House in castle’s grounds enjoys a fairytale location

House in castle’s grounds enjoys a fairytale location

THE Coach House is a special place, not least because it is situated within the grounds of Wallingford Castle.

To make its location even more dreamy, there is a gate at the bottom of the garden that opens on to a path that meanders through lush green parkland down to the River Thames.

A charming four-bedroom family home, The Coach House is just a short walk away from Wallingford town centre and is on the market with Savills at a guide price of £1,650,000.

To enter the property, you must pass through the old castle gates and a walled garden, where there is a lovely big lawn, a shaded patio, and an outdoor swimming pool featuring a vine-covered pergola.

The front porch takes you into a dining hall and then along a passageway to the kitchen and three other reception rooms.

The large country kitchen has a breakfast bar and space for a dining table and chairs.

The drawing room has a fireplace and a wall of glass doors that open on to a wide, south-facing conservatory, which is also accessible from the cosy sitting room.

The first floor has four bedrooms and a family bathroom. One bedroom has an en suite bathroom and another has a small room off to one side that could be a nursery or perhaps a dressing room or study.

There is access to a large area of handy storage space in the loft, and outside there is a separate annexe office building and a garage with a workshop on one side.

The annexe office building has a wooden floor, rough white-painted stone walls and exposed timber beams. There is also a decorative stained-glass window up near the ceiling, to remind you of your castle-side location.

Wallingford Castle itself has a long and interesting history, but it fell into disrepair from the 16th century onwards.

The last remaining sections of wall are now preserved as a Grade I listed monument and the grounds are open to the public.

The opportunity to live in the grounds of an actual castle does not arise very often.
