Show details





Magpie Farm forms a charming courtyard of a Grade II listed farmhouse, it’s cottages, and a beautiful period Tithe barn surrounded by lovely rural countryside on the edge of the hamlet of Frilsham.

The farmhouse is listed for its original cruck frame with some interesting period timbers in the oldest part of the house, which has since been extended to create a lovely family home. The reception rooms are of generous proportions with some beautiful features.

The kitchen/breakfast room at the heart of the house is a well-proportioned room with high quality cabinets and a 2 oven Aga. The sitting/family room lies conveniently off the kitchen and has a spiral wine cellar below.

On the first floor is a comfortable principal bedroom suite, 4 further bedrooms and 2 further bathrooms.

The cottages are attached and have a shared entrance, therefore giving scope to convert to one larger house if prefered. They have historically been let out, but would be ideal for a number of uses including additional guest accommodation, granny annexe, or home office.

Magpie Farm is approached from the lane via a drive through Yattendon Estate to a driveway and parking by the farmhouse and cottages. The setting is wonderfully private and surrounded by well tended estate land with mature trees and woodland. Set in gardens and grounds of approximately 1.3acres.

The gardens are laid to lawn interspersed with mature hedges, trees and shrubs. The Tithe barn is a wonderful space and has been used for entertaining and parties, behind which is a swimming pool.

There are grazing paddocks available which have previously been rented by the current vendors.

Along the valley of the Pang lies Frilsham, a small West Berkshire hamlet surrounded by woods and meadows. Frilsham is in the North Wessex Downs
Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a unique and spectacular landscape that includes tranquil open downland, ancient woodland and chalk streams in the centre of southern England. Many local amenities for Frilsham residents (school, village shop, hairdressers, garage and cafe) are provided at the neighbouring village of Yattendon, which is just a mile away.
