Cold Ash Hill, Cold Ash, Thatcham, Berkshire, RG18
Buddleia is a most delightful detached period property enviably located at the end of a quiet drive, tucked away off Cold Ash Hill. The property sits well in its plot surrounded by wonderfully mature gardens and a generous gravelled parking area to the front.
Excellent accommodation is arranged over two floors, with the ground floor offering a sitting room with lovely bay window and fireplace, dining room, study, a good sized kitchen featuring an Aga and with adjoining store room. In addition, there is a utility room, WC, and a useful workshop.
The first floor is also well proportioned and consists of a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, plus three further double bedrooms which are served by the family bathroom.
Decoration is neutral and this represents a wonderful well proportioned family home with a welcoming feel about it, but which would benefit from some updating.
The village of Cold Ash is home to many professional families, many of whom commute during the week and like to enjoy the outstanding village life on the weekends. Walking and cycling are popular into the fine villages and woodlands to the North and East. The village boasts two public houses and a village shop/post office. There are numerous sporting facilities including a thriving tennis club, a recreational ground and a kindergarten. Nearby Newbury has an abundance of good restaurants, shopping and recreational activities. Local schools are excellent; there are two church primary schools in the village and a choice of secondary schools in Newbury and Thatcham such as the Kennet and St Bartholomew's. There are also several highly rated independent schools either within Cold Ash or close-by such as Downe House, Brockhurst, Bradfield College and Elstree.
An attractive garden to the front and side of the property is largely laid to lawn with some mature hedging and shrubbery. Immediately in front of the house there is a gravelled parking area for numerous cars. A gate to the side leads into the rear garden which is enclosed by fencing and hedging, again with a good lawned area and flower borders. There is also a paved terrace in front of the summer house which is a good size and could provide a detached home office as it already has electricity installed.
Mains electricity, water and drainage. Gas fired central heating.
