  • Bedrooms: 4
Brookwell House presents a rather unique opportunity for a family to acquire a significant period home in a popular village, full of character features and with an attached barn with planning permission granted to convert into a three bedroom dwelling... a home for a dependant relative, holiday cottage or long let perhaps? The accommodation includes four reception rooms, a sitting room, study and a living room which opens into a generous dining room, there is also a farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room, ground floor shower room, utility porch and a separate WC. To the first floor are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom and to the second floor is a useful snug with an adjacent bedroom - Perfect for a teenager with a bit of upgrading completed. There are enclosed gardens to the front with planning passed for a new drive and integral garage for the house and to the rear is a designated courtyard garden area and parking for the barn plus a decent lawned garden with dining terrace for the main house. A very rare find indeed...

Attached Unconverted Barn

The attached unconverted barn has planning permission to convert into a three bedroom residential property. The accommodation will run over the current archway which provides vehicle access to both the barn and the new build behind the house. The plans allow for a courtyard style garden area and two parking spaces behind and we feel this is highly suitable as a holiday cottage once converted.



To the front of the property is an enclosed garden laid to lawn with planted areas, path to front door and a shared drive leading through an arch in the barn. There are approved plans for parking in the front garden leading to a proposed single garage, converted from a current barn room. The gardens to the rear include a patio terrace with steps which leads to an area of lawn with borders.
