Believed to date back to about 1910, Stonehurst is a charming family house with generous room proportions, high ceilings and large sash windows providing a light and airy feel. A spacious hallway with room for a large table for entertaining leads to a traditional kitchen with an Aga. From the kitchen, a utility room and shower room give access to the terrace leading down into the garden. In addition to the original dining and sitting rooms, there is a large drawing room on the other side of the house with huge picture windows looking over the gardens and open fields beyond.
There are five bedrooms and two bathrooms arranged over the two upper floors. All bedrooms are a generous size and the two bedrooms on the second floor allow maximum flexibility and would be ideal for teenage children or guests.
Stonehurst sits in a prime position on the edge of Beenham, a lovely village which benefits from its own church, pub and primary school. The adjacent village of Bradfield Southend provides a further primary school, village store & post office, and gastro pub, The Queens Head. Theale is about 4 miles away and provides a further range of facilities including a commuter train to London, Paddington. Reading and Newbury are also close by and offer a comprehensive range of amenities including shops, restaurants and theatres.
The range of schooling in the area is excellent, including St Andrews, The Oratory, Elstree School, Bradfield College and Downe House. There are a variety of recreational pursuits available in the area and the surrounding countryside is renowned for its walks and rides.
The house is approached over a tarmacadam driveway with plenty of parking and a double garage. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and hedging providing year round colour and interest. To the rear of the property is a south facing terrace running the length of the back of the house. There is a wooden pergola, covered in mature wisteria which is beautiful in the summer months and a large lawn, with herbaceous borders on either side, leading down to the bottom of the garden. Here there is an area of wild flower meadow, beyond which there are open fields and views.
