The Pippins is believed to originate from the early 19th Century and was once the village public house. It offers a wealth of character and charm with elegant, well proportioned reception rooms and many period features. Its layout makes the most of the garden views and south facing aspect.

A superb extension to the side now offers a beautiful kitchen/breakfast room which has individually designed and hand built painted cabinetry. Double sets of French doors make this a bright and cheerful room and open out to the rear terrace. A useful utility area also has access to the garden.

The property benefits from a cellar, entered by a hatch in the dining room and currently used for wine storage.

Upstairs there is a superb master bedroom suite with walk in dressing area and bathroom, full length windows flood the room with light and offer a contemporary edge. From the central landing, there are 4 further double bedrooms, 1 en-suite bathroom and a family bathroom.

The Pippins stands in the attractive rural Berkshire village of Brimpton which has a church, pub, general store and village hall. The village lies to the south of the A4 between Reading, Newbury and Basingstoke. All the towns have excellent leisure, cultural and shopping facilities and train services to London. Reading has a direct service to Paddington and Basingstoke direct to Waterloo.

The M4 (Jct 12) is about 9 miles away and provides trunk road access to London and its airports, and the West Country. The M3 (Jct 6) is also 14 miles away.

The surrounding countryside is beautiful and features rolling hills and a river valley along which the river Kennet runs and the Kennet and Avon canal passes through.

The area is particularly well served by an excellent range of schooling and recreational facilities for all requirements. Of particular note are Bradfield College, Pangbourne College, St Gabriels, Downe House, Elstree, Horris Hill and Cheam.

The Pippins is approached via a gravel driveway with parking for several vehicles and access to the double garage. The front gardens are laid to lawn with a variety of mature fruit trees.

The main gardens lay to the rear, are fully enclosed, private and surrounded by mature dedging and trees. A lovely terrace wraps around the rear of the property with smart box hedge planting and provides views across the gardens.
