A charming and historic Grade II* listed cottage, in one of the most sought after villages
Dumbledore, is a unique and delightful 3 bed detached cottage, (Grade II* listed), in Stanford Dingley. Full of character and original features, the property is thought to date from 1475 and be the oldest property in the village. It is of particular historic interest as it is a rare and excellent example of a rendered Cruck timber frame house.
To the ground floor there is a large sitting room with adjoining drawing room; both with open fireplaces and a useful study leading from the sitting room. The ground floor also benefits from a newly fitted shower room. Upstairs can be accessed by two staircases. The first one directly into bedroom one and the second staircase leads to a small landing which has access to bedroom two, three and the family bathroom. The family bathroom also has a jack and jill access from bedroom 1. Bedroom 3 is a single with eaves storage.
The property is surrounded by garden on three sides. It is approached from the popular village via a five bar gate. The cottage sits in a beautiful, mature garden offering plenty of privacy and has been well maintained and cared for by its current owners. The spacious garden is mostly laid to lawn with well planted flower beds, an orchard area and vegetable garden. Additionally, there is a detached garden room and two garages offering ample parking for several cars.
Stanford Dingley is a highly desirable village in West Berkshire with a Saxon church and two public houses, The Bull Inn dating back to the 15th Century and The Old Boot which dates back to the 18th Century. The charming village sits in beautiful farmland and woodland within the valley of the River Pang. The local villages of Bucklebury and Bradfield offer excellent local amenities including churches, public houses and village shops. Bradfield College is nearby and also has excellent sporting facilities available via membership, including a golf course, indoor sports complex, pool and tennis centre, whilst in Bradfield village itself there is primary school for children aged 4-11, rated 'Good' by Ofsted. There are a number of sought after preparatory schools in the area including Elstree, St Andrews and Yattendon Primary School. Reading and Newbury are 10 and 9 miles away respectively, and provide more comprehensive facilities and shopping opportunities. The area benefits from excellent commuter and travel facilities with easy access onto the M4 at junctions 12 and 13 to London and the West Country, and an excellent train service from Reading or Pangbourne to London Paddington.
From the centre of Pangbourne head south towards Tidmarsh on the A340. Go through Tidmarsh and continue over a bridge which spans the M4 motorway, turn right signposted Bradfield and Upper Bucklebury. Continue along this road for approximately 3 miles going through Bradfield. After a short time you will arrive at a T junction with a war memorial on your left. Turn right signed for Upper Bucklebury, and then turn right again onto Cock Lane (by the Queens Head public house). Proceed for about another 1.5 miles and Dumbledore will be found on the left handside almost opposite a road called Casey Court.Read all
