Old Peppard Farmhouse is a family home with Georgian origins set in delightful gardens on Peppard Common. Much of the original Georgian character is evident throughout the property with particular note to the two reception rooms located either side of the entrance hall. The drawing room features an open fireplace, large, double aspect windows with original shutters and a window seat, with views over the common and front garden. The sitting room has similar features and in addition there is a log burner set within the fireplace. Views in this room are over the front and rear garden. Along the entrance hall, which leads to the kitchen, is the entrance to the cellar and there is an inner reception hall. The kitchen, as one might expect; is the heart of this farmhouse with family dining at its centre. Elm kitchen cupboards provide essential storage and an Aga fits snuggly into the old fireplace. A playroom and cloakroom are located just off the kitchen and there are two lobbies where coats and boots can be stored as well as providing access to the garden and the drive where the garage is located. The stairs from the entrance hall lead to the first floor landing where three of the five bedrooms are found. The master bedroom, with an en-suite shower room and the guest bedroom, sit above the two reception rooms. Both bedrooms enjoy views of the gardens and common. Bedroom three also features an en-suite shower room. A further two bedrooms are on the second floor and are served by a family bathroom which also has a separate shower.
Old Peppard Farmhouse is located on Peppard Common, a charming Chiltern village 4.5 miles from Henley. The village has a popular public house, a well-supported primary school, tennis club and golf course. The area abounds with independent and public schools, to name a few, The Abbey, Queen Anne’s, Moulsford, The Oratory, St Helens and St Katherine’s in Abingdon. There is a bus stop in the layby close to the property for the Abingdon schools. Country pursuits are central to the appeal of the Chilterns and indeed the surrounding villages, lovely public houses and restaurants can be accessed by local footpaths and bridleways. Henley-on-Thames provides a wider range of day to day amenities and seasonal activities. Commuter links are excellent, with Reading being close at hand providing a mainline rail service into London Paddington in approximately 30 minutes. With Cross Rail from Reading from 2019, this will further enhance the links with direct trains to London.
The gardens are delightful and further evidence of the property’s former life can be found such as the old granary set on staddle stones and a well that at one time might have served the house and farm. There is an attractive garden at the front of the house and the rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature flower beds along its borders. There is a patio which provides a delightful position to dine and look across the garden. There is also a timber double garage and a gardener’s privy.
