About this property

  • Drake House is approached from the lane through double 5-bar gates leading to a large gravelled parking area at the rear of the house. This substantial house has a good layout of spacious accommodation. The drawing room in particular has generous proportions and faces south-west over the rural views, as does the principal bedroom suite above. There is a good-sized dining room and study and the breakfast room opens into the kitchen which in turn leads to the utility room with a useful office/hobby room beyond. Apart from the principal bedroom, there are 4 further bedrooms and 2 family bathrooms. The property has been owned by the vendors' family for over 58 years and is now in need of some updating.


    The gardens lie to the rear and side of the house and are laid mainly to lawn, with a number of mature trees including several apple trees. There is a terrace running along the south-west elevation which enjoys superb views over unspoilt farmland. There is a summer house on the south boundary.

This is a lovely house with so much scope and potential - try and drag your eyes away from that lovely view!

Local information

  • Drake House is situated in a very quiet rural setting just outside the village of Mortimer, which lies about 7 miles south of Reading town centre. The village has a good range of amenities including a small supermarket and other shops together with a doctor's surgery, dentist, a primary school, two churches, three pubs and a station. It is the perfect environment for walking and riding with extensive footpaths and bridleways extending into the surrounding countryside as well as other sporting facilities within the village itself. Nearby Wokefield Park Hotel has an 18-hole golf course and a luxury Spa. Reading has excellent and comprehensive services including a mainline station (Paddington), and Junction 11 of the M4 is only 5 miles away. It is particularly well-connected to London and other parts of the country both by public and private transport. There is an excellent choice of schools in the area, both primary and secondary, private and state.
