Full description

Old Oak Cottage is an attractive period cottage which has been sympathetically extended by the current owner. The property dates back to the 17th century and boasts a wealth of character throughout. The house sits in a wonderful position within this popular village and benefits from just under half an acre of garden.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors and has been extended on both sides at the rear. Downstairs, in the old part of the house, the reception rooms have beautiful exposed beams and the original inglenook fireplace with bread oven and wood burning stove make a wonderful focal point. There is an additional fireplace with a wood burning stove in the drawing room, and beyond this there is an amazing snooker room, which could also be used as a family room. On the other side of the house the well-appointed modern kitchen overlooks the garden and a door leads out to the terrace.

Upstairs the four bedrooms include the master bedroom with en suite bath and shower room, guest bedroom with en suite shower, two further bedrooms and a cleverly designed family bathroom.

Old Oak Cottage is situated to the west of Newbury in the small rural village of Weston. The river Lambourn runs through the village, and with its idyllic water meadows it is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The nearby village of Great Shefford offers good local amenities with a shop, post office and public house.

A wider range of leisure and shopping facilities is available in Newbury including cafes and restaurants, a cinema, the renowned Watermill Theatre and Newbury racecourse. There is a fast train service into London Paddington taking from 52 minutes, and the A34 and M4 are easily accessible providing excellent links to London and the national road network.

The house is approached from the village lane and there is a gravel driveway and parking area in front of the garage.

The beautiful, well established garden faces south west and is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature shrubs and trees. A wide terrace wraps around the house and pretty steps lead up to the main area of garden, beyond which are open fields. In addition to the garage there is a workshop and a summerhouse.
