Brook Cottage Situated in the sought-after village of Brook, the property enjoys a particularly picturesque south-facing location, at the end of a private lane, surrounded by mature woodland and fields. There are stunning views of both the English Channel and surrounding downland. This quiet, secluded position provides an exceptional opportunity. The stone house is believed to originate from 1894 and has generally light accommodation with large windows making the most of the views over its mature grounds and the surroundings. The property would now benefit from refurbishment and modernisation. The grounds include a variety of mature trees and a former tennis lawn whilst the western side of the property has been replanted with predominantly young oak trees.

Brook Cottage is situated just over half a mile from Brook Bay as the crow flies and is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with National Trust owned downland to the rear. The area has some of the Island's most scenic coastal and country walks. Brook beach and the adjacent Compton are popular with swimmers, surfers and kite surfers and forms part of the Island's Heritage Coastline. The nearby village of Brighstone (approximately 2½ miles away) has a range of local shopping facilities, whilst there is a pub a short walk away in nearby Hulverstone. Freshwater is easily accessed being about 4 miles along the scenic coastal road and provides a further range of shops and supermarkets. Yarmouth with its popular harbour, range of restaurants, shops and ferry links to Lymington is about 5 miles away.
