Quarry Cottages, Sydmonton, Burghclere, Newbury, RG20
A delightful semi-detached period cottage in a wonderful rural location with much character. The ground floor flows seamlessly from one room to the next, with a lovely light sitting room featuring a wood-burning stove and bay window. The sitting room opens through to a separate dining room which in turn leads to the conservatory which has double doors out on to the terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room is a sociable room, having space for family dining.
On the first floor are two double bedrooms, both with fitted cupboards, and a third smaller bedroom. The bathroom is well appointed with a white suite. There is an excellent eaves cupboard which offers useful storage space.

Rural views both to the front and rear are just stunning.
