Cherry Tree House is a charming tile hung countryproperty with far-reaching views across the surrounding countryside. Originally constructed in the mid-1600s, the house features some later additions and improvements ideal for modern family life. The property is well presented throughout, and has traditional sash windows allowing in ample natural light, and features character elements such as exposed timber beams.
The generously-sized open-plan kitchen and dining room has been tastefully renovated, with the kitchen featuring French grey units, sleek white countertops and high-quality integrated appliances, as well as a large central island with breakfast bar. There is plenty of space for dining and glazed double doors open out into the garden. An adjacent utility room and walk-in pantry/store room are useful additions to the ground floor living accommodation. The spacious 25ft drawing room has triple aspect windows allowing a large amount of natural light to flood in.
The adjacent sitting room features exposed timber beams as well as an original brick fireplace with wood-burning stove. On the first floor, two generously-sized bedrooms benefit from well appointed en suite shower rooms featuring high pressure showers, while three further bedrooms are serviced by a contemporary family bathroom. All bedrooms enjoy far-reaching countryside views.
NB. Planning consent was granted in May 2019 for a single story extension to the rear of the property to comprise a large boot room and utility room. Full details can be seen on the West Berkshire Council planning website. Planning application number: 19/00549/HOUSE
The property has a handsome red tile hung exterior, and the house is often described as ’the prettiest in the village’. A gravel driveway to the front of the house provides plenty of space for parking. At the rear of the property a generously-sized lawn is bordered by tall well kept hedging offering a feeling of seclusion and privacy and benefits from being south facing and very sheltered. The garden also features established flower beds and herbaceous borders in addition to a well-maintained, modern swimming pool with air source heating system and recently fitted electric safety cover, and is bordered by a paved surround.
