A unique and very stylish conversion, in a stunning rural location.

The origins of the Pump House are showcased by the retained tower - the former pump house to the Maidenhatch Estate. This attractive and very unusual tower is topped by a hipped roof, which now provides the imposing entrance and hallway of the newly refurbished building.

The accommodation has an elegant, stylish and modern feel, with the conversion including all-new central heating, electrics, flooring, bathrooms, primary double glazing, kitchen, and oak joinery throughout, pressurised hot water system with Megaflow and pressure indirect cylinder and an immersion heater, as well as a new private water system and sewage treatment plant.

Inside, the spacious open-plan living room has wood flooring and is flooded with natural light courtesy of windows on two aspects and skylights within the vaulted ceiling, where grey painted beams create an architectural feature. The kitchen is situated in a large side alcove and is fitted with modern, grey-coloured wall and base level units, providing a pleasing visual complement to the beam-framework. The focus of the kitchen is a range cooker, with the fittings being finished with polished quartz worksurfaces, which also provide a breakfast bar for informal dining. An inner hall leads to a utility room, where there is space for additional units and appliances, and which also doubles as a cloakroom. A glazed door gives access to the garden from this hallway, which leads on via a short staircase down to a bright sitting room with French doors opening to the outside and on the opposite side to an en suite bedroom. A further staircase rises up to reach two upper level bedrooms, which feature skylight windows, with the principal room having an en suite shower room, and where an additional shower room can be accessed from the landing.

Outside

To the front of the property there is a large gravelled driveway providing parking for several vehicles and a storm porch provides protection from the elements at the entrance doorway. A side gate gives access to the rear garden, which is laid to lawn with areas of paved terracing adjoining the house offering opportunities for outdoor dining whilst enjoying the southwesterly aspect.

Steps lead down to the lower level of the garden with a pathway wrapping around to the north-east facing side, where retaining walls comprise structural stone-filled gabion baskets and a further area of paving provides additional space for relaxing outside. To the north of house there is a wild garden and a disused garage. An additional access road (shared right of way with the neighbouring property, Hogmoor House) to The Pump House runs along the northern boundary (plans are available from the agent).

Situation

The Pump House is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by stunning rolling countryside, with plenty of country walks on footpaths and bridleways accessible from the property. Everyday amenities and facilities can be found in Pangbourne and Theale, two miles and four miles away respectively, including a selection of shops, supermarket, pubs and cafés. There is an excellent choice of schooling in the area, with Pangbourne College nearby, Bradfield College within easy access, and St Andrew’s Preparatory School, Moulsford Boys School, Cranford House, Downe House and The Oratory in the local area. The area also offers several superb leisure facilities, including the fitness and tennis centre at Bradfield College and golf available at Streatley Hills, Mapledurham and Calcot.

Communication links are excellent with the M4 within five miles of the property, while mainline rail services are available from Pangbourne and Theale, which both offer fast and regular commuter services to London (46 minutes and 33 minutes to London Paddington respectively).

Directions

From Pangbourne, turn onto the A340, passing The Elephant Hotel and turn right onto Pangbourne Hill. After a third of a mile, turn left onto Bere Court Road, and after just more than a mile, at the crossroads, proceed across onto Dark Lane. After a quarter of a mile, take the lane on the left where the driveway to Hogmore House will be on the right-hand side after approximately half a mile. Proceed down the gravel drive to the right hand side of Hogmoor House, and a dedicated parking area will be found at the front of The Pump House.
