Charming family house set in 9.17 acres of land, surrounded by open countryside
Berrybrook House is a charming five bedroom family house surrounded by 9.17 acres of land with a useful range of outbuildings which could be used for a variety of purposes.
The house is approached via a quiet country lane. At the front of the house is parking, with a double garage and studio to the side. The house was built in the mid 1960's with a later extension in the mid 1990's, with Bradstone elevations under a tile roof.
The house has a light and airy feel throughout. The front door leads through into the Entrance Hall and the ground floor coprises; Dining Room, Sitting Room, Conservatory, Kitchen, Breakfast Room, Utility Room with Larder and Downstairs Shower Room and Boot Room.
Stairs from the Entrance Hall lead up to the first floor landing, off which can be found five Bedrooms and a Family Bathroom.
The views from the house across the land and beyond, over the beautiful surrounding countryside are exceptional.
The sheltered garden wraps round the house and is mainly laid down to lawn, with a productive fenced vegetable garden.
Behind the double garage and studio is a 4 baytimber Barn with concrete floor and corrugated roof (14.6m x 7.4m) which has in the past been used for stabling.
Adjacent is a 3 bay open fronted Hay Store (10.9m x 7.4m) which has also been used as calf housing, to the rear is a 3 bay cattle shed (10.3m x 7.1m).
Next to the buildings are gated and well fenced concrete livestock yards. These well laid out, compact range of livestock buildings and yards lend themselves to a wide variety of uses.
The Grade 3 gently sloping ring fenced land sweeps round the house on three sides. The land is divided into manageable sized paddocks, ideal for rotating livestock. The boundary fence is a mature hedgerow. The land has in recent years been grazed by a mixture of horses, cattle and sheep, with the loam over clay capable of growing abundant grass crops.
