Positioned towards the front of the plot the house is of brick construction under a tiled roof. It is in the Conservation Area next door to Basing House, once an enormous mansion, which was besieged by Cromwells army during the Civil War. A feature of the property is the front wall which is up to 2 feet wide, believed to be 16th Century.
The house has been carefully updated and is best described as full of character. In the older part, oak framed leaded light windows predominate. The appealing dual aspect drawing room has beams and a gas coal stove set in the fireplace. Facing the front is a roomy study. The TV sitting room at the back looks out to the garden and the kitchen has a range of fitted units plus integrated appliances. There is a downstairs bathroom. The beamed cellar has deep sill windows and is nearly as large as the drawing room; it has a wood block floor and is used as a dining room, seating up to twelve in comfort (ideal for entertaining).
Upstairs the refurbished, comfortable triple aspect master bedroom is light and airy. There are four further bedrooms and a bathroom.
The front garden has lawns bordered by old walls and hedges, with a parking area. The back garden is a good size, with trees and flowerbeds. There is a flagstone patio for eating out in summer and the view over adjacent parkland completes the pleasing aspect.
6 The Street is conveniently situated for local shops and facilities, many of which are within walking distance-including two OFSTED outstanding schools.
