    About this property

    • History
      Records indicate that Shillingford Brewery was once on the land now known as Greenacre. ‘An assumption has been made that the “Master Brewer” lived in that house rather than in the much smaller Vintner's Cottage'. (Shillingford Brewery & Engineering works by Ray Thackrah). The brewery is understood to have been on the site from the early 1700s until 1880s when it became an engineering works, and by 1912 signs of works disappeared. “Shillingford Old Best” is thought to have been taken the short distance down Wharf Road and then by boat on the River Thames to Abingdon, Oxford and London.

      Description
      Dating to the early/mid 1700s, Greenacre is a fine example of Queen Anne/early Georgian architecture with its symmetrical front elevation, central door with flat canopy and twelve pane sashes.

      Built mainly of brick beneath a tiled roof, the property has evolved over the years retaining numerous period features and is Grade II listed.

      The central hallway leads to a sitting room with open fire place, alcoves and shuttered windows. The dining room has exposed wooden floors and a large inglenook fireplace. To the rear of the house the drawing room is dual aspect with a marble surround fireplace and bay window overlooking the gardens.

      The kitchen breakfast room, with four door gas fired Aga, also overlooks gardens to the rear. It leads to the side entrance, a walk in pantry and separate utility room. There is also a downstairs cloakroom and steps from the hall lead down to a basement. On the first floor, there are five bedrooms and two bathrooms. Accessed by two separate stairs are four attic rooms, currently used for storage and offering scope for further bedrooms or study, subject to relevant consents.

      Attached to the house are a series of attractive original outbuildings comprising garaging and stores through which the rear garden is accessed.

      There is off-road parking at the front of the property and private gardens with a sheltered terrace area. Rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with herbaceous borders and two greenhouses.

      Having been in the current family for over fifty years, Greenacre offers a unique opportunity for incoming owners, as the next custodians, to update accommodation and make their mark to be enjoyed by the next generation.
