The Garden House is a fine Grade II listed Queen Anne village house, in a prominent position, in the popular village of Standford Dingley. The house is bathed in natural light via elegant sash windows in the principal reception rooms offer a charming traditional environment for entertaining and daily living. To the front of the house, on a south easterly aspect, are the two principal reception rooms currently used as a drawing room and a more everyday sitting room. At the rear of the house is a large kitchen dining room with views over the rear gardens and the Pang River beyond.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms and three bathrooms. The Garden house has been a much loved home for many years and requires a degree of updating.

Stanford Dingley is one of the most desirable villages in West Berkshire with a Saxon church and two public houses, The Old Boot which dates back to the 18th Century and The Bull dating back to 15th Century. The charming village sits in an idyllic, tranquil location amidst farmland and woodland, within the valley of the River Pang. The local villages of Bucklebury and Bradfield offer excellent local amenities including churches, public
houses and village shops. Nearby Bradfield College also has excellent sporting facilities available via membership, including a golf course, indoors sports complex, pool and tennis centre. Reading and Newbury are 10 and 9 miles away respectively, and provide more comprehensive facilities and shopping centres. The area benefits from excellent commuter and travel facilities with easy access onto the M4 at junctions 12 and 13 to London and the West Country, and an excellent train service from Reading to London Paddington within the hour. There is also the added draw of Crossrail in 2019.

The Garden House sits on a minor village road in the heart of Stanford Dingley. To the rear of the house is an intimate and private river garden with stone terrace easily accessed from french doors leading from the kitchen. There is a lawn running down to the river flanked by mature mixed borders. In addition, there is the formal garden the other side of the village lane which the house directly overlooks. This is a generous piece of ground, formally tended with specimen trees, attractive herbaceous borders and a large flat lawn
beyond. Historically, it was believed to house a grass tennis lawn.
