The home was built in 1910, the last year of Edward VII's reign, by acclaimed local architect Burgess & Brown.

Broomhill, which retains many period features and is included in Sir Nikolaus Pevsner's 'Buildings of England' series, is on the market for the first time in more than 38 years.

"Broomhill has been a much loved family home for almost forty years; it is a most outstanding Edwardian house with wonderful period charm," property agent Alexander McNab said.
