Wonderful Grade II* listed village house with lovely garden

Location

Kellinghams is situated at the southern end of The Street within the village Conservation Area and a short walk from The Bell free house and village church. The pub is owned by a village charity, and there is a popular primary school. Waltham St Lawrence is one of Berkshire's prettiest villages, and excellent shopping, recreational and educational facilities can be found in Reading, Henley and Maidenhead (Crossrail from Maidenhead and Twyford in 2018/19). There is an excellent range of state and private schooling in the area.

Description

Kellinghams is an historic Grade II* Listed village house of immense character. All the requisite period features you would expect in such a dwelling are apparent: beautiful fireplaces, fine herringbone woodblock floors, exposed beams to walls and ceilings, handsome windows and some fine joinery. The house has a charming feel and has been cherished, although may benefit from some modernisation and upgrading. There is great potential (subject to conversion and planning permission) to convert the integral garage to make an additional informal living space or large kitchen/breakfast room if required. The kitchen has a range of wall and floor units, stainless steel sink unit, Gaggenhau oven and warming drawer, Siemens oven, 5-ring hob and extractor, larder and integral Siemens fridge. The rear hall has a quarry tiled floor. There is well balanced first floor accommodation in this genuine family house.

Outside there is a heated swimming pool with changing area, a delightful garden, pond, and in the north-east corner a range of sheds and outbuildings for tools and storage.

The property is approached across a sweeping gravel drive with a wide parking and turning circle, with a pretty formal garden to the front of the house laid principally to lawn and shielded behind mature hedging from The Street. In the informal orchard area to the eastern boundary is a fruit cage and kitchen garden, with trees including oak, weeping willow, yew, amongst others. The boundaries are well screened and there are a number of other handsome herbaceous borders, with the elevations of the main house being wisteria clad.
