Character house commended by National Gardens
Published 27/05/14



A CHARACTER property commended for its gardens by the National Gardens Scheme has come on to the market.

Fletchers is one of nearly 50 listed buildings in the unspoilt village of East Hagbourne, and parts of the property are thought to date back to the mid-16th century.

Accommodation includes three good-sized reception rooms, a well-fitted Roundhouse kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, and five good-sized bedrooms, with three attic rooms providing additional bedrooms or play areas.

Throughout the house there is evidence of its architectural history with exposed oak frames, sash and casement windows, some with vertical box shutters, large open fireplaces and original wattle and daub. The garden is an equally important feature of the property and has been laid out as a classic English country garden.

“The gardens of any property are an essential element for framing the house, and this garden offers a most exquisite frame,” says agent Tim Sherston.


Close to the house are formal areas separated by clipped box hedges with a wide flagstone terrace, a lawn with a decorative rill, a parterre garden as well as flower and shrub borders. This gives way to a well-established orchard undersown with daffodils.

There is also a small arched bridge over Hakkas brook which runs through the garden, and the grounds are often open to the public as part of the National Garden Scheme open days. In fact the property is included in several editions of The Yellow Book.

The property also boasts an all-weather tennis court and kitchen garden, as well as an indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi and swim jet accommodated in an oak-framed barn. Folding doors open on to a wooden deck for alfresco dining. There is also a double carport with a “green” roof.

The property is available for a guide price of 1,8m. Contact Jackson-Stops & Staff Goring office on (01491) 871111.
