3 bedroom semi-detached house for saleKnowle Crescent, Kingsclere, Newbury
Sold STC £325,000
Atkinson Keene have pleasure in offering this rare opportunity to purchase a chalet style bungalow situated in the beautiful downland village of Kingsclere. The property requires some modernising but has huge potential to become a stunning family home. There are two double bedrooms and a large single, good size lounge, kitchen, downstairs cloakroom, sun room, garage and large workshop. The property is nestled in a cul-de-sac with views over Kingsclere but is still within walking distance of the village.
Kingsclere has a selection of local shops and businesses, healthcare services, primary school and varied outdoor facilities. It also has an extensive network of green lanes and paths, glades, the Kingsclere steam and Watership Down. Treasured areas known by villagers such as The Rec, The Ducks and Shepheards Steps are usually overlooked by the casual visitor, but add greatly to village life.
Accommodation - You enter the property and find yourself in the large hall. A door directly leads into the kitchen which does require updating, this is a good size and large enough for a table and chairs. A large double window overlooks the mature rear garden and allows plenty of natural light. The kitchen leads into the downstairs cloakroom and then into the garage. To the rear of the property is a "sun room" with French doors leading out into the garden. The large lounge leads from the hall. As you enter this room you notice its light and airy feel due to the fact that it has a large window overlooking the front of the property and double sliding doors leading out into the garden. A focal point fireplace with a wood burner compliments the room as does the original parquet flooring which runs throughout the lounge and hall.
Stairs sweep up to the first floor with a window between floors allowing for light penetration and lovely views. The large master bedroom overlooks the back garden and beyond, it has a built in eaves cupboard and can easily accommodate a good size double bed and furniture. The second room is also a double and has a large window overlooking the front of the property with far reaching views across the village. The third room is a good size single, with all three bedrooms complimented by wooden flooring. The family bathroom has a cream three piece suite comprising of a hand wash basin, low level WC and panelled bath with an electric shower over and part tiled walls. The airing cupboard can also be found on the landing which houses the water cylinder and useful storage.
To the front of the property is a large driveway with an area of lawn surrounded by mature shrubs and plants. The garage and workshop can be accessed from the drive, both of which have power and light. Directly under the front of the window is a seating area which allows you to soak up the lovely view. The beautiful rear garden has an area of patio with steps leading to the lawn which is surrounded by mature shrubs and trees. The garden has two secrets, one being a gate which takes you out onto a long used track. This takes you on a beautiful walk to "The Dell", a must for any new visitors to the village. The second is a door partially covered which takes you into a large versatile workshop with light and power.
Knowle Crescent has been a much loved home which is evident as soon as soon as you walk into the hall. The property would benefit from some modernising but has been well maintained and would make a beautiful home in a lovely location.
