Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Oak House sits at the head of Douglas Grange, and presides over its own park like grounds which extend in all to just under 5 acres. It holds such a commanding position for good reason as the developers had reserved this very special plot for their own family home. They constructed a beautiful house with lightly timbered elevations of stock bricks under a clay tiled roof.
Designed with their own exacting requirements in mind, flexibility is the key word here, currently it offers four large bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on the first floor, although the large landing/study area could easily be re-configured to provide a fifth bedroom.
The reception room on the ground floor has a kitchenette under the second staircase which leads to the guest bedroom, with the idea that it could form a suite for a relative or nanny/aupair.
The magnificent living room is triple aspect, enjoying views over the grounds and has a feature brick wall with open fireplace complemented by oak beams giving the room a warm welcoming feel.
The kitchen is fully fitted and has a brick chimney with inset Aga, there is a utility room which has a door leading to the courtyard. Should a more contemporary feel be desired the wall between the kitchen and dining room could be removed to provide a more spacious open plan feel and could even incorporate the conservatory which extends out into the formal gardens.
The triple garage has a room above which has historically been used as an office but could potentially be used for a host of different purposes, annex, games room, studio to name but a few.

The attractive gardens at the front of Oak House are laid to lawn with numerous shaped trees and hedges interspersed which provide a pleasant approach, there is a shingled parking and turning area and a set of wrought iron gates provide vehicular access to the brick paved courtyard in front of the garage block, which opens out into the park like grounds to the rear of the house.
The more formal gardens encompass the house and are peppered with attractive flower and shrub beds and more shaped topiary, there is also an attractive ornamental well. Beyond stretches the park which in all extends the grounds to almost five acres there is a large well stocked pond towards the rear boundary and the periphery is naturally enclosed by mature trees and hedges. Tucked away in one corner there is a large barn currently used as storage.

The picturesque village of Hurst lies about one and a half miles from the centre of Twyford village which offers good shopping facilities and a mainline railway station with services to London, Paddington in under 30 minutes and shortly to become a stop on the super quick Elizabeth Line. Reading is around five miles away with comprehensive shopping facilities and the A329M is just three miles distant connecting with the M4 motorway with access to London Heathrow and the West Country.
Less than five miles away the River Thames offers boating opportunities and fun on the water and the popular riverside town of Henley on Thames is just ten miles away. Sporting facilities in the area include horse racing at Ascot and Windsor, polo at Smiths Lawn and The Royal Berkshire, golf at a variety of local courses, and the renowned Nirvana Spa is close by.
Dinton Pastures Country Park and lakes are just across the road providing boat hire, outdoor cinema, paddling pool and even its own music festival. Picturesque local countryside presents endless scope for walking, with the odd pub thrown in for good measure.
