With origins in the 16th Century, Shepherds Fennel has been sympathetically extended over the years to create a comfortable family home, retaining many original features combined with modern convenience. Entrance is into the dining room which has an original brick floor, exposed beams and a wonderful inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove. One side of the house leads off to the snug and continues through to the dual aspect sitting room with Jetmaster open fireplace. On the other side of the dining room a corridor leads down to the lovely kitchen breakfast room and conservatory, which has doors opening out onto the garden. The kitchen is well appointed with cream painted cabinetry, smart black granite work tops and an Aga.
From the dining room, stairs rise to the first floor landing. The principal bedroom is at one end of the house with a vaulted ceiling. The large guest bedroom is at the other end of the house, and there are two further bedrooms and two family bathrooms also on this floor.
Shepherds Fennel sits on the edge of this quiet rural village in the Berkshire Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village boasts an excellent farm shop and the surrounding countryside is renowned for its beautiful walks and rides.
The Thameside villages of Pangbourne and Goring-on-Thames are just a few miles away and provide a wide range of local shops and services including mainline rail links to London Paddington within the hour.
The more comprehensive amenities of Reading and Newbury offer a variety of restaurants, shops and entertainment.
The M4 (J12) provides excellent vehicular access to the motorway network, London and its airports.
The property is approached off a quiet lane onto a gravelled driveway which leads up to the garage where there is parking for several cars. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with mature hedging on the boundaries providing privacy and seclusion. The garden is interspersed with pretty borders and planting and there is a large area of decking to the side of the garage, ideal for entertaining. A large room above the double garage provides ample additional storage.
