Bridge End House, is one of Brampton’s most notable and historical Grade II listed residential properties. This elegant family home is believed to date from the early 1700’s and has been well-maintained and significantly improved by the present owners. Whilst many improvements have been carried out, such as - the installation of a modern heating system and the re-fitting of the kitchen and shower room, the owners have been particularly sympathetic towards the original charm and architectural character of the building.

The impressive main entrance leads to a beautiful hall with feature oak wooden staircase, parquet herringbone flooring and wooden panelling. This spacious entrance hall provides access to the ground floor accommodation to include two reception rooms, formal dining room, study, boot room and shower room.

To the front of the property, there are two generously proportioned reception rooms which enjoy aspects to the front and side with restored sash windows and secondary glazing. Both rooms are cosy, and each feature open fireplaces, exposed timber beams, brass wall lighting and gas fired radiator heating.

The study sits behind the dining room with a large window to the side aspect. There is also a shower room on the ground floor which has been completed to a high specification, fitted in a contemporary style with mosaic tiled flooring and partially tiled walls.

Across the hall is a further generous reception/family room. A window provides garden views, and a set of glazed timber French doors lead to the charming courtyard garden. Features include quarry tiling, inglenook fireplace with timber bressummer and brick surround period style wall lighting.

Off the family room is a delightful kitchen/breakfast room, beautifully appointed in a contemporary, yet traditional style with bespoke timber cabinetry. This immense space which includes an exposed brick wall and roof timbers, offers a fabulous space for entertaining and daily family life. A dual aspect, which includes two sash windows and side door, provides a wealth of natural light and courtyard garden views. A separate utility room completes this area and provides additional kitchen storage. The relevant services are connected for utilities.

An open period oak staircase leads to the first-floor galleried landing. At one end of the landing there are four bedrooms and at the other, the family bathroom and principal bedroom suite. The principal suite is a particularly impressive space, boastful of its exposed timber beams which partially divide this wonderful room.
There is modern en-suite shower room and a large walk-in wardrobe / dressing area with generous eaves storage. Of the remaining four bedrooms, three are good size double rooms which comfortably accommodate large furniture, with the fifth bedroom serving well as a single guest bedroom or nursery.

The family bathroom has been finished to a very good standard, fitted in a traditional style comprising three-piece suite and window to side aspect.

Outside, the property is set back from Buckden Road and securely accessed through remote controlled electronic double gates leading to a gravelled driveway, which provides ample off-road parking arrangements for several large vehicles. The main garden has been laid to lawn and privately enclosed with a tall brick wall, timber panel fencing and is well stocked with a selection of mature shrubs and trees. This wonderful outdoor space provides the perfect spot for playing and entertaining guests. A pathway wraps around the footprint of the property and leads to an elegant and beautifully landscaped central courtyard which sits between the main house and the annexe, perfectly positioned for catching the morning sun and al fresco dining. Once a piggery in earlier times, there is a detached outbuilding/ annexe arranged over two floors and extending to some 960sqft2, providing the scope for further development and use subject to the relevant planning consents.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
