The Owners Perspective...

Brooksmere is an attractive, red brick period house which showcases the beautiful architecture and lasting craftsmanship of the late Victorian era. It is a 'happy' house full of character and ambience and space - a lovely comfortable house in which to live.
It is close to schools and Holywood with all its amenities, but is set well back from the road to provide a calm haven away from modern life. Whether it's a barbeque in the secluded back garden, a dip in the hot tub on a cold frosty evening or the children playing ball games on the sweeping front lawn - that's part of the enjoyment of Brooksmere.
It is a house which has stood the test of time and as we are only the 5th owners in almost 130 years, past generations seem to have viewed it as we do"
