This stunning Grade II listed house dates, we believe, from c1610 with Victorian and later additions. The property was completely renovated in 2003 and has been sympathetically further extended by the current owners. Dairy Cottage offers the best of both worlds with many individual period features on display as well as contemporary spaces and fittings which provide all the conveniences of a modern house. Of particular note is the vaulted ceiling in the Library, which is a bright double aspect room, with large bay window and feature archway. The fireplaces are also noteworthy, with the Dining Hall having an exposed bressumer beam and brick fireplace with a wood burning stove and the first floor landing featuring a small fireplace with wooden bressumer and an original oak door side cupboard.
Arranged over two floors, Dairy Cottage boasts spacious and flexible family accommodation. In addition to the Library and Dining Hall, the downstairs consists of a front lobby entered through a colonnaded veranda, study, drawing room, kitchen, utility room, rear lobby and cloakroom. There is also a contemporary breakfast atrium with underfloor heating and bifold doors that open directly onto a large patio area. Bespoke oak joinery has been used throughout, with solid oak flooring and two oak stable doors to the rear. Upstairs, in addition to the feature landing fireplace, there is a master bedroom with en suite, 2 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. All the bedrooms have views looking out over the garden and parkland beyond.
Outside the house is surrounded on three sides by beautifully landscaped private gardens that offer uninterrupted views out over the communal parkland beyond. A patio runs along the rear of the house and is accessed from not only the utility room but the breakfast room and drawing room as well, making it the perfect place for al fresco dining/entertaining. In the Western corner of the garden is a summer house that looks down over the gardens and has wonderful views out over the landscape beyond. At the opposite end of the garden tucked away behind the large oak framed garage is a delightful decking area and ornamental pond that provides a quiet corner in which to enjoy the long summer evenings. An external staircase leads up the side of the oak framed garage to a large room, currently used as a gym and games room, with views out over the parkland.
Brockham Park itself is a modern development of 34 Arts & Crafts style properties constructed in 2004 all set within 33 acres of parkland with 3 private tennis courts. The Park also includes three refurbished houses (of which Dairy Cottage is one) and the conversion of Brockham Park House, a large manor, into 11 apartments.
