Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Magpie Farm is a delightful grade II listed farmhouse in a beautiful yet accessible West
Berkshire location.

The house was originally a more modest sized, cruck framed farmhouse and has been enlarged in recent years. Magpie Farm is a lovely mix of the pretty farmhouse, a pair of cottages and a fantastic old tythe barn.

In the main house there is a characterful drawing room of generous proportions and a formal dining room belying the age of the property with beautiful period features and structural beams on display.

The kitchen/breakfast room at the heart of the house is a well proportioned room with high quality kitchen cabinetry and a 2 oven Aga. The sitting room/family room has a spiral wine cellar below, and there is also a utility room and cloakroom on the ground floor.

Upstairs there is a master bedroom suite with large dressing room and en suite bathroom, 4
further bedrooms and 2 further bathrooms. The cottages are semi-detached with a shared entrance therefore giving scope to convert to one larger residence if required. Currently they are ideal for a number of uses including additional guest accommodation, a 'granny' annexe or staff accommodation, or as a home office.

The accommodation in the left-hand cottage is all on the ground floor and comprises a living room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. In the right-hand cottage there is a living room/kitchen, bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor and a second bedroom upstairs.

Magpie Farm is situated on the edge of the village of Frilsham, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close to the Berkshire Downs and surrounded by wonderful walking and riding country.

In the village itself there is an active local community and excellent facilities including the highly regarded Harriett House school, the renowned Pot Kiln gastro pub/restaurant and the West Berkshire Brewery and cafe/kitchen which is within walking distance.

Nearby Yattendon has a village shop, coffee shop/cafe, hairdresser, and the popular Royal Oak pub, and Vicars Farm Shop is a short distance away in Ashampstead. The larger towns of Newbury and Pangbourne provide a wide range of shopping and leisure facilities.

Communications in the area are very good with trains from Pangbourne and Reading into London Paddington, and easy access to the M4 and A34.

There is an excellent range of schools nearby
including Elstree, St Andrew’s, Cheam, Brockhurst and Marlston House, Bradfield College and Downe House.Harriet House nursery and pre-prep school is about 500 yards away across the park, within
easy walking distance.

Magpie Farm is approached via a drive through
Yattendon Estate land culminating in a gravel driveway by the farmhouse and cottages.

The setting is wonderfully private with a rural feel being surrounded by beautiful tended estate land and majestic mature trees and woodland. The garden and grounds wrap around the house and are mainly laid to lawn interspersed with mature hedges and shrubs.

The grounds extend to approximately 1.3 acres and the current owners have rented adjacent
paddocks from the Yattendon Estate for many
years.

There is a swimming pool in a sheltered spot behind the tythe barn, in a slightly elevated position with a breathtaking rural outlook across
the estate land. The Tythe barn is a wonderful
space for entertaining and larger parties.
