Crookham Hill, Crookham Common, Thatcham, Berkshire, RG19
Pinchington Hall is a splendid country house originally constructed around the early 1800's. Which has recently been renovated to bring the property back to its former glory and offers the enviable combination of period elegance with modern day contemporary living. Set in delightful grounds, the property stands proud with an impressive frontage in Bath stone which has been restored by a local stonemason. All rooms boast wonderful proportions with high ceilings. Notably, the grand central reception hall, is double height by virtue of the galleried landing, with light cascading in from the lantern roof above and featuring the impressive staircase. This space certainly exudes elegance and is both eye catching and striking.
Oak flooring runs throughout the ground floor with the principal rooms enjoying wonderful views of the grounds from the large sash windows, all of which are double glazed, and have been restored together with the staircase and architraving. Underfloor heating has been fitted throughout and the bathrooms are all well-appointed and spacious, with high specification sanitary ware. The kitchen has not been fitted, allowing the purchaser to fit this to their own specification. The basement consists of a series of rooms which is a blank canvas and could be utilised for a variety of different uses.
