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, 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.

Fronting on to a favoured tree-lined road on the fringe of this popular rural village located in an area of “Outstanding Natural Beauty”, just some two miles from Pangbourne on Thames with its commuter station for London Paddington, and easily accessible for Reading and the M4, Rhoslyne nestles privately in its mature gardens and grounds approaching approximately 1/5th of an acre, affording spacious and versatile five bedroomed accommodation of approximately 1,966 sq ft, and benefits from in more recent years having been modernised throughout, with only recently a newly fitted kitchen.

A detached bungalow, Rhoslyne was originally built in 1963, being of traditional brick and tiled construction, and was substantially extended in 1972. Whilst generously appointed throughout, the vast footprint of the property and spacious attic space provides clear scope for conversion into additional accommodation if required, subject to the relevant permissions being obtained, as has been done so frequently within the road to date.

A charming modern and contemporary residence, the property benefits from having a wholly relaxing ambience and outlook over its glorious southerly facing gardens.

Careful planning and attention has been provided combining, more modern open plan living with that of a rather more traditional nature, in addition to embracing outside living, and as a consequence the property presents itself as a delightful family home, with early viewing highly recommended to fully appreciate the wonderful opportunity afforded. 

Quietly situated within the mature heart of the village close walking distance to the village primary school, the property sits elevated from the predominantly tree lined road of Bethesda Street, having a wide frontage with a gently inclining brick pavior entrance drive which leads up to the property and the garaging with a turning bay off to one side providing additional parking as well as ease of access in and out. Flanking the drive is a large lawned garden with hedging and interspersed by colourful planting and mature trees. From the drive a further brick pavior pathway extends around the front and side of the building leading to a high wooden pedestrian gate which gives access through to the rear garden. The integral garage, measuring 16’6’’ x 7’ 10’’ has an “up and over” entrance door, fitted light and power, and rear pedestrian door to workshop.  The Workshop measures 8’3” x 7’1”, with pedestrian doors to the rear garden and garage, also with fitted light and power.

The rear garden provides an attractive feature to the property being completely enclosed by high mature hedging and a combination of evergreen shrubs, trees and high fencing around the remaining boundaries providing all year round privacy and shelter. The garden itself is mainly laid to lawn with flanking borders around each side containing many colourful shrubs and plants. Immediately adjoining the patio doors from both the sitting room and open plan kitchen & dining / breakfast room, and the garage / workshop, is a stone flagged terrace with pathways off each side across the rear of the property, bordered by low brick retaining walls and timber railway sleepers as they meet the main lawned garden, providing for a most tranquil setting for ‘Al Fresco’ dining.

In all, the gardens & ground approach approximately 1/5th of an acre.

Services: Mains electricity, water, and drainage are connected to the property. Oil fired central heating and hot water. Oil fired boiler located in Garden Workshop.
