Pottery Lane, Inkpen, Hungerford, Berkshire, RG17
A delightful and beautifully presented detached period cottage which offers generous accommodation over two floors. The property boasts an abundance of character features including fireplaces, exposed beams and wooden floors in part. The entrance vestibule leads into an inviting and welcoming reception hall which features an inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove. To the right is a sitting room, again with an inglenook and woodburner; this is a delightfully cosy room in the winter and leads into the study which has a fitted desk, shelving and window seat. The family/dining room extends some 19' or so in length and has double doors out to the rear garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is a cream country-style kitchen with ample space for family dining and a utility room leading off it.
The first floor offers four double bedrooms, all with delightful aspects and much character, and a family bathroom and an ensuite.
Situated in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the local area is highly regarded for its stunning countryside which is excellent for riding and walking. There are two local public houses; The Swan Inn and the Crown and Garter, the latter being known locally as an excellent gastro-pub. Further amenities and the Kennet & Avon Canal can be found locally at Kintbury or more extensive facilities in both Hungerford and Newbury, all with train stations offering services to London Paddington and the West Country. Inkpen has a village primary school (with pre-school) and the area boasts an excellent selection of private schools including Brockhurst & Marlston House, Horris Hill, Thorngrove, Cheam, St Gabriels, Downe House, Marlborough and Elstree. Junctions 14 and 13 of the M4 are about 9 and 10 miles away respectively and the A34 (Stockcross) is just over 6 miles away. Together they provide excellent trunk road access to the north, south, east and west.
The cottage is approached off a quiet lane by a gravelled driveway which opens into a gravelled parking area for a number of vehicles and with a detached double garage to the right. There is a good expanse of lawn both to the front of the driveway and at the rear of the property. A generous paved terrace provides the perfect dining and entertaining spot to the rear. The garden is bordered by some mature shrubbery and fencing which provides a good degree of seclusion. There is also a useful timber shed.
