New Road is a pleasant no-through road, part of the original Racecourse development and just about within a stone’s throw of the Racecourse itself.
Within half a mile of the Racecourse train station and 0.7 of a mile from the town centre train station. Close to Stroud Green and a short walk to Greenham Common.
Less than a mile into Newbury town centre for its shops, restaurants, pubs and the Corn Exchange.
Easy access to A4/A339/A34 and M4.
On the ground floor a spacious entrance hall with beautiful original teak wood block flooring opens to the other rooms. The large, airy sitting room also has its warm, attractive wood block flooring – and a serving hatch to the kitchen, a feature now much missed from newer properties.
A sunroom/conservatory was recently added, but as a modern floating design could easily be removed leaving behind a paved patio beneath.
The kitchen is thoughtfully laid out, with a utility/larder/breakfast room adjacent.
Practical touches include under-stairs storage and a downstairs WC.
On the first floor, the bright and airy master is a good double, the second bedroom is another good double, the third a small double/large single, and the 4th a single bedroom.
A smart family bathroom is spacious, and has a shower over the bath.
The garage has an electric roller door to the front, and a single pedestrian door to the rear.
At the front of the house, a smart block-paved driveway has space for at least two full-sized cars, with a gravelled area to the left with space for at least one more.
The back garden is multi-level, with a flagged patio area to the rear, and a gravel border. The first terraced step has an area of artificial grass, a lovely stone flagged patio, and raised beds with red brick retaining walls to the side & back. The whole garden is enclosed with closeboarded fence panels, with a selection of mature shrubs and plants in the beds.
There is side pedestrian access with a secure gate.
