The Property - The Property

Pincents Hill House started life as two cottages constructed in the 1880s. Purchased by the Bishop of Madras as his retirement home, and greatly extended by both him and subsequent owners, the house now consists of almost 5,000sq ft accommodation. The property occupies an elevated positon with outstanding far reaching views over Berkshire, and offers potential for further improvement to create a fabulous home within a beautiful setting. Secluded and private, the nearest house is 200m away. This is a rare opportunity - the property has been in the family’s ownership for over 60 years.

The property benefits from well-proportioned rooms throughout, with large windows flooding the house with light. The main reception hall has double doors onto the gardens as well as large windows to make the most of the stunning views. The principal ground floor rooms have doors to the raised terrace and far reaching Southerly views over rolling countryside.

Upstairs, the master bedroom suite boasts commanding views and there are 4 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The self-contained apartment could be re-incorporated into the main accommodation if needed.

Outside, lawned gardens slope away towards the South and the East, fringed with mature trees and shrubs framing the views. A choice of outbuildings including a 3 car garage and workshop with 2 inspection pits as well as a summer house. The land includes a field of around 1.3 acres which has previously been used for grazing horses, offering potential for equestrian use.
