The property

Bromily is a substantial country house, recently constructed to an extremely high specification. The property is nestled in private and mature gardens, with excellent ancillary accommodation ideally suited for guest and staff accommodation or the perfect place to work from home.

The property was built in 2012 by the current owners and is finished to an exacting standard with tasteful fixtures and fittings, intelligent home system and a host of modern conveniences.

Beautiful solid American walnut has been used throughout the property for the internal doors, bespoke kitchen, butler’s pantry and utility room units. There is underfloor heating throughout the entire ground and first floor, a passive vent system, Moleanos limestone flooring in most of the ground floor and decorative cornicing.

From the front entrance, double doors lead into the lobby and then into the vast reception hall with elegant central staircase which is a real focal point. This space is excellent when entertaining with its central position within the house. There are double doors to the kitchen and all reception rooms, as well as two sets of French doors to the rear sun terrace along with access to the guest cloakroom and WC.

Three generous reception rooms comprise the drawing room with dual aspect, bay window and living flame gas fire within an attractive limestone fireplace, a study/library with fitted cupboards and bookcase, and the dining room with solid oak flooring, bay window and access to the butler’s pantry with fitted cupboards.

The real hub of the house is the superb open plan kitchen/dining/garden room with bespoke fitted kitchen containing two Neff ovens, two Bosch dishwashers, two Neff warming drawers, microwave, steam oven, Miele coffee machine, waste disposal and Quooker tap.

This fabulous space has a huge area for dining and informal living space, with each window providing lovely views of the gardens. Off the kitchen is the utility room with the same style of fitted walnut units, granite surfaces and large sink, with additional access to outside.

To the first floor is a galleried landing with a continuation of the elegant staircase balustrade and wrought iron decorative spindles, with a reading area. The exquisite principal bedroom suite has a fully fitted dressing room, en-suite bathroom with free standing bath, WC, twin basins on vanity unit with marble surface, double shower, and balcony overlooking the garden.

There are three further bedrooms on this floor, all with en-suite facilities and one with balcony overlooking the garden.

A further staircase to the second floor leads to a further bedroom suite, a fantastic huge bedroom with adjoining sitting room and an en-suite shower and steam room. Also on the second floor is a further landing with WC and two store rooms housing the boilers and pressurised water cylinders.

Garaging and ancillary accommodation

A detached two-storey quadruple garage offers fantastic garaging facilities to the ground floor with two double garages with electrically operated doors, workshop and storage space, utility/boot room and gardener’s WC.

A central hallway can be independently accessed and has a staircase leading to the first floor luxury apartment. This generous annexe continues the high specification from the main house and comprises open plan kitchen/dining/living room which includes a fully fitted solid American walnut kitchen with granite surfaces, Siemens oven, microwave, gas hob and integral fridge freezer.

There is a most spacious bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a stylish bathroom with free standing bath, WC, wash basin and separate shower. This apartment is perfect for a variety of uses including guest, staff or dependent relative accommodation, or would be equally suited to use as a home office or treatment room.


An imposing gated entrance with high stone walls and wrought iron electrically operated gates opens to reveal a wonderful block-paved sweeping driveway which runs through the mature plot and leads to the front of the house and garaging.

The property is cloaked by a variety of mature deciduous and evergreen trees which provide a high degree of privacy and shelter. The generous plot is mainly large expanses of lawn with stone flagged terraces to the front and rear of the house, offering several places to enjoy the sun throughout the day and early evening.

To the rear there are flower beds with variety of plants, shrubs and small trees, and a good sized summerhouse with decked area. The ancillary utility room is easily accessible from the summerhouse and makes a useful kitchen area for barbecues on the decking.
