Lothlorien is a substantial and uniquely designed 5-bedroom detached family home, nestled in an elevated position with stunning views, gardens, and woodland that extends to approximately 2.73 acres.  Located in the highly sought-after Slanting Hill, close to the villages of Hermitage, Cold Ash, and Bucklebury, and offers an amazingly designed family home that is set over 3 levels with clever half-landings on each level to provide very spacious and well-planned, as well as flexible accommodation throughout.  Slanting Hill is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 

The current owners have beautifully refurbished and improved this property in their time, and we feel this property would ideally suit a growing family or a multi-generational family as the spacious and flexible accommodation would accommodate both with ease. 

The property is approached from a large sweeping gravel driveway via a 5 bar gate and has plenty of parking for multiple cars and leads to the garaging block for 2-car garaging and an integral workshop. Above the workshop is a large room, currently used as a store room which could be used as a gym or home office. This room already has a broadband internet connection.

The main entrance hall instantly gives you your first wow factor with the stunning solid Oak staircases that take you both to the upper floors and down to the lower floors with dual-height views of the gardens and woodland.  The main ground floor enjoys the hub of the house with a luxury refitted kitchen breakfast room which has 2 built-in Neff ovens as featured on Bake Off, 2 built-in Neff dishwashers, and an integrated fridge freezer. There is a separate pantry which also has a built-in oven. A study and cloakroom complete this level. 

Taking the half landing down to the large dining room and living room which both have doors out onto the newly rebuilt balcony with the most impressive far-reaching views over the gardens and woodland.   

The main lower floors enjoy a versatile use of the rooms with a great sized playroom or cinema room, hobby or storeroom, and large laundry/boot room with steps down to the lowest level which offers bedroom 5 or guest bedroom, complete with refitted en-suite shower room and additional living or family room.  This floor could also be used as an Annexe if required. This lower level leads straight out onto the large patio area. 

The first floors are used for the remaining 4 bedrooms with the impressive 2 level master bedroom suite.  The dressing room and luxury refitted 4-piece bathroom suite is on the landing level with steps up into the fantastically sized master bedroom.  Bedroom 2 is also on the landing level also with its own refitted en-suite shower room. On the higher level of the half, landing are bedrooms 3 and 4 as well as the refitted 4-piece family bathroom. A new condensing oil-fired boiler was fitted in December 2023. This improves the EPC rating from 61D to 66D.

To the outside, the gardens and grounds are accessed via a large patio area and sweeping gravel steps leading down and through the landscaped lawns and mature flower trees and hedges.  Towards the bottom of the gardens is a lovely timber-decked area and pond.  The remainder of the grounds is wonderful woodlands that are easily accessed and usable.  This woodland is a children's dream with large flat areas for those all-important 'dens' children love to make, and all in a safe and enclosed location where children can be kept an eye on. 

A truly unique family home that does require an internal viewing to fully appropriate the spacious and sizeable accommodation and of course, the gardens and grounds do require a good look to fully take in the seclusion and views this property offers. The property is connected to wifi via #Gigaclear cabling that has been installed in the village.

The main town of Newbury is only 4 miles away and Junction 13 of the M4 and A34 are only 2 miles away, with Reading only 18 miles away.   The village of Hermitage offers good local village amenities including a church, a nice local public house, CO-OP, a post office, and good local schools.  Slanting Hill is within the catchment for the popular Downs secondary school and the area has a wide selection of schools both Primary, Secondary, Private, and State.
