1900`s GRANDEUR AND CHARACTER - noir by david cliff – Monktons is a six bedroom detached house dating back to around 1910. Located in an enviable position midway between the centre of the highly sought after village of Mortimer and the station with connections to Reading and London beyond, the house has views over open fields. The entire layout is thoroughly resplendent with no expense spared in the renovations that have taken place. That said, many of the original features have been retained to include the incredible original tiled reception hall, open fireplaces and servants bell box. There is a true feeling of space and light here in all rooms, enhanced by the high ceilings, bay windows and over-sized sash windows that were typical of that era. The overall floor plan is substantial with a total area of .4290 sq. ft. set out over three floors with each room enjoying wonderful views.
The entire house has been sympathetically renovated to an incredibly high standard, including refitted and genuinely luxury bathrooms and shower rooms. The multi-tiered master en-suite bathroom includes a Villeroy & Boch sunken bath with breath-taking views and walk-in steam shower, beautifully fitted kitchen/breakfast room with numerous high quality appliances and a memorable fireplace to the drawing room with stylish log burning stove. The dual aspect master bedroom also has the most amazing views and benefits from a stylish dressing room, whilst the remaining bedrooms are all different in size and shape and enjoy equally compelling aspects. It could sound a little cliché but this property very definitely is the perfect mix of traditional and contemporary finish and in our opinion, masterfully executed.
The grounds are some 0.54 acres in total (measured via Promap) and very tastefully landscaped with views to the east side of the house over fields, and the remainder of the garden is secluded. The house is approached via a large gravel driveway that provides parking for several vehicles and there is also a substantial detached triple garage block with annexe/office above.
Mortimer village is ideally located for the commuter with London easily reachable from the local station within an hour. This part of West Berkshire has a fantastic range of leisure facilities and essential amenities to hand as well as esteemed schooling.
A little further afield is the city of Reading with its multitude of facilities and access to both the M4 and M3 motorways is within reasonable driving distance ensuring that Heathrow and Gatwick airports are convenient for the traveller.
This unique family home is sold with `No onward chain` and we thoroughly recommend a viewing which is strictly by appointment.
