Church Lane, Ufton Nervet
The Old Rectory is a magnificent Grade II listed, attached Queen Anne house dating from the early 18th Century. Approached over a gravelled drive and surrounded by mature yew tree hedging, there is a glimpse of the church spire beyond, and the handsome façade of The Old Rectory sits prominently. This is a quint essentially attractive village house of excellent proportions.
The Drawing Room is simply magnificent with high ceilings, an attractive fireplace, original window shutters and an alcove at one end. The Dining Room is similarly impressive - these are fine examples ofQueen Anne reception rooms that are unspoilt, but in excellent condition. There is a large farmhouse style kitchen, complete with AGA, with views out over the beautiful garden to the rear. The five bedrooms are all beautifully presented, with a highlight being the master bedroom with alluring views through the original sash windows to the church beyond. The Old Rectory is a superb family house.
Located in West Berkshire, the Berkshire Downs are within close proximity as is the Kennet Canal and the River Thames, offering a wide variety of scenic walks and the potential for water sports. Ufton Nervet is a rural village but it is not isolated. 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 local pubs.
Newbury, Reading and Oxford are all within striking distance and the property is also well positioned for the M4, with Junction 12 only 4 miles away. Crossrail, which is due to be completed soon, will provide a fast connection from Reading to TheCity. There is a wide choice of excellent schooling, both state (including the village primary school) and private.
