Nuptown House, Nuptown Lane, Berkshire, RG42
Nuptown House sits in a private lane surrounded by rolling corn fields managed by the Crown Estate. A truly tranquil rural setting yet so close to the many amenities and sporting venues which this area is famed for. The freehold grade 11 listed main house dates from 1420 and with ancillary accommodation extends to in excess of 5720 square feet (and with garaging and outbuildings, to in excess of 7290 square feet). The main house has 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 3 reception rooms and there is an additional 2 bedroom flat, 1 bedroom flat and a studio in the barn.
Nuptown House was built on land which was once held by Edward the Confessors consort, Queen Edith and began life as one large lofty hall with three framed bays. At one end of the hall was a service area and at the other the private rooms. There are now three large chimneys with two dating from the Georgian period around 1720. Many of the sash windows still have original glazing. The dining room, or second sitting room, has a large Inglenook fireplace and the exposed beamed ceilings create a great timeless atmosphere.
The kitchen is a true farm house kitchen built for entertaining with ample room for a table comfortably seating ten in front of a gas fired Aga and a second mini Aga.
In addition, the property offers 4 stables and a tack room, 3 garages, 4 store rooms and a summer house as well as a large inground pool with cover, shielded by high hedges. The property sits within its own 2.7 acres (1.09 Hectares), and within a designated AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).
Heating is provided from a gas fired boiler connected to radiators, and the property has its own Septic tank.
This is England’s best area for Schools and sporting facilities. Local schools include Eton College, Sunningdale prep school, Ludgrove prep school, St Georges, St Marys, Papplewick, Heathfield, The Marist, Lambrook and the American School. There is golf at the famous World championship Wentworth Golf Club and at Royal Berkshire. Tennis is available at the tennis and health club at Wentworth, and a large number of indoor courts are available at The Royal Berkshire David Lloyd gym. Polo is played at Smiths Lawn where a private club offers dining and bar facilities. Both Coworth Park Dorchester Collection, Ascot, and Penny Hill in Bagshot offer Spas.
I love this property because there are no neighbours, which is rare to find this close to London, it is a young children’s resort complex and paradise, and yet is only 49 mins (31.2 miles) by car to Harrods, or thirty minutes (19.8 miles) to Heathrow.
