Berkshire Life - - Home Of The Month - WORDS: Jan Ray­croft

This pic­turesque cor­ner of Hurst is within easy reach of Twyford sta­tion for those seek­ing a fam­ily home

with oo­dles of his­tory and pe­riod fea­tures

Here we have Whist­ley Green Cot­tage, a sub­stan­tial 17th cen­tury prop­erty with views over open fields.


Ex­posed walls, ceil­ing tim­bers flag­stones and large open fire­places set the scene here, al­though the house has been ex­tended over the years and in­cludes lots of mod­ern com­forts.

For in­stance, there’s an airy Amdega con­ser­va­tory and the kitchen has Sile­stone work sur­faces and built-in ap­pli­ances, in­clud­ing a Fal­con cooker.

The din­ing room, kitchen/ break­fast room and util­ity area ben­e­fit from un­der­floor heat­ing and up­stairs the cen­tral bed­room has a vaulted ceil­ing and ac­cess to a jack-and-jill style bath­room.
