Holborn House is an 'avant-garde' house designed by a local architect in the 1970s and enjoys what must arguable be, one of the finest and most desirable settings in this historic and beautiful village.

The house sits near the crest of Holborn Hill looking south towards The Downs and The Ridgeway across an area known as 'The Warren'.

The outlook from almost all rooms is a "million dollar" vista that is very rare indeed even in this gorgeous corner of our fair land. As calm and tranquil a setting as one could hope to find anywhere hereabouts. The fact that Letcombe Bassett is not "on the way" to anywhere means that motor traffic is unusually light.

Letcombe Bassett is one of those rare havens of tranquility where pins are regularly heard to drop!

The house makes particularly good use of this special location with almost every room looking south and benefitting from the blissful rural scene.

The plot amounts to circa 0.34 of an acre in all with the gardens on many levels, each with another breath taking view. There is a second vehicular access point with field gate at the western, upper end of the garden.

The accommodation amounts to approximately 1949 sq ft gross internal and includes a very fine drawing room/living room on the upper floor together with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

On the ground floor there is a generous hall, a fine 23ft kitchen/dining room complete with oil fired AGA, cloakroom, utility room, study/bedroom 5.

A door from the hall leads directly into the double garage, which has two up and over doors from the driveway and parking area at the front.

Letcombe Bassett really is a unique and charming village community. Nestled at the foot of The Downs, just a few miles south west of the market town of Wantage. Jonathan Swift stayed at the Old rectory and Arabella's cottage is featured in Hardy's Jude the Obscure. Better still, three Grand National Winners were trained in the village by Capt Tim Forster.

A fascinating insight into the village can be gained by Googling, "Shall Letcombe Bassett Die?" and this will bring up a short 1948 Pathe News film telling the tale of how 'the powers that be' threatened to close down the village not long after the second world war. One gent in the film still lives in the village to this day.

From Wantage take the B4507 towards Ashbury and after about 2.5 miles turn left at the Childrey Holloway crossroads towards Lambourn and after 0.5 mile keep straight on to Letcombe Bassett as the road turns right to Lambourn. On entering the village, Holborn House is the first property on your left at the top of the hill.
