Superbly presented period cottage in desirable village location.


South Cottage is positioned within the much sought after village of Highclere. The village is close to the market town of Newbury with excellent road and rail connections. Officially designated an Area of Outstanding Beauty, within a few minutes you can find a maze of country lanes, footpaths and National Trust woodland in which to explore the area.

In the immediate vicinity there is the famous Highclere Castle, a GP surgery, village shop with post office, a number of public houses, well regarded primary school and junior schools, church, village hall with a pre-school nursery, and a thriving tennis club in nearby Woolton Hill.

Newbury itself offers a comprehensive range of shopping, recreational and leisure facilities including racing at Newbury racecourse. There are several golf courses nearby and several fitness centres. Local theatres include the Corn Exchange and the nationally recognised Watermill at Bagnor.


South Cottage is a beautifully presented period cottage which has been lovingly cared for and as a result offers charming period features with the convenience of modern living, which is both practical and versatile. The current owners have done a fantastic job of presenting the property tastefully throughout.

Internally the house offers some stunning living spaces, particularly the three main reception rooms. The kitchen/breakfast room is a fantastic space positioned in the heart of the house, which gives access to both the sitting room and dining room. The large sitting room, complete with fireplace is a welcoming space perfect for entertaining. This sitting room runs seamlessly into the adjoining conservatory which offers lovely views of the rear garden. The dining room is a light and welcoming space also featuring a traditional fireplace. A cloakroom completes the downstairs accommodation.

The bedroom accommodation is also superb. The master bedroom offers built in storage and a lovely view over the garden. There are a further two bedrooms one of which features exposed period beams. There is also a well appointed family bathroom which completes the first floor accommodation.

Outside, the property is approached from the road over a parking area with space for several cars. The gardens are ideal for outside entertaining and are mainly laid to lawn with mature boarders and trees and offer a high degree of privacy. A very useful garden store can also be found in the rear garden.

Square Footage: 1,456 sq ft
