Fairfield Cottage is a detached former coach house that has been extended and modernised by the current owners to great effect creating an inviting and elegantly presented family home. Entering the house, the principle reception areas of the house are arranged off a generous reception hall as too are the stairs to the first floor. The formal sitting room is a wonderful room with high ceilings and natural light flooding in from the windows on either side. An open fireplace housing a log burner provides an inviting focal point and a set of glazed doors open onto a terrace with the gardens beyond. At the heart of this house lies the fabulous kitchen/dining room. An island unit with an oak counter top has an integrated hob with an extraction hood above and also provides for casual dining. Beneath the two kitchen windows, are hand painted store cupboards with integrated appliances beneath a composite counter top and a fridge freezer and double ovens are also integrated. In the dining area, byfolding doors provide access to the delightful patio and gardens beyond. Underfloor heating runs throughout the kitchen and into the utility room which is conveniently positioned off the kitchen as too are the home study, and family room, all of which make the house feel extremely well connected and practical. The five bedrooms are arranged off a central landing and the careful attention to detail and interior design continues. The master bedroom with a vaulted ceiling is striking and a half wall creates a division between the bedroom and dressing area where there are built in wardrobes and an ensuite shower room. The guest room has a recently refurbished ensuite shower room and the three remaining bedrooms are served by a family bathroom.
Located on a popular road in the Thames-side village of Wargrave, the house is within walking distance of convenience stores and a pharmacy. The village centre is nearby with its shops for day to day needs, restaurants, library and antique shops. Further amenities are available in the bustling market town of Henley-on-Thames and both Reading and Maidenhead are accessible by road and rail. The station in Wargrave provides a local service that connects through to Twyford and on to the mainline in Reading (where Crossrail will be available in 2018) and direct to London Paddington. The M4 & M40 Motorways are easily accessible. There is an excellent choice of schools within the area, both state and independent. The Piggott Senior School is nearby and Reading Bluecoats in Sonning and Queen Anne’s in Caversham together with Piggott Infant and Juniors within the village.
At the front of the house, a five bar gate opens onto the gravel driveway leading to a double garage. There is an attractive lawn front garden with a path leading to the front door flanked by lavender beds. The rear south facing landscaped gardens are delightful and have been designed with the needs of a family in mind providing dining terraces and a lawn garden ideal for children’s games. Around the edges of the terraces, are well stocked mature flower beds, which include various fruit trees and a mature Wisteria climbs across the rear of the property.
