The Property
Lothlorien is a unique and imaginatively designed split level house, built about 15 years ago and standing in an excellent and elevated position. It has been built to a high specification and is constructed of Mickelmersh brick, part tile hung,
under a tile roof with hardwood casement windows and French doors. The property is ideally suited for a family, providing flexible and spacious accommodation, and is arranged over 3 split level floors with fine views over the gardens and woodland to the west.

Lothlorien is approached from Slanting Hill via a 5-bar gate and gravelled drive to parking to the front of the house and garaging. The garaging comprises of 2 open bays and a third closed bay with internal stairs to a useful, insulated room over (currently a gym). A timber garden shed is located at one end of the garage block.

The gardens to the rear have been thoughtfully landscaped, and laid mainly to lawn interspersed by trees and shrubs. Sweeping gravel steps flanked by flower borders lead down to an attractive timber decked area over a pond edged with bulrushes. To one side of the decking is a clematis clad arch and to the other a pergola and wisteria. There is a large area of woodland beyond, providing an attractive backdrop to the property.

Lothlorien is situated in an attractive woodland setting on Slanting Hill, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just outside the village of Hermitage which lies about 4 miles north of Newbury. Hermitage has a variety of local amenities, including schools, a church, pub, post office/shop, and butchers. More comprehensive facilities are to be found in Newbury about 4 miles away. Lothlorien is in the catchment area for the popular Downs secondary school, although the area has a wide selection of schools, both primary and secondary, private and state.

Communications are excellent by road via A34 and M4, and by rail via Newbury & Reading (Paddington line).
