The AreaAshford Hill
Almost equidistant between Newbury & Basingstoke, Ashford Hill offers perfect village living. Set under the Berkshire & Hampshire Downs and next to the Ashford Hill Nature Reserve, it’s an ideal spot with inexhaustible options for lovers of the outdoors. Newbury, with its large open market square and famous castle ruins, is a bustling market town which is suffused in history. But what you might not know is that Newbury is stoked by some great independent shopping, a sparkling array of dining options and a thriving café culture.
Whitehall House, Ashford HillAbout this home
Approached by a private drive, Whitehall House is a period, un-listed magnificent house of over 5,100 sq. ft. The current owners bought the property in 1986 and it has been a fine family home for them over the following years. The accommodation throughout is generous and the numerous reception rooms allow a real flexibility. The vendors have found that it is an excellent house for entertaining. The large kitchen / breakfast room is very much the heart of the property with an Aga and French Windows leading onto the terrace and garden beyond. Everything here is about scale, and the beautiful gardens to the front and rear of the property are no different. They are mostly laid to lawn and planted with specimen trees and herbaceous borders.
There is a separate one bedroom cottage in the stable courtyard. In addition there is an enclosed outdoor pool. There is stabling with 10 loose boxes as well as hay stores, tack room and garaging. The land is divided into manageable sized paddocks which have water supplied to them. The yard and the land are currently rented out by a separate tenancy which could be continued if desired. The property is on the edge of the village of Ashford Hill, with views of its church, and the popular Kennet-side town of Newbury is seven miles away. The very famous Highclere Castle which is better known as Downton Abbey is within easy distance, as is the Sandham Memorial chapel at Burghclere. The location of the property is also well placed for Reading, Oxford and London.
