Tippens Wood Farm is situated approximately a quarter of a mile from local shopping facilities and restaurants in the village of Binfield, whilst further extensive amenities may be found in Windsor and Wokingham, both of which may be easily accessed. Road communications are good with access to the M4 available via the A329M, which in turn leads to the M25 and Heathrow and access to the M3 via Junction 3. Rail connections are good with trains to London (Waterloo) available from Bracknell, approximately 2.5 miles distant, and a fast train service to Paddington (via Maidenhead) from Twyford. Leisure/sporting facilities in the area are varied, with horse racing at Ascot and Windsor, polo at Smith's Lawn and golf at the local Blue Mountain Golf Centre, Wentworth, Sunningdale and The Royal Berkshire. Binfield Village has its own cricket club, football club, tennis courts and there are many opportunities for walking in the local countryside.


Tippens Wood Farm comprises an enchanting thatched country house set within its own landscaped gardens, a detached cottage, stabling, a barn, various outbuildings and a private fishing lake, all set within 33 acres of private and secluded pastureland and woodland. The predominantly level pastureland extends to about 6.2 acres and has been fenced into individual paddocks, thereby providing immense potential for equestrian and other livestock uses. The woodland is well managed and provides considerable conservation and sporting value.

Built in 1910, the house is an attractive family home with cream elevations under a thatched roof. It has been lovingly and thoughtfully renovated by the present owners and offers immaculately presented accommodation throughout with the potential for further extension, subject to any necessary consents.

Occupying an elevated position, the house is positioned to take full advantage of its rural setting and enjoys
views over its grounds and woodland beyond. Internally, the house is light and airy and incorporates modern-day-features to satisfy the demands of a modern lifestyle, including a touch panel and programmable Lutron lighting system throughout, an integrated music system, Category 5 cables for computer networking and a state-of-the-art security camera and alarm system. The result is a most appealing home that is equally suited to both family living and formal entertaining.

The main features include:

Limestone tiled floor with under-floor heating that extends through to the kitchen/breakfast room and adjoining garden room.

White oak flooring in the reception rooms.

A spacious triple aspect drawing room with French doors opening out to a decked terrace that provides a superb vantage point from which to enjoy the outlook over the paddocks and woodland. This room benefits from an open fireplace, built-in oak storage cupboards and internal wiring for stereo speakers.

A TV/media room with built-in shelving, wiring for plasma tv, a surround-sound network with built-in (invisible) flat panel wall speakers and a closed circuit television control unit visible through television.
A dual aspect library/music room with French doors providing direct access to the gardens. This room also benefits from storage cupboards and internal wiring for stereo speakers.

A dining/sitting room featuring an open fireplace with a built-in Riva woodburner and bespoke built-in oak
shelving to the sides.

A modern kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a sleek range of glossy black units, granite worksurfaces, a double stainless steel sink unit, a waste disposal and integral appliances including a 5-ring gas hob with extractor canopy above, an oven, microwave, dishwasher and 30-bottle wine cooler. There is a recess for an American style fridge/freezer and the ceiling is fitted with speakers, for audio or television.

A bright garden room enjoying views over the gardens, paddocks and woodland beyond. Bi-folding doors on three sides open up to combine the indoor and outdoor areas.

Two further bedrooms, both dual aspect, and two bathrooms. There is also a shower room situated on the
ground floor.

Tippens Wood Farm is approached via electrically operated timber gates opening onto a driveway providing access to the front of the house and garage, in addition to parking for several vehicles. To the rear of the house, there is a large split-level hardwood decked terrace overlooking the beautifully tended gardens that are principally laid to lawn, with well-stocked flower/shrub beds and borders. The terrace, featuring low level inset lighting controlled by the Lutron system, provides superb entertaining and leisure space, further complemented by a thatched summer house with a built-in wooden table and seating
for ten people.

Detached garage with a thatched roof, constructed to echo the style of the house, and with a single electronically controlled up-and- over door. A personal door opens into a partly converted small hallway with a spiral staircase leading to a reception room and/or further bedroom above. There is electrical
installation for bathroom, shower and heated towel rail.

A single storey detached cottage comprising a hallway, a triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room complete with built-in fridge/freezer and range cooker, a utility room leading to a large office/games room fully networked with 10 plug points for computers, spot lights and double glazed window and doors.

To the rear of the cottage is a block of three large looseboxes, of concrete block construction, each with separate storage areas located behind. There is also a large storage area used for feed and tack storage which could be converted to a fourth stable.

Timber frame, traditional style hay barn with a loft above and benefiting from covered florescent strip lighting and single phase electricity. The loft is accessed via a permanent timber staircase and provides a useful storage area.

Extending to approximately 6.2 acres (2.50 ha) and divided into seven well fenced paddocks with interconnecting gates, access tracks, individual water supply and field shelters. (None of the pastureland is registered for the Single Payment Scheme or any Environmental Scheme).

A considerable asset to the property is the area of ancient woodland, extending to about 25.5 acres (10.32 ha), and containing a lake. The woodland has been expertly managed and contains a large variety of mature trees including ash, oak, sweet chestnut, beech, silver birch and shrubs including hazel, hawthorn and holly.
The woodland offers year round enjoyment from the bluebell and foxglove displays in spring, the young roe deer in summer, right through to the beautiful display of autumn colours. The woodland benefits from a number of carefully and thoughtfully placed rides, allowing scenic access throughout for walking, hacking and shooting.
The soil is classified as Wickham 4 by the Soil Survey of England and Wales. This type of soil is described as a slowly permeable seasonally waterlogged fine loamy over clayey soils associated with similar clayey soils, often with brown subsoils.

Located at the heart of the woodland within a clearing and stocked with a range of course fish including carp and tench. The lake extends to about 0.55 acres (0.22 ha) and is understood to be fed by a subterranean spring which offers the possibility for the lake to be stocked with game fish such as rainbow trout.
