms each with en suites. Set within extensive landscaped gardens which enjoy far reaching pastoral aspects beyond, the property also has further annex accommodation, double garage and ample secure driveway parking – all within easy reach of commuter transport links.
The panelled entrance door with etched glass inserts opens to a vestibule and the honed marble flooring guides you through to the hallway and continues through most of the ground floor, giving both under-floor warmth and a light aura to the areas. A Control 4 Home Automation System in in place to regulate the underfloor heating, mood lighting via recessed down-lights and full media systems throughout the rooms. A slate and black granite ingle houses a log burning stove for a warm welcome and there is space for a lounge suite for guests’ arrival. Alongside is the dining room with bi-folding doors to the rear garden and a panel of glass in the floor looks down to the wine cellar which is accessed via a hatch door to reveal a staircase descending.
Black oak panelled doors give way to the rooms including the principal, dual aspect lounge with a sash window to the front and full length aluminium bifold doors to the garden. The room also has a wall mounted television point is positioned on the chimney breast which houses a Meg Stoves log burner in the ingle. However, for added panache, the lounge transforms into a cinema room having fully automated curtain-closure, screen and projector descent and sound via the five integrated ceiling speakers and a subwoofer.
Just off the main hall is the study overlooking the frontage and having full height bookshelves. Alongside is the doorway into the superb open plan living dining kitchen which has been fitted with a range of Siematic cabinets, an island unit and wall-bank of integrated Miele appliances including larder fridge and freezer, oven and grill, combi oven, steam oven and two proving drawers. The island has a white Corian surround, incorporates a breakfast bar and is inset with a stainless-steel sink unit and Quooker tap, a Siemens four-ring induction hob with down-draft extractor fan, Siemens automatic dishwasher and, in a further separate cabinet, there is a wine chiller. Other essential white goods for the home can be found in the adjacent Siematic laundry room.
Steps down lead to the sun room with amazing views through the glazed panels to three walls incorporating bi-fold doors to the sun terrace. Oak flooring gives a homely feel to this area which has a fitted wall cabinet housing a bi-ethanol living flame fireplace with a television above.

The master suite comprises a capacious bedroom with chandelier point to the vaulted ceiling and French windows to the decked balcony with a further glass balustrade. The built in bed-head is positioned to give optimal aspects over the gardens and to the reverse side is a boudoir area fitted with illuminated dressing table and taking natural light from the window to the front.
A sliding door opens to the dressing room fitted with tinted mirror door wardrobes, matching drawer banks, and shoes and handbag shelves. A staircase rises to the fully marble tiled en suite with a contemporary white Duravit luxury suite comprising bathtub, walk-in shower cabinet, vanity set wash basin and a wall mounted w.c.

The property is positioned behind a stone wall frontage and approached via a Tarmacadam driveway which provides parking for several cars and leads to a detached double garage with electric doors, power and light. The area is edged with lawn areas, mature shrubs and a stone wall boundary.
The extensive, landscaped gardens to the rear are an absolute delight having a covered gallery over the first part of the extensive York stone flagged sun terrace which opens out to an al fresco dining area and enjoys far reaching aspects over the gardens and the adjoining farmland. A pathway leads to a further circular patio which is edged by a low retaining wall and has a fire-pit facility. The undulating lawns surround an attractive lagoon which is fed via a limestone waterfall and the area is bordered by mature trees and shrubs. To the side, steps lead down to the log store and annex, which forms the rear part of the garage, currently used as a very spacious gymnasium and having two sets of French windows to the fresh air of the garden for the more strenuous workouts.
