Property Description

Full description

Superbly situated along a prestigious, tree-lined private road on the outskirts of the historic village of Sonning, this impressive 4 bedroom detached family home provides beautifully proportioned living accommodation in a highly sought after location. It features extensive private grounds in excess of 0.75 of an acre, a large kitchen/breakfast room and 4 good sized reception rooms, including a stunning 26' sitting room and a 24' dining room.


The property is approached via a large block-paved, in-and-out driveway through twin ornate Italian, solid steel electric gates leading to a large parking area and the garages. The covered porch and front door gives access to the Reception Hall, where the Sitting Room, Kitchen / Breakfast Room, Cloakroom and Stairs are accessible.

The large Kitchen/Breakfast Room overlooks the rear garden and patio and comes fitted with a range of 'farmhouse' oak style wooden cupboards/dresser units and a sink with waste disposal unit and water softener. Cooking is carried out on a large electric NEF hob with built-in double electric and microwave ovens. Door through to the Utility Room with plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher and an external side door.

From the Kitchen area a door leads into the impressive 24' Dining Room. This large and spacious, triple aspect room, overlooks the rear, south-facing gardens and is the central hub for family entertaining. With double French doors leading directly onto the patio and gardens on one side and double doors leading through to the adjacent Sitting Room on the other, this room offers great flexibility for the family.

The 26' Sitting Room faces the front and overlooks the driveway and gardens on the northern side of the house. Another very spacious room, with bay window, an additional bar/entertaining area and a beautiful feature fireplace made from Italian marble.

Through the Sitting Room, a hallway leads to a Home Office/ Study (with internal door access to the garage), an additional downstairs Bathroom and finally, the Family/Playroom with built in storage and rear door access to the gardens. This wing of the house could easily be converted into a self-contained annexe or separate guest suite.

From the upstairs landing, all the bedrooms are accessible. The light and spacious Master Bedroom, with built-in cupboards and drawers, has lovely views overlooking the rear gardens, especially from its stunning roof terrace. Through to the side aspect Dressing Room with built-in wardrobes and door through to En Suite Bathroom, comprising bath, fitted sink and WC.

With pleasant views over-looking the front gardens, Bedroom 2 benefits from having door access through to a further room (3.12 x 2.49m) with part-restricted head room and currently used as useful additional storage space.

Towards one end of the Landing, with step-down entry, lies Bedroom 3. This dual aspect room, affords views to the front and rear of the house.

The Family Bathroom is light and spacious with a rear aspect having, a modern suite comprising a corner bath, pedestal sink and WC. Adjacent to this is Bedroom 4 with rear aspect.


Attached double garage with electric doors, power and light. Additional, single side door access from driveway into the garage and further internal access door to Study Room. The front garden is securely enclosed by the twin electric gates and matching ornate fencing, and is mainly laid to lawn, with some mature shrubs along the boundary fences.

Down the left hand side of the property a 5-bar gate gives access to the rear, south facing gardens. Directly to the rear of the house and accessed from either this side gate, the French double doors off the Dining Room or the single Kitchen door, is the large paved patio area and Summerhouse.

Beyond the patio, the large garden is initially mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs planted along the boundary borders and a useful large storage shed. The garden then takes on a more natural feel as it climbs up a landscaped bank. Paved steps lead up through this bank to a beautiful woodland area which is an oasis of peace and tranquility, surrounded by a number of mature specimen trees.
