The Property

Home of Aldermaston Pottery for more than 40 years, the property has now been beautifully and sensitively restored by its current owners to create a striking home with a modern twist and retains many of the period features you would expect such as exposed brickwork and timbers and original flooring.

This fine conversion is thoughtfully laid out and a spectacular vaulted oak framed extension comprising a kitchen / breakfast room and dining room complements the more traditional feel of the original Pottery.

Upstairs are two bedroom suites, a third bedroom and family shower room.

A ladder provides access to a mezzanine which is currently used as a bedroom but could equally be used as a study.


The property is approached via a shared gravel drive to a parking and turning area and access to two garden sheds.

To the rear of the property is a beautifully landscaped garden comprising of lawned areas, well stocked borders, wisteria covered pergola and courtyard garden.

Leading from the kitchen and dining room is a private west facing terrace with views overlooking the garden and farmland beyond.

The Location

The Pottery is situated in the centre of Aldermaston which lies midway between Newbury and Reading.

This pretty village is mainly comprised of period houses and has a village shop, church, village hall, hairdressers, pub, two primary schools and a mainline railway station.

There is good access to Reading, Newbury and Basingstoke and excellent communications to London and the rest of the country by road via the M4, M3 and A34, and by rail via Theale, Reading, Newbury and Basingstoke stations.

There is also a good range of both private and state schools in the area.
