Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Henwick Old Cottage occupies an extremely convenient position between Cold Ash and Thatcham. Cold Ash has an excellent range of day to day facilities including a primary school, village shop/post office and two public houses. A wider range of amenities can be found at both Newbury and Thatcham where there are main line stations with trains to London Paddington. The area is well served with both primary and secondary schools as well as many independent schools.


Henwick Old Cottage is a wonderful Grade II Listed thatched house believed to date from the seventeenth century. The house is brimming with character, having beams throughout and retaining many original features. A documented history of the house is available upon request. The cottage has been sympathetically updated throughout.


On the ground floor there is a wonderful kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a comprehensive range of contemporary units and appliances and which now provides a superb living space with its vaulted ceiling, tiled and wood burner in the original fireplace.

Across the hall from the kitchen is a study or play room looking out over the gardens. There is a brick floored dining room/occasional lounge, and a beautiful oak-floored sitting room with Inglenook fireplace, period fittings and a large window overlooking the front garden. The accommodation continues with a family room at the far end of the house and a utility room, office and a cloakroom to the rear.

The first floor offers two beautifully proportioned double bedrooms served by a refitted family bathroom. There is a further double bedroom and a shower room with WC, this last bedroom also benefits from generous fitted storage space.

A further staircase leads up to two vaulted attic rooms which would make perfect children's bedrooms. There is a feature panel on this floor exposing some of the original wattle and daub construction of the property.

Outside, the property is approached from a lane at the rear, which leads to the double garage and has a pathway and steps leading to the back door. A further pathway continues around the side of the house to the south facing garden which is fenced and includes several mature trees. There is a flat lawn and a feature pond. To the north of the house there is a double garage with a room to the rear which would make a useful workshop or garden room and could hold other possibilities including a guest annex or home office, subject to any necessary planning consents. A staircase within the garage leads up to an attic storage space. To the side of the garage there is a lawn which provides a children's play area and an orchard with several mature fruit trees.

Note: There are paddocks and stables to the rear of the property which the owner informs us may be available to rent from a third party.


From Newbury, take the A4 East towards Thatcham, at the Wyevale garden centre roundabout, take the second exit on to Tull Way, signposted towards Cold Ash. Immediately after the 30mph speed signs, turn left in to Ashmore Green Road and pass Henwick Old Farm on the right, Henwick Old Cottage is the next property on the right, with a track immediately after the house leading up to the garage for parking.
