Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Firs is a superb period family house which
has been renovated by the current owners,
who have carefully retained many of the period
features. The original house dates from the
1600’s and is believed to have been the village
bakery. As would be expected of a property
of this period, there are beautifully beamed
ceilings and inglenook fireplaces. The property
was extended approximately 20 years ago, to
include the fantastic sitting room complete with
vaulted ceiling and glazed roof panel which
floods the room with natural light. Indeed, it is
the contrast between old and new which is most
striking about The Firs, particularly the excellent
condition of the property throughout. The well appointed kitchen has an Aga, an electric oven
and hob with integrated appliances and family
dining area.
On the first floor there is an impressive master
bedroom suite encompassing a dressing room
and ensuite bathroom. There are two further
double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Additionally, there is a double bedroom with
ensuite bathroom and small sitting area. The
fifth bedroom, currently used as a gym, is set
above the large double garage and accessed via
a separate staircase.

The Firs is located in the popular village of
Upper Basildon within close proximity to the
riverside village of Pangbourne.
Upper Basildon itself has an active community
and benefits from the popular Red Lion pub,
local church and post office. The area is also
well served by an excellent range of schools,
both state and private. Of particular note are
Bradfield College, St Andrews Preparatory
School, Pangbourne College, Downe House and
The Oratory Preparatory School.
At Bradfield College there are excellent sporting
facilities available via membership, including
golf course, indoor sports complex and tennis
centre. The area is well served with recreational
pursuits and the surrounding countryside is
renowned for its walks and rides.

The property has off street parking and a
double garage at the front of the house. The
professionally landscaped gardens to the rear
are exceptional and can be accessed via the
kitchen and sitting room, making the beautiful
garden a real extension of the main house in
summer months. Surrounded by herbaceous
borders and trees there is a real sense of
privacy and the different terrace areas have
been carefully designed and located to make
the most of the sun throughout the day. There
is a productive fruit and vegetable garden with
raised beds and a recently installed timber office
building complete with electricity and Gigaclear
broadband.
