Brook House is a quintessential Cotswold country house with grounds that gently slope away to the south providing views over a private rural landscape with a brook running through it. A double metal gate gives access to a gravel driveway leading to the triple garage and parking area as well as to the stabling and outbuildings, whilst a tree lined path leads to the front door.
A large and welcoming reception hall leads to the principal reception rooms, notably the vast drawing room, which overlooks and opens into the garden with a double aspect to the south and west. It has a large open fireplace and a separate reading area. The dining room similarly overlooks and opens onto the gardens and grounds via a glazed door and also opens into the kitchen/breakfast room, creating an excellent entertaining space. The kitchen, with fitted storage cabinets and modern appliances has a seating area to one end and has views to the front and rear of the property, leading through to a galleried snug room with wood burner and onto the utility room. The snug also has direct access out into the garden.
On the first floor a superb master bedroom is situated at the south west end of the property, enjoying a dressing area with built in wardrobes and leading into a large en suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle. There are three further bedrooms on this floor, all having excellent views, along with two further bath/shower rooms.
The south facing gardens are a delight, being well stocked and landscaped with a pond, a private terrace facing west for evening entertaining and leading down to a peaceful orchard. A brook runs along the boundary through the orchard and along the side of the lower paddock with a bridge leading into the far paddock beyond.
A gate beyond the stabling and outbuildings conveniently leads directly into the paddock and gives numerous opportunities for the outbuildings, either for commercial or residential use, subject to the necessary consents.

Brook House occupies a peaceful and secluded position in the pretty hamlet of Norton with its popular public house, "The Vine Tree". The ancient borough of Malmesbury lies 3 miles to the north east and the larger town of Chippenham with its main line station (London Paddington from 75 minutes) 8 miles to the south. Junction 17 of the M4 Motorway (4 miles) to the south provides easy access to Bath, Bristol, Swindon and the M4/M5 Motorway network.
There are an excellent choice of private and state schools in the area. Private schools include St. Mary's Calne, Marlborough College, Pinewood, Westonbirt, Beaudesert Park and, in Bath, Kingswood, the Royal High School and Monkton Combe. Brook House lies within Beaufort Hunt country, is close to Badminton, the polo grounds at Westonbirt and Cirencester and the Cotswold Water Parks with all associated activities.
