Brook House

Tucked away on a substantial plot in the centre of Stokesley lies Brook House. Originally built in 1671, the property overlooks the River Leven to the front, with a tree-lined walkway to the centre of town, just a short distance away. An impressive reception hall gives access to the living and dining rooms, both with bay windows overlooking the river. From here, the central staircase winds up to two storeys, with views overlooking the rear garden and Cleveland Hills beyond. The large family room opens up to the garden and entertaining patio and has an original window looking back towards the river. The kitchen/dining room gives access to a large utility room, which incorporates a cloakroom/w.c and leads out to the rear garden. A further cloakroom and shower, accessed from the hallway, complete the ground floor accommodation. The characterful staircase has arched alcoves and opens on to the first floor landing, which has a window overlooking the rear garden. The master bedroom benefits from an en suite bathroom as well as views towards the Cleveland Hills, with the remaining four bedrooms being serviced by the family bathroom. Two large attic rooms, accessed directly from the staircase to the second floor, complete the accommodation.

Externally

Brook House is approached via the scenic, tree lined Levenside and is accessed via a substantial gated driveway, providing ample parking. The walled rear garden is afforded a high degree of privacy and benefits from a southerly aspect in which to enjoy the entertaining patio terracing as well as the well-stocked borders and the small orchard area at the southerly end of the garden.

Agent's Note

The current owners of Brook House have an opportunity to convert the next door barn, which has the benefit of full planning permission. The owners are happy to discuss the details and timing of this conversion with a potential buyer of Brook House and have any agreements written into the sales contracts.

If, however, a potential buyer is interested in purchasing the barn then this may be possible by separate negotiation. Planning permission was granted for a conversion of the existing barn and outbuildings to form a single and substantial dwelling. The good-sized gardens to the barn also benefit from a southerly aspect and are mainly laid to lawn with private and secure boundaries. For further details on price to include this, please contact the agent. Any information in relation to the barn conversion planning please refer to Hambleton District Planning, application number 17/1570/FUL
