About this property

  • The Rookery is believed to date from the 18th century, originally as 2 houses and later converted into one. The house is Grade II listed and has many original features such as sash windows, exposed timbers and wooden floors. The layout of accommodation has been designed to suit the previous owner and would now benefit from some remodeling and modernisation. There are some outstanding rooms, in particular the drawing room and the vaulted sitting room and a charming glass covered terrace. The principal bedroom suite is of generous proportions with further bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor with 2 rooms on the attic floor.


    The Rookery is approached from the road to graveled parking to the side of the house. The enclosed gardens lie to the rear of the property and are laid mainly to lawn with some ornamental trees and shrubs, and slope gently down to the bank of the River Enborne. From the vaulted sitting room, doors open on to a sheltered terrace with a swimming pool.

I love the character in this house, whilst there is undoubtedly work to do, it has a wonderful feel to it and has clearly been a much loved home.
