Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Glaston Hill House is a magnificent Grade II listed country house providing around 6,000 sq ft. of living accommodation arranged over two floors. The property is set within attractive mature grounds of approximately 17.12 acres. With origins in the early 18th century, this significant property benefited from a substantial west wing being added in the late 19th century. The property is approached via a long lime tree avenue flanked by paddocks and a pedestrian avenue on the other side, through which it is thought locally that Chaucer once traversed whilst composing Canterbury Tales. The brick facade has a parapet with a tile coping and a moulded brick cornice and also has a variation of beautiful decorative brickwork to the front elevation. The current owners of Glaston Hill House have lived here for around
24 years, and have extensively renovated and refurbished the property to create a fine family house in this convenient location.

Set in grounds of around 17 acres, there is light woodland, landscaped gardens, paddocks and excellent equestrian facilities including a superb stable yard and an adjacent sand school. In addition, there is a Right of Way over adjoining land providing a pedestrian and horse access to St.Mary's Church (crossing a public highway) and thence on to Bramshill Forest with its many hacking out opportunities. This agreement is subject to holding a permit.

Within the grounds are some ponds, a lovely walled garden and a swimming pool. There are also two long driveway entrances, one being shared with one other property and the second which leads to the stables and equestrian yard.

Internally, the property has elegant and well-appointed reception rooms over the ground floor with a wealth of original features throughout. Of particular note, is the entrance/ dining hall and vaulted family breakfast room. Over the first floor is a large principal bedroom with adjoining dressing room and bathroom. There are also four further double bedrooms, two bathrooms and an attic room, which was used as a bathroom.


The property is located approximately 6 miles to the south west of the charming market town of Wokingham which is perfect for everyday needs. Further afield, at the larger centres of Ascot, Bracknell and Reading, more comprehensive facilities can be found.

Schooling in the area is well-renowned and includes Wellington College which is approximately 3 miles away, Holme Grange, Bearwood College, Eton, Eagle House, Ludgrove, Luckley House School and St Neots. All of the above are within an easy driving distance.

The property is also well placed for the commuter, with both the M3 and M4 motorways within driving distance, both providing easy access to the Thames Valley corridor and motorway networks. Rail links can be found at Reading, Wokingham, Basingstoke, Hook and Fleet and all provide a fast and regular service to London Paddington and London Waterloo respectively. Heathrow Airport is approximately 32 miles and Farnborough Airport is about 13 miles. Private aircraft facilities are also available at Blackbushe Airport (approximately 6 miles).

The area is also well serviced with bridleways and footpaths.
