LOCATION
Situated on the Berkshire Downlands some 550 feet above sea level is the small rural community of Westridge Green centred mainly around an open Green and comprising a cluster of interesting properties many dating from the Victorian and Edwardian eras together with a fine Georgian Farmhouse and a number of superbly converted Farm Barns.


Much of the surrounding farmland and countryside is owned by the Yattendon Estate which has helped to retain the rural way of life and limited obtrusive development as well as being ‘caring’ custodians of the land.


The notable village of Aldworth is just over a ½ mile away with its main prized Bell Inn owned by the same family for many generations.


Also close by is the picturesque village of Streatley on Thames with its neighbouring village Goring on Thames lying opposite on the Oxfordshire bank of the River offering an excellent range of shops, restaurants and facilities including a mainline Station with fast commuter services up to London (Paddington).


In the local area there is a good number of both Private and State schools including the acclaimed “Downs” secondary school for which there is a school bus stop close by in the village.



PROPERTY DESCRIPTION
Westerly cottage is believed to date originally from 1848, and has been sympathetically extended by the current owners, transforming it into a fantastic contemporary family sized 4 bedroom home whilst retaining its original character. An attractive oak framed porch leads to the Entrance Hall, and on to the Cloakroom and spacious fitted Kitchen with a host of in-built equipment. Beyond this is a large part-glazed Dining/Family Room with bi-folding doors onto the garden, and Sitting Room with brick fireplace and wood burning stove.


To the first floor are 3 bedrooms, including the Master Bedroom with En-Suite which takes full advantage of the spectacular open views, and a family Bathroom with separate shower.  To the second floor is an impressive Guest Suite with spacious Bathroom with exposed brick wall and dressing area.


Early viewing is advised to fully appreciate the wonderful rural setting.



OUTSIDE
Set back from the road, the property has a wide hedged frontage with a gated entrance and gravelled forecourt providing ample parking and leading to a timber built detached Double Garage/Workshop.


Side access is available to the main garden to the rear enjoying a most dramatic outlook over undulating Downland countryside and Estate owned farmland. Mainly laid to lawn, with mature planted borders and a timber store shed & greenhouse to one side. A wide paved terrace accessed from the Dining Room provides the perfect spot for ‘al-fresco’ dining and the post and rail rear boundary fence affords uninterrupted stunning open views over the adjoining farmland and rolling Downlands beyond.
