More Summer Houses Articles A luxury, Grade II listed Berkshire home that has recently come on the market features numerous outbuildings including a summer house and garden office, it has been revealed.
The Fishery, which is situated in 5.7 acres of its own land in Caversham, also counts two cottages, a double garage and a studio among its other outbuildings.
Savills, the estate agent selling the property at a guide price of £3,450,000, said the house is thought to have Tudor origins.
"The house was originally connected with Reading Abbey and was once used by monks while catching eels as a food source for the Abbey, hence the name," said the company.
Among the Fishery's other features are hard tennis courts and a swimming pool. The lawn also runs down to an adjoining riverside where there is an inlet from the main stream leading to a private dock with a mooring.
Last week, LBC (London's Biggest Conversation) radio presenter James Max suggested that for homeowners with access to cash, "there has never been a better time to invest in your home".
