The Property
Lake House is a 19th century Grade II Listed house arranged over 3 floors, situated in the middle of the popular village of Kingsclere. The accommodation is gracious with high ceilings, and in particular an impressive entrance hall and staircase and a generous drawing room. The house faces east and west and would now benefit from some updating. There is potential to extend the ground floor subject to the usual planning consents, and to convert some of the bedrooms to bathrooms if required. The views over the beautifully landscaped gardens to the lake are exceptional, with the centre of the village just a short walk away.

The Garden
Lake House is accessed from the lane via a shared gravelled drive with a woodland area to one side, to parking in front of the house and garaging. The garden and grounds are a particular feature of the property and create a wonderful setting for the house. There is a formal area with a terrace
and lawns with well stocked herbaceous borders, shrubs and trees, which extends down to the lake/millpond. An area of woodland with a walk extends round the lake to another small area of mown grass and a further area of woodland bordered by the Kingsclere stream which forms the eastern boundary of the property. A small gate gives access to the footpath which leads to the centre of the village.

The Location
Lake House is situated within a few minutes’ walk of the centre of the village which offers good daily shopping facilities with shops, hairdresser, doctor’s surgery, pub/restaurants, church and primary school. Kingsclere is well situated midway between Newbury, Reading and Basingstoke with a wide selection of private and state schools in the area. A few minutes’ drive to the south of Kingsclere will take you up onto the Downs to the Wayfarers Walk with spectacular views from White Hill and Watership Down.
