A substantial superbly extended and refurbished character family home occupying an elevated position with stunning views over the surrounding National Trust heathland
Bracken is a versatile family home, situated in the hugely sought-after Blackheath village, known for its superb walking and riding; the peace and quiet so seldom found is here in profusion. The house has been superbly enlarged and renovated to the highest quality in the last three years. The kitchen has been fitted by the renowned Chalon Company. A majestic six door Aga sits comfortably in this large area affording masses of space for informal entertaining. French doors lead out to a wonderfully large terrace area, perfect for summer BBQs. The formal dining room flows well from the kitchen making entertaining very easy and the wine cellar, which holds 1,500 bottles, conveniently sits under the dining room. A superb drawing room, which is flooded with light, has a warm formal feel and a wood burner sits neatly in an attractive fireplace. These two rooms make a wonderful party space. The whole of the ground floor and basement has underfloor heating. The large basement area is currently used as a gym.
The first floor and bedroom accommodation is equally impressive featuring a sumptuous master suite, an extremely large room with a sitting area and a wood burning stove; the dressing room leads to a spacious bathroom with large walk-in shower, bath and his and her basins. Of the further five bedrooms all but one have en suite bathrooms.
GARDENS & GROUNDS
Bracken sits in its impressive grounds of 1.585 acres, the gardens and grounds are undoubtedly a wonderful feature of the property; the owners have lavished time and money on superb landscaping together with mature shrubs and trees. Being an acid soil, rhododendrons thrive along with Acer and many other acid loving plants. Rolling lawns, ample terracing and peaceful areas to sit and enjoy these striking grounds. The tennis court and tennis pavilion nestle well amongst the gardens. An added bonus is the Studio Barn which provides a wonderful entertainment space opening directly onto the terracing. Positioned close by is a delightful vegetable garden that is not only a good producer but very appealing to the eye. Ample garaging completes the outside.
