Westbrook House boasts a stunning array of period features throughout including inglenook fireplaces, flagstone and polished wooden floors in its principle reception rooms, and sash windows to the front façade alongside casement windows to the rear.
The ground floor comprises a drawing room with inglenook fireplace, wood-burning stove and polished wood floor; study with inglenook fireplace and flagstone floor; dining room and sitting room; bespoke kitchen and adjoining utility room with painted shaker units, granite worktops, Belfast sink, and travertine flooring with underfloor heating throughout. The three principle reception rooms face the front of the property, with the 4th, a sitting room, facing the rear garden. Upstairs is home to the master bedroom, with two further bedrooms, and a family bathroom boasting a white suite, travertine flooring and underfloor heating. All four rooms have sash windows to the front. The master bedroom also has a casement window to the rear looking out over the rear garden to Folly Wood and Pilton Hill. The third has a second sash window to the side looking over the churchyard to the village green and Worminster Down beyond. Bedroom four boasts an open beam ceiling and a Fired Earth ensuite bathroom with travertine flooring and underfloor heating. It is located above the Sitting Room in the old barn which was incorporated into the domestic accommodation of the property approximately 10 years ago. This wing of the house would lend itself perfectly to provide the option for independent living for an individual if this was required.
In addition the property has benefitted from planning consents to extend to provide further accommodation.
