Tenure: Freehold

Beautifully presented detached Grade II Listed cottage with planning permission for extension in an idyllic position overlooking the beautiful woodland of Bucklebury Common.


Pear Tree Cottage is situated on Byles Green, a specified Quiet
Lane in Upper Bucklebury. While enjoying this exclusive position,
with country walks on the door step, Upper Bucklebury offers a
local shop, a church, primary school and a public house.
The property is within easy reach of local shops and supermarkets, fitness centres and the main line railway station providing direct access to London Paddington. There are theatres at Newbury and Bagnor, just outside Newbury. There are a number of golf courses nearby and of course horse racing at Newbury. The property is in the catchment area for Park House Secondary School, with a number of public schools in the area, including Downe House, St Gabriel's, Elstree and Cheam.


Pear Tree Cottage dates from the 18th century and is Grade II Listed offering immensely characterful accommodation with a superb modern sitting room extension. The property offers a perfect blend of features including delightful original windows, exposed beams and an open fireplace and is wonderfully situated on a quiet lane opposite the common.
Internally the cottage offers a good sized hallway, off which can be found a double aspect kitchen with a blue two oven Rayburn. Opposite this there is a dining room with exposed wooden flooring, open fireplace and panelled mantelpiece. The dining room is open in to the study and this in turn leads in to the vaulted sitting room with bi-folding doors on to the terrace area. The study also benefits from access in to a large storage room above.

The ground floor also features a beautifully re-fitted bathroom suite with drench shower and a utility room opening on to the terrace.
The first floor provides three lovely bedrooms, with views over the gardens and towards the common.
To the front of the property there is a pretty garden with lawns and a front path edged with lavender and roses. The front garden is enclosed by mature hedging and a picket fence.
Immediately to the rear of the cottage there is a south facing decked terraced area providing a private sun trap. Steps lead up from here to the gardens mainly laid to lawn with shrub borders. A gate leads in to a paddock, approximately 0.22 acres, providing space for livestock, used by the current owners to accommodate a fenced duck enclosure, polytunnel and large fruit cage.
There is also a detached garage to the side of the property and two garden sheds, with the garage and one of the sheds supplied with mains electricity.

Planning permission has been granted for further extension from the sitting room to provide further flexible accommodation which could be used as a study, additional living space or guest bedroom, with a cloakroom. PP 15/03328/House. LBC 15/03329/LBC2
