Full description

Spring Copse was built in the 1980's set in an elevated position surrounded by woodland making the most of the views across its own extensive grounds.

The ground floor leading off the vaulted hallway comprises a large refurbished kitchen/breakfast room and 3 generous reception rooms which open out onto the Spanish style arched terrace offering wonderful views across the gardens and grounds.

Upstairs there are 6 bedrooms, the master suite being of particular note with its large bathroom and dressing room and enviable views. Most of the bedrooms open out onto a wisteria clad balcony which runs the length of the house.

Spring Copse is situated at the top of a long private drive in the heart of Hermitage; a convenient and popular village with a good range of local facilities including a village shop and post office, pub, primary school, village hall and butcher.

The attractive market town of Newbury is just 5 miles away and offers a more comprehensive range of amenities including a main line station serving London, Paddington in just under an hour.

The M4 (J13) is just 3 miles away and, along with the A34, provides trunk road access to the north, south, east and west.

The local area is served well by an excellent range of schooling for all requirements, in particular Brockhurst and Marlston House, Cheam, St Gabriel's, Downe House, Elstree and Cothill. The property is also situated within the catchment area of The Downs School, Compton which is locally renowned and highly sought after.

The surrounding countryside is renowned for its walks and rides and there is direct access onto the Common.

The gardens and grounds are a particular highlight of this property offering complete privacy. At the rear of the house the gardens are approached through a series of terraces leading to the swimming pool, seating areas and a superb fish pond currently home to about 200 carp.

The mature gardens and woodland extend to around 10 acres and provide a stunning backdrop.

There are several useful outbuildings used for garaging, storage and office space. There is also a substantial wood burner in one of the outbuildings which is linked to the house and can be used as a replacement hot water and heating provision whenever necessary.
