A charming period farmhouse of largely Georgian origins. The current owners moved into this delightful family home in 1980 and since then have sympathetically refurbished the whole property
and carried out many improvements. These improvements include extensions to the house, changes to the layout and flow of the rooms to suit modern living, and the construction of a four car
garage and studio/additional garage. Of particular note is the very welcoming reception hall with its log stove and the impressive kitchen/breakfast room that enjoys wonderful views to the south
and west over the grounds and open fields beyond. Similar views are enjoyed by the large master bedroom above. The property retains many original period features including high ceilings, open
fire places, original doors and architraves, all of which add to the charm of this truly period home.
Brockhill Farm is conveniently situated with easy access to Ascot, Bracknell, Maidenhead and Slough with their rail links to Paddington and Waterloo, and with new Elizabeth Line (Cross Rail) opening to Reading at the end of 2019 providing rapid access to central London. The M4/M3 and M25 motorways are located nearby and provide easy access to Heathrow Airport, Central London, and out around the country.
Comprehensive shopping facilities are to be found in Windsor, Maidenhead and Reading and local shopping in both Ascot and Bracknell. Recreational opportunities in the general area
include golf at some of the country’s finest clubs, health and tennis clubs, spa hotels, cinemas and theatres, dry skiing and ice rinks, miles of beautiful country walks and the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club only 2 miles away.
The area also benefits from a great selection of some highly regarded schools and colleges including Lambrook School, LVS Ascot, St. Mary’s and St George’s schools, Eton College, Wellington College and Papplewick School, Ascot.
The property is approached via electric wrought iron gates on brick piers that open onto a very spacious gravelled driveway/courtyard with a Deodar Cedar tree acting as a central island.
The garages are set to the rear of the entrance driveway and the original stable block to the front, the latter having been extensively refurbished before being used as a farm shop and now as a hobbies/storage room. Whilst the gardens surround
the house on three sides, the majority of the land sits to the rear of the house and slopes gently away from the property in a southerly direction. The terrace to the rear, with its southerly aspect and pergola, enjoys panoramic views beyond and
provides a wonderful area for summer entertaining. From the terrace, steps lead down to the lawn and the landscaped sunken garden beyond, the latter having a pond and fountain at its centre. Further on there is an orchard with a selection of fruit
trees. The remainder of the gardens are open lawn interspersed with a mixture of mature trees and shrubs including a fig tree.
Beyond the garden is open pasture that has, in the past, been used as paddock for the family ponies. Privacy is ensured by a wall along the side of the garden and a thick hedge screening the paddock. Total plot of 3.5 acres.
Please note some photos have been taken at different times during the year.
