Essex Place, Lambourn, Hungerford, Berkshire, RG17
A most attractive detached property enviably located at the end of a quiet close, with an 'in and out' driveway and set behind high hedging with adjoining farmland to the side. The property is of red brick elevations under a tiled roof and has excellent well proportioned family accommodation arranged over two floors. The rooms are thoughtfully located providing a good flow, with the hallway leading to the good sized sitting room which features a wood-burner with stone surround. The kitchen/breakfast room is of generous size with a good range of fitted units and a complementary island; this in turn leads into the conservatory / dining room, a lovely light room which extends across much of the rear of the property with double doors out to the garden. Both the kitchen and conservatory have double doors leading into the sitting room, the kitchen offers access to a corridor which leads to the double garage and the utility room. To the front is a study with fitted cupboard and there is also a downstairs WC.
The first floor comprises the master bedroom with a well appointed ensuite shower room with underfloor heating, from which there are views over the farmland to the side of the property. The three further double bedrooms all have fitted cupboards and are served by the family bathroom (both bathrooms have been recently refitted within the last couple of years.) The loft is fully boarded (ideal for storage).
All in all this is an ideal family house, well arranged and having a lovely light and airy feel to it.
Lambourn enjoys an enviable position nestling in West Berkshire's most stunning countryside within the Valley of the Racehorse. The village provides local shopping, schooling, doctor's surgery and leisure facilities as well as numerous paths and bridleways over the surrounding downland. Major facilities are found at nearby Wantage, Hungerford, Newbury and Swindon. Communications are good with rail links at Hungerford, Newbury, Didcot and Swindon (London Paddington approximately 45mins from Didcot). The M4 motorway junction 14 is about 5 miles away and junction 15 being about 7 miles away, with the village being situated about 1 hour from London Heathrow airport by car.
Wood End enjoys a good degree of privacy, being set at the end of the close, with a high hedge and parking in the driveway for a number of cars in addition to the double garage (which has additional space for storage or a workshop to the rear). There are two areas of lawn to the front, being flanked by hedging and shrubbery. To the rear is a simply delightful garden, largely laid to lawn and again bordered by trees and shrubs, with a sizeable paved terrace for dining.
