Additional Information

The Owners Perspective…"For over 30 years Brooksmere has been a wonderful family home for us and our children. It has provided the space , inside and out, for a growing, energetic family and also the ability to work from home, where necessary.
Brooksmere is an attractive, red brick period house which showcases the beautiful architecture and lasting craftsmanship of the late Victorian era. It is a 'happy' house full of character and ambience and space – a lovely comfortable house in which to live.
It is close to schools and Holywood with all its amenities, but is set well back from the road to provide a calm haven away from modern life. Whether it's a barbeque in the secluded back garden, a dip in the hot tub on a cold frosty evening or the children playing ball games on the sweeping front lawn – that's part of the enjoyment of Brooksmere.
It is a house which has stood the test of time and as we are only the 5th owners in almost 130 years, past generations seem to have viewed it as we do"
