Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Five Meadows is a substantial property set well back from the road behind electric gates and high hedging. We believe theoriginal part of the house dates back to the 17th century with further additions at varying times. Many of the original featuresremain including a wealth of exposed beams and inglenook fireplaces. One enters the property into a generous reception hall which is galleried up to the first floor enhancing the feeling
of space, with a flagstone floor. The ground floor provides excellent versatile reception space, with a formal drawing roomand a further sitting room beyond which is a generous dining
room or study. The well appointed generous kitchen / breakfast room features an Aga and benefits from ample dining space.
The kitchen in turn leads through to a boot room and utility room, as well as leading immediately into both the conservatory and the sitting room. There is also a conservatory and a cloakroom. The accommodation flows seamlessly and is a
wonderful house for entertaining. The first floor offers a master suite comprising bedroom and dressing room, both with an extensive range of built-in wardrobes plus an en suite bathroom. Two further double bedrooms have en suite shower rooms, with two further bedrooms being served by the family bathroom. Within the grounds is a detached Gardener’s Cottage which requires some work but would provide excellent secondary accommodation. Situated behind the cottage is a Japanese garden which needs a good cut-back but could be rather lovely.

Situation

Headley is a small village situated between Newbury and Basingstoke, thus offering excellent communication links to both towns and also to Reading. The M4 and M3 motorways are within easy reach. Headley has a Community Shop with
Post Office. Further comprehensive facilities can be found at Newbury including the Retail Park on the south side. The popular village of Kingsclere is approximately 3.5 miles away which offers comprehensive local amenities including
a leisure centre, gastro-pub, doctors, hairdressers and other local stores. Rail links are found at Newbury, Basingstoke or Thatcham, with Waterloo being only a 45-minute direct train
journey from Basingstoke. In terms of education Newbury enjoys an excellent reputation with a number of local schools being particularly highly regarded in addition to the extensive choice of private schools including Cheam, St. Gabriel’s, Horris Hill, Bradfield College, Downe House, Elstree and Brockhurst & Marlston. The area is particularly appealing for those requiring walking and riding facilities.

Outside

On entering through the electric gates, there is a large gravelled circular driveway with parking for numerous cars to the front. A wide paved area leads to a terrace at the front of the property
leading up to the front door. The grounds overall extend to approximately 6.35 acres, offering seclusion, and being absolutely stunning with unrivalled and far reaching views. Set within the grounds is a tennis court as well as a swimming
pool which is within its own walled garden with paved terrace surrounding. Adjacent to the house at the rear is a raised terrace from which to relax and enjoy the gardens and views. In addition
to the detached double garage there is also a charming timber clad gardener’s cottage (in need of some restoration).
