Delivering the news from Henley on Thames and South Oxfordshire for over 100 years

5 bed Detached House


Wyfold Road, Wyfold, Gallowstree Common, Reading, RG4


The barn is thought to date back to around to c.1850 and retains a wealth of character with brick and flint walls
and original wood frame and beams. The floor plan enables flexible family living and offers huge potential and opportunity to update and develop, subject to local planning permissions.

The property is entered via a hallway which leads into the main reception room with impressive vaulted ceiling and a spiral wrought iron staircase leading up to galleried mezzanine level.

There is a delightful homely dual aspect country kitchen and breakfast room with a good range of built in storage units and a mixture of granite and tiled work surfaces with integrated Neff appliances, and a double sink.

Other reception rooms include an octagonal conservatory and a cosy family room.

There are 5 bedrooms, 2 with en suite bath and shower rooms. A family bathroom with shower and a guest cloakroom completes the accommodation.

The semi-formal gardens immediately around the barn are well planted providing year round colour. There is a summerhouse and a ¼ of an acre of orchards. A covered courtyard connects to the secondary accommodation which features two annexed apartments. Outside there is a useful utility room, open barn garaging, a gardener's wash room, w.c. and shower and over the garaging is a good sized studio space which lends itself to various uses. There is a paddock with large shed and further grazing land amounting to around 11 acres in total.

Leave Henley passing Falaise Square and the Town Hall to the right and straight up Gravel Hill. Pass Badgemoor Park Golf Club and the National Trust's Greys Court on the right and stay on this road for around 4 miles. At the T-junction turn left onto the B431 and keep on this road for about a mile, passing through Peppard Common, down a steep hill and then turn sharp right into Gallowstree Road, keep straight on this road, crossing over the Stoke Row Road, passing The Greyhound Public House and the Reformation Public House. Turn right into Wyfold Road and the barn will be found after a short distance on the right.
