Pushing open the front door of this charming family home we are welcomed by the brick floor that lines the entrance porch and flows into our ground floor cloakroom. From here we step into the main hall where stripped timber flooring complements the space. Stairs rise to the first floor whilst within the under stairs cupboard we find steps that lead down to the brick lined cellar. To the right of the hall we step into our family kitchen, perfectly suited for working/family life and entertaining alike. The kitchen is fitted with an excellent range of bespoke wall and base units with granite work tops, stainless steel 'Rangemaster' cooker, space for various appliances and brick inglenook fireplace with wood burner and original bread oven. An arch leads into the garden room which is a 'room for all seasons' and an ideal spot for dining with views over the garden. A stable door leads into the utility room which has a butler sink, further units and backdoor. Stepping through the hall we enter our living space which boasts two generous interconnecting reception rooms (both with wood burners) which create an excellent living and entertaining space with windows looking onto and French doors leading out to the garden. A study leads from the second reception room, providing an excellent additional working or living space. OClimbing the stairs we pass a stained glass window and step onto the landing. Our first three double bedrooms are set at the head of the stairs, the two larger both boast feature fireplaces and built in storage with views onto the rear gardens. Stepping along the landing we find our family bathroom which offers a classic bathroom suite comprising a roll top bath, wash basin and w/c. At the far end of the landing we step into the master bedroom suite. This generous room enjoys windows to two aspects and two walk in wardrobe areas. A door opens to the en-suite shower room which completes the accommodation.
The property is approached by a sweeping gravel driveway which wraps around the front gardens and leads to the extensive parking and turning space where we find our double garage and timbers double bay workshop. The house is set well back from the road providing an extra sense of privacy. A brick path leads to the front door of the house whilst front garden enjoys a small orchard with a variety of fruit trees, lawns and established shrubs. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with a good selection of mature shrubs, trees and borders and an ancient plum tree climbs up the gable end to the house. A small wooded area sits to the rear boundary whilst our boundaries are either fenced or have established hedging. The detached brick double garage measures (8.6mx6.1m) with two up and over doors. The timber workshop measures (5.5mx5.2m).
The house is situated in the very popular village of Brooke just past The Meres (which is the centre of the village with a quaint duck pond). Brooke has a variety of village amenities including a popular primary school, a village store/Post Office, butchers, hairdressers, florists and farm shop, two public houses and a tennis club. There is an active community with many events organised throughout the year. Buses run regularly to Norwich and Bungay.
