Brook House is a detached stone built house occupying one of the nicest locations we have seen for a long time! Originally 6 wool workers cottages beside the Cam Brook the property has been in the same ownership for over 60 years and whilst it has been well cared for over the years, it will probably now require some modernisation.,
The house is family sized with 2900 sq ft of accommodation, and could easily be extended to the rear (subject to pp). The outbuilding to the front was once two storey- being the wool working wash house.
The gardens are a particular feature- large and mature with level lawns interspersed with trees and shrubs. There are several further outbuildings and orchard. The field lies to the north of the house and adjoins the garden on one side. To the south side of the house and garden is the Cam Brook.
The property is located at the end of a no through lane on the Cameley side of the village. Temple Cloud lies equidistant of Bristol and Bath (13 miles) and about 9 miles from Wells. There is a local primary school and it is in the catchment for Chew Valley School.
Peterside Lane is a rural lane leading away from the village into a valley on the south side.
The accommodation is predominantly laid over two floors with an 'attic' bedroom on the second floor.
A front entrance porch leads into the central hall with doors to the sitting room, snug and kitchen and staircase to the first floor landing. There is a large second sitting room and dining room located beyond the snug and the kitchen is single storey to the rear. The sitting room has an open fireplace and French doors onto the rear terrace. The second sitting room and dining room have French doors onto the garden and windows seats to the front. Each of the reception rooms has an open fire or multi fuel wood burning stove and timber flooring. All have delightful views.
The stairs rise from the hall to the first floor landing, which is split - a front landing leads to a shower room and two double bedrooms - this area could easily become a master suite with bedroom, dressing room and en suite. A door from the main landing leads onto the rear landing where there are two further double bedrooms and a bathroom. The larger of the two bedrooms on this landing has dual aspect to the front and side - with a delightful aspect over the Brook.
A second staircase leads from the end of this landing up to the 'attic' bedroom where there are exposed beams and access into an undereaves storage area. It is believed that when the house was 6 cottages the attic was used as bedroom space and it is partially boarded
Brook House is approached from the no through lane. It is the only property in this location and therefore, offers all the seclusion and peace one could require. There is ample parking to the front, in front of the single garage and single storey outbuilding. A farm gate on the north side of the drive leads into the paddock. Wrought iron gates either side of the house lead into the rear.
The rear gardens are a delight - large level areas of lawn with trees and shrubs. Magnolia, apple and pear trees, copper beech and cork screw hazel to name but a few. There is plenty of space for a vegetable garden and there are several outbuildings on the south side. The brooks runs along the southern boundary. At the top of the garden is an orchard which adjoins the paddock.
The garden is a peaceful haven - perfect for wildlife spotting!
