Holbrook Park
Holbrook Park

Brock Taylor are offering for sale number 6 at Holbrook Park, which is believed to have originated in the 12th century with, it is understood, the remnants of the Tudor Farmhouse still evident in another portion of the house.

Major rebuilding from the 1770s to the 1840s reflect the current Italianate style of the house today and the elevation overlooking the courtyard has the date of 1846 in Roman numerals.

Approached via a shared gravel drive, the property is set in about 1.5 acres with an array of attractive features.

The flagstone terrace to the rear of the property, which can be accessed from the drawing room french windows, gives immediate access to the main lawn with various stone steps that lead to other areas of the grounds including the Lavender walk. From here, you will find the magnificent rhododendron bushes, a glorious weeping Ash, Monkey Puzzle trees leading onto the Rose walk, Bluebell garden and many more flowering trees and shrubs.

No 6 Holbrook Park, with its separate entrance, occupies the original billiard and gun rooms of the main house, providing excellent family accommodation whilst retaining a number of original features. The drawing room provides the centre piece of the property with oak framed sash windows and shutters, with stunning views over the surrounding gardens, which can be accessed directly by the french windows.

The parquet flooring, which is also featured in further rooms, we understand, still retains the original inset billiard table area, while the tall ceilings are complimented by the original ornate cornicing that surrounds the room. The principal suite also contains the same beautiful cornicing as the drawing room and enjoys four sash windows. There are four further bedrooms, and a family bathroom.
