Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Coach House, is the former stables to The Old Rectory, converted to an elegant L-shaped two storey house around a courtyard with a beautiful part-walled garden. The rooms on the ground floor all benefit from high ceilings, generous windows and a natural flow from room to room. The current owners from 2006 revisited the conversion and further restored the building and improved its design with very clever use of the original features and modern technology. They have created a fine and balanced house with three reception rooms, four bedrooms and ample cleverly concealed storage.

On entering through the enclosed porch the front door opens to the passage leading to the dining room with a solid oak floor and chimney breast housing a gas fire and large, shaker style dresser (available by separate negotiation).

The sitting room is triple aspect with interesting arched shaped windows. The good-sized conservatory, which is the width of the house, enjoys a fabulous outlook over the garden and opens to a brick paved seating area. The ‘chef's’ kitchen is comprehensively equipped with a range of Miele appliances, including steam oven, double fan oven, warming oven and gas wok burner There is an extensive range of fitted units, one housing the concealed dishwasher, and there are plenty of drawers to both sides of the room with a high, deep, solid oak shelf over to one side. The remaining worktops are Silestone. Beyond is the utility room and the back door opening to a rear yard.

The ground floor has an L-shaped footprint with one wing housing two of the bedrooms, generous bathroom and a study. Before the house was converted, the end bedroom was reportedly used by the village for parish council and Scout meetings, as well as a reading room and Scout hut.

The first floor is reached via an unusual ‘Y’ shaped staircase. The landing divides to the two bedroom suites, the master bedroom is generous in size and fitted with a range of oak wardrobes. It has its own private en suite with rain shower. Off the landing is a large easily accessed storage area housing the Valliant gas boiler. Off the other wing is another good-sized bedroom with private facilities.

The village of Sherfield on Loddon is a popular village with a thriving local community, mostly centered around a large semi-rural village green. There is a wide range of local amenities including the St Leonards Church, two public houses, post office and coffee shop, village shop and butcher, village hall, Sherfield School and Sherfield Oaks Golf Course.

More comprehensive shopping, educational and recreational facilities can be found in the regional centres of Basingstoke and Reading. Sherfield on Loddon is strategically well placed for local and regional communication being situated adjacent to the A33 and convenient for the M3 at (J6) and the M4 (J11). The local station to Basingstoke and Reading is in the nearby village of Bramley. A fast railway service runs to London (Reading to Paddington or Basingstoke to Waterloo).

The house is approached via a gravel drive to The Old Rectory. The entrance to the courtyard is through original high brick walls. To one side is a large garage/workshop and beyond, a wrought iron gate opens to the beautiful enclosed garden. The design of the garden has been meticulously thought through with densely planted borders, raised beds, a lawn, formal pond, Victorian-style greenhouse and garden shed. Closer to the house, next to the conservatory, is a brick paved terrace. The garden is regularly and understandably open for the National Gardens Scheme events.
