Full description

Barndown House is a valuably un-listed spacious 6 bedroom family house with good accommodation in need of modernisation. The rooms are well proportioned with good ceiling heights and there are numerous large windows creating light rooms with good views across the lawns and outlying gardens.

The house has not been renovated in recent years and there is huge scope for further investment and enhancement of this attractive period house. The property is currently laid out in what is understood to be its original form with the expected drawing room, dining room and secondary sitting room layout on the ground floor.

On the first floor there are 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with a further bedroom and adjacent bathroom on the top floor.

There is a separate two-storey semi-derelict cottage in the grounds, ideal for renovation as staff accommodation or a granny annexe. The
rear driveway at Barndown House could easily be used to provide a separate access to the cottage, set apart from the main driveway.

Barndown House is situated in Shefford Woodlands, a small village to the north of Hungerford on the edge of the Berkshire Downs.
Lying within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the area is well known for its stunning countryside and there is extensive high quality walking and riding in the immediate area.

Shefford Woodlands is within easy reach of the market towns of Hungerford, Marlborough,
Wantage and Newbury which offer a wide range
of shopping, leisure and cultural amenities. The popular Pheasant Inn public house/gastropub
is very nearby (0.25 miles), and Newbury
racecourse, several golf courses and the renowned Watermill Theatre are all within easy reach.

Communications in the area are excellent with the M4 (J14) less than a mile away, and there are fast train services from both Hungerford and Newbury into London Paddington.

There is an extensive range of schools nearby,
including Wickham and Welford, Baydon, Chilton Foliat and Ramsbury primary schools, as well as Cheam, Elstree, Marlborough College, Bradfield College and Downe House.

The property is approached down a gravel drive
leading to a turning area with parking for a number of vehicles.

The gardens surround the house and have a very private feel, being mainly laid to lawn and
surrounded by mature trees and hedging. The
main garden area behind the house is south-facing
and formal in style, with steps leading down from the terrace to a lawn area, edged with imaginatively planted, well-stocked borders providing year-round interest.

To the east side of the house is a dis-used tennis
court, as well as a double garage currently used to store garden machinery.
