About the property
4/5 BEDROOM COTTAGE WITH MANY ORIGINAL FEATURES POSITIONED ON AN ACRE PLOT
Brooklands is an impressive, detached cottage offering both spacious and flexible accommodation arranged over two floors. It is beautifully presented throughout with a variety of character features including exposed beams, traditional doors and feature fireplaces. These character features are complimented by contemporary fittings with three modern bathroom suites. The generous plot expands to just over an acre and is a particular feature with ample parking on the two gated driveways, a double garage, store and workshop.
The property is set on an elevated plot surrounded by countryside and forest walks making it a prime location in Verwood. Whilst enjoying a tranquil position it is also within a short walk of the town centre which offers a wide variety of shops and amenities including a GP surgery, pharmacy and gym. The local area benefits from both first and middle schools which are well regarded and some of which are located only a short walk from the property. Verwood lies 15 miles to the north of Bournemouth with its award winning blue flag beaches and stunning coastline. For those looking to commute, the property offers easy access to the A31 which provides onward travel towards Southampton, Winchester and London. Mainline train stations are located in nearby Bournemouth and Southampton.
Entering the property from the driveway, a boot room provides storage for coats and shoes and leads directly into the kitchen. The kitchen is well appointed in a 'country style' with a range of matching wall and floor mounted units and worksurface leading round to a breakfast bar. An oven and fridge are integrated under the counter. There is space for further appliances including a washing machine, dishwasher and fridge or freezer in the separate utility room.
The dining room is open plan to the kitchen but feels particularly cosy with an attractive muti-fuel burner. The living room is a real feature of the property being part of the original cob cottage and still retaining the original inglenook fireplace with inset bread oven. Windows frame the delightful view over the gardens whilst the original front door provides access onto a seating area.
There are two further reception rooms, one of which is currently utilised as a snug/games room and the other as an office or 5th bedroom depending on need. A new ground floor shower room has been a useful addition.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is a conservatory which is positioned to make the most of the views over the garden with double doors leading directly out.
Rising to the first floor, a spacious landing provides access to all bedrooms and the family bathroom as well as providing two large walk in storage cupboards.
The master bedroom is particularly delightful with a range of fitted wardrobes and stunning views from the window over the surrounding countryside. The ensuite shower room features a large walk in shower cubicle, toilet and wash hand basin with vanity storage under. Bedroom 2 is located at the opposite end of the house, benefits from a dual aspect, fitted wardrobes and access to a further ensuite shower room. Bedrooms 3 and 4 are also generous double bedrooms with lovely views over the garden and are situated in the original 'cob-part' of the cottage. Both bedrooms are serviced by the modern and luxurious family bathroom which consists of a freestanding double ended bath, walk in shower, toilet and wash hand basin.
Externally the property is approached via a private lane with gated access into an area of parking. A detached double garage with electric roller door provides additional parking or storage space with a workshop and store located alongside. A further gate provides access to more parking space if required. The stunning gardens are the real highlight of this home being just over an acre in size and completely private with a pond to the centre and with mature trees interspersed. A patio seating area adjoins the property from the conservatory with additional seating areas positioned around the gardens with views over the surrounding woodland and countryside.
The property benefits from an oil fired central heating system with radiators alongside a wood burner in the living room and a multi-fuel burner in the dining room.
The property has its own onsite private drainage system which was installed in 2019.
The property is connected to mains water and electric.
