A beautiful and recently extended cottage situated in an idyllic rural position, yet close to Pangbourne

About this house

Formerly an estate cottage owned by the Yattendon Estate, Butlers Cottage occupies an idyllic rural position, yet close to Pangbourne. The property has been significantly extended and improved by the current owners, who have created a wonderful family home that is awash with light and impeccably presented throughout. Highlights include the large open plan kitchen which is beautifully appointed and includes an electric AGA and a north facing walk in larder. The drawing room connects to an attractive orangery which leads out onto a terrace and the south facing garden. This room makes for an impressive, relaxing and light filled reception room of excellent proportions - a wonderful contrast to the adjoining sitting room with log burner and bookshelves which create a cosy tucked away retreat within the house. The master bedroom suite is superb and includes a stunning and well-appointed master bathroom, a dressing room and sizable bedroom with views over the garden and paddocks beyond.

The large south facing garden is bordered on two sides by neighbouring paddock land and includes a large garden store, which has electricity and is currently used as a children’s playroom and an adjoining home office. Additionally, there is a brick built garden store at the bottom of the garden.

Butlers Cottage is a stylish home in a tranquil rural position that is not remote. It is ideally placed for commuting to London and St. Andrew’s Prep School which is within walking distance to the property.

our thoughts on Buckhold

Buckhold is a hamlet within close proximity to Pangbourne. Pangbourne is a highly sought after and bustling Thames side village with a number of shops, café’s and restaurants as well as the railway station which makes this picturesque Berkshire village ever popular for those wishing to commute to London or anywhere within the Thames Valley. Positioned within the North Wessex AONB, Buckhold sits on the edge of the Berkshire Downs and close to the River Thames making this an idyllic spot with inexhaustible options for lovers of the outdoors. The whole area has a fabulous rural feel yet there is a vibrancy to the area that is evident in the wide variety of excellent pubs.

Newbury, Reading and Oxford are all within striking distance and the property is also well positioned for the M4, with Junction 13 only 5 miles away. Crossrail, which is due to be completed soon, will provide a fast connection from Reading to The City. There is a wide choice of excellent schooling, both state and private.
