Snelsmore, Newbury, Berkshire, RG14

Property Description

Lynnwood is a substantial detached period property, the original part reputedly dating back to the 1750's. The property has been extended at various times to create this excellent family home with accommodation arranged over two floors. On entering, there is a spacious welcoming entrance hall, with wooden floor, which gives rise to the principal reception rooms. In addition to the larger more formal drawing room there is a smaller sitting room, which has a jetmaster log burning stove. There is also a separate dining room which leads into both the conservatory and kitchen. A utility room and downstairs WC complete the downstairs accommodation. The staircase from the hallway leads up to the first floor which comprises a master bedroom with en suite bathroom and two further double bedrooms which are served by the family bathroom. All the rooms have windows to the rear of the property from which to enjoy the beautiful far reaching views.
There is a small vestibule (with door to outside) and a second staircase to the western side of the property leading up to a further bedroom on the first floor which has an adjoining bathroom and a further adjoining room which could be an additional bedroom, study or dressing room. This accommodation offers versatility and potentially offers separate access to this end of the house if so desired.

Lynnwood is conveniently located a short distance to the North of Newbury and is understandably popular for its proximity and short drive to the thriving centre of Newbury. The surrounding country is simply stunning, set adjacent Snelsmore Common, with an abundance of country walks but also with the advantage of having it's own woodland acreage. The property is well placed for the A34 and M4 at junction 13 as well as main line rail services from Newbury Station to London Paddington. There is also a wide selection of schools in the surrounding area of Newbury, both primary and secondary sectors and both private and state schools including Elstree, Brockhurst Downe House, Bradfield and Pangbourne.

Lynnwood is approached via a by-way leading to a 5 bar gate giving access to a large gravelled driveway with space to park numerous vehicles. In addition, to the left of the house, is a triple bay detached garage plus good storage area.
The property is set in approximately 11 acres, an acre or so of which is landscaped, with the remainder of the curtilege being woodland, offering a good degree of seclusion. The rear garden is largely laid to lawn interspersed with some mature shrubbery and hedging, and featuring a pond. A substantial timber summer house with decking to the front is set on the edge of the woodland, being a charming quiet retreat. The woodland offers excellent dog walks and nature walks with privacy from which to sit and appreciate the abundance of wildlife.
