Brimpton Road, Baughurst, Tadley, Hampshire, RG26
A former coach house, this splendid detached period property with well proportioned accommodation arranged over two floors dates back to 1812, with later additions. The ground floor offers an elegant double aspect drawing room with an open fireplace within the impressive surrounds. This leads into the study which has a door to outside and enjoys views over the grounds to the rear. In addition, there is a separate formal dining room and a cosy family room. The kitchen/breakfast room is to the rear, with an adjoining corridor leading to the utility room and a bathroom. On the first floor there are 4 double bedrooms, a sizeable family bathroom with bath and separate shower, plus a separate WC; the principal bedroom has a basin and potential to create full en suite facilities if required. This is an example of a beautiful spacious period family home offering a certain elegance characteristic of its era, with generous windows enhancing the natural light throughout.
The property is set back from the road behind mature hedging and is approached via a gravelled driveway which extends around the back of the house and provides ample parking for numerous cars. The pretty front garden extends around to the side and then to the rear. The garden is bordered by a wide variety of mature shrubs and trees, with some raised vegetable beds to the far end of the barn and an attractive pergola with a vine which produces an abundance of edible grapes. A generous lawn to the rear continues into a further area, again with mature trees.
The barn (formerly the stables) has been beautifully converted to create a wonderful space which could be utilised for all manner of uses. It would, of course, serve as an excellent home office away from the house, or with some further development (to include the upper room) it could become an annexe for relatives etc. The adjoining workshop and store provide invaluable storage for garden machinery.
