Attractive family home on the village green with open views to the rear


Situated in the charming Oxfordshire hamlet of Dunsden Green, which is mentioned in the Domesday book in 1086 and is known for being the home of Wilfred Owen between 1911 - 1913 as the lay assistant to the parish priest. There is a village hall, church and a village orchard planted in 2007, set behind the village green. The nearby towns of Caversham, Reading and Henley-on-Thames have extensive shopping, educational and leisure facilities. The mainline station in Reading provides fast access to London Paddington (from 25 minutes) and the M4 J10 is approximately 6 miles away providing access to the M25, London, Heathrow Airport and the West Country.


Yew Tree Cottage is a charming detached home dating back we believe to the mid 1800s with later additions. The property offers spacious, light and airy accommodation throughout. The large reception hall leads to all ground floor rooms and also has a study area. The dining room is in the oldest part of the cottage with a feature open fireplace and double doors through to the sitting room. The sitting room is a large room with two sets of double doors opening on to the garden, enjoying the views over open fields. To the front of the cottage is the family room with vaulted ceiling and doors to the conservatory. The kitchen/breakfast room overlooks the garden and fields and is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units with granite work surfaces, integrated appliances, range style cooker and central island. Double doors open on to the patio and a further door leads through to the conservatory. There is also a cloakroom. To the first floor the master bedroom has a Juliet balcony and doors out to a small roof terrace, all with lovely views across open fields and beyond, a dressing room and en suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms (one with en suite) and a family bathroom.

Outside To the side of the property there is a large gravel driveway providing parking for several vehicles and leads to the detached garage with power, light and plumbing. The rear garden measures just over 1/4 acre and is of a south westerly aspect and backs on to open fields. The garden has been beautifully landscaped with mature, well stocked flower borders and the remainder of the garden laid to lawn with a paved patio area, an additional decked seating area and orchard with a variety of fruit trees


Leave Henley-on-Thames via the A4155 Reading Road. Continue on this road through Shiplake for approximately 5 miles in the direction of Reading. At the roundabout turn right signposted to Dunsden, continue in to the village and take the 1st left turn in to Church Lane. Yew Tree Cottage can be found after a short distance on the left hand side
