  • About the property

    This impressive country home comprises a 17th-century farmhouse and outbuildings that have been converted into a super-stylish retreat. An ideal escape to the country, you’ll be surrounded by fields and have a private garden where you can relax and enjoy the views. Inside, there are cosy farmhouse touches including an Aga and an open fireplace, while boutique hotel-style additions include a freestanding copper bath. There’s even a gym, should you wish to keep up with your daily workout. If you can bear to tear yourself away, there are country walks from the door and the house is well located for exploring the towns and villages of The Chilterns.

  • The space

    This cosy country house brims with rustic elegance. Think bare brick walls, exposed ceiling beams and a roaring fire, teamed with a neutral colour palette, with a pop of bold colour every now and then. Plus, there’s an exciting combination of classic and modern furniture and fittings.

    On the ground floor, there’s a large living room with an open fireplace, while the comfortable sofas and armchairs are perfect for getting cosy. There’s a smaller, more formal living room too. With a wood-burning stove and a coffee table with a sunken drinks cabinet, it’s ideal for everything from reading a book in peace with your favourite tipple to hand, to an afternoon snooze.

    Meanwhile, the large farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room is an ideal space for entertaining and socialising. There’s an impressive five-door Aga, plus all the modern conveniences you’d expect including a fridge, freezer, microwave, coffee machine and dishwasher. Gather around the large dining table and enjoy a good meal, good company and chatting about the day’s events.

    Glass doors open to the terrace and garden beyond. Enjoy a leisurely lunch at the BBQ area, relax on a sun lounger or warm up beside the fire pit on a chilly evening. There are stunning views of the surrounding fields and countryside, perfect for totally unwinding.

    There’s also a smart boot room/utility with a Belfast sink, a WC, a washing machine and a tumble dryer, plus plenty of space for a dog bed if you’re bringing a four-legged friend with you.

    Upstairs, there are three king-size bedrooms. The master has an opulent en-suite bathroom with a freestanding copper bath, a large walk-in shower, twin sinks and a WC, plus there’s a dressing area. Of the other two bedrooms, one has an en-suite bathroom with a bath and shower, and the other has an en-suite shower room.

    There is also a family bathroom and an additional WC.

    There are two further bedrooms, a double and a twin, in one of the outbuildings. These bedrooms are decorated in a welcoming, barn style with wood-clad walls and luxurious touches.

    If you’re feeling energetic, there’s also a gym room, as well as table tennis.

    The house also has parking for up to five cars and storage for bicycles.

Local Info

The neighbourhood

The property enjoys a peaceful, rural setting near the small village of Enborne in west Berkshire, close to the historic, market town of Newbury. Newbury is a vibrant town with a fantastic range of independent and high street shops, restaurants, leisure and cultural attractions including the Corn Exchange theatre. You can also spend a day at the races at Newbury Racecourse, visit the ruined medieval Donnington Castle, or head a little further to Highclere Castle, also known as Downton Abbey.

Newbury also has some of the south of England’s most stunning walking and cycling trails, including the tow path of the Kennet & Avon Canal that runs through the town. Or, head to Greenham or Crookham Common, once military bases, that are havens for wildlife-watchers, walkers, runners and cyclists.

The local area is surrounded by rolling countryside and the farmhouse is the ideal base for exploring the Chiltern Hills and the North Wessex Downs.

Getting around

A car is recommended for travelling to the property and ease of getting around. The property is about 1 hour from London by car.
