Briery Brake is approached from Hollywood Lane via a pair of electric double gates, opening to the private drive up to the house, with plenty of off-street parking to the front.
On entering the property, the space and light are immediately obvious with a fabulous double height entrance hall flooded with natural light, and a pair of French doors opening out to the sun terrace and rear garden. In addition, there is a separate fitted cloakroom complete with a low-level WC and wash basin and separate large storage cupboard which houses the Boiler and Underfloor heating system.
The versatile entrance / dining hall flows through to the superb sitting room, enjoying a double aspect and lovely views over the garden. Sliding double doors open to the outdoor dining terrace for lazy summer lunches, and a cast-iron wood burning stove offers warmth and character in the winter. Adjacent to the sitting room is the generous kitchen and breakfast room, also with a double aspect overlooking the garden. The kitchen has plenty of workspace, and integrated appliances including a full height fridge / freezer and dishwasher. A large Rangemaster 110 presents excellent cooking facilities and there is plenty of space for a breakfast table.
Across the hallway from the kitchen is the large dining room with a light-filled triple aspect and fitted cast-iron wood burning stove. This could also double up as a second reception room or playroom.
The study provides further flexible accommodation, making an ideal fourth bedroom and is currently used as a study / crafts room with views down towards the driveway.
Accessed via an inner hall of their own lie three double bedrooms, the family bathroom and a useful fitted laundry room. The master bedroom boasts a glorious en-suite bathroom, complete with feature lighting and a three-piece suite, whilst both the remaining bedrooms have in-built wardrobes. These share a delightful family bathroom, with a three-piece suite and a separate walk-in corner shower cubicle. The laundry room is fully fitted for both a washing machine and dryer and could easily be converted back to provide a fifth bedroom if needed.
The gardens of Briery Brake are a fabulous feature predominantly facing east, south and west with plenty of parking to the north situated at the top of the drive, along with an outside power supply and water.
With an expanse of level lawn flanked by mature borders with pine and fruit trees, the house has an enviable amount of privacy, and is able to follow the sun throughout much of the day. Accessed from the entrance hall is a wonderful sun terrace, complete with an outdoor fireplace for the late evening, with a decent paved dining terrace accessed for the siting room ideal for family lunches and bbq’s.
A lean-to and hard-standing provides storage from the top of the drive for wood and bikes, and a large shipping container discreetly placed to the edge of the garden provides further secure storage for garden furniture and equipment.
