The Old Manor is a fine Grade II Listed former manor house, set in a sought-after rural location within easy reach of Theale, Reading and the M4. Dating originally from 1685 with later additions, the property displays a variety of outstanding original features, including exposed timber beams to part of the house, as well as modern fittings and elegant décor throughout. Solid oak double entrance doors lead to a thoroughly attractive reception hall, with flagstone flooring and stained glass windows. The ground floor accommodation includes a light and spacious drawing room with a grand fireplace and double doors leading to...the conservatory which overlooks the garden. There is also a formal dining room, a comfortable family room and a practical shower room. The spacious open-plan kitchen and breakfast room present smart shaker-style wooden units, acentral island, an Aga and French doors opening onto the large rear terrace which is ideal for summer entertaining and leisure. Flowing from the kitchen, is a useful neighbouring utility room and a pantry. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a generous principal bedroom with its en suite dressing room and shower room. This could easily be made into a self contained annexe by using the family room as a sitting room for use by the occupant of the annexe. On the first floor there are four bedrooms en suite, two of these also benefitting from their own dressing rooms. The second floor provides two additional rooms, in the eaves of the roof with its timber beams. Both rooms could be used as further bedrooms, as home office space or for storage. The house is approached via a substantial gravel driveway, which winds through the grounds to a parking area at the front of the house, providing parking for a number of vehicles. The gardens surrounding the house are laid to lawn, with areas of wild meadow, and include several splendid features, including boxed hedging, paved terrace areas, an ornamental pond, an orchard and a greenhouse.
