The village of Upper Basildon sits on the edge of the Berkshire Downlands in an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’ with far reaching scenic countryside surrounding it on all sides.
The village itself offers a range of amenities including a parish church, community Post Office, highly regarded C of E primary school, and the Red Lion public house (recently voted one of the Independent newspaper’s top 50 country pubs). There is a splendid modern village hall, which has become the centre for a variety of community sports and activities with its adjoining sports field and tennis courts. A local bus company runs a limited service from the village to Pangbourne on Thames, Reading, Streatley on Thames and Goring on Thames, where a mainline railway station with fast commuter services up to London (Paddington) in well under the hour (25 minutes from Reading) can be found, in addition to the pending Cross Rail from Reading leading up to The City.
Bradfield College, the well-known Public School located some three miles from Upper Basildon, has excellent leisure, fitness and sports facilities including a large indoor swimming pool all of which are available for use by members of the public. The facilities also include squash, badminton courts, tennis courts, hockey and a 9-hole golf course.
In addition to local state primary and secondary schooling, the area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of private schooling, of particular note; Cranford House School, The Oratory Preparatory School, Moulsford Preparatory School, St Andrews Preparatory School, The Oratory School, Pangbourne College, Brockhurst & Marlston House, Downe House, Rupert House School, Shiplake College, The Abbey School, Bradfield College, The Manor Preparatory School, Abingdon School, Abingdon Preparatory School, Radley College, and St Helen & St Katharine.
N.B. Crossrail services are scheduled to be commencing from Reading which together with the electrifying of the line will significantly improve travelling times to Paddington and central City of London destinations.
Ridgeway is believed to date from the late 1940’s, being a very appealing traditional property with whitened rendered elevations under a pitched clay tile triple hipped roof, with later additions successfully blended in architecturally, creating a most charming characterful yet contemporary home, which sits peacefully in its exceptionally private and mature gardens and grounds.
The property has more recently undergone tasteful refurbishment, affording open plan yet traditionally orientated accommodation, which is both light and airy, and details a high-quality note throughout, with many character features meeting contemporary features stylishly through the 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 4 reception rooms.
Whilst a most spacious home, further scope is afforded to create additional space and added architectural merit, should one desire in the future.
To the rear of the property, quietly nestling within its own colourful gardens, there is a detached office complex, which is most spacious and benefits from its own timber decked terrace, perfect for working from home.
To the front of the property there is a detached workshop studio with mezzanine storage, which would serve well either as a second home office or workshop, with opening to the front and side, overlooking the mature and private front gardens and established pond.
The detached double garage sits to one side of the main house, and is spacious and fitted with mains electricity, benefitting from a rear pedestrian door also.
The gardens and grounds wrap their way around the property, leading to the main lawned garden at the rear which runs off the rear stone laid terrace, offering total seclusion, with each step taken rewarding the viewer with a different experience and alternative areas in which to enjoy a simply wonderful rural lifestyle.
Both private and delightfully attractive, the gardens and grounds are the subject of much care and attention, and truly offer a wonderful lifestyle, which will be evident upon viewing, and in all extend to approximately 0.34 of an acre.
Services: Mains water, drainage and electricity are connected. Central heating and domestic hot water from oil fired boiler.
