A beautiful grade II listed house in approx 4 acres with swimming pool and equestrian facilities
Lane End Cottage is a characterful family home, which in recent years has been renovated and brought up to a high level of sophistication by the current owners. The house now has the seductive feel of a well maintained period property, with a stylish and up-to-date interior. Of particular note is the large kitchen/breakfast room which flows seamlessly into a family living space, great for relaxing or entertaining, and there are French doors leading out to beautiful gardens. The original and oldest part of the house is the sitting room, which has beautiful exposed beams which have been sand-blasted back to their original pale oak colour, which is highly attractive. The accommodation at Lane End Cottage is extremely versatile with either one or two bedrooms and a shower room located on the ground floor, and a further three bedrooms and 3 bathrooms upstairs. The main bedroom also has a dressing room with bespoke cupboards. There are wonderful views across the gardens and grounds.
This property has 3.95 acres of land.
The house sits in generous gardens with imaginative flower borders and sweeping lawns close to the house itself, providing a pretty backdrop for the attractive period house. Beyond this there are extensive areas of lawn looking over the pony paddocks and equestrian facilities beyond. The paddocks, accented with beautiful mature trees, are post and railed and there is an impressive brick-built stable block. There is a swimming pool garden which is screened by mature hedging providing privacy and shelter from the wind whilst relaxing by the pool. There is also a smart vegetable garden with raised beds and two large timber and glazed greenhouses.
The small village of Brimpton is set in a rural location close to the popular Berkshire towns of Thatcham and Newbury. The village has a local pub and a primary school, while the nearby villages of Aldermaston and Woolhampton provide further everyday amenities, including local shops, pubs and a train station. Thatcham and Newbury offer a good selection of amenities and leisure facilities, plus an excellent choice of schools, including the 'outstanding' rated Kennet School in Thatcham, Cedars School, Alder Bridge School, and independent schools including Elstree, Cheam, Bradfield and Downe House. The area is well connected by road, with the A339 and A4 linking with the M3 and M4 providing fast access to London, Heathrow Airport, and the West Country, and there are excellent train services from Midgham station direct to London Paddington taking from 51 minutes, or from Basingstoke to Waterloo in under an hour.
From Newbury, follow the A339 east towards Reading, pass through Thatcham and after a short distance pass the Coach and Horses on your left and take the right turn into Brimpton Road. Follow this road into Brimpton and at the T-junction turn left, follow the road round the sharp bend to the right and continue for approximately 1 mile into Brimpton Common, and then take the right fork by a mini triangle of grass, and the entrance to Lane End Cottage will be found immediately on your right.Read all
