An exciting opportunity to acquire a substantial Grade II detached double fronted period property which requires complete refurbishment and renovation. Formerly a public house, planning permission has been granted to convert the property to a residential dwelling.
The layout offers a good degree of versatility in terms of how the space would be used, with large open plan spaces on the ground floor which could create fabulous living accommodation, with 5 or 6 bedrooms on the upper floors.
Many character features remain including fireplaces and exposed beams and a combination of wooden and stone flooring. The former kitchen and cellar equipment has been stripped, leaving a shell from which to create a spacious and characterful family home.
Situated in Lambourn Woodlands on the B4000 amidst glorious countryside, this hamlet is well placed for access to the thriving market towns of Hungerford and Newbury where all amenities can be found. A further selection of amenities can be found at nearby Wantage (including Waitrose). More locally, the village of Lambourn nestles in the Valley of the Racehorse and offers excellent amenities including local shopping, a doctor's surgery and leisure facilities as well as numerous paths and bridleways over the surrounding down land.
There is a good range of both state and private schools in the area including prep schools, Cheam, Pinewood at Bourton and St Hugh’s at Faringdon. Senior schools include Downe House, Radley College and St Edwards, Oxford. There is excellent access to the M4, J14 and mainline stations to London from Didcot, Newbury and Swindon (London Paddington approximately 45 mins from Didcot). Heathrow Airport can be reached in approximately one hour by car.
Occupying a corner plot, there is a gravelled area to the front bordered by hedging. To the rear is a garden, partially fenced and laid to lawn with a paved terrace for dining. There is also a sizeable parking area (previously the car park) which could be landscaped in order to increase the size of the garden.
