Highclere Street, Highclere, Newbury, RG20
Formerly 3 barns, this splendid and unique Grade II Listed property sits in an elevated position close to Highclere village. It offers exceptional living space largely arranged on the ground floor. The structure of the building is quite magnificent, with every thought having been given to modern day living and a large investment having been made into state of the art tech systems. The principal living rooms are vaulted and of excellent proportions with a couple of mezzanine areas offering additional leisure / study space. All of the bedrooms have well appointed ensuite shower rooms / bathrooms and the rooms largely enjoy wonderful aspects, with some having doors immediately out to the garden. Of particular note is the glass walkway which connects the main barn to the bedroom accommodation, featuring a delightfully secluded courtyard garden with mature and profuse plants.
On approach to Top Farm Barns, there is a barn to the left hand side with 4 parking spaces in front of it, with the entrance to the main house being immediately opposite. The rear garden is largely laid to lawn interspersed with a variety of mature shrubs and trees and with a sizeable terrace adjacent to the house provides generous dining space for entertaining and boasts a 6 person hot tub. A gate provides vehicular access and additional parking if required. At the base of the garden there are wonderful far-reaching rural views over fields beyond with a back-drop of trees; we understand that during the winter months there is a distant view of Highclere Castle. The separate barn is a fabulous wooden structure which currently serves as a garage/storage. However, it offers much scope for development, subject to the necessary consents.
Highclere is an extremely popular village with a well-established community situated to the south of Newbury. The village is well known for its castle and surrounded by some stunning countryside designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Features such as the Kennet and Avon Canal, the North Hampshire Downs including Watership Down and the delightful Bourne Valley are ideal for walking and cycling. The village also boasts a pretty church, whilst nearby Woolton Hill has a local shop, Post Office and primary and junior schools. Highclere is well placed for access to the A34, and therefore the M4 and south to the A303/M3. Newbury lies approximately 4 miles to the north, with its railway station and regular services to London Paddington, Reading and the West Country.
