Holdrop House is a very attractive Grade II Listed house thought to date from the 15th century and has been owned by the same family for 40 years. The reception rooms are well-proportioned and the
drawing room in particular is a generous size opening onto a charming south facing vine covered terrace. The kitchen is well positioned with a room adjoining that is currently used as a tv room/study but could equally well be used as a playroom, or incorporated into the kitchen. There are useful utility/store rooms to the rear of the house in keeping with a property of this period. The master bedroom faces south and has a substantial adjoining bathroom, with the remainder of the bedrooms also of good proportions.
The gardens are a significant feature of the property and amount to approximately 2 acres. They are beautifully laid out with lawned areas, rose garden, flower borders, ornamental trees and shrubs and provide a lovely setting for the house. There is also an enclosed swimming pool and tennis court.
Land & Equestrian Facilities
The equestrian facilities can also be accessed from
the lane where there is a large parking area, with the stabling to one side and a manege on the other. There are 3 fenced paddocks, one with a field shelter and all with water, which amount to 8.5 acres.
There is a very attractive barn lying to the front of the house which provides garaging, a workshop, loft, stabling, store and potting shed. Part, or all of the barn, could be converted to provide separate
accommodation subject to the usual planning consents. There is also a studio/games room with a large north facing window.
Holdrop House is situated on the edge of the village of Headley which lies between Kingsclere and Newbury. Headley has a post office/ommunity shop and church and nearby Ashford Hill has a primary school and pub, and within a few miles in nearby Kingsclere there are local shops and services. There is also good access to Newbury, Reading and Basingstoke which all provide a comprehensive range of shops as well as sporting and leisure facilities. There is a wide selection of schools in the area, both private and state, including Cheam, Elstree and Thorngrove prep schools, Bradfield College, Downe House and St Gabriels.
Communications to London and major road networks are excellent by road via the M4 and M3, and by rail via Basingstoke (Waterloo line) or Thatcham (Paddington) stations.
