Light and spacious top floor apartment with glorious views.
The property was once the home of the Iliffe family following their move from Basildon Park. The property was converted approximately 40 years ago in to 14 individual apartments in a unique parkland setting. The village of Yattendon and the surrounding land are still largely owned and managed by Yattendon Estates.
Yattendon Court is entered through oak double doors into a lobby with access to a post room and cloak room. A further set of double doors opens into a grand reception hall of double height, panelled and with a stone fireplace and magnificent staircase to the first floor. 12 Yattendon Court is reached by these stairs and a smaller set of stairs to the second floor - there is also a passenger lift to all floors.
The front door to the apartment opens on to a reception hall with a skylight, which floods the room with light. There are built in cupboards and a built in desk. To the left, there is a sitting and dining room with a window to the south overlooking the gardens and providing an outstanding view. There is a feature fireplace with an electric fire. A further door leads in to the kitchen, fitted with a range of units and with a larder cupboard to the rear.
The bedrooms both benefit from excellent fitted cupboards and wardrobes, the main bedroom having a walk in fitted wardrobe. Both bedrooms have windows to the south.
The reception hall also provides access to the bathroom with shower. There is also a separate utility room.
Outside, Yattendon Court is approached through impressive gated pillars and up a long private driveway through mature parkland to the gravelled parking area.
The grounds are a particular feature of the property and include sweeping lawns with specimen trees, a sunken Italian garden with pond and a loggia. The gardens have great views to the south. There is a garage in a separate block together with a car wash area.
