The Huts is an individual period property, in a stunning location directly on the River Kennet. Historically the building was a tea room for the operators of the barges carrying their cargoes up and down the canal networks, and the current owners have taken the original building and restored it with care and attention into a stunning and stylish home. From an unassuming front aspect, the property opens out into a spacious and versatile home, with the large, inviting kitchen/dining/family room with woodburning stove at the heart of the accommodation.

The master bedroom suite with vaulted ceiling has a stunning aspect with double doors opening onto the garden and affording views of the river and the gardens. 3 further bedrooms and 3 bath/shower rooms all superbly appointed. The layout of the house offers potential for separate accommodation if desired, with one bedroom benefitting from its own entrance from the front.

Outside, the lawns sweep directly down to the river and the property benefits from fishing rights. A large terrace makes the most of the sunny Southerly aspect and the gardens are very private, edged with mature shrubs and trees. There is parking for multiple vehicles in the private driveway, and access to the property is down a drive sharing access with one property next door.
