Tenure: Freehold

A Charming period house with about 2 acres in a fabulous parkland setting designed by Capability Brown

The sale of Mill Bank House offers a rare and
wonderful opportunity to live in a stunning private parkland setting. The house is located in a beautiful peaceful spot in the middle of Benham Park, designed by Capability Brown. Close to the head of the lake, the property is approached down a long drive with fabulous distant views of the surrounding park.

Set in delightful gardens, the property has been decorated in a tasteful and elegant style, with big sash windows throughout letting in an abundance of natural light. The reception rooms include a delightful drawing room with separate study, looking out across the garden and park, a formal dining room, a large kitchen and a snug/family room, all clustered around the charming entrance hall. All on one level, the accommodation is well laid-out allowing the house to flow well.

There are 4 double bedrooms, the master bedroom suite having a large en suite bathroom,
and there is an additional family bathroom and a shower room. All the rooms are well proportioned
with good ceiling heights.

Mill Bank House is ideally placed, located in an extremely private setting yet only a short distance from the market town of Newbury and excellent road and rail links. Newbury itself offers an extensive range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities, and a fast train service into London Paddington. Hungerford is also nearby and has a number of popular cafes, restaurants, public houses and boutique shops.

There is easy access to the A34/M4 linking with the national road network, as well as the train service from Newbury into London. There are a number of highly regarded schools to choose from in the local area, including Cheam, Elstree, Downe House, Marlborough College and Bradfield College.

The gardens surround the house and are
beautifully maintained, with wonderful views over the neighbouring park. Mainly laid to lawn, there are a number of well-stocked borders and a mixture of mature trees, hedges and shrubs, as well as a pretty greenhouse. A paddock adjoins the garden.

The property is approached down a long drive through an imposing, decorative wrought-iron
automatic gate which leads to a large gravelled parking area. There is a double garage and a
workshop, with a staircase leading up to the storage space above. There is also a separate stable.

Planning permission has been granted for the
conversion of the existing garage building into an annexe to the existing house.
