An impressive contemporary family home which occupies a prominent position within the heart of the popular village of Kingsclere. Exceptional accommodation is arranged over three floors with a detached garage block with office/studio over. Walnut House was designed by our clients and traditionally constructed in 2012 to the highest insulation specifications including insulated concrete floors to all levels and with underfloor heating throughout. The property has been painstakingly thought out with great attention paid to detail, with the natural light being accentuated by open plan accommodation, neutral décor and large windows with overall a feeling of light, space and an overriding feeling of serenity.
On entering the property there is a stylish and welcoming entrance area with spacious dining area plus a cloakroom. Double doors lead through to the living area which incorporates the kitchen / informal dining and sitting area which is focussed around the log burner. There are three sets of bi-fold doors which open out to the undercover alfresco area and garden beyond.
A stunning glass stairway leads from the hallway up to the first floor and opens immediately into a seating area, again with bi-fold doors on to a first floor terrace with views to the front. The principal bedroom boasts bi-fold doors opening to reveal a wonderful view of gardens to the rear and benefitting from a fully fitted dressing room which leads through to a spacious en-suite bathroom with separate shower. There are 3 further bedrooms which have either an en-suite shower room or bathroom. The lower ground floor boasts a cinema room in addition to a laundry room and a service cupboard.
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, St. Gabriels and Elstree.
Approached via wooden electric gates is a large block paved driveway which can accommodate numerous vehicles in front of the detached double garage. The front garden is elevated from the road and is mainly laid to lawn, featuring a beautiful Walnut tree in the centre of the lawn which is bordered by fencing and wrought iron railings.
