Built in 1897, The Warren is a fine traditional detached Victorian Country House with a wealth of original features and high ceilings. The existing owners, the third owners in 119 years, have undertaken a programme of sympathetic renovation and modernisation with much care being taken to retain the majority of the original period features, including the Victorian kitchen
range and many Victorian feature fireplaces. The majority of the principal rooms (both downstairs and upstairs) benefit from the high ceilings and generous room sizes the Victorian era is renowned for, making it a fine family home. The accommodation is arranged over three floors with the welcoming reception hall leading to the principal ground floor rooms, each having a pleasant dual aspect over the grounds and
benefiting from large casement windows providing plenty of natural light. The handcrafted fitted kitchen boasts a mains gas fuelled Aga and has been remodelled to give a large bright open plan room that incorporates a generous dining area leading to a glazed partition and doorway through to the family room which has floor to ceiling bi-folding doors opening onto the garden. A study/games room is located off the family room.
To the first floor are four light and airy bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room. Off the master bedroom is a further generous room currently configured as a study, though this could be
converted into a wonderful en suite bathroom/dressing room or sixth bedroom. To the second floor is located the fifth bedroom and twin walk in attic store rooms together with further attic space with the potential for conversion.
The Warren is situated on the edge of the pretty village of Eversley located on the Hampshire/Berkshire border. Eversley provides day-to-day facilities including a local shop/post office, 4 public houses and church (which is renowned for its former Curate and author Charles Kingsley) and its well known village cricket club and green. A Waitrose store is 3 miles /7 mins away and the larger commercial centres at Wokingham, Reading and Camberley offer comprehensive shopping and
leisure facilities. There is a choice of highly regarded schools within convenient reach including St Neots Preparatory School and Nursery (a few minutes walk), the highly regarded Charles Kingsley Primary School, Yateley Manor, Eagle House and Wellington College.

The Warren is set in the middle of the approximate 2.4 acre grounds within a large clearing of mixed species woodland hosting a wide variety of birdlife. A long sweeping laurel/rhododendron lined gravelled drive leads up to a wooded circle which provides access to both the front of the property as well as to the side of the house (that has
a further gravelled area providing space for the parking of a number of vehicles) and the triple bay oak framed barn/garage. A path flanked by an attractive flowering shrub border opens onto a paved sun terrace that extends across the rear of the property and can be accessed from the family room via the bi-folding doors. An area of lawn continues from the sun terrace and leads into the
mixed woodland which provides privacy and seclusion for the gardens and grounds.
The village of Eversley resides in both the Hampshire District of Hart (which has been crowned for the fifth year in succession as the most desirable place to live in the UK) , as well as in the Forest of Eversley ( 26,000 hectares of former medieval royal hunting forest) which is a Countryside Heritage Area. The property is within metres of hundreds of acres of woodland (Warren Heath, Heath Warren and Bramshill Forest) which
provide outstanding opportunities for walking, cycling, running and riding (with a choice of local livery yards) and country pursuits. The property is strategically well placed for local, regional and international communications.
