Grange Farm, Long Lane, Newbury, Berkshire, RG14
The property is beautifully presented and offers well planned, spacious and light accommodation over two floors. The entrance hall provides access to the sitting room which features a wood-burning stove and opens out into the generous conservatory, the ideal spot from which to enjoy views over the garden. The study also leads off the entrance hall; a most important room in the current climate. The kitchen/diner is a wonderful sociable area with an extensive range of units and appliances, ample dining space and French doors out to the garden. A utility room leads off the kitchen, leading in turn through to the ground floor guest bedroom suite comprising a good sized double bedroom with en-suite shower room. A cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.
The first floor offers a generous principal bedroom with a range of built-in wardrobes and an en-suite with both shower and bath. The second bedroom also benefits from an en-suite shower room whilst two further bedrooms are served by the main bathroom. There is also an integral garage.
The property is situated just off Long Lane between Newbury and Hermitage. Newbury is just under 3 miles away and offers extensive shopping, its own theatre, a choice of restaurants and bistros and the Kennet and Avon canal runs through the heart of the town. Excellent access if offered to the M4 motorway (Junction 13) via the Newbury bypass (A34). Newbury rail station provides easy access to London Paddington in under an hour. In an AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), there is stunning countryside on the doorstep including walks/bridle paths directly accessible from the property. Local schools are highly regarded; there is a primary school in nearby Curridge and The Downs secondary school within the vicinity and catchment. There are also several independent schools such as Downe House, Brockhurst, Marlston House, Horris Hill, Elstree, St. Gabriels and Bradfield College.
The driveway is approached via a 5 bar gate with high hedging offering a good degree of privacy, which opens out into a large gravelled area which can accommodate numerous cars in addition to the integral double (tandem) garage.
The garden to the rear is largely lawned, again bordered by high hedging interspersed with mature trees and with a decking/seating area accessible from the kitchen. A further large lawn is located to the side of the house from which total privacy and wonderful rural views can be enjoyed. An elevated decking area is just the perfect spot for dining and entertaining. A sizeable workshop offers further scope and potential to become a home office. Beyond the formal garden is a large, more informal garden, ideal for growing vegetables or simply to just enjoy the peace and quiet.
