Stunning apartment with outstanding views, private garden and planning permission to extend
Lower Thurle, a stunning single storey property, occupies a particularly advantageous private position, to the right-hand rear of the main house, with the added benefit of the elegant features and proportions of this fine building, notably the high ceilings, wood panelling to the grand drawing room and a fireplace, leaded and architecturally imposing windows, and a walk-in curved bay window in the principal bedroom.
This elegant property affords well-appointed striking 3 bedroom, 2 reception, 1 bath, 1 shower accommodation of approximately 1,600 sq ft, boasting a private ambience not often found with such distinguished properties. A great wealth of space and imposing accommodation reminiscent of the original manor house will be found, as will the awe-inspiring views across the stunning communal grounds and beyond to The Berkshire Downlands.
Planning permission was granted in September 2018 to both adapt and extend the existing property to form a larger 5 bedroom property which would extend to approximately 2,690 sq ft, affording most stunning and creative accommodation which strikes a pleasing tone between the very best of modern & contemporary living whilst harnessing the very best of all that is great about elegant Edwardian manor houses. Plans can be found within the brochure, however if further detail is sought, please do visit The West Berkshire District Council planning portal, quoting reference: 18/01785/FUL.
Incorporating numerous attractive features throughout in such a delightful setting, early viewing is advised.
The initially communal professionally landscaped and beautifully laid out gardens and grounds provide for an impressive approach to the property, deriving great benefit from the mature and private setting. Initially accessed through tall brick pillars with wrought iron gates, one continues along the driveway, lined with mature topiaried yew balls, formal hedging and neat lawns.
The property itself is accessed privately through a timber five bar gate, which opens on to its own private gravelled driveway and forecourt, affording ample parking for numerous vehicles.
The private gardens are laid mainly to lawn, with attractively distinctive high hedged boundaries on two side and an attractive walled boundary to the other side, providing for a delightful outlook, as do the wonderful views both back to the manor house and beyond to the open countryside
Delightfully attractive, the gardens and grounds should be viewed to be fully appreciated.
