Inkpen Road, Kintbury, Berkshire, RG17
Midsummer House is a handsome detached, double fronted, four bedroom family home. Set back from the road and with around 2.25 acres of land, the property is secluded, south west facing and conveniently placed in the centre of Kintbury. The house has a contemporary country feel, decorated in a neutral palette throughout, with an abundance of natural light.
The entrance hall gives access to all the principal downstairs rooms including a large living room with fireplace and French double doors to the rear garden. A connecting dining room, again with French doors onto the patio/garden is also situated to the rear of the property. Both the study and kitchen/breakfast room are situated to the front of the house, with the kitchen running all the way to the rear, being a wonderful social space with an excellent fitted kitchen and central island which opens out through doors into the garden, ideal for al-fresco dining in the summer. A utility room and cloakroom/WC complete the downstairs accommodation.
A central staircase leads up to a spacious landing giving rise to the four double bedrooms and bathrooms. The master bedroom has a good range of fitted wardrobes and a large en-suite bathroom. The guest bedroom also has fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room; the two additional bedrooms are served by a jack-and-jill en-suite shower room and the larger family bathroom.
Midsummer House sits within the village of Kintbury, being in a conservation area and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has a good range of facilities including post office/store, butchers, church, school and several pubs. Kintbury sits on the beautiful Kennet and Avon Canal and has a train station on the outskirts of the village, with trains to London Paddington taking approximately 1 hour. The location enjoys beautiful surrounding countryside offering a wealth of footpaths and bridleways.
