Full description

Atkinson Keene have pleasure in marketing 76 Craven Road. The stunning double fronted Victorian home really does have the "wow" factor. It benefits from two reception rooms, a beautiful modern fitted kitchen with a dining area, downstairs cloakroom, study, four double bedrooms and family bathroom. There is parking to the rear of the property for two vehicles as well as permit parking to the front. The "secret"stairs lead to the large attic, ideal for renovation or simply for storage. The property has modern day living in mind but retains beautiful characteristics of the Victorian era and is located in one of Newbury's sought after areas. Craven Road is in the catchment area of the well regarded St Bartholomew School and is a short walk to the train station and Town Centre.

Accommodation - You enter the property via the large reception hall which has an original archway with ornate plaster corbels. A door leads into the formal lounge, the first thing you notice is the light and airy feel and the sense of space enhanced by the high ceilings reminiscent of its era. Sash windows look out onto the beautiful enclosed garden to the side of the property and to the front. The focal point fireplace has a wood burner, ideal for cold winter evenings. The hall sweeps down to the cloakroom, study and utility, with a side door leading into the garden. The stunning kitchen leads from the hall and has a beautiful range of base and wall mounted units with granite worktops and splashbacks, belfast sink and feature handmade tiled cooker surround all finished to a high standard. The dining area sits under a beautiful roof lantern and has french doors which lead out to the patio, ideal for alfresco dining. Both the kitchen and dining area are complimented by tiled underfloor heating. The second reception room can be accessed through the kitchen or the hall. The room has a feature fireplace with a marble surround and large sash windows which overlook the front of the property, again the high ceilings give the sense of space throughout this stunning home.

Stairs sweep up to the half landing which has a large window overlooking the rear of the property and allows plenty of natural light. Further steps then lead to the main landing. The master bedroom is located to the front of the property and looks out over Craven Road. A panelled door gives access to bedroom four from the master, giving the option and versatility to be used as a bedroom, dressing room or converted to form an ensuite bathroom. There is also a door which gives access to steps that lead to the large attic. This could provide further accommodation subject to planning. Another two double bedrooms can be found off the main landing. Both have built-in wardrobes and large windows. They have a modern feel yet still have the essence of the Victorian era. The stylish family bathroom has been finished to a very high standard and comprises of a stand alone double ended rolled top bath, vanity unit hand wash basin, low level WC and separate shower cubicle complimented by handmade tiles.

To the front of the property is a gravelled area with a small brick wall. The double fronted elevation is enhanced by trellis and mature shrubs.
