Description  

LOCATION Lambourn is a bustling village renowned for its horse racing connections. It offers the convenience of local shops, post office, church, primary and junior schools and recreational facilities and is only 5 miles from junction 14 of the M4 motorway. The market towns of Hungerford and Wantage are approximately 8 miles distant with Newbury 13 miles, Swindon 10 miles and Didcot 14 miles and a main line route to London Paddington. Connecting trains are also available at the nearer location of Hungerford. 

DESCRIPTION St. Alphage is an impressive detached house dating from 1910 and sits in beautiful mature grounds of approximately half an acre. Arranged over three floors, this fine period home retains much of its character including open fireplaces, tall ceilings with attractive cornices and traditional polished brass door furniture. A particular feature of this beautiful family home is the light and airy feel of the house with plentiful windows. The accommodation includes a central entrance hall with doors either side, leading to an equally well proportioned drawing and dining room which have large bay windows. The country style kitchen / breakfast room runs across the rear of the house and is truly the heart of the home. It has views over the garden and is served by a convenient utility / boot room. To the side of the house there is a tranquil garden room perfect for quiet reflection with French doors leading onto a secluded sun terrace. Upstairs there are five comfortable bedrooms served by two bathrooms on both the first and second floor, as well as a smaller room, perfect for a study. The master and second bedroom enjoy far reaching countryside views. 

OUTSIDE The house benefits from being well set back from the street and is approached via a sweeping driveway which leads to a good sized gravelled parking area. The double width garage has up and over doors, power and light. The grounds measure approximately 0.4 acres in total and are lovingly tended. Impressive steps lead to the front terrace, flanked by lawns and established shrub borders. The garden is very interesting and includes hidden corners including a sheltered area with railway sleeper retainers and a paved terrace beneath the shade of a pergola. There are further lawned and landscaped areas too as well as mature shrubs and trees. An added bonus is the greenhouse and vegetable plot. The garden backs onto paddocks and equestrian facilities.  

SERVICES The property runs on mains gas with no double glazing.
