Orchard Cottage is a handsome 6 bedroom property offering spacious accommodation arranged over two floors (in excess of 3000 sq'). The accommodation is extremely versatile and allows the possibility of having multi-generational living or a home office space, slightly detached from the rest of the house. Excellent reception space is provided with a sitting room, dining room and study, all with generous proportions. The kitchen/dining/family room has a range of hand-built units with granite worktops and a gas fired cream Aga and features an impressive lantern roof and bi-fold doors on two walls, providing access out to the rear garden. There is also a laundry room and a cloakroom as well as a small kitchen (or utility) area with a secondary staircase leading up to the potential home office/games room on the first floor. Should secondary accommodation be required, this room would serve as a sitting room, which with two bedrooms and a shower room would provide an excellent self-contained unit. The main staircase to the first floor leads to a principal bedroom with fitted cupboards and an ensuite shower room plus a family bathroom featuring a freestanding roll-top bath, serving three further bedrooms.
The house is set back from the road with a block paved driveway offering parking for numerous cars as well as an integral garage. The enclosed rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with some mature trees and shrubs. A generous paved patio is adjacent to the house offering the perfect spot for al fresco dining, particularly when the bi-fold doors are open. An elevated decking area at the bottom of the garden houses a summer house and affords a lovely view of the house and garden.
Orchard Cottage is located on the north side of Newbury with wonderful country walks close at hand including to Donnington Castle and surrounds. The excellent amenities of Newbury are also accessible locally, including Waitrose and the Parkway Shopping Centre. Newbury itself is a very accessible location as it offers access to rail and road communication routes including the M4 motorway (Junction 13) via the A34 Newbury bypass. Newbury station provides access to London Paddington in under an hour. The town has much to offer with its own theatre, cinema, a choice of restaurants, Newbury Racecourse and the Kennet and Avon canal runs through the heart of the town. The surrounding area is well served in respect of both state and private schools, the latter including Horris Hill Preparatory School, St Gabriel's, Brockhurst & Marlston, Cheam School, Downe House and Elstree School.
