A HIDDEN GEM - noir by david cliff - This unique four-bedroom detached home was built in the 1960s to the owner’s own design and sits amongst nearly three acres of beautiful mature woodland gardens. Offered for sale with no onward chain and offering flexible family accommodation, this is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a truly unique home. There is updating required and will therefore appeal to those looking to create their dream abode. From the entrance hall there is the south facing living room complete with an open fireplace and wonderful picture windows looking out into the garden. This leads one way to the open plan dining room and to the other, double doors which lead to a large triple aspect family room. The kitchen/breakfast room has access outside and into a large utility area. On the ground floor is the study/office, plus two double bedrooms, the family bathroom and a separate cloakroom, whilst on the first floor the main bedroom includes lots of storage space in the eaves to either side. There is a further south facing bedroom and cloakroom situated between the rooms, plus two loft spaces, one small and one very large, thus potentially suitable for conversion.
The property is approached via a gravel drive off Brimpton Road and opens up with parking for many vehicles and further spaces to the side where you will find the two garages and store. There are formal lawned gardens facing south west, which run into the beautiful woodland gardens. These have pathways going in different directions through the trees with a wonderful array of colour from the rhododendrons and azaleas. They are truly amazing gardens and will suit nature lovers and conservationists and those seeking the refuge of peace and tranquillity. The woodland, a mixture of deciduous and evergreen trees, mainly oak, beech, pine and silver birch, is bordered by a small meandering stream and is a varied habitat for wildlife including roe and muntjac deer, pheasants, red kites, kestrels and pipistrelle bats.
Situated within the Reading/Newbury/Basingstoke triangle, Baughurst is a delightful village enjoying a range of facilities including a village shop and public house, with a post office and further amenities in nearby Tadley.
