Yattendon is an extremely pretty village in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Many of the village houses are still owned by the Yattendon estate, which means properties in the area are rarely available.

The village retains a superb character and good local facilities
including a general store and post office, a butcher and greengrocers, a hairdressers, and The Royal Oak Hotel and restaurant. The surrounding countryside gives ample possibilities for exploration via footpaths or bridleways.

Description

The property was once the home of the Iliffe family following their move from Basildon Park. The property was converted approximately 40 years ago in to 14 individual apartments in a unique parkland setting. The village of Yattendon and the surrounding land are still largely owned and managed by Yattendon Estates.

Yattendon Court is entered through heavy oak double doors into a lobby with access to a post room and cloak room. A further set of double doors opens into a grand reception hall of double height, panelled and with a stone fireplace and magnificent staircase to the first floor. 2 Yattendon Court is accessed directly off this reception hall.

The front door to the apartment opens on to a spacious reception hall with exposed timber floors and giving access to all rooms.

The sitting/dining room benefits from a bay window to the south overlooking the gardens and providing an outstanding view. There is a feature fireplace providing a focal point, while there are also exposed wooden floors and coving to the ceiling. There is a fitted display cabinet and a door in to the kitchen/breakfast room.

The kitchen is fitted with a range of wood fronted floor and wall units, with a breakfast bar in front of the window. Beyond the kitchen there is a utility room with space for a dishwasher and washing machine.

Both bedrooms have French doors on to the terrace where there is a loggia for alfresco dining.

There is plenty of storage with the apartment provided by attic spaces and trapdoor access under floor storage and there is a further cellar storage area

Outside, Yattendon Court is approached through impressive gated pillars and up a long private driveway through mature parkland to the gravelled parking area.

The grounds are a particular feature of the property and include sweeping lawns with specimen trees, a sunken Italian garden with pond and a loggia. The gardens have great views to the south. There is a garage in a separate block together with a car wash area.
