DESCRIPTION Brookthorpe Court Farmhouse is a substantial wing of an impressive Grade II* Listed Court House dating back to the 16th Century with a wealth of history and character. The property is discreetly nestled within the sought-after village of Brookthorpe set amongst a small private cul-de-sac of attractive period barn conversions adjacent to the St Swithuns Church which is a Church Conservation Trust church and no longer used for regular worship.
The accommodation extends in all to 2,828 sq.ft. and has an array of original features throughout including exposed beams, flagstone flooring and solid doors. The ground floor comprises principally of two large reception rooms each with impressive fireplaces and a country kitchen/breakfast room with an AGA, Rangemaster cooker and bespoke fitted units from reclaimed French oak with Zimbabwian granite worktops. Completing the ground floor, there is a study, inner hall, cloakroom and a utility room which leads to a garden room overlooking the front courtyard.
Across a split level first floor, there are five bedrooms in total all with built in storage and a modern family bathroom with both a shower and bath whilst the master bedroom is served by a stylish en-suite shower room.
Externally, the property is set away from the road accessed down a private cul-de-sac and entered via a five-bar gate into a gravel driveway providing ample private parking. There is an enclosed courtyard with access to the detached 16th Century barn which is currently utilised as a workshop whilst planning permission was granted in 2005 (now lapsed) to convert the barn into a 2-bedroom annexe. At the rear is a delightful walled garden predominantly laid to lawn with a range of mature specimen trees and various seating areas including a charming Japanese tea house.
The property benefits from modern specifications including an OkoFEN Pellematic boiler, a new multi-fuel stove in the living room and an Anua platinum sewage treatment plant.
