Elton House is a classically inspired modern country house with elegant proportions set in
The house has been thoughtfully designed and the principal accommodation emanates off an impressive double-height reception hall. The 36’ drawing room is of particular note for its generous size and delightful views over the watermeadows beyond. The kitchen/breakfast room is of similar proportions boasting bespoke wooden cabinetry and a full sized Aga. The breakfast area has views to the rear across the lawns. In addition, there is a study, library and dining area on the ground floor.
On the first floor there is an impressive principal
bedroom with a generous en suite bathroom
and dressing room, and a south-facing balcony.
There are 2 further bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, and another 2 double bedrooms adjacent to a family bathroom.
The property is approached through electric gates down a sweeping gravel driveway, passing a timber storage barn on the right and culminating in a large gravel turning area with plenty of parking. There is also a secondary driveway useful for trades people and deliveries.
Adjacent to the house is an attractive triple garage with a staircase to a large room above offering potential ancillary accommodation subject to planning permission.
The gardens and grounds are mainly laid to lawn, surrounded by mature trees and hedges, and a gate at the far end of the garden provides direct access onto the Lambourn Valley Way.
There is a wonderful terrace area running the length of the house looking out across the garden and enjoying the far reaching views towards the water meadows.
NB: Planning permission has been granted for an orangery at the back of the house between the drawing room and kitchen.
Interested parties should make their own enquiries of the local planning authority at West Berkshire Council in relation to this planning permission and potential planning above the garage block.
