A superb family house with wonderful grounds in a secluded position


Neats House is quietly situated on the edge of Headley overlooking its wonderful gardens. The village itself offers a community post office/village shop and a church. The property is well located for Cheam School being half a mile distant in addition to other private schools nearby including Horris Hill, Elstree, Thorngrove, Bradfield, Downs House and St Gabrials. There are numerous footpaths and bridleways in the area set amongst some glorious countryside.

Communications are excellent by road via the A339 onto the
M3 or to the A34 onto the M4. Regular train services run from
Basingstoke to London Waterloo and from Newbury to London
Paddington. The popular village of Kingsclere some 3 miles distant has wonderful local amenities with a more wider range of facilities in either Basingstoke or Newbury.


Neats House has been extensively extended and remodelled during the past 12 months to provide for wonderful family accommodation on 3 floors. There is a fantastic reception hall which gives access to all the main south facing reception rooms. There is a good sized study off the morning room with a great family room off the kitchen/breakfast room. All the south facing rooms have access onto the terrace overlooking the gardens. There are 6 excellent bedrooms on the first floor, 4 being en suite and 2 further bedrooms sharing a bath and shower room. Further accommodation can be found on the top floor which if not used as a playroom or cinema could easily provide for more bedrooms.

Gardens and Grounds

The house is approached from a quiet lane through electric gates, up a short drive leading to a large gravelled parking area in front of the house. The house sits well within the gardens overlooking large areas of lawns, ornamental trees, shrub borders and flower beds. Many of the shrubs include Rhododendron, magnolia and camellia, in addition to kiwi, medlar and quince. There are also some vines. Beyond the gardens is the pony paddock with stabling benefiting from a separate entrance. In addition to the lovely woodland, there are numerous mature trees on the property giving the house a splendid setting. There is a studio private yet within the
garden which although in need of repair could easily provide further accommodation as a separate annexe or office.
