Overview
Midsummer House is a modern four double bedroom detached family home with all four bedrooms en-suite. Set in about 2.25 acres of land, it is far back from any road noise or intrusion in secluded, south west facing, park like grounds in the centre of Kintbury.

With just a 10 minute stroll to Kintbury mainline railway station, passing the corner store on the way to pick up a morning paper, in about an hour you will be in London Paddington station.

The aptly named Midsummer House backs on to its own paddock that has numerous beautiful mature English trees. Thus the whole of the garden is surrounded by natures green. Midsummer House has been recognised as having one of the most beautiful garden locations in the country, and has been awarded a mention in the coveted Yellow Book - National Garden Scheme for two years running.

The house has about 0.75 acres of superb lawns and flower beds, and is completed by its own 1.5 acre arboretum meadow. The house is about 2,850 square foot (not measured).

The house has full double glazing, and air conditioning that covers nearly every room of the house. A high temperature air sourced heat pump is used for all heating and hot water.

Please note that the photographs of the garden are taken from different years to show the sheer delight the garden is capable of, the latest photographs of the garden can be seen through the windows taken in February 2016.

Kintbury village

The thriving village of Kintbury stands alongside the Kennet and Avon canal between the market towns of Hungerford and Newbury. Local facilities include a Primary School, Doctors, Post Office, Shops, good Sport facilities, Church and Pubs, together with a mainline railway station connecting to Newbury and Reading.

Newbury has an excellent range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities, and national motorways and Heathrow Airport are accessible via the M4 at junctions 13 & 14. Schools in the area include St Gabriels, Cheam and Marlborough.

Kintbury is the quintessential English village, with summer fetes, bowling green, and a good community spirit.

Kintbury has the enviable position of being located in the centre of an area of outstanding natural beauty, surrounded on all sides by fields.
