Sunnyholme was originally built in the 1920s and extended by the current owner, who has lived there for over 30 years. The house is extremely light and well- proportioned with three attractive gables at the front, housing large bay windows overlooking the attractive front garden. Of particular note is the triple aspect sitting room and dining room, providing excellent entertaining space with a log burning fireplace and sliding doors leading out to the terrace and rear garden. The kitchen is well appointed, and also orientates towards the rear garden, with stunning views.
Upstairs there are four very generous double bedrooms, one with en suite shower room, and a family bathroom. All the rooms have ample wardrobe and storage space and the windows are double glazed throughout.

Sunnyholme is nestled in a secluded heather and woodland setting close to the village of Bucklebury which is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Bucklebury is neatly positioned with good links to Newbury and Reading, and the close by hamlet of Upper Bucklebury which benefits from a general store, church, pub and primary school. Chapel Row is close by, and has a well renowned gastropub, The Bladebone Inn, an interior design shop and the Blackbird café.
There is an excellent range of schooling in the area, both state and private. Of particular note are Bradfield College, Downe House, The Downs School, Brockhurst and Marlston House School and Elstree School.
The M4 (J12) is approximately 12 miles away and provides excellent vehicular access to London and its airports. Junction 13 is approximately 6 miles away and gives access to the West Country.
The area is well served with recreational pursuits, and the local countryside is renowned for its beautiful walks and rides.

The gardens and grounds at Sunnyholme are delightful and lie mainly to the rear of the property, with wonderful lawns running from the house down towards the orchard, with apple and cherry trees. Sitting neatly behind hedging between the orchard and garden, lie the fruit cages and green houses. On the northerly edge of the garden lie the two paddocks and the stable block with tack room and hay barn. There is stock-proof fencing on the boundaries and also dividing the paddock from the formal gardens. There is separate access to the stable block via a field gate further down the lane.
To the front of the house there is ample parking for cars on the gravel driveway, as well as an integrated double garage.
