A well presented detached country house with a detached cottage set in an idyllic private rural location at the end of a long driveway with countryside views. The property, with a range of outbuildings and equestrian facilities is set in approximately 15 acres.
Brackenwood is a well appointed country house which has been substantially upgraded and improved by the current owners and now forms a comfortable family home in a glorious rural location with countryside views. The elevations are of brick with tile hung upper elevations beneath a pitch tiled and leaded roof. Internally the accommodation flows well and there are numerous character features including herringbone oak flooring, brick fireplaces with wood burning stoves and a selection of casement and sash windows. The kitchen/family room is of particular note with handmade units, granite work surface and oil fired Aga. At one end of the room is a family sitting area with wood burning stove and the breakfast room has a door leading out onto the rear terrace. The master bedroom has wonderful views over the land with extensive fitted wardrobe cupboards and an en suite bathroom with a bath and separate shower cubicle. The layout of the accommodation with its room sizes can be seen on the floor plan.
Brackenwood is accessed from a country lane through electronically operated gates with an intercom and camera. The drive forms a wonderful approach through an avenue of liquidambar trees, which are renowned for their autumnal foliage, with two fenced paddocks on either side of the driveway, both with water and each with a field shelter and lovely views over the surrounding countryside. The driveway culminates in a large parking/turning area for a number of cars to the side of which is a double garage.
There is a recently converted detached one bedroom cottage (see floor plans) with a kitchen area, living room, bedroom and wet room. It is recently converted to a high standard with concertina casement glazed doors giving a wonderful aspect over the countryside and there are good ceiling heights and quality fitments. There is an enclosed stable yard with 5 loose boxes, hay barn and tack room/feed store with sink. To the side of the drive is a large tractor barn and there is a floodlit manège. The gardens form a delightful backdrop to the property being predominately laid to lawn with clipped beech hedging, a number of fruit trees and heated swimming pool with paved surround and brick and tile plant room. There are well stocked herbaceous borders. At the foot of the gardens is a stream fed pond with a central island for nesting birds and a waterfall continues into a small stream. There are four fields all fenced with water supply and an area of woodland. In all around 15 acres, with additional land available if of interest.
The present owners have managed the property as a wildlife sanctuary with wildflower meadows including orchids, bluebell woods, and lily ponds attracting the likes of swallows, house martins, heron and kingfishers with bats as the light fades. Other frequent visitors include fallow deer with badgers and foxes dining on the patio most evenings. There are a variety of fruit trees, blackcurrant bushes, vines and in season blackberry, juniper and mushrooms with timber to fuel the wood burning stoves.
NB: There are no public footpaths on the land.
