A wonderful 6 bedroom house dating set in glorious grounds of approximately 3.7 acres
A wonderful period house believed to date from the 1830s when the original portion of the property formed a cottage on the Yattendon Estate. Natural light fills the house which has been sympathetically enlarged and completely modernised while keeping its character. High ceilings and beautiful old oak beams have been cleverly incorporated into this spacious house providing excellent accommodation of nearly 5000 sq ft.
The house is approached through attractive electric wrought iron gates with a sweeping drive leading up to a large parking area and double garage.
The gardens and grounds extend to approximately 3.7 acres and would ideally lend themselves to be used as paddocks for horses. Gardens surround the house and are designed to provide colour all year round. South facing terrace, herbaceous borders, shrubberies and vegetable plots combine with wildflower areas, wildlife pond, fruit trees and expansive grassed areas to be a relaxing haven for both humans and wildlife.
