A rare opportunity now exists to acquire Ash Farm which is to be found along a private no-through country road on the outskirts of the sought after village of Harpsden. Situated in an Area of
Outstanding Natural Beauty, the property is set in grounds approaching 0.85 of an acre and has delightful views over paddocks and open countryside. The original house was built in the 1930’s and has been considerably extended over the years to provide some 3068 square feet of accommodation. Ash Farm has the benefit of Planning Permission (P14/S1309/HH) which includes conversion of the existing garage to living space, a new single storey extension and the erection of a carport with a log store to the west of the property. Ash Farm is located three-quarters of a mile along an attractive single track private road. There is a sweeping ‘In and Out’ drive with ample parking for several vehicles. Entering the property
there is an entrance area, which features a double sided wood burning stove between the hall and family room and stairs leading to the first floor bedrooms. From this area there is also access to
the study/office. The family room lies between the hall and the principal reception room, the latter having direct access to the gardens. There is access to the kitchen/dining area from the living
areas. The kitchen features a breakfast bar with a mix of storage units under and a ‘built-in’ double oven. The dining area leads into an attractive large garden room providing delightful views and
with direct access to the gardens. There is a w.c. situated near the back door. Through the kitchen there is a utility area which leads to a large integral double garage and stairs up to a spacious triple
aspect studio above. The property has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, all with separate shower enclosures, with the fourth bedroom situated on the ground floor with adjacent bathroom. On the first floor are three well proportioned large bedrooms with two full bathrooms, one of which is en-suite.
Ash Farm enjoys a wonderful position on the edge of Harpsden which is considered one of Henley’s principal residential locations. Harpsden golf course is close by together with several others within the general area and the surrounding countryside provides lovely walks and rides. Henley town centre is approximately 2 miles providing a comprehensive range of shops, restaurants, cinema, theatre and recreational facilities including boating on the River Thames. There are excellent schools within Henley and the general area, both state and independent, notably Rupert House, Shiplake College, Queen Anne’s in Caversham and The Oratory. Henley Station provides regular services to Reading, via Twyford, to London Paddington (Inter-City services approximately 25 minutes). More extensive shopping and facilities can be found in Reading, approximately 7 miles, where Crossrail will be in 2019 and Oxford approximately 26 miles. The M4 and M40 Motorways are within a 10 mile radius providing access to London, Heathrow Airport, the M25 interchange and the West Country.
The gardens are a particular feature of Ash Farm and extend to 0.846 acres, much of which has been planted by the current owners. The property stands back from the private road where to the front there is a sweeping in and out gravel driveway. To the front and sides there is an area of lawn as well as mature mixed flower beds and borders. The main garden to the rear of the property has a good open expanse of lawn and to the side there are more mature flower beds and herbaceous borders and trees. There are a number of old farm buildings that at one time were part of the nearby farm but could be converted and used as additional garaging and or home office.
