Ashmore Green Road, Ashmore Green, Thatcham, Berkshire, RG18
Little Gables is a beautifully presented and well proportioned detached family house which has been recently renovated with stunning views to the rear. Decorated in neutral tones throughout, the property has a lovely light, airy and spacious feel to it. There are a good number of stripped wood floors with complementary skirting boards, bannisters and doors, together with some characterful beams, giving the house a contemporary and yet rustic feel.
On entering the house there is a generous entrance hall which is partially double-height, therefore accentuating the spacious feel and gives access to the principal reception rooms. The flow of the accommodation is excellent with the dining room leading into the large social kitchen/breakfast room which is well fitted with an extensive range of cream country-style units with a range cooker, a large American Subzero double fridge and a butlers sink with window above with views of the garden and beyond. There is ample space in the kitchen/breakfast room for a good sized dining table and sofa, with a gas fire being a focal point set within a brick surround, and with French doors out to the garden. The sitting room is generously proportioned with an open fire and with doors leading through to the stunning conservatory to the rear. There is
also a study to the front of the property as well as a utility room off the kitchen and a downstairs WC which complete the ground floor accommodation.
Of particular note on the first floor is the spectacular large master bedroom which is vaulted into the roof to enhance the feeling of space and light, with one wall of windows spanning the entire width of the room, two of which open out onto Juliet balconies with expansive views. There are some excellent cupboards and a large vaulted ensuite with both bath and shower.
There are further four double bedrooms, two of which are also vaulted to the roof, with the second bedroom having an ensuite shower room and the three further bedrooms are served by the family bathroom, again vaulted to the roof.
Little Gables occupies a commanding position with lovely views to the rear, being within Ashmore Green. Locally, the village of Cold Ash is at the top of Ashmore Green, a great community with a shop/post office, two public houses, the primary schools of St Mark's and the Catholic St Finian's plus the girls' private school Downe House. In addition there are tennis, cricket and football clubs, a huge village green, a playground, village hall and Church. Newbury and Thatcham are both accessible, each having major communications including rail links at both, with the M4 motorway junction under 3 miles north of the village. Excellent shopping facilities are found in Newbury alongside boutiques, specialist shops, a theatre and cinema, good restaurants, public houses, the Newbury Race Course and the Kennet and Avon Canal which runs through the heart of the town.
Approached via a five bar gate to a gravelled driveway with parking for a number of cars, there is also an integral garage. To the rear of the property, there is a decking area immediately adjacent to the house which is perfect spot for dining or relaxation from which to enjoy the wonderful views. The garden is largely laid to lawn, with a good variety of trees and shrubs and some carefully planted borders. The border at the base of the garden has been defined, but not to detract from the views beyond.
