Garrett Close, Kingsclere, Newbury, Hampshire, RG20
An exceptional, beautifully presented detached property with stylish accommodation arranged over two floors. During the recent renovation programme, great care has been taken by the current owners to consider all aspects of modern day living and they have created a most exceptionally stylish home.
The ground floor offers a generous sitting room with bay window to the front, a feature fireplace and doors out to the terrace. The inner hall leads to the dining room which opens into an exquisite kitchen, fitted to a high specification with sleek contemporary units and integrated appliances. A central island offers space for informal dining with an Italian marble top which complements the flooring.
The first floor offers a principal bedroom which has a dressing area with wardrobes on each side, leading to the en-suite shower room. There are 3 further double bedrooms all served by the well appointed main bathroom. Excellent storage is provided, with all of the bedrooms boasting built-in wardrobes, with additional storage cupboards on the landing.
Kingsclere has an excellent range of amenities including two village shops, churches, hairdressers, Post Office, the Fieldgate Community Centre with sports field and a medical centre. The village offers good access to both Newbury and Basingstoke along the A339 and as a result, both the M4 and M3 motorways are easily accessible. Mainline rail services can be found both at Newbury (Paddington) and Basingstoke or Overton (Waterloo). A regular bus service runs between the two major towns as well.
In terms of education, Newbury enjoys an excellent reputation with a number of local schools being particularly highly regarded as well as independent schools close by including Cheam, Horris Hill and Elstree.
Oak House enjoys a prominent position, approached via a driveway from Garrett Close and being flanked on both sides by a well tended lawn bordered by a wonderful variety of shrubs. A block paved driveway provides parking in front of the detached double garage. The interior of the garage is well presented and could be utilised as a gym or other recreational use. The garage has the benefit of a room over which potentially could be converted into a home office. On both sides of the garage and to the other side of the property are stunning wrought iron gates providing access through to the rear garden. With some re-modelling, further parking could be utilised to the side of the garage. The rear garden is a pure delight, with a manicured lawn and borders containing a wide variety of specimen plants and some topiary. A wonderfully large terrace is adjacent to the house and offers the ideal spot for entertaining. A large awning can be extended to provide shade if required.
Note that the neighbouring property has rights of access over the main drive, plus there is the added advantage of two additional parking spaces at the entrance to the main drive.
Mains electricity, water and drainage. Gas fired central heating.
