4 bed Detached House


Hill Farm, Shop Lane, Leckhampstead, Newbury, RG20

Property Description

A much loved family home which has been in the same family for approximately 60 years and which is being brought to the market for the first time as a whole and includes farmhouse,
barn and land. The Old Farmhouse dates back in part to 1830 and has been beautifully extended and modernised to create a stunning detached, four bedroom family home. The property is
located in the centre of the desirable village of Leckhampstead.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors and comprises a
light and welcoming open entrance hall, being double height and therefore with a wonderful feeling of space with natural light oozing
in. There is also a useful storage cupboard and a cloakroom. Double doors off the entrance hall extend into a spacious sitting
room with a brick inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove. This in turn leads into the dining room/family room. On the opposite side of the entrance hall lies a modern and spacious
kitchen / breakfast room with adjacent utility room which has access to the garden. On the first floor the master bedroom has an adjoining dressing room and en suite shower room, there are three
further bedrooms and a modern family bathroom.
Adjacent to The Old Farmhouse is a two bedroom detached barn conversion which is utterly charming and offers versatile
accommodation with further scope to reconfigure and adapt. It has a wealth of character with exposed beams and brickwork, with all the rooms enjoying a pleasant outlook. This would suit
those purchasers requiring secondary accommodation, or a property which has the potential to provide a rental income.
Alternatively, the two buildings could potentially be re-joined, subject of course to the relevant consents.

Leckhampstead is a charming small village set in the beautiful rural surroundings of North Berkshire, to the north west of Newbury.

The Old Farmhouse is accessed via a gravelled driveway which offers parking for several cars and is flanked by lawn which is enclosed with laurel hedging, interspersed with fully stocked
borders, trees and shrubs. Separate vehicular access to the rear leads to the detached barn which serves as a converted two bedroom property, set around a pretty courtyard garden.
There are a range of outbuildings (including a former workshop/possible business use subject to consent), paddocks and an orchard. The land has a wonderful open outlook, backing onto adjoining farmland and is set within the North Wessex Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
