Set on the outskirts of the much favoured village of Bethersden, Grade II Listed Brissenden is a generous and beautiful country house. Elegantly proportioned and presented, the property forms part of a small and exclusive enclave of unique period buildings. Once the principal house to a small estate, Brissenden is set at the end of a long private drive and has open rural views to the rear. Set to the south of the house, and accessed separately, is a collection of unique homes, converted from a range of interesting vernacular buildings. These give Brissenden the benefit of protection and security, but in no way interfere with the overall enjoyment of the house.

Dating from the 18th Century, Brissenden has a quintessential elegant main façade; however the house has been substantially added to over the years, resulting in a property of sizeable proportions.

From the entrance vestibule, double doors open into the magnificent, galleried reception hall. This wonderful, welcoming room is the most flexible of entertaining spaces offering scope for all sorts of celebratory occasions; it is very much the heart of the house and whilst grand in its proportions it is at the same time homely and intimate. From here all the principal reception rooms are accessed.

The double aspect library has high ceilings and beautiful views over the garden. Adjacent is the elegant drawing room, a gorgeous room with double doors leading to the garden. The focal point is an open fireplace with recesses either side and, with similar high ceilings to the library, the room exudes a feeling of relaxed sophistication. The dining room is the perfect for a large family gathering; flooded with light from the south facing windows, this is one of the best rooms in the house.

The kitchen is accessed through a small passageway off the dining room and also from the hall. It is a lovely ?farmhouse? style kitchen with a good range of fitted wall and floor cupboards with granite work surfaces over. A four-oven Aga takes pride of place opposite the peninsular unit. Opposite the kitchen is a charming breakfast room. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a large sitting/family room with plenty of fitted cupboards and bookshelves.

The bifurcating staircase rises to a sizeable landing. A further short flight of steps leads to the upper landing where the two principal bedroom suites are located. The master suite has lovely views from its double aspect windows and benefits from a generous bathroom/dressing room. Opposite is the principal guest suite, similarly generous in size and with a splendid newly fitted bathroom. There are five further double bedrooms, all beautifully appointed and three further bathrooms (one en-suite).

The gardens form a wonderful park-like setting for this mature country house. With some wonderful specimen trees set in a traditional landscape, the vistas from and to the house are open and wide. Just opposite the house is a large, stone-lined pond surrounded by mature trees and shrubs.

The more formal area of the garden is to the front of the house where shrub beds border the main facade and other beds sit neatly at the base of the high brick wall that runs along the entire frontage of the property. On the southern elevation there is a wide terrace giving onto an area of level lawn. A heated swimming pool is situated in this area of the garden.
