About this property

TENURE: Freehold

A substantial country property which sits well in its grounds, being idyllically located in a rural setting surrounded by glorious countryside. Originally, Brook Farm was three thatched workers cottages dating back to the early 1900s. An extensive programme of renovation and extension in 2012/2013 has created this wonderful family home offering over 9000 sq’ (including garaging) of generous living accommodation arranged over two floors. The spacious entrance hall has an impressive sweeping staircase and leads to the principal reception rooms including the kitchen/breakfast/family room which has bespoke units and granite tops with a large central island. Double doors from the breakfast room lead out to the terrace which can also be accessed from the drawing room, conservatory and dining room. The drawing room boasts an open fireplace with two bay windows offering views of the gardens, and with double doors opening to the conservatory. There are additional informal reception rooms and offices, all ideal for modern family living.

The first floor offers a generous master bedroom with generously proportioned adjoining bathroom and dressing room. The guest room also benefits from a bedroom, ensuite bathroom and dressing room. Three of the 4 further double bedrooms have ensuite shower rooms and there is a family bathroom and an upstairs laundry room.

Brook Farm is well located for access to M4 (J11 or J12) and the M3. For rail links Reading or Basingstoke stations offer express trains to Paddington and Waterloo respectively. The property is situated close to the centre of the delightful village of Silchester. Silchester is renowned for its historic importance, given its Roman origins depicted by the Calleva ruins. Within the village there is a public house, excellent primary school, village hall and large village green, Silchester is an active community with a fete & dog show, fun run, fireworks, Parish boundary walk. The centres of Basingstoke, Newbury and Reading are all easily accessible and provide a comprehensive range of educational, recreational and shopping facilities. There is a good selection of independent schools within a ten mile radius, including Daneshill, Elstree, Bradfield College and Cheam. There are also stunning walks at Silchester Common, Pamber Forest & Benyons' Enclosure.

The property is accessed via wrought iron electric gates and the gravelled driveway leads to the detached triple garage block with parking to the side of the house for numerous vehicles. The property is surrounded by garden on all sides, mostly laid to lawn with mature specimen trees from North America which were planted by a previous owner, including a Hornbeam which is supposedly the oldest in Silchester. There is a large terrace running the length of the house to the rear, which is accessed from the kitchen/breakfast room, dining room and conservatory. Wonderful rural views are enjoyed from the garden.
