Country houses for sale

Grade II listed period property in Berkshire for sale

Yew Tree Cottage is a wonderful four-bedroom listed country property just eight miles from Reading. The house is clad in rose and wisteria and dates back to the 17th century with an oak timber frame and brick elevations beneath a thatched roof – most likely the result of two weaver’s cottages which were combined.

The house now makes a first-class family home with many period details including exposed timber beams and framing, and inglenook fireplaces.

The ground floor includes a large drawing room with a fireplace and adjoining dining room, both of which have panoramic views over the adjoining farmland, and a cosy sitting room and separate study. The principal bedroom upstairs has its own bathroom, and the

three remaining bedrooms share the family bathroom upstairs.

The attractive gardens lie mainly to the south and east of the cottage and comprise areas of well-maintained lawns surrounded by deep flower beds. The garden also has a pretty pond surrounded by mature trees including yew and apple trees.

The house is situated within Padworth Common on the Hampshire/Berkshire border. The Common is a rural community which has a pub and further amenities like a doctor, dentist and local schools are to be found in the nearby village of Mortimer. Reading is eight miles and Basingstoke eleven miles.

The guide price is £850,000. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01256 350600 or visit
