Property description

Swallows Rest is a beautiful detached, double fronted period property. The property has been updated and extended over recent years and provides generous family accommodation arranged over two floors. There is an opportunity to develop the space further, subject to the relevant planning consents.

On entering the property there is a well proportioned family room with fireplace and woodburner, and a large sitting/dining room again with a fireplace and door to the conservatory at the rear. The fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room is at the end of the entrance hall, leading off this is a utility room and downstairs WC. The conservatory runs across much of the width of the property which provides excellent dining/entertaining space with skylights and French doors to the garden and patio. On the first floor there is a good master bedroom with lovely views of the village of Cold Ash and the countryside beyond through double aspect windows, and an ensuite shower room. There are three bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Situation
The property is located in the sought after village of Cold Ash. The village boasts two public houses, and a village shop/post office. The village park hosts many sporting activities including cricket and a thriving tennis club that is open to villagers for a small fee. Newbury has an abundance of good restaurants, cinema, shopping and recreational activities. Local schools are excellent; there are two primary schools in the village and a choice of several very good secondary schools in Newbury and Thatcham such as the Kennet and St Bartholomew's. There are also several highly rated independent schools either within Cold Ash or close-by such as Downe House, Brockhurst, Bradfield College and Elstree.

Outside
Swallows Rest is set within 1/3 of an acre plot, with the rear garden being mainly laid to lawn with a double level decked sun terrace at the end of the garden, and gated access to Spring Lane. The patio area is just outside the conservatory, ideal for al-fresco dining. Approaching the property to the front there is a gravelled driveway and off road parking for multiple vehicles as well as a small front garden. A good sized detached garage and a large fully insulated cabin which could be used as a home office, gym or studio are found to the side of the property (these can also both be accessed via the driveway.)

Additional Information
Mains Electricity, Water and Drainage. Gas Fired Central Heating.
