West Hagbourne was once joined to its sister village of East Hagbourne, located some ¾ mile away, but is now a separate hamlet following ‘the great fire of Hagbourne' in 1659 which destroyed the part of the village that stretched across the field beside the brook connecting the two villages. With a population of approximately 250, there are numerous old cottages and a fine Georgian farmhouse depicting the village's mainly farming architectural heritage.
Having Saxon origins and mentioned in the Domesday Book, the village has beautiful Berkshire Downland countryside on its doorstep and enjoys good road communications, being within a few miles of the A34 linking the south coast with the Midlands, as well as giving easy local access to Newbury, Oxford, Abingdon, Reading and the M4 motorway network.
The thriving town of Didcot, now the largest town in South Oxfordshire, is only 2 miles away, with its expanding range of extensive high street shops and amenities, including a rail station which provides excellent commuter services up to London (Paddington) in approximately 40 minutes.
A simply stunning country house, originally formed from a pair of period cottages, set in approximately 0.90 of an acre, affording 5 reception rooms, 4 bedrooms, 2 being suites, and a family bathroom. The recent subject of a thorough and exacting restoration project throughout, with further additions to the original building, careful planning and attention has been provided for, creating a charming family home which provides well apportioned accommodation of approximately 3,212 sq ft internally, and a further 1,073 sq ft incorporated in the gardens and grounds by way of the delightful cultivated outbuildings.
Displaying impressive architectural flair and high quality fixtures and fittings throughout, Broomsticks has been successfully blended with traditional construction methods in tune with its heritage, skilfully combining more modern and contemporary open plan living with that of a rather more traditional and nature, with impressive character vaulted and beamed accommodation with large open fireplaces meeting contemporary glazed modern living head on, enhancing the historic period ambience, whilst embracing outside living to inside living, and as a consequence the property presents itself as a true ambassador of the modern age, with early viewing advised.
Privately siding on to Main Street, the property commands a most delightful situation behind mature hedging, overlooking it's stunning gardens and grounds.
The property benefits from having two separate gated driveways; A smaller driveway which leads up to the garaging side of the detached garaging / store complex, with a small parking area, and a larger splayed driveway which affords generous parking and leads up the side of the securely fenced garden to the detached home gym.
Delightfully attractive, the gardens and grounds wrap their way around the property, being largely laid to lawn, with extensive planting of mature hedging and herbaceous borders, interspersed with an array of mature trees, a traditional pond and surrounding terrace, and a tucked away large kitchen garden, with greenhouse and workshop.
To the rear of the house, a large stone laid terrace opens up off the wide glazed bi-fold doors from the kitchen / family room, perfect for ‘Al-Fresco' dining, whilst to the rear side of the house, there is a simply delightful children's play zone.
Both private and delightfully attractive, the gardens and grounds extend to approximately 0.90 of an acre, and are the subject of much care and attention, which will be evident upon viewing.
Services: Mains electricity, water, drainage are connected, with oil fired central heating.
