Bromells is a beautiful Grade II listed home built in 1891. The house was built in the late Victorian country style and still features a lot of period features. The house is located of a quiet country road in Beare Green, it’s one of those houses that camouflaged by mature trees giving you total privacy.
Even though the house is Graded the current owners have refurbished and extended the house both internally and externally, and have done so with love and great attention to detail and this is so clear to see. The one thing I love about period homes is the space that they offer. They have a certain charm to the way the house was built not all rooms are square, or rectangular they have their own quirks about them and that’s what makes it pleasurable owning a period home.
What I like about Broomells is that the owners have used those quirks to their advantage and built on them instead eradicating them, granted not many changes can be made to a Graded home but some people lose the things that made it special, not in this home.
The Kitchen is a wonderful entertaining space I love the stone floors all the colours work, its modern but the exposed bricks give it and edge of character with it the sky light obviously give the room more light and feel of space. I also like how the space is divided, you have like a mini sitting room as well as a breakfast bar and dining area so you can have conversations with somewhere where they are in the room comfortably it’s got it all going on. The Cinema room isn’t one of the grandest I’ve seen but it fits in with the style of the house, the same with the bathroom, it been done with a style in mid but whilst also trying to be modern, I’m not a fan of roll top baths or those bathrooms in particular but for this house I can see how they work. All in all a beautiful family home with great period features, stunning views, country location and more or less everything you could want from a home to grow into for a great price
