An individual traditionally built home with separate annexe, situated in the popular village of Upper Bucklebury, Edglee House is beautifully presented both inside and out.
Edglee house is an individual house built in 1992
creating a 4 bedroom detached family home. The current owners converted the double garage to create a self-contained annexe, at this time planning permission was also granted for a detached garage to the front of the house, this can be found on West Berks, reference 17/01257/
Downstairs the porch leads to the cloak room and
an open hallway giving access to the principal rooms. A turning staircase leads to 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on the first floor.
A study is situated at the front of the house, whilst the sitting room, dining room and breakfast room all enjoy views to the rear garden. The sitting room has a woodburning stove and bay window allowing for plenty of light. The kitchen opens onto the breakfast room, which again has a bay window and side door leading to the rear garden. The dining room has French Doors giving access to the garden. On the other side of the kitchen is the utility which gives access to the side of the house and annexe. The annexe is arranged over 2 floors, creating a bedroom and shower room on the first floor and open planned kitchen/living/dining room on the ground floor and benefits from its own entrance.
In a plot of approximately a quarter of an acre
Edglee House is enclosed with mature hedging
giving plenty of privacy, a 5 bar gate leads to the
driveway providing good off-road parking. The rear garden is mostly laid to lawn, there is a terrace to the side and swimming pool which is in need of some modernisation.
