Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

A ground floor country house apartment with its own entrance and its own private garden. The property also has access to communal grounds and a communal library and sitting room.

Location

The property is located within Swallowfield Park, a 17th Century, Grade II* listed classical mansion dating back to 1678. It was designed by architect William Talman, also known for his design of Chatsworth House and a student of Sir Christopher Wren. Among the previous owners was Thomas ‘Diamond’ Pitt, great grandfather of former Prime Minister, William Pitt. It was purchased in 1820 by Sir Henry Russell in
whose family it remained until 1965. In more recent times this wonderful building has been tastefully converted into individual apartments, yet still retains its period charm and original features.

The property is conveniently located within easy reach of the A33 which links with Reading and the M4, Heathrow airport and London and with Basingstoke, the M3 and Gatwick and Southampton airports., yet is within an idyllic rural setting on the outskirts of this pretty village.

Swallowfield provides a village shop and post office, a doctor’s practice, village hall and 13th century All Saints church.

For local leisure there is golf at Bearwood Lakes, Crowthorne E.Berks, Calcot Park and Caversham, tennis at Wokingham, Caversham, Crowthorne and Old Basing, gyms at Nirvana Club, Sindlesham and Wellington College, Crowthorne and horse racing at Newbury, Windsor and Ascot.

Farley Equestrian Centre and Wellington Riding School and Country Park are also close by.
