Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Highfield House is set on the outskirts of the sought after village of Binfield Heath. Originally constructed in 1837 as a pair of workers’ cottages and subsequently serving many years as the Coach and Horses public house, the property was completely refurbished in 2010. Arriving at the house, solid, remote controlled, electric gates open on to a large gravelled parking area. Whilst there is a formal entrance at the front of the property, day-to-day entry is via the rear into the utility area of the recently upgraded kitchen. This is a fabulous kitchen that is flooded with South Westerly light from skylight windows set into the vaulted ceiling and through bi-folding doors opening onto a terrace and garden beyond. A Corian topped breakfast bar separates the dining and kitchen areas where a range of walnut, fitted storage units and integrated appliances, including a Range Cooker, sit both below and above the counter top. Moving towards the front of the property there a dining hall located in the middle of the house, adjacent to the sitting room which has an open fire and direct access to the West facing garden room. Heading back into the dining hall, there is an access to the dry cellar, a study and double doors opening to an area of the house which could have a number of uses. Currently it is set up as an additional reception/family room and there is a wet room and another study. If required, this part of the house could easily become annexed accommodation with the study becoming a fifth bedroom and there is an area where a kitchen could be fitted. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, including the master suite with built-in wardrobes and a shower room with twin wash hand basins. The guest room has an ensuite shower room and the two remaining bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom which has a separate bath and shower together with twin wash hand basins. The fourth bedroom has an open staircase that leads into a loft room and is currently used as a further study.

Situation

Binfield Heath has a thriving community, with its own church, village shop with Post Office and public house, the recently refurbished Bottle and Glass. The bustling market town of Henley on Thames, famed for its annual Royal Regatta, is approximately 4.4 miles and has a fine selection of independent shops and excellent leisure facilities including bars, restaurants, a cinema and theatre. The larger, historic town of Reading is also nearby offering a wider variety of shopping and restaurants. The newly refurbished Reading Station, soon to offer Crossrail in 2019, is approximately 3.8 miles and provides direct routes to London Paddington (c25 minutes). Access to the M4 is convenient with several junctions easily accessible. The surrounding countryside offers some of the finest walking and riding to be found in the Chiltern Hills, with a connecting network of footpaths and bridleways stretching for miles. There are also many highly regarded schools in the local area, both state and independent.

Outside

The secluded gardens of Highfield House amount to approximately 0.781 acres and lay to both sides and rear of the property bounded by a mix of panel fencing, and mixed, native hedging. Beyond the boundaries are open fields owned by the Phillimore Estate. There is a substantial area of gravelled parking and a good expanse of lawn. To the West side of the garden there are professionally landscaped mature, tiered herbaceous flower beds which provide an attractive view from the garden room. There is also a terrace area off the kitchen and a deck off the garden room.
