Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Originally two cottages built in 1840 as part of the Englefield Estate, Hill Cottage has been sympathetically extended in previous years into a wonderfully spacious family home. The principal reception rooms all lead off the central entrance hall with the sitting room, dining room and family room all having French doors leading out onto the wide terrace which runs the length of the back of the house. An abundance of windows gives the house a light and bright feel and offer lovely views over the garden. At the other end of the house is the large kitchen/breakfast room which flows through to the conservatory, which also has three sets of doors to the terrace and outside. The kitchen has an Aga, a double Butler's sink, wooden cabinetry and a mixture of wooden and tiled work surfaces. From the entrance hall the main stairs lead up to the wide landing where the principal bedroom and dressing room can be found at one end. The dressing room also has plumbing for an en suite if desired. There are also four further double bedrooms, two with en suite shower room, and a family bathroom on this floor. A secondary staircase descends at the other end of the landing into the kitchen.

Ufton Nervet is a charming village lying close to the Kennet and Avon canal, and which has its own primary school and church. The nearby village of Mortimer provides an excellent range of local facilities including a train station, with the larger centres of Reading and Basingstoke easily accessible and providing a more comprehensive range of amenities. Located between the country estates of Englefield and Stratfield Saye, the area offers excellent walking and riding country and the range of schooling available, both state and private, is second to none.

The property is approached through a five bar wooden gate onto a gravel driveway, flanked by mature hedges and shrubs. Ahead is a double garage and there is ample space to park several vehicles to the side of the house. A pedestrian gate from Church Lane leads up to the front entrance porch and a gravel pathway runs round both sides of the house to the lovely south facing gardens. These are predominantly laid to lawn with mature trees and hedging on the boundaries offering a high degree of privacy. There is also a wide terrace running the length of the back of the house and several beds with pretty herbaceous planting. To the east side of the house is another secluded part of the garden, with surrounding high hedges and pretty planting, together with another terraced area.
