Winchester Road, Whitway, Newbury, Hampshire, RG20
A substantial contemporary property which has been well thought out to satisfy modern day living, with generous accommodation arranged over two floors. Within the curtilege is an excellent detached annexe which offers versatility and could be used either as secondary accommodation, garaging or as a home office or a combination of all three.
Generous reception space is offered with a sitting room featuring a woodburning stove and double doors to the rear garden. This leads in to the family room with wonderful large roof windows and bi-fold doors to outside. There is also a study, a separate dining room as well as a fully fitted high-style kitchen/breakfast room again with doors to outside. A cloakroom completes the downstairs accommodation.
On the first floor the master bedroom has an en-suite shower room, as does the guest bedroom. The two further bedrooms are served by the well appointed family bathroom.
The detached barn/annexe is an attractive wooden clad building offering a cavernous downstairs space with heat reflective laminate oak bi-fold doors and windows. There is a fitted kitchen along one wall with granite worktops, with the Italian porcelain tiled floor extending throughout the barn and garaging area. A spiral staircase leads to the loft/hobby room which has a separate WC. The barn has been constructed in such a way that it could be adapted to include further garaging if required or indeed as an annexe/secondary accommodation.
The property is located in Whitway, which boasts the renowned Carnarvon Arms and is only a short distance to Highclere Castle, whilst the Dew Pond public house is within walking distance. Whitway is situated just outside the desirable village of Burghclere, which hosts a number of recreational activities and offers a church, cricket ground and local pub. There are both primary and secondary schools, both well thought of, in addition to an excellent selection of private schools in the vicinity including Elstree, Cheam, Fairleigh, St Gabriel's, Thorngrove, Bradfield College and Downe House. The property is conveniently placed for access to the wider area via the major trunk roads - the A34, M4 and M3.
The nearby market town of Newbury offers excellent shopping, its own theatre and cinema, a choice of restaurants, a retail park and the Kennet and Avon canal. The property is ideally situated in the heart of glorious countryside and locally there are stunning views into North Hampshire and towards Watership Down. Endless walking, cycling and riding opportunities are available locally.
Approached via a 5 bar gate which opens into a sizeable block paved courtyard area which offers ample parking for a number of vehicles between the house and the barn. There are two garages attached to the barn/annexe, one double and one single. To the rear is a well maintained garden, with a large area of lawn which is flanked by a variety of mature shrubbery and some high hedging. There are two wooden sheds offering excellent storage.
