About this property

  • Brewers Cottage was built, it is believed, in the early 1800s as the village bakery and then operated as a public house until it was converted to a private house. The property has been extensively refurbished and extended by the current owners and provides flexible family accommodation which is beautifully presented and takes full advantage of the setting overlooking countryside to the rear.

    The renovation was done to a very high standard whilst retaining the feel of a period home. The kitchen/breakfast room opens up onto the garden terrace with bi-fold doors and has a range of floor and wall units by Neptune and integrated appliances. The open plan dining area off the kitchen also opens to the terrace making the whole area spacious and sociable and very much the heart of the home. There is a charming sitting room with wood burning stove, a family room, an office and a study with doors to the garden, perfect for working from home. The basement has been converted into a lovely TV room with a window for natural light.

    To the first floor the principal bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, built-in wardrobes and a generous en suite bathroom with shower and two basins. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom with shower. The fifth bedroom with en suite shower is on the ground floor and has direct access to the rear garden. All the bathrooms are well-appointed and supplied by Steepals of Henley.

    The property is approached from the road via a block paved drive with high brick walls to either side. There is a large parking area and a 3 bay open oak barn style garage with accommodation above and a single brick built garage with tiled roof, currently used as a store. The gardens to the rear of the property have been beautifully landscaped and provide charming areas of terrace accessed from the kitchen and dining area and seating for outside entertaining including an outdoor kitchen with a Beefeater stainless steel BBQ. The garden is laid mainly to lawn and interspersed with mature trees, shrubs and flower beds, giving the perfect setting to enjoy the far reaching views over surrounding countryside.
