About this property

TENURE: Share of Freehold

Shefford House forms part of a most impressive and substantial period brick and flint country house, set amidst well-tended communal grounds of around 9 acres, with swimming pool and tennis court. The characterful accommodation comprises a spacious reception hall which opens out into the dining area. A most attractive drawing room features an open fire place with stone surround, an original beamed ceiling and fitted bookshelves. A fitted kitchen with bespoke units, electric Aga and French windows opens onto the rear patio and rear communal lawn. There is also a downstairs cloakroom as well as a couple of useful storage cupboards.

On the first floor there are three good double bedrooms and two bathrooms. Of particular note is the striking half landing window and first floor conservatory off the master bedroom.

Goodings Lane lies just outside Woodlands St. Mary, set in glorious countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and surrounded by woodland and farmland. This hamlet is well placed for access to the thriving market towns of both Hungerford and Newbury where all amenities can be found along with rail links to London Paddington. Numerous foot paths and bridleways, the Lambourn Downs and Ridgeway are close by together with the local towns of Lambourn, Wantage, Hungerford and Newbury. Excellent road access via M4 (J14) to London, Reading, Heathrow, the west country and Wales; and the A34 to Oxford and the Midlands and south to Southampton and the coast.

Approached via a sweeping private gravelled drive which is flanked by beautiful grounds and rural land beyond, Shefford House forms part of this substantial and imposing country house. It is enviably situated to enjoy wonderful views from all aspects. The communal acreage includes formal gardens, courtyard, croquet lawn and woodland, with a tennis court discreetly tucked away. Of great benefit in the summer is the outside swimming pool. There is driveway parking plus two garages and additional parking for visitors. All the grounds are maintained by gardeners and the residents have the right to keep a horse.
