Property Summary

A beautiful Arts and Crafts house with many original features, tucked away in gorgeous gardens in central Castle Cary.

Brookfield offers spacious and flexible accommodation, including a large well appointed kitchen and dining room which have been operating as a part -time restaurant. This very attractive property has a strong sense of seclusion as it is set in a walled garden which even has a babbling brook running through it and yet is very close to the High Street.

The property is full of fabulous period features including the tiled hallway which also has original arts and crafts wallpaper which has been lovingly cared for.

There are two good sized and characterful reception rooms. The spacious sitting room, with wood floor and fire place has large feature windows and doors leading out to the decking which leads down to the brook.

The very spacious dining room has lovely Arts and Crafts feature windows with views out over the decking towards the brook and the trees beyond, as well as stunning stained glass windows higher up on opposite wall. Bespoke shelving which houses books and also crockery and cutlery for the restaurant runs the length of one full wall, and there is a wood burner in the fire place.

The large light filled kitchen is a warm and welcoming room where you could spend many happy hours. This spacious room is dual aspect with bi fold doors which extend over one wall of the kitchen giving great views over the secluded garden and there area also windows above the sink facing out over the vegetable garden behind, with views of the attractive terrace of 18th Century workers cottages and their cottage gardens beyond. The kitchen has recently been extended and refitted with granite and beech worktops and there is underfloor heating below the flagstones. A useful laundry room is adjacent to the kitchen. As well as bi-fold doors there is access to the garden via the lobby. 

On the first floor the Master bedroom's feature window has great views over the garden and brook.  A connecting door leads to the bathroom which can also be accessed from the landing.  Two further good size bedrooms are also on this floor, as is a suite of rooms comprising of two bedrooms and a shower room (also Jack and Jill) which are let out by the owner as Airbnb. 

A further flight of stairs lead up to the second floor where there is a bedroom and a generous boarded loft which could possibly be converted to provide further accommodation (with relevant building regulations).

Steps from the ground floor lead down into a dry cellar which provided great storage space or could even be converted to a den or games room. 


The chaming gardens, with the brook running through them provide much of Brookfield's appeal.  The trees on the opposite bank are protected by preservation orders so the lovely view will remain unaltered.  The garden is secluded, and private and the house sits comfortably next to a row of weavers cottages.  There is  a covered garage space for two cars.
