Estate agents Knight Frank say the £1.5m bargain price tag is because the developers behind it recently went bankrupt and the official receivers are now looking for a quick sale.

The entrance hall of the property has been given a beautiful oak finish, with a frame feature window which adds character into the property. A double height ceiling with a galleried landing on the upper floor gives the home a grand, stately feel despite being brand new.

A marble fireplace adorns one of the main greeting rooms, while there is a bespoke oak staircase and underfloor heating.

Beau House can only be reached via the medieval ruins of Donnington Castle, which leads to the country park of Snelsmore Common.

A crisp white coat of paint has been applied to rooms all over the property, as well as an oak finish on doors and other fittings in different rooms. A marble fireplace has also been installed into the property which give it an old-fashioned grand home feel

If the neighbouring golf course was not enough to tempt prospective buyers, the property is finished to an extremely high quality with this simple but effective wooden finish to the dining area for all to enjoy

A huge work surface to prepare meals is the key feature in the large kitchen, which has enough space for another dining table or breakfast bar. The oven and grill are fitted into the furnishings and visible wooden beams have been left on show

The central wing of the property looks out onto stunning grassland. A sofa has been set up on the second floor overlooking the entrance to make the most of the huge glass facade of the property

A clean marble finish has been applied to the bathrooms inside the property. A heated towel rack and power shower are already built into the property so the person who does decide to buy the home will not have to fit their own. Again, exposed wooden beams are a feature in this room

A modern, round bath tub which has a shower head connected to the property sits in the bathroom. Spotlights near the wooden beams have been added to add light to the property

The property itself is a huge 3,792 sq ft of accommodation with a large entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen and breakfast room, study, dining room. A master bedroom with dressing room and ensuite is the centrepiece of the property, and there are also a further four bedrooms and bathrooms.

All the bedrooms in the property have their own balcony in this luxury estate. The rooms are an extremely generous size which makes it perfect for a growing family

In keeping with the theme of the property, exposed wooden beams are a feature in the bedrooms. A vaunted ceiling in this property has given this room a large feel, making it an ideal second bedroom to have for children

If the grand estate was not enough, there is also an outbuilding for two car parking spaces. Above that is a flat, which comes with a kitchen and living area, bedroom and bathroom.   

The property is surrounded by a wealth of wildlife in the heathland and woodland, along with scenic cycle route.

For those looking for a touch of luxury near the property, they will not have to look any further than the Donnington Grove Hotel next door.

The hotel sits on a 500 acre estate and championship golf course, and has its own restaurant and beauty salon. 

Nick Loweth, from Knight Frank, said: ‘It’s a stunning property, it’s contemporary and pretty unusual as it’s made from green oak and it’s never been lived in.

A walk-in wardrobe is perfect for those who may have a few too many items of clothing. Nick Loweth, from Knight Frank, said: ‘It’s a stunning property, it’s contemporary and pretty unusual as it’s made from green oak and it’s never been lived in.’

‘There was a house there before but it was a very basic worker’s cottage. This has been done to a very high spec, it’s got a biomass heating system which is very environmentally-friendly and there’s secondary accommodation with a flat above the garage.

‘Unfortunately the developer went bankrupt so we are selling it for the receivers, which means it’s kind of a bargain basement price.

‘A house like that should be more than £1.5m.

‘It has got some lovely views, it’s up a little track, you drive up past Donnington Castle and it’s surrounded by common land, with a golf course and hotel on one side so it’s very secluded and private but it’s not isolated – you’re only five minutes outside of Newbury.’
