A striking individual character house offering spacious and eminently flexible accommodation enjoying a quiet location in the heart of East Hagbourne village.
Although featuring many of the signature character traits of a Victorian house, the origins of 1 The Croft are believed to be rooted in the 18th century. The house was once one of six village Inns known as The Boot and many reminders of the property’s former life remain such as its high ceilings and useful cellar. The present owners have made many improvements and additions to the house over their long-term ownership extending and updating the property to provide highly versatile family accommodation featuring sash windows of the Victorian period together with a lovely garden room extension which connects to the large garage. A conversion of an attached former public bar has added an impressive vaulted room with small gallery which serves as an additional bedroom or family room. The gardens lie mainly to the front and side of the house are well-stocked principally walled and feature a large steel pergola supporting a mature vine. The property enjoys a corner position on The Croft a Lane off the main street of East Hagbourne.
