The AreaLambourn

Brock House is set in the quiet and rural hamlet of Sheepdrove, just above the village of Lambourn, a picturesque village located within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at the source of the river Lambourn. It is known as the ‘Valley of the Racehorse’ due to its long history of horse racing and breeding and is home to several world-famous trainers and jockeys as well as some of the finest training facilities in the country. The village has a rich cultural and historical background, dating back to Roman times. Aside from horse racing, Lambourn is also popular for outdoor activities, including hiking and cycling. The village is surrounded by beautiful countryside, offering plenty of opportunities for nature lovers to explore. Lambourn has some good local shops, a primary school and doctor’s surgery as well several excellent restaurants and pubs in the area. Schooling in the area is excellent, both state and independent, including Pinewood, The Manor, Elstree, Brockhurst & Marlston, St Helens & St Catherines, Cothill, Radley and Marlborough to name but a few. The market towns of Hungerford, Newbury Marlborough and Wantage are all within easy driving distance, and the large town of Swindon provides extensive facilities. M4 junction 14 is 6 miles away providing excellent links to London and Bath and to further major road networks.

Brock House, SheepdroveAbout this home

Accessed down a private track, you are surrounded by the rolling hills of the Lambourn Downs in a tremendously peaceful and quiet location. Constructed in 2001 the house has four wings with living areas on the ground floor and five bedrooms. There is impressive reception space, and the extensive glazing ensures the owners can really appreciate the stunning views. Sitting high up on the Berkshire Downs the house commands the most wonderful panoramic views the Lambourn valley. Being west facing the sunsets are incredible. The property is one of the highlights of the second series of Grand Designs, this distinctive home is familiar to many. “This really is a friendly house that reaches out into the landscape and the world outside grabs it and brings it indoors. It doesn’t just live in its natural surroundings it lives up to it”. Kevin McCloud. The current vendors undertook a significant program of improving the property, as well extending and adding the gym / garden room and underfloor heating throughout. The heart of this party-style haven lies in its expansive entertainment zones- the spacious and elegantly designed living area, with its fabulous central kitchen with its vaulted ceiling and circular balcony above. The garden wraps around the property with the post & rail fenced paddocks beneath it. There is an immaculate stable block with three loose boxes with a sizeable store and tack room. There is also a further outbuilding. The property has three separate entrances.
