This traditional family home was built in 2011 and offers spacious and well presented accommodation over 3 floors. The ground floor is well laid out with the formal sitting room at the front of the house with a pretty bay window and a fireplace fitted with a gas fired woodburner effect fire. The family room and dining room overlook the garden and rural aspect with bi-folding doors leading to the outside from the dining room. There is oak flooring throughout with underfloor heating via an air source heat pump. The kitchen breakfast room is an excellent space with a wood burning stove and the kitchen is fitted with smart painted cabinetry, a range oven and a butler's sink.
From the hall, stairs rise to the first floor where the master bedroom suite, three double bedrooms and the family bathroom can be found. On the second floor there is a sizeable guest bedroom with en suite shower room and a large walk in room offering ample full height storage space.
This room is currently used as a cinema room as it has a Sony 65” UHD TV with Arcam surround sound system. The house is fitted with Multi Room Audio and HD Video distribution over Cat5e infrastructure ready for a Digital Streaming set (Sonos/Heos/Linn Naim etc). The master bedroom has Bowers & Wilkins high quality ceiling speakers, the kitchen has Bowers & Wilkins M-1 wall mount speakers and the lounge and study are prepared for floor standing speakers.

The property is located in the popular village of Upper Basildon at the edge of the Berkshire Downlands with scenic countryside surrounding that is renowned for its walks and riding. The village offers a primary school and preschool, a recreation ground, public tennis courts, the Red Lion public house, and a village hall that hosts a variety of community clubs and activities, as well as a wonderful monthly farmers market. More comprehensive amenities can be found in the nearby Thameside village of Pangbourne as well as in the city of Reading that is located only approximately 8 miles from the property. The property is well-positioned for transport links with the mainline Pangbourne station and the M4 nearby, both providing easy access to London and other regional centres.
The area is also well served by an excellent range of schooling, both state and private. Of particular note are Bradfield College, St Andrews Preparatory School, Pangbourne College, Downe House and The Oratory School.

The house is approached through electric wood gates onto a brick paved driveway in front of the house. To one side is the detached garage and there is access down both sides to the rear garden. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and has mature hedging on the side boundaries and lower level planting along the back perimeter fence with lovely views over the field behind and countryside beyond.
