Introducing Brooke English Manor Home
This stunning lakeside home was created by Mike and Marilyn Stopka in 2011. Inspired by their world travels and passion for European antiques, Brooke English Manor is an authentic English country manor home boasting 6 bedrooms, 40 foot high ceilings in the grand hall and an exquisite master suite. Set over 4 stories with lift access, this home and surrounding manicured gardens casts a regal appearance, complemented by a large sweeping driveway.
Grand Entrance Hall
Upon entering the Brooke English Manor visitors are met with a custom designed chandelier and an impressive double story ceiling.
Bathed in Light
Due the wall of windows at the rear of the hall, guests are both bathed in light and treated to a view of Goose Lake.
From the entrance hall visitors are able to access the Great Room, accommodating family room, library or climb the sweeping staircase to the upper floors.
The Great Room
50+ Leadlight windows
Mike's favourite room features hand carved wood panelling throughout, 55 leadlight windows and custom designed marble flooring, to evoke memories of a Scottish Castle.
Whilst the Grand Hall comfortably accommodates a 16 seat dining table, there is also a spacious lounge with a solid fuel fireplace to enjoy.
Show Piece Ceiling
The Great Room's three storey high vaulted ceiling in the show piece of the property. The grandeur of the hall is further accentuated by both beams and walls of south facing windows.
The marble floors and hand carved circular wooden shelving continue on into the library, with a stain glass ceiling light.
The library can be accessed from the grand entrance or through the well lit family gallery.
Open Plan Kitchen
This well designed informal breakfast room allows visitors to enjoy views of Goose Lake.
The fully equip kitchen offers a professional range, double fridge and large island.
Whilst Brooke English Manor features 5 bedrooms, the master suite is the jewel, with adjoining lounge, en-suite and balconies.
The master suite features airy vaulted ceilings with a custom designed chandelier and double lead light doors on to a private balcony.
Stained Glass Windows
Each guest room is beautifully appointed with custom designed stained glass windows, as well as chandeliers.
