Full description

A delightful property (with great further potential if required) in a wonderful setting with gardens and grounds. EPC rating G.

Cootes is located in an attractive rural setting on the southern edge of Crookham Common, overlooking its own mature gardens and grounds. Newbury is a short distance away and has excellent everyday facilities and there is a local shop and post office in Headley.

Communications are excellent by road via the M3 or M4 and by rail via either Newbury, Basingstoke or Thatcham stations. There are numerous footpaths and bridleways in the surrounding area of unspoilt common land, to which you both direct and un-restricted access to approximately 750 acres of Greenham Common and Crookham Common. Sporting opportunities in the area including racing at Newbury; golf at Kingsclere and Newbury.

Cootes is a Georgian property with later additions. It is privately located across the common and is the last property accessed by the track. The property is a wonderful family home and offers great scope for further development, with potential to extend further,
subject to planning. The property is not Listed, nor is it located in a Conservation Area or an AONB.

There are 4 reception rooms, including a large, triple aspect drawing room with an open fireplace. Beyond the kitchen/breakfast room is the large conservatory, which in turn leads to the terrace, from which wonderful views can be enjoyed of the surrounding countryside and is ideal for outdoor entertaining.


From Newbury proceed east on the A339 towards Kingsclere. Before you approach Headley, take the first left at the roundabout onto Thornford Road. From the roundabout on the A339 it is half a mile to the left turning signposted to veterinary surgery then proceed onto the common (passing the fork on your left with a board with various property names on it, including Cootes). Over the cattle grid and bearing left for about a quarter of a mile, Cootes is the last property at the end of the track.
