Quietly tucked away in a fold of the Berkshire Downlands is the small rustic village of West Ilsley, surrounded by scenic rolling hills. A Roman road abounds the Parish on the west and above it is the ancient Ridgeway Path, which traces its timeless way across the Downs to Streatley where it crosses the Thames and onwards into the Chilterns.
The village has an array of rambling farmhouses, old cottages and barns and some fine houses, notably West Ilsley House, formerly the home of the Morland family, which dates from Queen Anne’s. Close to the village is Hodcot House which is now a famous horseracing establishment.
The village, historically linked to farming and agriculture, still continues this rural way of life today remaining largely unspoilt, albeit it has become more residential benefiting from the excellent road communications. There is plenty going on for all age groups. The cricket and tennis clubs both have regular activities throughout the summer months for the younger members of the community. Not to be missed is the annual village fete and lively pre-fete dance. The village website, www.westilsley.org.uk provides further details and is well worth a visit.
There is also a thriving public house overlooking the cricket field and pavilion which has become well known for its food. For rail commuters there are fast regular mainline services up to London (Paddington) from nearby Didcot.
The village also benefits from having excellent education close at hand with the renowned ‘The Downs’ secondary school, St Helen & St Katharine for Girls and Abingdon Boys School. More state and private schools can be found within easy access including the popular East Ilsley primary school.
6 The Maltings occupies a most advantageous position with commanding views across to the scenic Downlands on the opposite side of the village. The house also benefits from a generous mature and landscaped garden plot with extensive lawns extending at the rear and side.
Traditionally built with brick and tile hung elevations under a pitched and gabled tile roof, the house takes great advantage of its delightful setting, with the principle kitchen / dining & family room affording access directly out to the splayed patio terrace, perfect for ‘Al Fresco’ dining.
The accommodation is both spacious and well proportioned, extending to approximately 2,384 sq ft, incorporating family sized 4 bedroomed accommodation with a feature master suite encompassing both a dressing room and shower room, whilst open plan reception rooms are configured in a split-level design.
Displaying a contemporary air that is quite inspired and most attractive, the property also benefits from having been more recently modernised throughout to an exacting standard, which will be entirely evident upon viewing.
Tastefully presented, early viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the wonderful opportunity afforded.
Privately fronting on to The Maltings, set back in mature landscaped gardens and grounds behind a low brick wall with flanking brick pillars, the property is accessed over a spacious splayed drive and forecourt which leads up to the double garage and front entrance, providing parking for several vehicles. The drive and forecourt are bordered on all sides with lawned gardens and an extensive array of shrubs and trees providing great privacy and seclusion, and colourful herbaceous borders interspersed.
A wrought iron pedestrian gate leads through to the side of the property and beyond to the main rear gardens and grounds.
Most attractive, the rear of the property benefits from a large natural stone terrace with a low lying brick retaining wall, which runs across the kitchen / dining & family room, being both deep and ideally placed to enjoy direct access from the house itself, perfect for ‘Al Fresco’ dining. From here delightful views can be found over the private and mature gardens and grounds.
Wide attractive steps make their way up to the main garden which is predominantly laid to lawn with extensive mature hedging flanking the grounds, and a delightful array of trees, shrubs, and flowers providing for a most pleasing vista and great privacy. The rear garden is split into two by mature hedging and planting, and a wrought iron archway.
Delightfully attractive, the gardens and grounds must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
