This most individual unlisted six bedroom country residence, situated in a set back, but accessible rural location on the outskirts of the village of Brookland, has over the last few years undergone some remodelling and renovation by the current owners and now provides a spacious, flexible family home with an adaptable layout. In addition to the main house, there are a number of useful outbuildings including a triple garage with inspection pit, a detached purpose built three room studio, currently used as a home office and beauty treatment business, and a pool house / gym. Melrose is situated on the edge of the Romney Marshes, surrounded by beautiful countryside, with far reaching views, and with the coast and towns of Rye, New Romney and Ashford just a short drive away, it is the perfect property for someone wanting to spend more time communing with nature while still being close to good retail, health, leisure, educational and transport facilities.

Set within the heart of the beautiful Romney Marshes and just a short drive from the coast, this property enjoys a lovely rural location and yet is still within easy reach of many local amenities. The property is set well back and approached over a long drive which leads to a large parking area to the side of the house. Behind this is the garaging which is divided into a double and single garage, all with electrically operated roller doors. NB: There is an inspection pit in the double garage for any budding mechanics.
To the rear of the house is a flat lawned garden and heated covered pool, perfect for the enjoyment of children, and behind the pool, a pool house with cloakroom, which is currently used as a gym. This property also benefits from a purpose built detached outbuilding. Although currently set up as a beauty treatment business and home office, this incredibly useful space could serve a number of different uses. Due to the fact that the property is situated in a highly desirable tourist area, it could provide a possible commercial opportunity as a holiday let or Air BnB, or additional annexe accommodation for multi-generational families, subject of course to any necessary permissions.
