Thatched Cottage is a delightful seven-bedroom detached property, with more than 4,350 square feet of comfortable, flexible accommodation and extensive gardens with the benefit of planning permission to extend the house to 8,095 square feet. The property is located in the sought-after village of Sonning within easy reach of the stunning rolling countryside of the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The accommodation is finished and presented throughout with a traditional elegance, which showcases the four spacious reception rooms and their attractive features. There is a drawing room, family room, dining room and a study, all of which are well-proportioned rooms which are ideal for entertaining guests, or simply relaxing as a family. The kitchen and breakfast room has a variety of storage units and space for the necessary appliances, while there is also a walk-in pantry.
There are seven bedrooms on the first floor, including the very generous principle room, with an en suite shower room and access to the dressing room with its fitted storage. There is also a family bathroom and a shower room, while three of the bedrooms have washbasins. Two of the bedrooms are connected, which could provide the opportunity to use one of them as a dressing room or office if required.
The property is set in beautifully presented grounds, which include a hard tennis court and a heated outdoor swimming pool. The house is in a very private setting, not visible from the public highway and with its boundaries protected by mature trees. There is a gravel driveway to the front, which opens out into a large parking area and provides access to the double garage. To the rear there is a paved terrace area incorporating the swimming pool and further lawns.
The gardens are characterised by ornate yew and box hedging, and a variety of specimen trees. There are two greenhouses, two lovely paddocks, a natural pond and a small wooded area. Adjoining the gardens, there is a delightful meadow surrounded by mature trees. In all about 7.65 acres.
