Paradise Cottage is believed to date back to the 16th century and has many exposed wall and ceiling timbers and open fireplaces – there is a particularly lovely Inglenook fireplace in the dining room. There are also original wood floors in some rooms, all of which are remarkably well-proportioned considering the period of the house.
Paradise Cottage has an entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, study, kitchen/breakfast room and four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a double garage.
Outside the gardens surround the property and have been well landscaped. To the front is a well-tended lawn with a stream running through it, the banks of which have been planted with spring bulbs. To the rear of the property is a further lawn with a herbaceous border up to the house and further back is an orchard with a variety of fruit trees; all in all the property stands in just under an acre.
The Cottage is situated just four miles from Theale in Berkshire, which provides a wide range of amenities including a train service to London Paddington within the hour, and Newbury is just eight miles distant.
The guide price is £750,000; for further information contact Strutt and Parker on 0118 9845757 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
