This detached house stands in an elevated a very private setting nestled amongst 16 acres of privately owned woodland at the end of a beautiful country lane close to the village of Stoke Row. On the market for the first time in nearly 50 years, the house, which was built in the 1960s, has spacious accommodation arranged over two floors. The house retains some original striking features which evoke a pleasingly retro feel, particularly in the living room with exposed brick walls and a corner fireplace. The house is nicely presented but of course, we feel will now benefit from some updating. There is huge potential to remodel the house and the grounds are an incredible backdrop to the serene setting.
Outside, the gardens are beautiful and surround the house. A sweeping carriage driveway draws up to the house with a generous parking area to the side and a second access point to the lane. Mainly laid to lawn, the grounds are interspersed with a wonderful array of specimen trees and planting. The grounds beyond are stunning beech woodland which has a carpet of bluebells in the spring and provides a haven for flora, fauna, and wildlife. Syde has approximately 16 acres of grounds in total.
Newnham Hill, is a wonderful setting with the village of Stoke Row just a short walk away. Stoke Row has a wonderful community with an independent village shop and coffee shop, a local pub, The Cherry Tree Inn.
There is a very highly regarded local school, and a vibrant village hall and recreation ground with fitness, tennis cricket, and cycling clubs among its activities. The renowned restaurant The Crooked Billet is also in the village. Beyond Stoke Row is Witheridge Hill and Nettlebed, with the Cheese Shed another popular destination for a coffee and cheese toastie.
The immediate area has wonderful walking and riding on footpaths and bridlepaths. The large centres of Henley on Thames and Reading are easily accessible with rail links to central London including the newly opened Elizabeth Line.
