Tenure: Freehold

Substantial wing of an impressive house providing versatile accommodation in this sought after position. Tile Barn House is situated in a private lane and is a rare private house listed as the work of Victorian architect George Gilbert Scott.


Tile Barn House is part of the original country house of the Tile Barn private estate, a highly regarded area within the much sought after village of Woolton Hill - centrally placed but secluded from roads and traffic. The village is close to the market town of Newbury with excellent road and rail connections. Officially designated an Area of Outstanding Beauty, within a few minutes you can find a maze of country lanes, footpaths and National Trust woodland in which to explore the area.

In the immediate vicinity there is a GP surgery, village shop with post office, a public house, well regarded primary school and junior schools, church, village hall with a pre-school nursery, and a thriving tennis club.

Newbury itself offers a comprehensive range of shopping, recreational and leisure facilities including racing at Newbury racecourse. There are several golf courses nearby and several fitness centres. Local theatres include the Corn Exchange and the nationally recognised Watermill at Bagnor.


The property is the work of leading Victorian architect Sir George Gilbert Scott and dates to the 1860s. The Grade II listed building is built of brick and flint elevations with considerable detailing including Italian portrait busts representing months of the year. The house is built in the gothic revival style and is one of only three local dwellings referenced in Pevsner's Buildings of England.

Internally the house offers some stunning living spaces, including the sitting room and drawing room both offering views over the gardens. The property also benefits from having the original grand galleried staircase with a large leaded window allowing light to flood in. The bedroom accommodation is also superb, with 2/3 bedrooms on the first floor, including a master suite with dressing room and bathroom and a further four bedrooms on the second floor offering plenty of space for a family or visiting guests.

The property also benefits from excellent cellars, with original brick pillars and barrel vaulted ceilings, including the original wine cellar and a laundry area, with other rooms offering spaces for storage or workshops or more subject to further development.

Outside, the property is approached from the private lane over a parking area with space for several cars. The gardens lie to the south of the house and are mainly laid to lawn with a paved terrace and large patio area directly outside the drawing room.

Square Footage: 6,060 sq ft
