About this property

  • The farmhouse is listed for its original cruck frame with some
    interesting period timbers in the oldest part of the house,
    which has since been extended to create a lovely family home.
    The reception rooms are of generous proportions with some beautiful features. The kitchen/breakfast room at the heart of the house is a well-proportioned room with high quality cabinets and a two oven Aga. The sitting/family room lies conveniently off the kitchen and has a spiral wine cellar
    below. On the first floor is a comfortable principal bedroom
    suite, four further bedrooms and two further bathrooms. The cottages are semidetached with a shared entrance therefore giving scope to convert to one larger house if required. They are currently let out, but would be ideal for a number of uses including additional guest accommodation, granny annexe, or offices.
    Magpie Farm is approached from the lane via a drive
    through Yattendon Estate land to a driveway and parking by
    the farmhouse and cottages. The setting is wonderfully private and surrounded by beautiful tended estate land with some mature trees and woodland. The gardens are laid mainly to lawn interspersed with mature hedges, trees and shrubs. The Tithe barn is a wonderful space and has been used for entertaining and large parties, behind which is a swimming pool.

I love the way these buildings form a courtyard - would be ideal for multi generation living!
