Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Gallery is a fantastically versatile thatched barn conversion set in grounds of approximately 1.36 acres. The approach to the property is across a gravel drive that leads to an area of parking at the front of the property. Entering via the enclosed entrance lobby, a door opens into the open plan Dining area and Drawing Room. With exposed ceilings, beams, and wooden floors, this is a fantastic entertaining area where the charms of this conversion are best enjoyed. A gallery above the dining area provides an excellent area that could be used as an office and a door from here leads to a large storage area. The kitchen is located centrally in the property with direct access to the garden as well as the remainder of the house. Just off the kitchen is a music room, wine store, WC and utility and stairs lead up to an ensuite bedroom. This whole area, if required could be used as a separate annex if required. There are four further bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite shower room and a family bathroom serves the remaining bedrooms. The Master suite is located at the rear of the property and has a dressing room area and ensuite shower room. The bedroom features exposed beams and has French doors that lead directly onto the kitchen garden.


The Gallery is located in the hamlet of Sonning Eye near to the Caverham Lake which has the Sailing and Water Sports Club. The gastronomically acclaimed French Horn Riverside Hotel and Restaurant is nearby as too is the Mill Theatre which offers a wide range of theatrical and musical productions. There are excellent state and private schools close at hand including Bluecoat School, for Boys, Shiplake College and Queen Annes for Girls. Excellent road and rail links are also close at hand including Twyford and Reading where Cross Rail will be available in the near future.


The gardens of the Gallery are a delight and extend to approximately 1.36 acres. Of particular note is the large pond that has a large Willow tree on its banks and this main area of the garden extends to open garden that is bounded by mature trees. A more private gated garden is located directly off the kitchen and can be accessed from the kitchen, dining room and master bedroom. At the front of the house is ample parking for several cars as well as a garage.
