An 1840 Tithe map shows the Toll Gate controlling movement at the North end of Reading Road. Now an extensive family home, Old Toll Gate is full of character and stands on a mature plot extending in excess of one third of an acre with views over adjoining farmland and paddocks.
This appealing property has been sympathetically enlarged and yet retains all of the charm of the original building. The interior is decorated to a chic neutral palate to also give a sense of contemporary elegance.
The house also provides plenty of space with four reception rooms and five bedrooms. There is a side aspect study with an extensive range of fitted shelves, a spacious side aspect family room, dining room with an open fireplace and timber wall panelling bringing charm to the room and the largest of the reception rooms is the drawing room that features an open fire place and a small recess snug that would be perfect for a reading area with delightful views over the side garden and Well that stands within the grounds.
Fitted with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted cabinets, the kitchen breakfast room includes a fitted Aga and there is plenty of space for a breakfast table to create a sociable family room. A utility room and cloakroom complement the ground floor accommodation.
The master bedroom overlooks the side garden and features a cast iron fireplace, a part exposed timber wall and a walkway to the dressing room and to the en suite bathroom fitted with a white suite. There are four further bedrooms, all with built in storage cupboards and bedroom four has a connecting door to the master bedroom making it ideal for a small child’s bedroom. The family bathroom is also fitted with a white sanitary ware.
A front gravel drive sweeps down the side of the house providing parking for several vehicles and access to the triple garage. Immediately to the rear of the house is a shingle seating area followed by a large shaped lawn bordered by numerous trees and bushes. Beyond the boundary of this pretty garden are uninterrupted views over the adjoining farmland.
