The village of Upper Basildon sits on the edge of the Berkshire Downlands in an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’ with far reaching scenic countryside surrounding it on all sides.

The village itself offers a range of amenities including a parish church, community Post Office, highly regarded C of E primary school, and a traditional Public House serving local ale and food. A splendid new village hall which has become the centre for a variety of community sports and activities utilising its adjoining sports field and tennis courts exists also. A local bus company runs a limited service from the village to Pangbourne on Thames, Reading, Streatley on Thames and Goring on Thames, where a mainline railway station with fast commuter services up to London (Paddington) in well under the hour (25 minutes from Reading) can be found.

Bradfield College, the well known Public School located some three miles from Upper Basildon, has excellent leisure, fitness and sports facilities including a large indoor swimming pool all of which are available for use by members of the public.  The facilities also include squash, badminton and tennis courts, hockey and a 9-hole golf course.

In addition to having its own well revered primary school, locally the area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of both state and private schooling, of particular note; Bradfield College, Pangbourne College, Downe House, Cranford House, Moulsford Preparatory, Abingdon Boys and The School of St Helen & Katharine.

Tucked away in spacious and mature gardens and grounds within the quiet and mature heart of this beautiful Downland village, the property, modern and contemporary in nature, affords a traditional appearance, with red brick elevations and tiled bay windows and covered porch to the front, providing a convenient approach and space for a log store. 

Generously apportioned, amounting to approximately 2,131 sq ft, Oakwoods is a modern family home having flexible open plan, yet traditional living space, benefitting from 4 principal reception rooms, with a lovely fireplace to the sitting room, utility space, and a spacious galleried entrance hall to the ground floor, and with 5 bedrooms, including 3 suites, and a family bathroom, to the first floor. The delightful South facing grounds to the rear afford super space and provide for further expansion of the property should one wish to do so. 

The detached garage located towards the lower gardens, offers super parking, or possible conversion to form a home studio for use with the main property.

Careful planning and attention has been provided, combining more modern open plan living with that of a rather more traditional nature, the results of which provide for a delightful country house with fantastic proportions for modern living.

Quietly situated within the mature heart of the village close to the primary school, the property can be approached either from the front via a pedestrian gate which leads up a gravelled path through the lawned gardens to the covered front porch, or to the rear of the property off Beckfords via the private driveway and forecourt which leads up to the detached double garage.

The gardens and grounds of approx. 0.26 acre wrap themselves around the property, providing a pleasant and privately mature aspect upon which to look over from inside and outside. Facing due South to the rear, the back garden is mainly laid to lawn and enjoys privacy and seclusion with mature hedges on the boundaries, whilst a paved terrace runs across the back of the property, leading off the principal reception rooms and taking advantage of the southerly aspect, perfect for ‘Al Fresco’ dining.

On the opposing side of the driveway and double garage, the lower garden affords great space for the timber shed that resides there, as well as the chicken run. Conveniently situated, the lower garden could well also provide space for growing vegetables, or for families a useful area for trampolines and climbing frames.

Both private and delightfully attractive, the gardens are the subject of much care and attention, which will be evident upon viewing.

Services: Mains electricity, water, and drainage are connected to the property. Oil fired central heating and hot water.
