Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Kingsbridge House was built by the current owners approximately 10 years ago and provides outstanding accommodation which is comfortable, spacious, and ideal for those who enjoy entertaining. In addition, to the main house there is a delightful one-bedroom cottage as well as a log cabin, both of which would be ideal to accommodate independent teenagers, older members of the family, or staff. The house is entered by the large reception hall which gives access to all rooms to the ground floor. Decorated in light neutral tones, the property is full of light and space which is further accentuated on the ground floor by four sets of French doors which let light flood in - and through which wonderful views of the garden can be seen. The kitchen/breakfast room is an impressive 23 foot in length and has a large number of bespoke fitted cream coloured traditional style units and cupboards with a central island, which houses further cupboards, shelving and an integrated wine fridge. Other fitted kitchen appliances include three large Neff ovens and Neff coffee machine. The kitchen leads directly to the open plan breakfast room with its French doors and two picture windows making it a delightful area for more informal dining overlooking the garden. The impressive dining room and drawing room, which are adjacent to each other, are both of excellent proportions.
Of particular note are the two sets of French doors, in addition to the floor-to-ceiling windows in the drawing room which again, give lovely views of the garden and direct access to it. There is
also an elegant stone fireplace with open fire.

The other accommodation on the ground floor is made up of a cosy family room, a cloak room and utility room The first floor is accessed by a solid oak staircase with a vaulted ceiling. All five of the property’s bedrooms are spacious doubles but the master bedroom suite is particularly impressive with its walk in wardrobe with bespoke fitted shelves and cupboards, and the stylish en suite bathroom with its stunning twin sink unit, walk in shower and bath. Bedrooms three and four both have access to a shared shower room, whilst the guest suite benefits from bespoke fitted wardrobes and en suite bathroom. In addition, bedroom 5 is a good size and due to its proximity to the master bedroom might make an ideal bedroom for a young child. The first floor accommodation is
completed by a bathroom with separate shower.

well placed to join the motorway network at J11 of the M4 and J6 of the M3, with easy access to London and its airports.

Kingsbridge House is an imposing and handsome, red brick house of traditional style. The property is approached via a generous sweeping gravel drive which provides generous parking for several cars and which has an elegant feature fountain in the middle of a turning circle, directly in front of the house. The gardens and grounds lie largely to the sides and rear of the house and are south facing with a large terraced area wrapping around the house. Having been professionally landscaped, the gardens feature numerous mature trees, shrubs and extensive lawns; which then lead onto open grassland and give the appearance of delightful park-like grounds. At the far end of the property lies the River Loddon with a pretty footbridge over leading to neighbouring land. Kingsbridge House has a number of enviable
leisure facilities including a heated swimming pool overlooked by a pretty Breeze House which provides a sheltered spot for enjoying snacks and drinks by the pool, a tennis court, a games room which currently houses a snooker table, and field shelter. In all the property extends to 8.41 acres and would be a good prospect for those purchasers with horses, as the land could easily be fenced off into a number of paddocks.
