Deerhurst Close is a pretty close of only four substantial character properties. The close is entered from a semi-circular in/out entrance with grassed island set back from the highway and the close is surrounded by some very beautiful mature oak trees.
Very easy access just up the road to Junction 12 of the M4 and therefore good access to Heathrow and London. Also easy access to the Sainsbury`s hypermarket and the village of Theale with its excellent selection of specialist shops and station. Within walking distance is the fine Calcot Golf Course with its wonderful grounds, just across from the close are open fields and there is very easy access to some very pretty walks past the old mill and along Holybrook, which is only a short walking distance away. Milbourne House is a substantially constructed modern country house of character, well fitted and has been kept in good order by the present owners, entered by a 5-bar gate with a large brick laid forecourt giving access to the property and vehicular access to the detached double garage.
The property has had top of the range replacement primary double glazed windows throughout with wider than normal insulation gap, and is set in a larger than average plot of 0.182 acre / 0.074 ha, with the rear garden mainly laid to lawn, bounded by high hedging and fences giving seclusion and privacy with one of the ancient oaks which surround Deerhurst Close on the boundary to the rear.
Milbourne House is arguably set within the best position in the close; it occupies a right hand corner and therefore has no passing traffic at all and has complete privacy.
Special Features: Enclosed large primary double glazed entrance porch. * Pretty leaded light windows. * Fully ceramic tiled flooring throughout the whole of the ground floor. * Double aspect sitting room with French doors onto the rear garden and pretty fireplace presently fitted with a coal effect natural gas fuelled fire; this could be an open fire if so desired burning wood or coal. * The study is large, so is the kitchen which directly overlooks the rear gardens. * It should be noted that there is an unusually large laundry room. * Part of the dividing wall between the kitchen and laundry room could be removed to simply extend the kitchen into a kitchen/living room, if desired, still leaving part of the laundry room as a utility room.
* Master bedroom is unusually large with an en suite bathroom overlooking the gardens to the rear * The landing is large with a walk-through access into an excellent 2nd study area. * All the bedrooms will take a double bed easily.
* There is a water softener fitted and recently there has been a replacement gas-fired condensing boiler.
Local Facilities: Deerhurst Close enjoys a peaceful and exclusive location, and yet it is so easy to gain access to Reading centre, the M4 Junction 12 at Theale, the Sainsbury`s hypermarket at Calcot and other excellent shopping facilities in Theale and Pangbourne. Stations giving intercity fast train access to London Paddington at Reading, Theale or Pangbourne. The River Thames is just down the road at Pangbourne and the countryside only a short distance away which is renowned to be of outstanding rural beauty with lots of footpaths and bridle paths.
Just up the road there is the famous Calcot Park Golf Club, and a short walk to the Holybrook meadows, bus route to Reading station, and the property is within the catchment area for the Reading maintained grammar schools.
Schools abound within the area - Theale Green School, St Andrew`s Preparatory School at Buckhold, near Bradfield, Pangbourne College, Bradfield College, Downe House, Queen Anne`s at Caversham, The Abbey School in Reading, The Oratory, Cranford House and Moulsford Preparatory School are all within reasonable driving distance and some of the schools have a bus pick up service.
There is a fine fitness and sports centre at Bradfield which is only 10 minutes driving distance away with a large indoor swimming pool, gymnasium, indoor tennis courts, squash and creche. Also at Bradfield is an equestrian centre.
This is, by anybody`s standards, a proper family house with a square footage normally associated with a 5-bedroom house, but here the builder decided space and light was important and created 4 double bedrooms instead.
SUMMARY OF ACCOMMODATION: Enclosed entrance, large reception hall with hardwood staircase rising to first floor, sitting room with stone constructed open fireplace, large dining room, family/TV room, cloakroom, kitchen/breakfast room with walk-in pantry, large laundry room. First floor: 4 double bedrooms, bathroom en suite to master bedroom, family bathroom, large landing with walk-in entrance to study or child`s bedroom.
Outside: Gated entrance to brick paved forecourt giving vehicular access to the detached double garage block and also access to the side entrance to the rear and side gardens. The front gardens enjoy seclusion, privacy and security by way of high close-boarded fencing and high well-maintained hedges. The rear garden has the same style of boundaries with high hedging on three sides with a beautiful and majestic oak tree, mature apple tree and well-maintained lawns. To the side of the property there is a large paved area for entertaining and barbecues. Just beside the pedestrian entrance is a lock-up garden store and log and implement storage area. A small greenhouse will be found towards the rear at one corner and a wide stone laid patio runs the width of the property, with the gardens enjoying access from the sitting room and the laundry room. Full gas fired central heating.
