Burgess House is situated within the Conservation Area on the edge of the village of Heckfield enjoying southerly views over open countryside. Communications are excellent with the M3 (J5) and M4 (J11) being equal distance (about 6 miles) and with regular rail services to London Waterloo via Basingstoke, Hook or Winchfield stations.

The nearby towns of Hook and Hartley Wintney offer sufficient facilities to cater for most day to day requirements, and the larger towns of Reading and Basingstoke both offer an extensive range of leisure, recreational and educational facilities. Nearby schools include Daneshill, St Neots, Wellington College, Bradfield College, The Abbey, Leighton Park and The Oratory.


Burgess House is a comfortable family house offering well-proportioned accommodation which offers great potential to remodel and improve. Originally a Georgian estate house, probably dating from the late 18th Century, the property was substantially extended during the 1950s before it was Listed Grade II. The original half retains much of its period character with exposed beams and fireplaces whilst the extended half provides a spacious reception hall and first floor landing with a fine principal reception room and master bedroom suite. Each of the principal rooms enjoys southerly views over the garden and paddock to farmland beyond.

On the ground floor, the front door opens to the reception hall from which the principal staircase rises to the galleried first floor landing. To one side is the triple aspect drawing room with stone surround open fireplace, and to the other is the dining room, with brick built fireplace, beyond which is the sitting room with beamed ceiling and original brick backed open fireplace with timber mantle, between the latter is the secondary staircase rising to the original first floor landing. The kitchen is accessed from both the sitting room and dining room and has a two oven Aga with additional hob and oven and a range of hand painted units with solid wood work-surfaces. To one end the kitchen opens to the glazed breakfast room/ conservatory which overlooks the rear courtyard, and in addition, there is a utility room and a cloakroom.

On the first floor, the master bedroom has an en-suite dressing room and bathroom and there are four further bedrooms and a family bathroom and a shower room.


The property is approached from the lane over a gated gravel driveway which leads to the detached double garage set to one side of the house, between which there is a courtyard garden. The garden lies primarily to the front and to one side of the house. It is principally laid to lawn with a number of mature trees and shrubs and there is a swimming pool with a paved terrace. In addition there is a paddock. In all, the grounds extend to about 1.75 acres.
