Re-built in 2009 to reflect the style of the Edwardian era, this beautifully presented house has spacious and light accommodation over three floors, designed to fully take advantage of the rural views over farmland to the rear. Double doors from the reception hall open to an impressive double aspect drawing room with high ceilings, a Cotswold stone fireplace, a bay window to the front and double doors opening out to the terrace, swimming pool and rear garden.

On the first floor is the double aspect master bedroom suite, with two walk-in dressing room/wardrobes, French doors onto a balcony and stunning views across the adjoining farmland and the Thames Valley.

The second floor accommodation has two bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom which could be utilised as a guest suite, staff accommodation or for older children.

The drive is edged with granite sets with a deep and well stocked flower bed to the front of the house with box hedging.
