Introduction

Occupying an enviable elevated position overlooking its delightful mature gardens in excess of one acre is this substantial family residence in the popular village of Sherfield English.

Tucked away on a private lane in the former grounds of Melchet Court, the property enjoys a high degree of privacy, screened by mature trees and hedgerow but without interruption of the stunning views.
