Nearby Pangbourne offers a wide range of local services with more comprehensive shopping in Reading and Newbury.

A reputable country house reconstructed in 1925 for the late Lord Iliffe, the original property being designed by the famous architect Waterhouse. Essentially, the design is of the Elizabethan era, with intricate brickwork, timber framing and tall chimneys, situated on elevated ground with unrivalled southerly views across to the Hampshire Downs. The Court is completely secluded, being approached by a long rhododendron lined drive and set in about 11 acres of mature parkland grounds.
The Court was professionally converted in the late 1970s providing 14 spacious character apartments, all retaining the intrinsic character of the house with access through a magnificent communal entrance hall leading to sweeping staircase with galleried landing. The availability represents a rare opportunity to acquire an elegant spacious apartment within a superior environment.
