Hamstead Holt dates from the late 18th century and is built over 3 floors with fine classical elevations and sash windows. The house has been tastefully refurbished and extended to create a beautiful and comfortable family home. The accommodation is well proportioned with a
generous drawing room and dining room together with a spectacular vaulted kitchen/breakfast room, created from the former dairy. Typical for the period the house has many useful utility rooms such as the laundry, boot room, larder and utility. The bedrooms are all of a good size with recently fitted bath/shower rooms. The master bedroom suite is particularly impressive, with a large
bathroom to one side of the bedroom and a dressing room to the other.
The house is approached from the lane via double gates to a large gravelled parking area to the front of the house. To one side is a charming Regency style leaded canopy on wrought iron pillars and a sheltered and part walled terraced garden. French doors open from the drawing room on to a charming and sheltered terrace with outstanding views over the adjoining farmland. The gardens to the west of the house are laid mainly to lawn with a well screened tennis court lying beyond.
Hamstead Holt House lies in an Area of Outstanding Beauty, surrounded by unspoilt open countryside about a mile from the popular village of Kintbury and between the market towns of Newbury and Hungerford. The house, which lies alongside a fine range of traditional converted barns, enjoys outstanding rural views over
farmland and yet is within a few minutes' drive of the village centre which has a primary school, shop/post office, butcher's shop, pub/restaurant, doctor's surgery and church as well as a mainline railway station. The River Kennett, a well-known chalk stream and the Kennet & Avon Canal pass within a mile of the property and there is also good riding in the immediate area. There is a wide selection of schools in the area, both private and state, including Cheam, Elstree, Thorngrove
and Horris Hill prep schools, Marlborough, Radley,
Downe House and Bradfield public schools.
There is a separate access from the road to the fenced paddock with an area of woodland to one side
