Believed to date from the early 19th Century and Listed Grade II of Special Architectural or Historic Interest, Elmet House occupies an elevated position near the centre of the village and has views to the north across the Kennet Valley.Typical of this era of domestic architecture, the house has well-proportioned rooms with good natural light. The current owners have undergone extensive sympathetic renovations and upgrading, including re-fitting the new kitchen and bathrooms, and the property was completely rewired and re-plumbed in 2018. The stunning kitchen is fitted with bespoke cabinetry and a smart Falcon range cooker, and the drawing room and sitting room both have attractive open fireplaces. In addition to the principal accommodation in the house there is a separate one bedroom cottage, as well as workshops and a garage block. The house stands in the centre of its partly walled gardens and a south-facing terrace adjoins the rear of the house, beside which is a sheltered dining area. Accessed through electric gates, the property is approached across a private gravel drive leading to a large turning circle and parking area in front of the house. The beautiful gardens are mainly laid to lawn, surrounded by mature borders interspersed with a wide variety of shrubs and trees. Steps lead up from the terrace to the lawns where mature hedges divide the garden into separate areas, giving a sense of immense peace and privacy. To the west of the garden is the heated swimming pool, and to the south of the house is a wide paved terrace as well as an additional area under a pergola clad with climbing plants, ideal for entertaining or relaxing.Elmet House lies within the village of Brimpton. The small village of Brimpton is set in a rural location between the popular Berkshire towns of Reading and Newbury. The village has a local pub and a primary School, while the nearby villages of Aldermaston and Woolhampton provide further everyday amenities, including local shops, pubs and a train station. Newbury offers a wider selection of amenities and leisure facilities, and there is an excellent choice of schools in the area, including Elstree, Cheam, Horris Hill, Bradfield College and Downe House. The area is well connected by road, with the A339 and A4 linking with the M3 and M4, providing fast access to London, Heathrow Airport, and the West Country. There are excellent train services from Midgham station direct to London Paddington taking from 51 minutes, or from Basingstoke to London Waterloo in under an hour.
