ONE OF THE FINEST HOMES IN THE CHALKE VALLEY
DESCRIPTION: Brook House was built in 1890 of brick and flint elevations under a slate roof. It has always been the doctor’s house located in the centre of the valley and at one time the surgery was in what is now known as the family room. The surgery was then moved to the adjacent property which was sold as a separate residence some five years ago.
Brook House has enormous charm and superb accommodation ideal for a large family. It has the benefit of oil fired central heating as well as double glazing. On the ground floor there is a large entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, inner hall, family room, kitchen/breakfast room with AGA, conservatory, utility room and wet room. There is also a large cellar with access from the hall. On the first floor there is a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, four further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The house is set in lovely mature gardens and grounds with ample parking to the front and side. There is space for a garage subject to the necessary approvals. On the western side there is a large area of lawn with vegetable garden, shed and this area has great potential. On the northern side there is a further large area of lawn stretching down to a wild garden with two springs leading down to a spur of the River Ebble. The whole area amounts to approximately 0.8 of an acre.
LOCATION: Brook House is located in the centre of the village of Broadchalke within walking distance of the excellent primary school as well as the other facilities of the village. These include a public house, a village hall, church, recreation ground and the hub, a community shop and meeting place.
