142 Newtown Road is a handsome Victorian semi-detached house arranged over 5 floors which the present owners have restored to create a wonderful family home. The house has retained many of its beautiful period features including original windows, cornicing, picture rails and ceiling roses. There are striking period fireplaces in many of the rooms and the ceilings are exceptionally high throughout. On the roof of the house is an original 'belvedere' from which the lane to the left of the property takes its name. Interestingly The Law Society evacuated to the house in 1939 to protect their records from destruction during the war.

Steps lead up to the front door on the raised ground floor and into the entrance hall. To the rear overlooking the garden is a fabulous drawing room with a pair of floor to ceiling sash windows with ornamental Juliet balconies. The period fireplace is cast iron with marble surround and the floor has exposed boards. To the front is the dining room with a splay bay sash window and a black marble fire surround and gas point. On the lower ground floor is the kitchen fitted with a smart range of modern wall base and drawer units with a Corrian worktop. There is an electric range style cooker with an induction hob and a 'Rangemaster' extractor hood above. The large windows and door overlook the garden making this a light and bright room. To the front is a spacious family room and beneath the front steps is the utility room and cloakroom. To the side of the property is a temporary lean-to store which could be replaced to provide a garden room.

Upstairs on the first floor there are two double bedrooms and the family bathroom which is fitted with a lovely white suite including a large bath, separate shower cubicle and exposed floorboards. The second floor has three bedrooms and a cupboard ideally suited to become a shower room. On the third floor there is a studio room, with Velux windows providing views to the north and east and there is direct access to attic storage space. From here a ladder leads up through the belvedere to the roof terrace from where a stunning 360 degree panoramic view can be enjoyed.

On each half landing is a small study.


Outside the garden measure 107 ft x 37<50 ft has a paved patio leading to an attractive lawn surrounded with mature trees, shrubs and plants. A gravelled area provides off street parking for numerous cars and there is a single garage whicyh could be converted into a studio (subject to necessary consents).


From Bartholomew Street in central Newbury travel south across the roundabout and continue into Newtown Road. Number 142 is situated halfway down on the left hand side next to Belvedere Drive.
