The Pottery, orginally built as the forge to the
village is listed grade II and thought to date
from 1750-1800. Home of Aldermaston Pottery
for more than 40 years, the property has now
been beautifully and sensitively restored by its
current owners to create a striking home. With
a modern twist, the Pottery retains many of the
period features you would expect such as
exposed brickwork and timbers and original
flooring. This fine conversion is thoughtfully
laid out and a spectacular vaulted oak framed
extension comprising a kitchen/breakfast room
and dining room complements the more
traditional feel of the original Pottery. Upstairs
are two bedroom suites, third bedroom and
family shower room. A ladder provides access
to a mezzanine which is currently used as a
bedroom but could equally be used as a study.
The Pottery is situated in the centre of Aldermaston
which lies midway between Newbury and Reading.
This pretty village is mainly comprised of period
houses and has a village shop, church, village
hall, hairdressers, pub, 2 primary schools and a
mainline railway station. There is good access to
Reading, Newbury and Basingstoke and excellent
communications to London and the rest of the
country by road via the M4, M3 and A34, and by
rail via Theale, Reading, Newbury and Basingstoke
stations. There is also a good range of both private
and state schools in the area.
To the rear of the property is a beautifully landscaped garden comprising lawned areas, well stocked borders, wisteria covered pergola and courtyard garden. Leading from the kitchen and dining room is a private west facing terrace with views overlooking the garden and farmland beyond. The property is approached via a shared gravel drive to a parking and turning area and access to two garden sheds.
