Situated in a stunning location in Midford Valley within easy vehicular reach of Bath, this ‘unlisted’ four storey five double bedroom attached family home sits within beautiful grounds with countryside walks and cycling on your doorstep. This is truly a lovely family home with versatile accommodation for a growing family.
Brook House is a grand and impressive property built with Ashlar stone with a warm honey colour appearance. Parts of the property date from the Georgian period. The property has been extended by the current owners and is not a Listed Building.
The grounds as you can see from the photography are lovely and well cared for and would be a childrens delight and a super place to explore. There are paved terraces, lawns, wildlife areas and a vegetable garden with railway carriage ideal as a potting shed or summer house. In addition there is a small pond with a natural water feature.
The accommodation includes five double bedrooms, a comfortable good sized family living room, kitchen dining room, study, utility, workshop, family bathroom with roll top bath, family shower room and cloakroom. There is a lovely view of the garden from almost every window. The property is predominantly double glazed except the main front windows with gas central heating with predominantly column radiators.
The property has the appearance from the front elevation of three storeys but in fact there are four storeys. The property is attached at the rear to a smaller residential property.
The lower ground floor has its own entrance leading directly into the practical utility area which makes it an ideal entrance for children and the family dog with muddy feet. In addition, there is another good sized room currently used as a workshop.
Driveway parking is plentiful. There is a detached double garage plus cloakroom with WC and hand basin with the added benefit of versatile accommodation above. The building has electric, water and sewerage services provided with a gas pipe laid beneath the driveway which we understand could be connected by the new owners. The first floor accommodation above the garage could be utilised as office space, childrens hideaway, gym or even an annex for a dependent relative.
The current owners have raised their family in this lovely location and have owned the property for 31 years.
In summary, this property has extensive accommodation and grounds set in beautiful Midford Valley which is so close to the City of Bath. Schooling and transport links are excellent. The regular public and school bus services allow children a degree of self sufficiency. All in all, a lovely place to live and bring up your family.
The desirable village of Midford is situated approximately 3.5 miles south-east of Bath City Centre and consists of predominantly period cottages and larger family homes.
