Dating back to 1678, Swallowfield Park was designed by the well-known architect William Talman (who also designed Chatsworth) and as such is an important historical house. Set in 25 acres of fantastic parkland, the property has now been carefully converted into flats which reflect the character of the building, with interiors designed to suit such a setting.
Arms and ciphers of the original owner still remain on the ceiling of the spectacular oval vestibule and the small red brick bridge over the River Blackwater on the main drive bears the date 1722 and the initial of previous owner Thomas Pitt, great grandfather of William.
Swallowfield Park is located in the village of Swallowfield in Berkshire, five miles south of Reading. The village is just beyond the park’s entrance and there are several first-class golf courses nearby along with a health spa and the market town of Wokingham.
James Puddle, Manager, Hamptons International said ‘Swallowfield is a beautiful estate set within stunning grounds, providing each resident with the opportunity to own their own unique piece of history. For someone looking to ‘get away from it all’ yet with fantastic transport links and close to every amenity, Swallowfield provides the perfect setting.’
There are only three flats still available, two one bedroom flats (for £345,000 and £365,000) and one two bedroom flat for £575,000. For further information, contact Hamptons International on 01993 824546.
