About this property

DESCRIPTION Kempstone Lodge comes to the market for the first time in nearly forty years and dates back to 1982-1983, being one of four contemporary properties located on this select development known as Brooke Gardens, close to the Mere in Brooke and part of the Brooke House Estate, which until 1982 was in the ownership of the Mackintosh family of chocolate fame.

The houses here were built by the well known local builder, Hibbett & Key, to a high standard and Kempstone Lodge has an open plan feel, being extended in 1989 to provide a further reception room and utility room, with accommodation over.

Everything works very well and the property is approached via a wide, light and airy entrance hall with access to the principal ground floor rooms, including study, sitting room and dining room leading through to the family room/sung and kitchen.

Upstairs the rooms are arranged around a landing area with suitable bathroom facilities, including three en-suites.

The property has a great deal of character for a contemporary home and will be of great interest to those buyers looking to acquire a property with a warm feel.

Outside the house is approached from the communal drive serving this development and Brooke House Care Home. The drive then leads through to Kempstone Lodge and the entire plot extends to 0.51 acres (subject to measured survey) with gardens to front and rear. There is plenty of hard standing at the front for vehicles and the property benefits from a large double garage with workshop and general storage space as well.

The rear garden is a major feature of the property, being part walled and the vendors have established a most wonderful flower garden over many years and have retained the original Pool House that was used back in the days of the Mackintosh family as a feature.

The gardens include flowers, trees and shrubs and a particular feature is the wisteria adjoining the rear of the property and terrace. There is a great deal of privacy and the property is south-west facing, benefiting from the sun as the day goes on.

The vendors will be sad to leave but hope very much that a family will take on the house and enjoy it as much as they have.

Sevices - Mains water, ,mains electricity, mains drainage, LPG heating.

Acreage - 0.51 acres (stms).
