Child-Like Excitement

This is a house I had known, and admired from afar since I was a little boy.  I grew up in the next village, gazing from the school bus window.  I attended the nearby Thomas Mills school, although not at the same time as local hero Ed Sheeran!  On my way to school I’d often wonder ‘what’s it like inside?’ and ‘I wonder who lives there?’.  Well we now know the answer to both those questions!  Inside Broadwater is truly as breath-taking as outside.  And as to who lives there, for a week or two, it could be you!

Broadwater is Beautiful Inside and Out

Inside lies a fantasy of curved staircases, crinoline doors, huge casement windows and the space and freedom that only a classically proportioned Georgian country house can offer.  Picture this, a celebratory dinner in the dining room. Perhaps drinks in the drawing room?  An evening playing cards in the sitting room.  How about this? An informal, lazy breakfast in the kitchen, while your dogs sleep in front of the Aga.  the choice is yours!

Outside Space

Outside, your options expand along with the views.  Choices now range from a game of tennis, a dip in the pool, or drinks on the terrace.  What about a stroll around your 40 acres?  You could inspect the vines, walk amid the formal gardens or through the parkland.
