Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated in glorious grounds of nearly seven acres is this handsome 1930s family home. The property is beautifully presented throughout and has been meticulously maintained.

Location

The property is situated set back from the road in a secluded setting on Fleet Hill, in its own grounds of gardens, paddock and woodland. The location is considered one of the prime roads in the area, as a result, of the sizeable and attractive homes that are each set on large private plots. Despite the distinctly rural feel of the property it is conveniently located for the train stations in Crowthorne, Wokingham and Farnborough and less than three miles from the world-renowned Wellington College.

The village of Finchampstead is highly coveted, being popular for families with a well regarded primary school, playing field and outstanding countryside on the doorstep.

The property is conveniently located for the commuter with the M3 and M4 motorways easily accessible. Schooling is well served both by state and public schools, most notable amongst them Wellington College, Eagle House and Yateley Manor. Numerous golf clubs are close by and further leisure facilities can be found at Wellington College.

Finchampstead Village - 0.5 miles Eversley (Cricket Green) - 1.7 miles; Crowthorne Station - 2.5 miles; Wellington College - 2.8 miles; Wokingham 5.0 miles. London Paddington - about 1hr from Crowthorne; London Waterloo - about 38min from Farnborough.

Description

The property is approached from the roadside via a gravel driveway flanked by lovely mature borders and a spring-fed pond, in turn leading to a large turning area and a integral triple garage. There is wiring in place for electric gates to the roadside.

The galleried reception hallway is central to the house providing access to the principle rooms. There is an Oak-panelled formal drawing room with fireplace leading to a less formal family room, with doors out to the side and rear onto the expansive patios. A substantial oak panelled dining room is situated to the rear of the house, also with doors to the patios making the reception space ideal for entertaining. The kitchen has a superb range of hand built Small bone furniture, and fitted appliances and space for a breakfast table with doors to the garden. In addition there is a good size utility room, two guest cloakrooms and access to the integral triple garage. The house was also fitted with a new alarm system in 2013.

To the first floor there is a galleried landing area providing access to the bedrooms and family bathroom, and a large linen cupboard. The master bedroom is spacious with lovely double-aspect views over the grounds to the side and rear. There is a large beautifully appointed en suite bathroom with separate bath and double shower unit. There are four further double bedrooms and two further bathrooms, one being en suite to the guest bedroom.

The grounds are a particular feature of the property, being almost seven acres in total. The grounds to the house are formal with mature hedgerow to the perimeter, a substantial patio adjoining the house and immaculate lawns leading away from the house down to the paddocks and woodland. The paddock contains a stable building (derelict) and gated access to Fleet Hill - providing possible equestrian use. Beyond the formal gardens the grounds lead into well managed bluebell woodland, maintained by the current owners to provide a wildlife haven. Paths through the woodland open to wildflower meadow. There is a garden shed and a large timber workshop/shed.

Square Footage: 4,361 sq ft
