4 bedroom semi-detached house for saleChurch End, Sherfield-on-Loddon, Hook, Hampshire
Garden Court, as its name suggests, overlooks its around a half acre fully walled garden giving privacy and seclusion, inherited from when the whole property was part of Sherfield Court, a very fine 18th century house. In the 1980s the eastern wing was converted into an elegant ‘Queen Anne’ style house incorporating low threshold sash windows, dado rails and cornice in the reception rooms. The accommodation was carefully designed to look over the walled garden together with the more recently constructed conservatory.
On entering the house the hall is generous with a turning staircase to the first floor. A panelled door opens to the sitting room, with an open brick fireplace within a decorative carved wooden mantelpiece and beyond, through an archway, a library area.
There are French windows to the garden and doors also to the over 13ft conservatory. Beyond the main hall, the inner hall opens to the generous hand-painted Smallbone style kitchen/breakfast room incorporating a green gas-fired Rayburn and Neff electric double oven and hob. A glass panelled door opens to the garden. Accessed also from this hall is the dining room, with its two low windows looking out to the garden and the study and beyond a utility room with the back door.
On reaching the first floor the four bedrooms are accessed from the good-sized landing (with a drop-down hatch to the boarded loft area). The master bedroom, with its windows on two sides, is a light and spacious room with access to a balcony and an ensuite bathroom. All the bedrooms are double rooms with one bedroom an ensuite offering a small bath and the others served by the family shower room.
Garden Court is situated about a mile south of the village of Sherfield on Loddon, a popular village mostly centred around the large village green. There is a wide range of local amenities including the Church, two public houses, post office, village shop, village hall, Sherfield School and Sherfield Oaks Golf Course.
More comprehensive shopping, educational and recreational facilities can be found in the regional centres of Basingstoke and Reading. Sherfield on Loddon is strategically well placed for local and regional communication being situated adjacent to the A33 and within about 4 miles of the M3 at (J6) and about 9.5 miles of the M4 (J11). The local main line station to London Waterloo and Paddington is in the nearby village of Bramley. A fast railway service runs to London (Reading to Paddington, Basingstoke to Waterloo).
From the drive, the house is approached through a brick arch flanked by the barn and workshop with the spire of St. Leonard's Church as a back-drop. The garden is entirely enclosed by a high brick wall with a central lawn broken by the swimming pool and bounded by a low wall and herbaceous and shrub borders. To one side is a greenhouse and a timber garden shed.
A small arched entrance to the side gives access to the back door. The magnificent barn, divided and shared with the main house, is impressively timbered and through a back door, provides access to the pool pump room. The barn is accessed through an electrically operated rolling door.
Beyond the barn and on the other side of the drive is a two acre partly fenced paddock and kitchen garden which is available by separate negotiation.
