Secluded and large property set in just under two acres of land surrounded by woodland. Excellent accommodation is arranged over two floors, with scope for updating.


Silver Trees is a hidden gem tucked away up a long drive through ancient woodland (which is not part of the property). The setting is secluded and tranquil and yet is within easy reach of the centre of Hermitage and a convenient drive into Newbury town. The property was constructed in the 1950s, it has spacious accommodation (in excess of 3000 sq\?) arranged over two floors which would benefit from some updating. Versatile accommodation is provided, depending on how many bedrooms and reception rooms would be required. The ground floor comprises a large light L-shaped sitting room plus adjoining study and a family room which leads into the kitchen/breakfast room. There is further ground floor accommodation which includes a guest suite with its own bathroom and sitting room. The first floor offers 4 bedrooms, the master bedroom having an en suite, and a family bathroom. A spacious loft room provides further scope to provide bedroom accommodation (it provided bedrooms for two of the current owners\? four children when they lived here) it has a wash area with hot and cold running water and a sink, it is also fitted with central heating. All the principal rooms on the ground floor have large windows and are arranged in order to enjoy the wonderful views over the gardens / woodland beyond.

Silver Trees benefits from its own long driveway which is flanked by woodland which opens out into gardens. A truly beautiful approach, with parking in front of the house for a number of cars.
