Oakfield House has recently been extensively refurbished and extended to create a spacious and comfortable family home. The drawing room and the dining room both have wood floors and are of excellent proportions, but without doubt the outstanding feature is the spectacular kitchen/breakfast/family room beneath which is a wine cellar. Doors from the kitchen area lead to the heated swimming pool. The Miele kitchen offers 2 fan ovens, steaming oven, microwave and 2 warming drawers as well as an inset hob. To one side is a breakfast bar with Tapenyaki plate and cylinder extractor fan above as well as a separate breakfast area. The master bedroom suite has a balcony which faces north-west with views over the unspoilt farmland, and there are 5 further bedrooms one of which is currently used as a study.
Over the garage and accessed from its own staircase is a guest suite with bed/sitting room, kitchenette area and shower room.
Oakfield House is approached from the lane via a curving drive to a complete turning circle in front of the house and garaging. The gardens are laid mainly to lawn and interspersed with trees,
shrubs and flower borders. Bi-folding doors from the kitchen/breakfast/family room open onto a wide and generous terrace running along the rear elevation and to one side is a covered barbeque area.
The property is situated in a hamlet close to the village of Ramsdell, about 5 miles North West of Basingstoke. The surrounding area provides an attractive setting for the property and is very accessible. Basingstoke, Newbury and Reading all offer comprehensive facilities and are within daily
driving distance, and there are excellent communications to London by rail via Basingstoke Station (Waterloo) or by road via the M4 or M3. There is a wide selection of schools in the area, both private and state, primary and secondary.
In particular The Priory Primary School which is just over 1 mile away.
