Outside, the principal lawn lies mainly to the south. A beautiful stone terrace sits off the back of the property and the view from here leads down to the swimming pool and pool house; to the west lies a beautiful landscaped knot garden. 400 acres of woodland and country walks on the Harwick Estate lie beyond the boundary of the land, which comes to 2.7 acres.
The Baulk is situated on Goring Heath between the Berkshire Downs and the Chiltern Hills. Goring and Pangbourne are both nearby for local facilities, and Henley-on Thames and Reading are nine miles and six miles respectively.
The guide price is £3.5m. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01189 845 757 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
