Refurbished and upgraded country house in an elevated and secluded setting with far-reaching views on edge of a prime Chiltern village
Pinnocks is beautifully situated on the west side of an elevated hill close to the ridge in Fawley and within walking distance of the church. With the front of the house and the principal garden on the west side, it enjoys a favourable aspect with impressive sunsets and miles of exceptional riding and walking on the doorstep. Fawley is a very desirable community in which to reside, with village activities being many and varied. Nearby is the regional market town of Henley-on-Thames with prime river frontage and with excellent shopping and local and regional amenities and a train station (via Twyford to London Paddington, trains from 45 minutes). Other regional centres include Reading, High Wycombe and Maidenhead (Crossrail from 2018/19), and Heathrow Airport is within 30 miles.
Pinnocks is a great country home, designed for open plan living. Originally built in 1939 and enlarged in 1998, the property has very recently undergone an extensive and carefully considered restoration. A substantial capital investment programme has seen windows changed throughout almost all the house and substantial refitting, redecorating and some alteration of rooms shapes internally, providing approximately 6,000 sq ft of wonderful family accommodation. Great views are enjoyed from the principal rooms of the house, with almost all the principal rooms facing west.
The front door has a glazed double height surround and leads into the light reception hall providing access to the principal reception rooms and stairs to the first floor accommodation.
The L-shaped drawing room has a feature open fire place with stone surround, double doors leading to the orangery, all with double doors opening onto the surrounding terraces.
The large open plan kitchen/dining room is fitted with an Aga, floor and wall mounted units and a free standing island with feature roof lantern. Bi-fold doors open from the dining area onto the terrace, and there is access to the utility room from the kitchen. The sitting room and study both have double doors to the front terrace.
To the first floor the impressive master bedroom suite has double aspect and a Juliet balcony to enjoy far reaching views over the valley, an en suite with double basins, bath and separate shower, and two walk in dressing rooms. The guest bedroom has an en suite bathroom, and there are four further bedrooms (one en suite) and a family bathroom.
At the rear of the house is a highly practical and attractive rear entrance including utility room and boot room. There is a detached double garage with planning permission for conversion into staff accommodation and a separate triple garage with planning permission for conversion into a tennis pavilion.
Gardens and Grounds
Pinnocks enjoys wonderful elevated balustraded terraces around the house with steps down to a le vel lawned area with swimming pool on one side and further steps down to the informal garden running through herbaceous borders down towards the tennis court. There is mature hedging and screening on the south-western boundary, with access beyond to a public footpath offering miles of riding and walking in the Chilterns. The property benefits from its own drive approach off Church Lane, but has a right of access over a long tarmacadam driveway approaching the property from the south through the woodland adjoining.
Square Footage: 5,532 sq ft
Acreage: 2 Acres
